    I can't add pics, I must not have enough posts. Anywy, hit shoulders today and had a pretty good workout. I feel I could of gone heavier on my DB Shoulder Press, but I am still taking it easy due to my lower back.

    DB Shoulder Press 8 x 4
    Upright Row 3 x 10
    Lat Raises 3 x 10
    Rear delt cable fly 3 x 10
    Face pulls 3 x 12
    BB Shrugs 4 x 12 superset with
    20kg plate press 4 x 15

    Felt good and tomorrow I start my 550-xd for a month of that. So next 2 weeks are 1-Alpha and 550-xd together. Can't wait!

    I'm Back! Man it's been a bit of a hectic week so far and hadn't got any training in since Monday. I have had some sought of stomach bug, like gastro but not the full effects of gastro.... So anyway tonight after work I did a bit legs and back. Bit of a strange combo and I haven't done it before, but I had to make it quick as it was going to get dark and there is no lights outside where I train when I am on site.

    Lunges 7 x 10 (each leg)
    DB Rows 7 x 8
    Glute bridge 4 x 10 with 3 second hold

    I really only through in the DB Rows to fill in time between the lunges.

    I am starting to feel better and hope tomorrow I will be fully over what ever it is, and will train Chest and Tri's a heap better than what legs was today.

    I have been following your log DW and you have done it tough a few times. So seeing someone else work through it helps push me that little bit to push through and hit the weights again.

    So I will try and get out of work that little bit early and smash chest and tri's tonight.

    Adding 5 to 6 practice sessions a week and the extra time on preparing food has taken it's toll. Now I have to make time for deep tissue massage

    Had a good workout tonight and felt even better after it.... I felt fuller and pumped than I have been in a long time. Tonight I did a bit of back, shoulders and bi's

    DB Rows 4 x 8 Superset with BB Shoulder Press 4 x 8
    Incline Bench Row 4 x 12 Superset with Lat Raises
    Upright Row 3 x 8 Superset with Rear Delt Flies 3 x 10
    DB Bicep Curl 3 x 10

    Fly home tomorrow and can't wait to hit the gym, will also weigh myself and see if I have gained weight....look a bit better in the mirror and am thinking I may have lost a little BF and put on a little muscle.

    Take it easy

    Today was supposed to be back, and I did get to it. First up this morning I went dirt bike riding up in the hills for 3 and a half hours.

    Then went to the gym and had to hurry through my work out as the wife wasn't to happy about me taking off for the whole day. So I tried something a bit different and did 2 giant sets. That looked like this.

    Wide lat pull down x 8
    Close grip pulldown x 15
    T bar row x 8
    Cable row x 8
    DB row x 6
    Wide lat pulldown x 12
    Straight arm pulldown x 12

    It was quick and I was already tired from riding, so in the end not a bad workout.

    Those giant sets will get you but they sure are good at driving blood into the muscle!

    Incline DB Bench 3 x 8
    Weighted dips 2 x 8
    Explosive BB bench 2 x 5

    Tri push downs 3 x 8
    Standing calve raises 4 x 10, 1 x 15 and 1 x 20
    DB kickback 3 x 10

    It was a good session and good to be back in the gym.

    Ready sport that weight update probably have some awesome recomp happening right now.
    Think I would have dropped a kilo or two, and I look a bit leaner but my muscles look fuller and better definition.

    This morning I trained shoulders and it went a little like this

    DB Shoulder press 1 x 7, 2 x 5, 1 x 8
    Upright Row 3 x 10 superset shoulder press 3 x 8
    Clean and press 3 x 8
    Face pulls 3 x 10 superset BB Shrugs 3 x 10
    Planks 30 sec x 4

    Last week of 550 xd before starting pct which will be pct revolution, Anabeta, DAA, Creatine.

    Have lost 1.5kg so far, but to be fair on the finaflex products my diet has been a bit all over the place.

    Gonna change up my training starting tomorrow and will have upper and lower program...or maybe follow PHAT program and see how that goes. Any other suggestions for training programs let me know. Goal is to lose some bf but hold onto the muscle I have gained.
