Getting my weak ass back to the gym! Rile me on!!

Hey guys, Just thought id put up a quick update, this is one of my favourite workouts as its mainly dumbells which I love working with, I also had a spotter which allowed me to push myself to the max, you will probably notice that there was no rest pausing on my shoulder and bench press exercises, I just couldnt do it, I rested for my 20 seconds and just couldnt get another rep, I certainly got the job done though, when my 8 reps were finished I started grasping for breath lol. It was one hell of a visit and all lifts went better than expected.

I love the feeling of DOMS. Especially around day 2. But, my loving feelings go away quicker the longer it lasts! Good work man.

Hey all, just a quick update, I wont be posting individual updates anymore but after a few more workouts ill put up a comparison table which should be far easier to interpret

Neither did I :P, I clicked to do check what colours I could have and it just inserted the coding for black, so I took a guess by deleting 'black' and putting in 'red'

Update has just gone up! Im also pleased to say that is shows progression in both comparable exercises!

I wont post up the workout before that but it was up to par, I made 3 reps progress on close grip bench, and too my flat hammer strength press to 45kg (99lbs) 11-3-1,

have you done a routine like this before? were the results significantly different than that of hitting each body part once a week for like 18 sets?
04-21-2009, 11:05 AM
I cannot give you a 100% comparison due to the fact that I have about 30lbs of 'muscle memory' before I started this training due to getting up there and then screwing up it up majorly, however in terms of strength gains (I dont even know my weight, I go by how things look in the mirror), the strength gains on DC have been hugely above what I achieved with once a week training per bodypart

Updates! before I start though I gotta say, this workout went kinda badly, I beat the logbook but I made a mistake and couldnt get to the gym at the right time, as a result I didnt really have enough carbs in me to do things as well as I could, onto some numbers though:
All in all that went well, it just should have gone better, especially for shoulders

Hey guys , Im sorry for not updating this log in a while, I think I mentioned to you all a few weeks ago that ive got study leave and exams for the next month so im kinda short on time right now, Ive been on a cruise since last wednesday, Life meant I had to walk around 8 miles a day all of last week and the week before, that pretty much just burnt out my CNS so I decided to cruise and will be till next wednesday, On another note ive decided to bump my calories up by 500 for now when im doing very little exercise but the gym, and when im back to my usual cardio ill be upping it by inleast another 500, right now then that puts my cals at ~3500 per day. Just some quick notes on my pre cruise workouts I added another 5kg to my hammer strength press and did one rep less than last time, and I added 5 reps each side to my one arm rows, thats all I can remember now sorry, anyway on another note, does anyone mind If I keep a small meal log in this log while im getting used to the new macros?
