    Not done a progress pic in ages.

    14.5 stone
    92 kg

    Calves: 15.5 in
    Thigh: 25.75 in
    Arse: 40.5 in
    Hips: 34.5 in
    Waist: 33 in
    Chest: 39 in relaxed/44 in flared back
    Neck: 15.5 in
    Arms: 13.5 in relaxed/14.5 in flexed

    Reckon high teens bodyfat, perhaps a bit over 20. I store a fair amount on my legs/arse/back and relatively little on stomach and arms.

    Not training for aesthetics but from an aesthetic point of view my arms and shoulders are pretty weak... Not surprising given I hardly train them.

    Nope

    I've been pretty lazy recently. I get access to two gyms with my membership. One is the one xyz and beardbrah train at which is really well equipped but a bit out of my way to get to. One is really poorly equipped (DBs up to 30 and barbells up to about 120kg but only the free foldable benches plus a few machines, but it's right next to my lectures and work. I've been being lazy and going to the close one but it means I'm not doing much interesting lifting. Not really been training legs except for some random leg press given that I'm playing hockey 3x a week minimum and cycling 8-9 miles a day. Recovery not possible if I want to be on form hockey wise. I am getting very fit though which is good. Just a shift in priorities for a season really.

    Oh hi there.

    Went to gym 5 minutes from home with housemates. Reasonably well equipped. Good enough anyway.

    Chins 5x5

    Incline DB bench (BB in use)
    20x5
    24x5
    28x5

    BB bench as soon as it was free
    60x5
    70x5
    80x5,5,5,5

    Deadlifts
    60x10
    100x5
    140x5
    160x4,3
    No chalk and grip failed.

    Rows
    60x6
    70x5,5,5,5

    EZ preacher curls
    bar+14x12,12,11

    No time for CGBP, oh well.

    Not lifted since like end of November. Not trained legs since like mid October. Not played hockey or cycled since early December. Was on study leave for a big set of exams I had early Jan and as I was at home I wasn't even cycling to work etc Hockey re started now. Cycling 10 miles a day to work which is a bit further than I was going to lectures. Gonna join this gym 5 mins from home as I'll actually go if it's nearby (as opposed to a 30 minute cycle/bus trip away). Should get fit again in no time.

    Plan to eat at maintenance/slight deficit to lose some of the christmas surplus fat. Will do a 5x5 LP on the compounds for at least a couple of months.

    Probably go for 80 on bench and 72.5 rows next week. Don't think I'm gonna do squats and deadlifts religiously at least until the hockey season is over.

    Lunches are approx 800 calories and so I get a good chunk to play with at dinner. Todays dinner was 500g of 5% fat beef mince, jar of tomato sauce and 250g whole wheat pasta. Approx 1800 calories. Come at me. Don't expect I'll put on any weight if I stay around 2600 kcal a day whilst cycling/lifting/playing hockey.

    Tired. Hungry. Just cycled home.

    Bench
    80*5,5,5,5,5,5
    Extra set because some idiot interrupted me mid set in 5th so I made him wait a bit too get on.

    Another guy came up to me at start, asked how long so I just let him work in. He declined to warm up, just tried 80kg, failed, said his shoulder hurt from it. Tried again then ran out of the gym clutching his shoulder. Bloody idiot.

    Squats
    60*lots
    100*5. Felt ****
    122.5*5,5,5
    Why do squats feel so bloody horrible? Literally just make me feel **** even if weight itself isn't that hard.

    Rows
    60*5
    70*5
    77.5*5,5,5,5,5

    Also continuing the trend of idiots in this gym. Belted preacher curls. With one of those stupid Lonsdale velcro belts. I don't even...

    ...aaand a guy doing standing press. With a 10 kg plate lying flat on each hand. What's wrong with dumbbells?!?
