I've never had one of these before but I figure it's about time I started making a record of what I do and what progress I make. Any comments welcome.

Aims: to get stronger and stay at least vaguely fit.

Tuesday 15th May.

DL: 90kg x 6, 140kg x 5, 160kg x 5, 160kg x 5 - 3mins rest between each set.
Widegrip chins own BW: 3 x 8 - 2mins rest between each set.
BB rows: 55kg x 3 x 8 - 2mins rest between each set.
BB curls: 35kg x 3 x 8 - 2mins rest between each set.

Found the DLs a little hard going and intense. In fact I spent the rest of my workout pretty much catching my breath.

I wonder how I put a picture next to my journal?

Good luck neil, I think 3 working sets of 5 reps is the best way on deadlifts, your immidiate goal should be a nice 400lb deadlift (182.5kg) and a 100kg benchpress , as for squat, justkeep goin !! 150 is a good squat , just keep training hard

Wow that was a quick response - I will still editing my post while it happened Happy

Yeah I think my weakness is in my bench but I'm working on it. I've always had reasonably large legs compared to my upper body, but that is slowly changing.

I'm charging up the camera so I can get a video on here soon! Eek

Good stuff mate I will get an icon up for you when you get a video or photo up.

You should be able to nail 400lb deadlift easy with 160 for 5s.

OK, thanks. As I say I hope to get a video up soon. Perhaps I'll get a few photos taken too Happy

Wednesday 16th May.

Went for a gentle 6km jog. 34mins. Back a little tender from yesterday's deadlifting, so I'm happy enough with that.

I'm doing a 10km race with a mate on the 27th May, so I've got to keep putting the miles in or I'll not make it on the day! My PB for a 10km is 54mins 30secs.

I'd have liked to get around the 50-52min mark but it's twice round a hilly cross-country 5km course and I am used to running on flatish roads. I've not really been running for long but I do like it. Got myself one of those Garmin forerunner 305's so I can pace myself and all that. Hoping by the end of the year to be doing sub 50min 10kms.

The run is in a small commune called Leoville which is near Jonzac in the Charente-Maritime (SW France). I'm actually English but I live in France.

Do you run at all? Come on post your times! Happy

Thursday 17th May

BP: 51 x 6, 81 x 5, 85 x 3, 85 x 3 (see video below), 85 x 2 - 3mins rest between sets.
Dips: BW + 8kg x 3sets x 8reps (see video below) - 2 mins rest between sets.
DB shoulder press: 19.5kg x 3 x 8 - 2mins rest between sets.
Cable push downs: 25kg x 3 x 8 - 2mins rest between sets.

Rubbish. I did 85kg BP on 5x5 before but for about the last 8 weeks up until today I'd switched to DB inclined press. What a mistake, never again! My BB press is now really crap as opposed to just crap. Anyways, the only way to go is up eh! I'll try to put a better performance in for squats on Saturday for another video Happy



I'm using Ulead Videostudio 8. I tried a few effects (like adding text and stuff) but it didn't work out. What software do other people use?

Hilly cross-country course sounds nice Grin Far better than running in the city! Good luck for the 27th then. Happy

I used to run regularly - 5 times a week with hill training and long runs up the malvern hills/lickey hills. But now I rarely run at all, just a time and recovery thing really. I can't fit running in as well as weights and Muay Thai. Also, I guess it's partly to do with living right in the centre of manchester - it's totally uninspirational for running. As soon as I get back to the country i'll probably be out every day again.

I did a couple of 10 k's - best time was at boddington 54:00 but I have never been a speed machine. I'd rather just pootle along for a couple of hours looking at the scenery than trying to run faster Happy

Cheers. Yeah I would like to run a quicker 10km than I currently do and I do want to be sub 50mins by the end of the year. It's achievable I think but beyond that I can't see me getting much quicker.

Actually I'm now off out for a run.

Thanks Rob for the little picture thing near my journal. I look a bit knackered in that which is pretty representative I reckon! Happy

Put in an 8km run at 44:30... so not too quick. Still feeling a little lower back tenderness from Tuesday's deads. Ah well. That's the last run I'll do now until the race on Sunday 27th because I really feel like I need to rest up. Not on the weights though, full steam ahead on that front Happy

Saturday 19th May

Squats: 91kg x 6, 131kg x 5, 131kg x 5, 131kg x 5 (see video) - 3mins rest
Leg curl: 47kg x 8 x 3 - 2mins rest
Calf raises: 80kg x 8 x 3 - 2mins rest
Leg raises: 10 x 3 - supersetted with calf raises.



This is the first time I've EVER seen myself squat cos we haven't got a mirror in our barn. Looks to me as though I am high and a little unbalanced. Doing these videos is really helping me focus on what I am doing. Also it's a good starting point from which I hope to improve and look back and chuckle at!

Any comments on how I might improve my technique would be appreciated.
