20mins yoga
I can't find a class that I can afford, is within walking distance and that's at a time I can make so youtube is the best I can do

27th March

Jump 5x1
DB Lunge with knee lift: 16kg x10 20kg 2x10
Side bend: 22kg 4x10
Romanian deadlifts: 40kg x3
deadlift: 40kg x3

I searched the whole gym (even found a bit I didn't know existed) but didn't find anything to jump onto that isn't behind a locked door. I might need to replace jumps since it feels a bit pointless without a target. I think I've got my balance good enough on lunges to try a bar again so I can get decent weight on it. I tried GHR but the machine confused me but I've unconfused myself now. Not properly ill now but still a bit awkward to breath

My back felt better, the deadlifts were uncomfortable but not the sort of pain I was having. If tomorrow I can still bend without pain then I'm going to cautiously start some rehab


there are things to jump onto up the stairs in the places where they have classes, kettlebells and a sprint track

Me I just stack plates on top of each other :)

Unless I'm think of the wrong stairs then I think I dismissed them for not being high enough to be challenging. But thinking about it now it's probably the easiest thing to stack on top of. I think I just got annoyed at their only being boxes in the performance gym so I stopped really trying to think of a solution :lol:

also you can always jump holding onto a heavy plate. That makes things a bit harder even when it is quite low. I also feel safer doing this than always going up high.

They have weight bag things up there so using them could be a good plan

28th March

20mins Yoga x2
Deadlift: 20kg 3x25

Back felt odd after the first two sets of deadlifts- somewhere between pumped and stiff which I think it what I meant to be going for so good sign. I realised my back probably feels better because I’ve not squatted heavy for a bit. I don’t want to stop squatting heavy but it makes more sense to get myself not broken so leg presses for a few weeks.

29th March

Cycling
Negative Chin ups 1x8
Chin ups: 6x1 (first time doing one!)
Pull Down: 32kg x12 39kg 1x12 1x8 32kg x12
Lat Raise: 7kg 4x8
Deadlift: 22.5kg 2x20 25kg x20
Shrug: 20kg 3x15
Plate pinch: 20kg 3x20s each hand

Probably should have done shrugs before deadlifts because after my back was putting me off too much.

1st April

Leg Press: 50kg x5 70kg x5 80kg x5 90kg x5 100kg x5 120kg x5 130kgx5
Lunge: 20kg x6 40kg x6 55kg 3x6
Chin ups x2
Deadlifts: 22.5kg x25 25kg x25 27.5kg x25

Leg curl machine was awfully popular today so gave up trying to get near it and went to see if I could do more chins when I hadn't done negatives first. Deadlifts are still making my back feel really weird but not sore

I've started tracking my calories every day to see if I'm not gaining weight because I'm eating less than I think or because I need more calories than I think because something is wrong

I'm buying Monohydrate Creatine. Want in? (we'd split costs down the middle I'd be getting 1kg for myself).

mostly i'm thinking to save on postage if there is any

edited to add: nevermind I did the sums and it wouldn't save enough money to be worth the hassle

4th April
20mins yoga then foam roller

5th April
20mins yoga then foam roller

I had to change injection brand and this one is different so I can barely walk the next day if I use my legs much after getting it. So no gym. Unless they let me inject myself sometime soon it’s going to turn into a right pain

6th April

Weight: 66.6kg

Jump: 5x +5kg 5x +10kg 5x +15kg 5x + 20kg
Lunge with knee lift: 20kg x10 40kg x10 50kg x10 55kg 2x10
GHR: 3x8
Deadlifts: 30kg x15 32.5kg 2x15

I tried Lordmuppet’s suggestion for jumps. It’s good cardio now if I do it without rests but not so much for my legs really having to work.

Forearms were burning like hell on deadlifts so there’s was no way I was managing 75 of them.

I can’t find anything wrong with my eating so I decided to go with eating 3000 calories every day instead of just listening to My Plate. I’d have expected to at least be a little heavier after 4 days. There's no way 3000 can be maintenance :?

