___Update: #3 Date: 31/5

Hey all

so i found out i got the valeria thing wrong. it was deadlifts instead and i understand why because its so much easier to squat so i decided to start throwing Deadlifts into my program too…

Training________

Warm up:

A1. 3 minutes C2 Rower // Distance: 943 Metres
A2. Max Pushups // 45

Training:

B1. ME deadlifts - actually hit 3 plates on my first try :slight_smile: liking were this is going !
60 x 5, 80 x 5, 100 x 5, 120 x 5, 140 x 3 - PR +10 kg / +2 reps

C1. 1-leg press - 160x10, 170x10, 180x10
C2. Uneven weight reverse lounges - 5kg X 12 EL for 3 sets

D1. Leg Curls - 85 x 12, 90 x 12, 95 x 12

E1. Abs 4 exercises done with no pause

  1. Megaset 100+ reps

  3. side bridge 1+ min.
  4. other side bridge 1+ min.

_____Workout thoughts

Felt light headed after the deadlifts. dont know why. but i also felt that way when i startet squatting. so i chose the machines today and to combine the 1 leg press with the uneven weight so i still got that ballance experience from the unilateral exercises.

_____Workout thoughts

Nice to hit a PR in the Benchpress today have not been making progress in the flat bench last 2 times i tried.

also i have begun ramping my sets a lot so i dont just lift the same weight for 3-4 the same ammount of reps… looking forward to seeing how that effects the progress.

Btw i dont know if i have done a better lift back when i wasnt keeping a log(been keeping one for myself for couple of months now) so all lifts in this log will be consideres a PR if they are the highest in the log

Soccer match yesterday

we won 3-1 played 45 min. pretty good even though the pitch was shit

we are now second in the row and crusing against silver and advancement !

have a company party tonight so i am going to take a run today instead of training and push my weight training till tomorrow… run update coming.

I was tired today … really really tired… had no energy and no strenght… i dont understand it i useally would kill to kick ass in the gym after 4 day break… but not today… maybe it was because it was late or maybe it was cause i did ekstra warmup.

But i had no strenght at all. i have also begun to cut my rest periods so they are down to 40 sec. for assistance exercises. but im waiting for ME Legs wednesday to see if its really that bad…

hope my strenght comes back !

_____Workout thoughts

YAY !!! i killed the Deadlift PR today !! dominated that shit ! it fucking killed to hit a PR after my miserable bench day monday witch really had me worried…

Awesome !! hadnt seen it coming after soccer practice yesterday too !! its impressive how the body can adapt to these different loads in such a short period of time. this has been my first couple of months training seriously but ive developed more in the last month than in the 9 before when i was training 2 weeks on 2 weeks off !! it all started when i began keeping a log for myself and i can only encourage people to do it. mine have these small pieces of papers i have to tear off so i can see how many days its been since ive trained so its always a let down if theres more than 7 then you know youve been lazy !

The Farmer walks were nice even though i failed on the shoulder press. more about these in a later post

The pic: i build myself a little deadlift platform from 2 mats so i didnt have to hold the bar all the way down !

So i joined an extra soccer training today so training have been moved until tomorow !

Ahhh soccer practice 5 days in a row and i go on holidays for 2 weeks now …

will update when i come back !

___Update: #8 Date: 31/5

So a lot of shit is going down here the next few weeks. i am moving away from my parents house to the other end of the country. and i am starting a new handball team and my education changes period from internship to school again for the last time. so the next few weeks are going to be Crazy for me ! working the last 2 weeks of internship while moving and traveling back and forth !

I am thinking of using this enormous change of pace to shed some pounds before the season starts. and i got 5 weeks Alwins cosgroves Warp speed fat loss(4 week program) and i have a kitchen without anything in it ! and a whole new world to explore.

_____Workout thoughts

i am really feeling the idea of starting WSFL because i can for 4 weeks cook and do everything myself and i think it will help me immensly to get onto the new team if i was really good shape and a good weight.

but i am a litte reluctant cause i dont make my own breakfast or dinner at work.

and i have a garmin watch to make all the intervals a breeze !!!

Hey ALL

So im starting WSFL today

i have done all the shopping

  • i take weekly pics so i can see if anything happends…

WARP SPEED FAT LOSS - DAY #4 Date: 7/7____
Diet___

Starting weight: 98,7

Todays weight: 94,0

Difference: 4,7 Kg <- 94 yeah !

__General thoughts for the day

So i made today my rest day even though i might try to catch up because i dont think i will get time to exercise the day i am moving.

The decision was based on that i had to work 10 hours today carrying furniture shit up and down stairs. that was definnently hard!

Diet wise today was actually a little sloppy as normally we get to have a buffet(and i can always make my diet from this) but today we could choose beetween brown bread sandwiches or junk… so i took the sandwitches witch was the healthiest choice of the two… allthough i should have taken a protein bar with me.

I am still confident that the diet is working fully these minor changse will just be made up for the 45 g carbs i can have tomorow - that i now will drop.

uploading weight curve tomorow !

Heres the weight curve ! looking good !
WARP SPEED FAT LOSS - DAY #5 Date: 8/7____

_____Workout thoughts

Playstation while working out is the wildest combo !
