7- 12
8- 12
9- 12
10- 12  and ended with a 30 second static hold with the dumbbells held out midrange

Front raises

I did one set of these then quit.  I'm not going to do these anymore cause I think they fucking up something with my right bicep.  Like after a set of these if I try to hit a front double biceps pose the inner head of my right bicep won't contract properly.  Angry  I've noticed this pretty much every time I do this exercise.   I don't know what it is but I don't wanto risk anything.

I think it could be related to a shoulder injury I got last year playing footy when I landed really heavily on my right shoulder.   Undecided


Just finished off the day with some Front Squats

First 2 sets to 20 reps
Last 3 to 15

 Was pretty McFucked after  Huh


Right shoulder is sore  Sad  Cry  It'll come good by tomorrow or the next I reckon. Usually does

Today did abs and then some cardio  Shocked Shocked Shocked  A rarity indeed.

Abs

Just did a few sets of crunches, 50 reps each.

And also a few sets of hanging leg raises 15 reps each.

First time I've done any ab work in many many months. 


Cardio

Skipping

I prefer skipping over jogging because I always feel really flat after running  Sad

Just did 3 sets of 500 jumps.  Smiley

Epic chocolate and chips binge on the weekend.   Sad Angry  Had a uni assignment to do and was hammering down bars of chocolate caus I was craving some sugar.  Managed to get quite a bit of protein in over the weekend also.  The weekend acted as a rebuild for some of the muscle I'd lost from cardio before breakfast.  I'm never doing cardio before breakfast ever again.  Doesn't work for me.

Loving these.


Biceps

1- 5
2- 5
3- 5

Not a bad workout.

The Mr Getbig

Once it got to the day of my photos i started pigging out on anything and everything.  Chocolate and meat pies were good.  I didn't drop water at all.  I did try a haf-assed carb load caus during the last week of my diet carbs were pretty low, it worked alright.  I took my photos late at night between like 12 and 3am.  Pretty much just took them when I wanted, and my family were asleep then so they didn't get in the way.

Overall, I was pretty happy with my pics.  Next year planning on being MUCH bigger and better.  Cool  I might actually start going to a gym... maybe  Cheesy

Thanks mate, can you explain the "Kitchentop lat shrugs" and "Static bicep curls".   Smiley

Thanks mate, can you explain the "Kitchentop lat shrugs" and "Static bicep curls".   Smiley
No problem-
Lat Shrugs: Position yourself so that your elbows are resting on the kitchentop. Now fold up yer legs to allow your body to hang freely (like you would do your dips). Now to allow for the negative portion of the exercise, release some pressure off the elbows to let the shoulders move up. Shrug back up by pushing the elbows, moving the shoulders through the greatest ROM possible.

I tried to be as clear as possible but I'm horrible with exercise explanations so bear with my limited capacity here Grin

Static bicep Curl: I just randomly came up with the name like with some of the other exercises so i may not have named it appropriattely. This is just an isometric hold that can be done for the low-top range of the barbell curl movement. For example, you are able to find a position where you're able to curl-up at the mid-range of the bicep curl (typically this is done in a power rack; you curl the bar up against the pins that are adjusted for the desired part of the ROM). Curl up as hard as possible against it for a length of 4-6 sec. and repeat several times (6-10 reps i guess..) This would be one set.

This exercise is probably too much of a hassle considering you do have a barbell and weights. I must admit I haven't really used this one, but it could be useful when you have no access to db's or barbells.

I would also like to mention the Drag Curl, in case you have limited weights to use. It makes the barbell curl really hard and isolates the biceps well. I'll post up the decription later if u want.

Thanks for the explanations.  Smiley  I'll give the lat shrugs a go on my next back day.

I've done drag curls before also, the intense contraction in the biceps is awesome.