7th April

20mins jog
Deadlift: 30kg x25 32.5kg x25 35kg x25
20mins yoga

8th April

Weight: 67.1 kg

Chins then some assisted, can't read my writing for how many
Pull Down:18kg x12 32kg 2x12, 8
Lat raise: 8kg 4x8
Shrug: 20kg x10 40kg x10 52kg 3x10
Plate pinch: can't read my writing again but 15kg for 20s didn't happen
Dips 2x10

let myself be rushed on pull downs by a guy who seemed to be more swinging off the handle than pulling it so barely rested so not counting it as a real fail
Will try deadlifts later if my hands are less tired

8th April (Later on)
Deadlift: 32.5kg x25 35kg x 25
Romanian deadlift 30kg x15

A med student friend says it must be my spinal erectors that are injured and it was probably because they started off far weaker than the rest of me. Knowing that is useful for working out what to do. I’m going to switch rows to cable, regardless of whether I am meant to switch exercise, and add in back extensions. Hopefully cable rows shouldn’t be a problem but extensions will target more specifically. I’ll do low reps to strength it before I start to deadlift or squat again. I’m thinking for 2 weeks, doing it every other session before doing squats again. I’ll carry it on until I fail at squats then it’ll be switched with deadlifts.

10th April

Leg Press: 40kg x10 90kg x5 110kg x5 130kg x5 140kg x5
Single leg squat: 20kg x8 30kg 3x8 (each leg)
Leg Curl: 32kg x8 45kg x8 66kg 3x8

I figure I shouldn't add more weight to lunges to replaced with single leg squats since that should keep the weight on my back lighter plus means more of squatting.

11th April


Deaflift: 35 x 15 37.5 x 15
Romanian Deadlift: 35x12

Hands were totally gone, same again today so think I need to deadlift less often since it adds up to quite a long time holding the bar.

12th April

Incline bench: 20kg x10 30kg x6 35kg x4 40kg x4 42kg x4
Decline DB bench: 14kg DBs x10 18kg DBs x11, 8
Cable row: 7.5kg x10 22.5kg x 10 37.5kg x8 45kg 3x8
Shrug: 20kg x10 40kg x10 55kg 3x10

Feel awfully energetic today, even wanted to do cardio but couldn't since I've done so much walking which would make eating enough calories too hard

14th April

20mins yoga

15th April

Hop +5kg 5x1 each leg
Single leg squat 20kg x10 30kg 2x10 each leg
GHR +5kg 3x8
Side bend: 16kg 2x10 24kg 4x10
Deadlift: 37.5kg x15 40kg x15

Diet (3kg max doesn't seem like it's really cutting) is meant to start sometime nowish but my next workout is the one I intend to be re-feed so I'll start after that, plus I have that food needs finished first. At my current level of activity my maintenance is a little under 2500 (which is much more than myplate thinks so that'll be why I haven't been gaining much weight) so I'll eat that first 10days plus extra cardio then re-work it out for 1lb a week.

17th April

Shurg: 20kg x15 40kg x10 57kg 2x10, 7
Assisted Pull Ups: 41kg 3x4
Pull Downs: 32kg 3x12
Lat Raise: 9kg 8, 3x7, 6 (switch to DB press)

My hands and forearms are still so tired. I couldn't do chins because of it and they were properly burning by the end. Though my forearms are looking bigger. It's as if I've been doing major forearm workouts in my sleep

20th April

Leg Press: 90kg x5 110kg x5 130kg x5 140kg x5 150kg x5
Single leg squat: 20kg x 6 30kg x6 32.5kg 3x6 (each leg)
Leg curl: 38kg x8 52kg x8 73kg fxlots (switch to 3x10 GHR)
Back extension: 11kg x15 18kg 3x15
Cycling: L4 1min/30s intervals x4

Just couldn't get leg curls all the way, 7kg increments are a pain in the arse. Switched to back extensions since I think I can cope with more directly targeting my back now and my forearms/hands could do with it.

Plan is to work the cycling intervals up to 10
