    Thanks boys. Hoping to be Belyaev quality someday.

    10/8/2011
    Single Arm DB OHP 35kg
    4 right 3 left
    2 right 3 left
    5 right 5 left

    I don't know what could cause this. Perhaps I need to spend longer warming up. I now see that the problem with a db is when I load more plates onto the db I am forced to press the db with the db further and further away from my shoulder.

    That's some pretty solid DB pressing :|

    Perhaps I'll be better off with trying to bench more than you can squat then.

    Bench Press 2x5 97.5kg 1x5 87.5kg 1x5 100kg I was sharing the bench with this dude and I miss loaded the weight on the third set. On the final set he told me 2.5kg wouldn't make a difference so I just went with it.
    Squat 165kg 1x5 1x3 1x1
    DB Rows 3x5 46kg
    Curls 3x8 14kg DBs

    On the squat I was just tired. I have developed this bad habit of waking up in the middle of the night and just not being able to go back to sleep. I am thinking of just reading some boring ass book to resume my slumber.

    Nice pressing
    Thanks. I wanna press 100kg by the end of the year.

    22/8/2011
    Bench Press with the worst form ever 3x5 100kg
    Squat 165kg 4/5/3 Once again I had bar sliding issues. On the last rep of the last set the bar was literally halfway down my back.
    DB Rows 3x5 48kg
    Curls

    I need to sort out this bar sliding. Also my wrists feel like they are going to snap when I squat.

    Mate that sounds a tall order. What you press atm? Looking at this page I'm guessing ~75? +25kg on press in 4 months is huge progress !

    :O

    Good luck anyway

    I've pressed 70kg for 3x3. I am going to try and get that for 3x5 in my next gym session rather than bench pressing. To help me in this quest I'm gonna try to gain a lot of weight.

    I just read through your freshers pulling thread and loled at how insecure some people are. If you wanna beat me then lifting is gonna have to be more than just a hobby bro. If you do find out how to pull please let me know as I am going to the halls as a 2nd year. I am more muscular than the rugby players and nerdier than the WoW players.
