24th August 2009.

6PM: Peri-Nutrition (1 Scoop Maximuscle Cyclone added to 700ml water) *Note - I don't often do this as this brand gives me palpitations and tension headaches.

6:15PM: Bent-over BB rows - 6x6 starting at 42kg going up in increments of 5kg. *Note - First time doing these.

Barbell military press - 8 reps x 3 sets at 42kg. *Note - This is a 5kg increase since I started these 2 weeks ago.

BB Bench Press - 6x6 starting at 42kg going up in increments of 5kg. *Note - May need to go heavier for the first 3-4 sets.

BB Hack Squats - 62kg 12 reps x 2 sets. *Note - awkward as hell to do. NEED squat rack.

BB Deadlifts - 62kg for 9 reps, 72kg for 7 reps, 82kg for 6 reps. *Note - Need to work harder on these, might place them first in the next workout.

2mins 30 seconds cycling at the end. *Note - I like to do these as a warm down...

7:14PM: finished workout.

I was so tired… I’m really bothered about the lack of progress with the Military press which is weak as hell… I might start doing some stuff with DB’s for my delts with a focus on speed. The lack of energy is horrible as well. I’m getting good peri-workout meals in… I think it must be from lack of sleep.
