Today we had lovely weather here in Austria, so I decided to see what my bakc had to say about some running (or rather jogging). So I put on my running shoes for the first time in 6 month or something and took a tour throught the winefields. Felt very good, bakc didn't say nothing so hopefully I will start doing some running once or twice a week from now on.

Went to the gym last night. I'm a bit confused these day, I have only made up an aproximate routine so I wasn't quite sure what to do when I arrived at the gym. Anyway I decided to do upper body which for me these days means chins and dips. Dips went pretty well, chins I don't know I never seem to get better at these. I think I will try more weight and lower reps for a while, maybe even going down to doing lots of singles.

DIps:
0 kg: 1x5, 1x16, 2x5
Chins, close grip:
3x3
Chins:
2x3
Then some wrist work and stuff.

Went to the gym today. I've think I've decided on what routine to use for the nearest couple of week. I'll go with a full-body routine two timeas a week. The routine would be like the one I did today, see below. I'm also thinking of maybe vary the reps so that one time a week it will be higher (8) and one lower (5). Pistol squats felt pretty good, but I had to do them assisted. Last time I actaully managed a couple (two is a couple right :) ) of unassisted reps, but today it seemed inpossible :?. Maybe my legs was tired from playing baksetball yesterday. Anyway, the squats felt rellay good for the quads, a bit more thant std squats I think.

One legged squats:
a: 3x6
Sissy squats:
0 kg: 2x8
Lying leg curl:
45 kg: 3x8
Pull ups:
0 kg: 3x5
Dips:
0 kg: 3x8

Did some swimming ysesterday, and it went pretty good, for my standards. I'm actually getting better for every time I go swimming, which is very lucky since i suck at swimming. My technique is so bad I imagine that me swimming looks something like a dying moby dick in speedos :D .

Visited the gym yesterday for my ususal dips-chins-no squats-no deadlifts routine. Dips went pretty well :). Chins feels like I only get weaker and weaker. If it weren't for my back I'd lay of them for a while and concentrate on barbell rows instead. I think my best progression on chins have been when I did much barbell rows. I also wonder if it would be worth doing them with a smaller ROM for a while (maybe not tough the collar bone, instead just get the chin above the bar).

Dips:
0 kg: 1x5, 10 kg: 1x8, 15 kg: 1x6, 20 kg: 1x6, 25 kg: 1x3
Chins:
0 kg: 1x5, 5 kg: 2x3, 1x2
One legged legpress:
some weight, don't remember and stopped after two sets because it din't feel perfect in the back
Lying leg curls:
45 kg : 1x8, 50 kg: 1x8
Wrist work:
plate curls, reverese plate curls, levering.

Oh, I just remembered that kadett8 has promised to lened me his CoC grippers (#1 and #2) tonight. Super grip, here I come :D .

Just noticed it's exactly one month since I updated my log, so it's about time. Sadly I havenot done any training in the last month, for different reasons, mainly visitors and (mild) illness. Anyway, this friday it was time again :D. It was also the grand premier of the "Derek Zoolander's vegan gym" located in kadett8's garage. Everybody was so happy because of the premier so we almost forgot to train, but I managed to get a couple of sets in, with focus on quads for no specific reason.

Pistol squats(assistsed):
0 kg: 4x5
Sissy squats:
0 kg: 4x5
Disp:
0 kg:
1x14, 2x8 (approximately)
Dumbell row:
20 kg: 3x10

Well, so far there is a bench with a rack and dips-handles, a barbell, some dumbbells and ~100 kg of weights. All located in the garage, but I hear it will be moved to the cellar instead. There are also plans of building a sauna in connection to the gym :).

hi,

we also plan to get some pull-up possibility: a normal bar the press in between a doorframe or a more sophisticated version to screw into the wall.
i moved the 'gym' into the cellar today, because in the garage it was too dirty.
i also thought about moving it to the terace when the weather is good :-)

in the moment following people plan to work-out there:
my brother, my girlfriend, bronco, me (all vegan), my cousin (vegetarian)
and several guests who train not reguralrly, but only for trying.
:-)

i will also start a trainingslog with my new programm, which is not fixed yet, or i will continue the HST log if i repeat it



:-)

0 kg: 3x6
GH-raise(assisted)

Did some training again yesterday. Tried some quite heavy benches for the first time since i hurt my back and it felt really good. The back felt perfect and it seemed I hadn't lost too much strength either. So now I'm thinking of trying to go over 100kg for the VF week, not sure though but it would be sweet :D.
The training was something like this:
bench:
80 kg: 2x5
Chins:
0 kg: 3x5 or so
Dumbbell rows:
30 kg: 3x8
Dips:
0 kg: 1x5, 10 kg: 1x5
Lateral raise:
5 kg : 3x8 (or so)

Decided to go running yesterday. When it comes to running, living in the city sucks. I want just get out and run in the nature, but nooo, instead I have to spend 15 min on the subway just to get to stinking park :). Well, actually the Schönbrunner Schlosspark is kind of nice, and has a nice uphill part.
So i did something like 20 min warm up running and then 10 upphill sprint intervals. That was kind of hard, but on the positive side, last time i only managed five before I felt like I was gonna get a heart attack, so at least I'm improving :lol: .
