    I thought I would start a new log to track my eating and my lifts with it being January and all.
    Hardly doing any SM stuff at the moment and generally only have time for two proper workouts a week until April when I will have 3 (Yippee!).
    Old log here
    https://www.tmuscle.co.uk/threads/g...nd-powerlifting-log.19302/page-22#post-768247

    Best lifts so far

    Squat 200kg
    Bench 135kg t'n'g
    Deadlift 245kg

    I've only done one gym comp and still yet to do a proper comp (have had a singlet in my wardrobe in wrapping for over 2yrs I think).

    I haven't trained since before Christmas and won't be doing anything this week as my mrs is ill so we are off to a good start...

    Targets

    Squat 240kg
    Bench 150kg
    Deadlift 280kg

    And to be less chubby around the waist and look like I lift.
    And to sort my skinny arms out.

    All meats now from the local butcher and all veg is fresh from market.
    Processed stuff is down to a minimum.

    Food today has been pants.

    Breakfast:

    2 cups milky coffee

    Lunch:

    Pizza express small pizza

    Dinner:

    300g fresh salmon, mashed pot, broccoli and carrot.

    Snacks:

    Got a knockoff nutribullet thing so had a shake earlier with bluberries, cranberries, rasberries, kale, ginger and some ice.

    2 x 16.5g bags of wotsits.


    BW? Got to be just over 90kg
    Waist is 37' today.

    Will do some sort of home workout tomorrow hopefully.

    Cheers mate!

    Thanks mate, typical I can't get there tomorrow!

    Thanks mate, was down to about 86kg in Nov, the weight doesn't bother me but makes my numbers look a bit better if I weigh less :)

    Good to hear mate!


    So ended up doing sweet FA today after being sent to the depths of Harlow.
    I did come back with some socks from the epicentre for deads though. Early finish tomorrow with a bit of luck and off to 1RM for a full body workout & sauna :)

    Food today has been

    Breakfast -
    200g steak mince burger
    Snack -
    Handful of cashews & apple
    Lunch -
    3/5's of a 5 egg tomato, spinach and parmesan cheese (30g) omlette
    Unscheduled -
    2 30g gingerbread man (made some with daughter) and one 22g bag of chocolate animals (no self control and in my defense they were already open).
    Dinner - will be a large chicken breast with ~300g sweet potato and parsnip chips.

    I need to clear some space in my phone for a cal counter but it's not much and staying that way until I shift a bit of timber.
    Going to switch back to black coffee at work from now on too.
    Only supps at moment are zma & 5000iu vit d
    a day. Just ordered some whey and pbutter from Bulkpowders too. Have some out of date creatine I'll start using after tomorrow too.

    Finally got back in the gym after the festive season, be ready for the excuses already!

    Tony told me I had lost loads of weight upon arrival at 1RM - I have, seemingly muscle.

    10mins skip - was hard
    Warm up exc's; cat/camel, lawnmowers, wallslides, spiderman things, bw squats x 3 sets
    Rotator cuff db work

    Squats - sleeves on as usual, wrist wraps, low bar, Texas bar & comp collars

    Bar x 5
    70kg x 5
    100kg x 5

    150kg 5 x 5

    Bench press, Texas bench bar, wrist wraps

    60kg x 5

    100kg 5 x 5

    Deadlift, Texas deadlift bar

    100kg x 5 doh
    140kg x 5 doh

    180kg 3 x 5

    RDL

    100kg 4 x 6

    Db hammer curls

    15kg/side 3 x 12/side

    Stretches

    Sauna!


    Here comes the excuses, I was up for work at 0340 and got woken up at half 1 by my daughter crying (she is ill too now aswell as mrs ffs) so hardly a great nights rest.
    I finished work nice and early as I was spare and everyone else turned up for work so was out the door at 8am.
    I had my burger at 7am and then pre wo porridge at 0750.
    Got to the gym at 9am. As soon as I started skipping it was hard work..
    Squats felt really heavy and the last rep of each set was a grind, a couple of rushed reps on my 3rd set after not getting tight enough left my right ham sore. Rubbed it a bit and rolled it a bit and carried on.
    Had to break outy new Big Ben nose napalm as I was massively flagging and ate a banana to get me through the last two sets..

    Bench was ok, first set went up fine despite feeling a bit odd, breathing wasn't right and feeling rather nauseous by now.
    Last set I used the nose napalm again a pissed it with the weights clinking on the bar at lock out each rep.

    I then 'flossed' my right ham as Kelley Starret calls it using an oly bar in the squat rack, it was horrible but felt an improvement.

    Deads I was weary of damaging my ham so stuck at 180, by the 3rd set I could feel my form had gone to shit and my legs wobbling all over so sacked them off and did some RDL's.

    Stretched out and got in Tonys sauna which was nicely toasty at 110 deg! Didn't stay in it as long as I was still feeling nauseous.
    Weighed myself before and I was 89.1! so lost weight over xmas and emerged steaming ridiculously at 88.5kg!!!

    I then polished off the GU milkshake that I couldn't resist while picking up some bits in Sainsburys :)

    Hopefully the leg is ok next week, if not my bench could always use more work :D
    Will update food later on, so far it's been

    Breakfast - 200g steak mince burger
    Pre wo - 60g oats & ~250ml skim milk
    Intra wo - banana & handful of cashews
    Post wo - 1l GU milkshake

    20160107_135722.jpg Lunch was 3/5's of a 5 egg omlette again with onion, tomato, spinach & parmesan.
    I made a juice thing too with a tangerine, a kiwi, 4 heads of brocolli, a thumb of ginger, handful of blueberries, 6 cranberries, a bit of water, a few ice cubes and a scoop of creatine. Wasn't horrible. Wasn't great either but mildly more enjoyable than water!

    Dinner is going to be about 250g steak mince with garlic, fresh chillis, onion and some basmati rice with a bit of evoo.

    Mondays food was ok, stuck to usual stuff but disgusted myself by bin diving to retreive the remaining two Hershey bars I had chucked.
    They were worth it.
    Yesterday I buckled again and ate 3 bags of crisps and 3 mini kinder bar things, other food was fine though.
