Deadlifts were brutal today, particularly on my grip. I can definitely see why some people recommend only doing one set of those. I might have to drop the weight for them, but squats seem to be coming along nicely on 82.5.
I got a haircut today! When I have some time tomorrow, I'll show you.
Squats - 82.5kg - 2x8 reps
Bench press - 50kg - 3x8 reps
Bent over rows - 45kg - 5 reps / 40kg - 8+8 reps
- I did three sets of rows with 45kg, but a chap in the gym came and told me I was doing them wrong so I redid them with better form -
Military press - 35kg - 10+8+6 reps
Biceps curls - 30kg - 10 reps / 25kg - 12 reps
Dips - 2x12 reps
Hammer curls - 2x10kg - 4x12 reps
Lateral raises - 2x7.5kg - 10+9 reps
My weight for the squats is back up to pre-cut levels thanks to my peri-workout carbs. Deadlifts not quite there yet - it seems 90kg is too heavy for me at this stage. It's mainly a grip/back strength thing, since my legs are more than capable of taking on the weight.
Part of the reason I found these difficult was that I did a few warm-up sets beforehand with lighter weights. I never normally do these, but I thought they might help me with the heavier weights. In fact, they just ended up tiring me out. What do you all think about warm-up sets? The advice I've always followed is that you should start with the heaviest weight you can lift and then drop the weight when you can't lift it any more, repeating until you exhaust your muscles completely. I'm not really doing that either though at the moment - I'm mostly just lifting the same weight.
I'm wondering if I should get a weight belt. But I'm not sure if the weights I'm using are heavy enough.
I weighed myself and came out at 73kg, which is the lightest I've been for a while and represents a loss of 1kg on last week. No changes to the diet.
I went home to visit my girlfriend and my family and ended up majorly cheating on my diet. It was nice though - for the first time ever, I started getting people noticing that I'd been going to the gym - I suppose when you're bulking and wearing winter clothes you're indistinguishable from someone who's just a bit fat, but when you're getting cut up and wearing a T-shirt things really start to show. I got sun burned on my arms, which isn't nice, but I can put up with it.
New PB on the squat! I weighed myself and came out as 73.0kg - the same as on Saturday. Looks as though I've burned of the extra I put on over the week-end and can start to lose some weight for the rest of the week.
Weight this week is 72.4kg, which is a loss of 0.6kg on last week. Given my indiscretions on Sunday, this seems pretty good, and I'm not losing too much strength so I'd say things are going well. I was able to see the outline of my abs without tensing this morning.
I noticed a small pain in my spine while doing squats today. I took a bit of time out and really concentrated on keeping my back in proper alignment for the last set, but it worried me slightly. Perhaps I should get a belt.
