smith squat 65kgs plus bar 6,6,6,6 then 60kgs 5, 50kgs 8
db front squats 10kgs each hand 10,10,10,10 8kgs 4 6kgs 9
i really struggled with these never done them before and also my shoulders were pretty sore so holding them funnily enough was difficult... this does concern me because i do have a lot less energy lately and always tired. i pushed on but again wasnt the best workout. and when i say this its my energy levels these new exercises are good and killing me like the next lot.. lunges.. ahhhhhhh
split lunges bench did bodyweight far out this was tough...

calf raises so ive goten up to doing 60kgs plus bar for 10 reps. so i thought yeh ill do 20kgs plus bar for 100 reps... yeah NO that doesnt work
20kgs plus bar 23 reps then up to 38 reps then thought no way so 10kgs plus bar up to 53 reps then 68 did just bar lol 81 then 100.. roughly 10 second break or removing of weights then back under...
calfs and leg curl drop sets really burned. so i should feel them tomorrow.
am still not feeling quite right... i know its not the calories im eating really well actually now i got set plan. i definitely think im a little run down with something... oh well just keep resting up and pushing on.
not sure how i feel abou this workout.. clearly wasnt the greatest but i wasnt feeling great (still very achy and stuff i think i have a slight virus from working in the rain an stuff) but i went and got something done.
smith machine bench press 60kgs plus bar 6,4 so i lowered it to 57.5kgs plus bar 6 then drop set 6 then 50kgs 5 45kgs 8 (thought id be stronger but oh well its a starting point)
10-12 reps rest of these exercises
reverse grip db presses 17.5kgs 6 so 15kgs 11,10, 10 drop set 12.5kgs 6, 10kgs 6

decline flyes 15kgs 12,12,10,9 dropset 12,5kgs 8 10kgs 10
again decline flyes i found them really tricky having to get on the decline bench then reach down for dbells i ended up putting another bench next to it and putting the weights on there to lift it off. but wasnt too bad actually.

2nd set low 10 mid 11 high 10

3-5 rep range.
kneeling smith press 7,4,5,5,4,3 even though i got 7 first up the rest were in correct rep range so im not sure if i should of gone heavier?

rear delt flyes 11th plate 8,8,8,7
dumbbell front raises 10kgs 11,9,9,8,8
usually i do ab stuff but ive been having trouble sleeping again its been hot and everytime i clean up my diet i have so much more energy and like completely clear brain (only way to explain it is liek no brain fog) which is really good but i sleep less then wen i do sleep i wake up too late for gym. i need to fix my routine!
oh and extra cable lateral raises as i felt like i wasnt hitting it enough
3rd plate 6 so 2nd plate 13,12,11,12
may lose mates over this...
im starting to get pissed off... maybe bodybuilding lifting aint the thing for me.
i eat well i admit not perfect but **** the past 2 years ive eaten a billion times better then wat i have ever done and probably 90 percent of people. yet i still dont have the body i want. ive done everything ive been told will help. then i lose the weight and i look skinny.. i feel like ill never win. people say they will help wen ur down and out but comes to the crunch they too busy. fair enough your too busy just dont say you will help simple.
makes me question everything. like am i even doing this right am i lifting enough times a week am i doing the exercises right. am i even gaining muscle? i regret so badly doing the cut last year i lost so much strength and i feel as though i have less muscle now then i did before i started the cut.. so basically tryng to get to that and past it.... then other days i think i have more muscle as im doing 4 times a week instead of 3 ... i hit each muscle group with 3-4 exercises... when i never really use too.. so i think to myself how the hell can i have less... also wenever i dont work i think a lot so i been in my own head all day...
thing is nothing will change... and it seems to also come to the forefront wen its hot... wen i wanna be able to got the beach and be comfy with out a top on... i keep thinking be patient look to the future u will get there... **** though... its been ages 2 whole years and my lifts are ****... im determined though to reach my lift goals before i cut. and hopefully i wont get too much fatter in the process this is all i can do basically.
