    I've been lazy recently, mostly because of lack of money and seeing the GF but we've split up again for good this time (when does it start getting easy?) which has had my head all over the place so I've got plenty free time for the gym now.

    Lost a bit off my bench press, did 3 reps at 90kg and the third one I nearly dropped on my head (albeit I had done a 3 sets of 10 reps previously at lower weights) deadlift I repped 160kg didn't attempt a single and squat I kept it light at 130 for reps, did some bicep curls then ran a bit on the treadmill. My left calf always goes tight when running no matter how well I think I've stretched, never the less I'll keep at it.

    Gonna go again today and do some back work and run again, put some body fat on since december with being lazy/seeing her, but not really ate much this week lost my appeteite and sleep pattern.

    It will be hard for a while, but will get better, as you fill the space with other things and people.

    Cheers mate, feeling a lot better this week still miss her but coming to realise she lied a lot about little things.

    Anyhoo been back in the gym, over done it on bench so nothing to report there but squatted 140 for reps yesterday, sore today so rested, deadlifted 170 for 1 but could have easily gone heavier just not rushing things at the moment with being lazy for a while doing more bicep and chest work than before too.

    200kg dead lift is very good.

    Cheers man, I could have probably pushed for 205 possibly 210 but seeing as I hitched this lift and hitching can lead to injury if over done I left it there and will work on getting more up.

    Yes mate that's me.

    I know I'm going bald

    Also, did some squats the other day and repped 130 for 5 then decided to do some 1 rep maxs, did 140 for one easily, tried 150 but had to drop the bar as its just not going up at the minute

    Trying my hardest to keep going just now been going through phases.

    Managing 170 dead for 1 can't get past it and 120 squat for 1 also. That's a struggle, feel like I'm leaning forward when at that weight 100 feels ok though.

    Yeah I get like that sometimes too, seem to be putting weight on though no matter what I eat so now on my days off work I'm doing cardio am and weights pm see if that helps.

    How are you doing you DL and squat? Going heavy all the time or working a % of your 1 rep max with reps, I.E 70% so 120 for 8 130 for 6 140 for 5 then drop it to maybe 100-110 and do as many reps as possible (AMRAP) I'll write a brief copy here of a program that was written for me that helped me acheive my 120 bench

    I work my way up in the weights, always start low and with deadlift I get up to 140 with 8 reps. I've been pretty lazy with my workouts again recently though and not even benching as much as I was even 2 years ago. Hey ho. Manage 8 with 80-85 and 1 with 100. Kind of annoying, my mates I workout with are both benching 140-145 and one of them weighs the same as me, circa 85kg
