    I couldn't concentrate on my workout yesterday while you were spotting that guy on the Bench Mr. Foxy. I can't remember what he was saying except for the fact it was mildly retarded and comical.

    Today's workout will be posted later.

    For now:

    MONDAY:

    Squats (@130kg) - 5/5/5 - Success!
    Bench (@87.5kg) - 5/4/4
    Rows (@85kg) - 5/5/5 - Success!
    Chins (@27.5kg) - 4/3

    Walked into the gym to see a couple of near-identical (white wifebeater, navy trackies, permatan) roid rangers blasting out some EXTREME 6-inch-ROM seated presses. One had some really yummy shoulder acne. Mmmm.

    Squats had been stuck for ages in a really inconsistent performance pattern - I'd hit 5/5/3 and 5/3/1 a few times on 130 before. The previous session (last Friday) I somehow only managed 5/5/0. This incosistency (and the fact I was too fatigued to deadlift anything after my squats) is what forced me off Starting Strength a couple of weeks ago now. Last rep of the last set was VERY close, I'm surprised I left the rack with all of the blood vessels in my head intact.

    Bench was amusing, I trained with a total nutcase who, as Lozzaa mentioned, barked "NO PROBLEM" between every one of his reps. I'm not sure what would've happened if I started laughing but I exercised amazing self-restraint and kept a straight face. He did redeem himself with a good job of spotting (unlike nearly every other fool in the uni gym who, despite strict instruction, can't help fondling the bar) and shouting in my face.

    Rows were good. Chins felt weak. Poo.

    Finally, this is NOT a meal or snack.
    It is just another way to add some JACK.
    Sometimes you have to do things to live your dream.
    And yes, this may mean eating some cream.

    This may not be the best habit to keep,
    but remember when the rest of the world is asleep
    you will be the one paying the price
    as they wake to another day of chicken and rice.

    Sometimes you need to eat healthy to stay clean,
    but I am here to say you may have to eat like **** to be a machine.
    This may be contrary to fact,
    but skinny NOT?let's get jacked.

    If you want to grow up to be like the great King Kong,
    then mark my words, you may need some Ding Dongs.
    Listen up and make sure to get this right.
    It all comes down to calories per bite.

    Some of you may be saying, "Dave, you are whacked."
    This is okay because I?m almost JACKED.
    I have done what I needed to do.
    And yes, I remember the picture at the zoo.

    To keep from getting decked,
    you should get your blood work checked.
    A glass, ice cream, and root beer make a float?
    just what is needed for a monster bloat.

    Please don't get trapped.
    You need to eat big to get JACKED.
    There will be times when you?ll want to quit.
    Walk to the mirror and look through your slits.

    Your face is bloated and looks like dread,
    but your arms are JACKED, you can't shave your head.
    Eating in class once led to after school detention,
    but a must this was to gain water retention.

    Go to the store and hit the cookie isle.
    Load the cart up with a big giant pile.
    When you check out, you will pay the toll.
    Never mind, this is the way to get ?swole.?

    The point I am trying to make
    is really as simple as eating cake.
    Candy bars, subs, and chips are the right track.
    A great daily lunch this is to get JACKED.

    It has to do with more than getting big.
    For some of us, this may mean being a pig.
    You see getting lean is a piece of cake.
    It is getting big that makes most shake.

    The thought of losing their abs
    has them all taking jabs.
    They need to get in the kitchen and crank up ?back in black.?
    Tear open a box of pop tarts and get JACKED.

    They buzz*buzz*buzz l ike mosquitoes
    when all they need is a bag of Doritos.
    I will say this one more time.
    What they say and do is such a crime.

    They have their ass tied and bound.
    Here is a clue?fudge round.
    Diet ing is easy when you set your way.
    Adding mass is without a doubt a different day.

    They have their way, and I have mine,
    but please remember, I walk the line.
    They might have been the head of the class,
    but they can kiss my JACKED up ass!

    Poo, this has slipped my mind a bit. Nice poem, nun.

    Anyway, creatine is cool so I've had a good couple of sessions this week.

    Today (was buzzing RIDICULOUSLY, couldn't stop moving and was really angry for some reason):

    Squats @ 135kg 5/5/4
    Press @ 62.5kg 5/5/5
    Rows @ 90kg 5/5/5

    nice work mate


    we seem to have the same strength for everything, bar the squats.


    when you press, is your form strict or do you use your legs to assist?

    Hmm, again, I'm not good at keeping this journal.

    Thursday:

    Bench @ 90KG - 5/5/5 - good.

    Deadlifts @ 170KG - 3 - don't really know what happened but my back was sloppy and I angrily gave up.

    I started deloading the bar, and rather than deload it to 60 and clean/re-reack it, I left it at 90KG and decided to try some singular cleans for the first time. I probably did them pretty crappily since it was spontaneous and I couldn't remember any of Ripp's advice.

    Cleans @ 90KG 1/1/1/1/1/1

    Chins @ 20KG (reset since I hadn't done them in ages) - 5/5

    Weights and kung fu have been losing out to my workload. Poopy. Still, I'm fairly happy with this session and glad to have finally got myself doing cleans.

    Mediocre workout today:

    Squats @ 132.5KG 5/4/3 - seems I'm stuck again.
    Press @ 65KG - 3/2/2 - no idea what happened there, just felt weak.
    Cleans @ 92.5KG 1/1/0/1/1/1

    Didn't bother with chins, was way too tired.

    Saw Loz doing Fran like a psychopath and burningnun doing bicep curls though, so all in all a good training session.

    Thursday:

    Broke my left ring finger sparring in Wing Chun so I'm not sure how capable I'll be of grip-dependent lifts for the next few weeks. Even typing this up HURTS.

    Beforehand, though, I managed:

    Press @ 65KG: 4/3/3
    Power Cleans @ 97.5KG: 1/1/1/1/1

    Made a 4654 calorie Manwich at lunch - a cheese and sun-dried tomato focaccia filled with cheese, bacon, ham, salami, pepperoni, whole pepperamis, chorizo & pastrami. Didn't finish it though (the shame), so that'll do for today as well. 283g of protein, 142g of carbs, 280g of fat. Mmmm.
