Wed 27th April 2011
Workout weight = 85.9kg (afternoon instead of night)

Squats
1x5x74kg
1x5x87kg
2x5x99kg

OHP
1x5x27kg
1x5x30kg
1x5x34kg
1x5x38kg

Deadlift
1x5x119kg
1x5x136kg
1x5x153kg
1x5x170kg (belt for this set only)

Weighted chins
2x5x7.5kg

Situps
3x7 (no-one holding feet down)

Hips/left ITB noticeably tight during squatting, need to start stretching out on off days again, not been as frequent the last 10 days or so. Deadlifts were lightening quick, quickest top set on madcow yet - finding my form again (keeping the hips high). Situps were easier this week like they should be. Was my girls birthday yesterday and didn't eat too much the 2nd half of the day so need to make up today! (explains the weight)

Back to home workouts this long holiday weekend.

Fri 29th April 2011
Morning weight = 84.7kg

Squat
1x5x75kg
1x5x87.5kg
1x5x100kg
1x5x112.5kg
1x3x127.5kg (belt for this set only)
1x8x100kg

Bench
1x5x47.5kg
1x5x55kg
1x5x62.5kg
1x5x70kg
1x3x79kg (used extra collars to make up weight)
1x8x62.5kg

Barbell row
1x5x40kg
1x5x47.5kg
1x5x52.5kg
1x5x60kg
1x3x67.5kg
1x8x52.5kg

Strict BB curls
3x8x25kg

Tricep extensions
3x8x12.5kg DB

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzQOQmcGNnI[/youtube]

Reason weight is down a wee bit is because I haven't been able to eat as much due to indigestion. The only 2 things that have changed are that I've ran out of brown rice protein so it's 100% pea. And also I've been waking up 30-45m earlier but not eating till my usual time. Hopefully get my apetite back from working at the weekend. The squats felt a bit heavier but watching them back they were real quick. Last bench rep was maybe a bit slow but felt solid. Good day! Feel wiped out.

Last home workout. Bench fail came out of nowhere. This week and last been +1.2-1.5kg above what I should've been doing, but don't have fractional plates here so had to round up. Had a very few stressful days at work and wasn't keeping my weight up.

Fri 6th May 2011
Workout weight = 88kg :o

Squats
1x5x76kg
1x5x89kg
1x5x102kg
1x5x114kg
1x3x130kg (belt for this set only)
1x8x102kg

Bench (repeat of Week 4)
1x5x46kg
1x5x53kg
1x5x61kg
1x5x68kg
1x3x78kg
1x8x61kg

Barbell Row
1x5x40kg
1x5x47kg
1x5x53kg
1x5x60kg
1x3x69kg
1x8x53kg

Weighted dips
3x5 +7.5kg

Strict Barbell Curls
2x8x27.5kg
1x4x27.5kg

Tricep extensions
3x8x12.5kg DB

Main exercises were fast paced and had no problem. Done a warmup set of 5 BW with dips to test waters (hadn't been doing them due to home workouts last 2 weeks), felt fine so decided to continue where I'd left off. Burnt out on curls, going to take same weight for 3x6 next week. Tri extensions still having problems getting upper arms vertical, need to keep stretching shoulders/tri's.

First time at 88kg, ever. Should be hitting 90kg post workout within 2 or 3 weeks if I can keep up the eating.

Nice work, 1kg gains a week is about the most I can also get. 100kg by Christmas?

Just focusing on bulking for the comp in July, have no idea what I'm doing after that!

Wed 11th May 2011
Morning weight = 85.5kg
Workout weight = 87.2kg

Squat
1x5x78kg
1x5x91kg
2x5x104kg

OHP
1x5x28kg
1x5x32kg
1x5x36kg
1x5x40kg

Deadlift
1x5x125kg
1x5x143kg
1x5x161kg
1x5x178kg (belt for this set only)

Weighted chins
5,4 x 11kg

Prone bridge
3x30s

First up, need to watch bodyweight, starting to slip. Gonna pack in the extra food.

Went for a kickabout, was my first time kicking a ball in years and felt it straight away. Got tired quickly during workout so went for a cold bath for 12 mins when I got home. Squatting felt kinda all over the place today but press felt pretty strong. And my deadlifts aren't slowing down, back in the 180s next week. Failed weighted chins by a rep but not arsed, only assistance. Switching situps for bridges as they are suspect for this niggling lower back injury that's still hanging about. Doesn't feel serious at all but I want it gone asap.

Fri 13th May 2011

Bench Press
1x5x47kg
1x5x55kg
1x5x62kg
1x5x70kg
1x3x80kg
1x8x62kg

Weighted dips
1x5x10kg (called quits cause elbow felt a bit sore)


Had a rough weekend. Up late most nights, was a loader at a comp on saturday (back felt better that morning) and drank more than I have in ages (cider). Food went to shit as well, combination of being busy and low motivation because of back.

Madcow 5x5 - Week 7

Mon 16th May 2011
Workout weight = 88.5kg (shwing ;))

Squat
1x5x80kg
1x5x93kg
1x5x107kg
1x5x120kg (think this was a beltless 5RM, will have to check)
1x5x133kg (belt for this set only)

Bench
1x5x48kg
1x5x56kg
1x5x64kg
1x5x72kg
1x5x80kg (5RM)

Barbell row
1x5x42kg
1x5x50kg
1x5x57kg
1x5x64kg
1x5x71kg (technically a 5RM, but i've done 3x5x70 and 1x4x75 before, so unimpressive)

Hypers
2x8 (just bodyweight, wasn't chancing it with the back)

Weighted planks
3x30sx10kg (plate on lower back)

Squat felt really solid until the top set with belt, was all over the place but the weight went up. Can't believe how easy 120kg was without the belt. Really happy with the bench, went up pretty easy for a 5RM.

I have no idea how my weight went up after that weekend.

Wed 18th May 2011
Morning weight = 86.7kg
Workout weight = 88.2kg

Squat
1x5x80kg
1x5x93kg
2x5x107kg

OHP
1x5x29kg
1x5x33kg
1x5x37kg
1x5x41kg

Deadlift
1x5x128kg
1x5x146kg
1x5x164kg
1x5x182kg (belt for this set only)

Chins
2x8

Plank
1x(1m 40s)

Knee was sore for the first half of the day prob due to shitty top squat set on Monday, was fine once I got up and about. Squats felt solid, same with press. The deads at 164kg were prob harder than 182kg with the belt (made quick work of it). Chins I was actually going to failure on the first set and failed on the 9th. Somehow pulled out another set of 8 after it though! Plank was disapointing as that was to failure. Lots of work prior to it though. Heaviest morning weight ever this morning. It's kinda weird, was prob eating a bit more couple of weeks ago and going nowhere. Or maybe I'm eating more now without realising it lol.

Sat 23rd July man, BDFPA comp.

In Glasgow again. Looking for a 500kg total with all this extra BW I'm packing on!

Training is starting to get heavy, 5RMs are already starting, expecting them in all exercises within the next few weeks :)

Bench was okay, as fast as to be expected for that weight. My top triple of rows was really solid.
