Mon 4th April 2012
Bodyweight = 81.7kg - read below

Squat (no belt)
1x5x100kg
1x5x130kg

Front Squat (no belt)
1x2x100kg
1x5x110kg (new 5RM)

Pendlay rows
1x5x75kg
1x5x82.5kg

Push Press
1x6x62.5kg

Strict press
1x5x47.5kg
1x3x52.5kg
1x3x57.5kg

Not fucking shabby at all. My form on push press was so fucked up and just felt weak. Moved my grip in for strict press and it felt much much better.

So was my last weekend working for B&Q. Friday night went to a gig, had way too much cider, but managable hangover on Saturday. Got under 4 hours sleep though and was working 7-4. Was back out drinking again by 8pm, club till 4am. Was stupidly drunk and missed the last bus home. Walked about till first train at 8.20am, was delayed and didn't go all the way back home so just text someone from work and said I wasn't going in for my last day. Had a bean burger sandwich at my friends house, passed out on the floor. Got home at 4pm. Took about and hour and a half to eat a bowl of cereal and was in bed for 8.30pm. Hence stupidly light bodyweight. Hoping when I fill my stomach up with food and body with water it'll replenish very quickly. But all in all was a fucking disaster. Spent too much money, burnt some bridges, pissed off some people, fucked up my eating, spent a stupid amount of money. Little bit less alcohol next time.

Tue 5th June 2012

Cambered bar squats (no belt)
1x5x100kg
1x5x120kg

18" deadlifts
1x3x200kg
1x3x220kg

Farmers walks
10m, 95kg (each hand), 10.68s
10m, 115kg (each hand), 14.59s

Then some gunz with the football bar.



2nd heavy day in a row, feeling pretty fucked. Done some foam rolling/stretching when home, hot bath, now eating shitloads. Proud of farmers, pretty sure towards end of last year at OSG manchester I managed to pick 115kg farmers up but couldn't walk with them.

nice to nail 120 stone at first go man!

Training is looking good, varied, and a lot of fun :)

Is the work itself hard?

Cheers! Been enjoying training, lots of heavy lifting and interesting lifts. Lots of overhead work which has always been a weak point of mine, so hopefully see some progress there! Work - some days are more demanding than others, just depends how much heavy shit there is to lift. But overall keeping on my feet and moving about seems to be keeping my flexibility up, it's improved and I've barely been stretching + heavy lifting. Love the job, like working in a toy factory :lol:

Video of Wednesday's pressing. Sets 1/2/5 of press and top set of bench.

Renaming my log from Chewy's Powerlifting Log to Chewy's Strength Log, more appropriate.

Yeah been trying out lots of new stuff. Anything that involves picking things off the floor i'm decent at, anything that involves pressing = shit at. Just need to keep working away.

Food's been more or less consistent with the new routine. Around 4000kcal and 200g protein. Floating around 82-84kg for too long. Back when I done fuck all during the week I'd be gaining weight with this sort of consistent calorie intake. Time to up the portions to keep up with increased workload!

Quick progress pic after my nap last night

EDIT: missed some stuff, it's actually about 4200kcal, 210g protein

Looking good! Can you give me an idea what you eat in a regular week?
