Ok well on the 26th of January i decided that it was time to get serious. I adopted a very simplistic routine consisting of the big basics. Bench squat deadlift chins and dips. The previous 6 months training had become abysmal due to serious illness and then lack of motivation. i decided I am never gonna have the opportunity to make these kind of gains again in my life so i embarked on a very simple routine where every week or 2 workouts I would increase the weight ever so slightly until i far surpassed what i was previously doing.

It entailed bench and deadlifting 3 times a week and squat about 2 though at the start i failed to take it seriously.

I started off at the following poundages, and the second group are what i guess was my max.

bench press 110kg 3x5
deadlift 145kg 3x6
squat 55kg 3x5
weighted dips 40kg 4x5
chins bw generally 5x5

bench press 116kgx5
deadlift 165kgx5
squat 65kgx5
weighted dips 55kgx5
chins 25kgx5

After some serious and fun training over the past 10weeks i have decided to start again in a similar routine though higher than i previously began at. The intention her is to surpass the weights i am at now in the bext 10 weeks. In the bench press and deadlift i have kinda plateaued the squat is going great. here is what i am at now and my predicted max's in kg's and also lbs for ya yanks.

exercise         work sets        in lbs                        predicted max

bench press    126.5kg 3x5    278.3lbs                     150kg 330lbs
deadlift          200kg 1x6       440lbs                        235kg 517lbs
squat            115kgx5          253lbs                        136kg 297lbs
chins             bw+25kgx5      55lbs+215-220lbsbw     144kg 317lb
dips               70kgx5           154lbs+215-220lbs bw   197kg 434lbs
(also never maxed on dips)
(not maxed out and i literally go ass to grass very low)

so ai am starting again and am going to disrregard the old training thread on this board and delete it and continue on this one. I intend to make some serious gains on this new routine which even contains calves, abs and biceps.

motivation today? I was doin calves and gym owner said "I never knew tweety pie worked out"

Will keep ya'll posted.

John,

Bit of unsolicited advice:
I reckon the best way to format your training thread is the following....

Exercise 1
weight x reps, weight x reps, weight x reps
Exercise 2
weight x reps, weight x reps, weight x reps

for example:
Barbell squats
135 lb x 10, 225 lb x 5, 275 lb x 3

...this keeps the posts compact and avoids huge amounts of scrolling, but allows people to see the patterns of progression by having several posts onscreen together. Hence I believe minimising the number of lines in the post is more effective than bunching the data on the left side margin.

But it's your thread, just some constructive criticism. Please feel free to delete and/or ignore this post as you see fit.


The Luke
PS-great progress thus far, tough luck about the calves. I'll pm you when I do up that calf ratio post.

I think u should seriously consider focusing on the Squat more than the deadlift. Your deads will go up with your Squats, damn it you really need to bring up your Squats bro!! If you're really serious about bringin your lifts up, and not just obsessin with deads, I think you should consider it. Just friendly suggestions..

I have to agree with haidar. Besides there is quite a bit of overlap between deads and squats. I find myself doing each once a week is enough for me.

Just a wee pic to show before and after for my calves. I will use this as a comparison pic in the next few months. I have now trained calves a total of twice and here they are cold and flexed. flame away.

Hey bro, thanks for the PM, i gave u reply aswell. What are you doing for calves mate. Theres lots of different ideas about training them, tho recurring idea i hear is about 10 of about 15 (choose couple exercises each workout) each workout, and about 3 times a week, not sure if thats true,but im gonna see.

I love the pics of that gym bro, do alot of folk use it? Looks old school, kinda gym wer it would heat up quickly and it wud just b guys there that love weights and wanna get big,awesome!!

I train at public sport centre gym, theres been good money spent on it, and has squat bar,bench couple flat benches (one that can do incline etc), lots dumbells etc and plenty machines and cardio equipment, but it is meant for fitness enthusiasts (which i am), not as much for guys wanting to get huge (which i also am).

Tons of folks use it some beasts use it tho mainly ppl who wanna keep in shape. at nights you get the beasts lol. all equitment is handmade and the plates were made in the ship yard harland and wolff where the titanic was built. the equitment is 46years old.

the place is freezing in winter though like a sauna in the summer, a tin roof you see. old rusty and you can always get a good workout in it. here is a few more pics. the place and especially the owner have a million stories to tell.

When going below parellel you hit your glutes more than going parellel.  Both work the quads the same amount.  There have been studies done on this, check them out....

I speak from experience. Bottom line if you want huge quads like mine go to parallel and just control the weight. 20 reppers/setters baby!
