Hey im Simon, currently 109-110kg and aiming to build some size and lose a spare tyre. Im 6"6 or 199cm.

Started the skinny guy routine last night with remotegt. Now I have a benchmark to build from. results below:

Breathing Squats: 1x16 1x20 30kg

Light Pullovers: 1x10 1x12 12kg

Military Press: 2x8 1x4(point of failure) 30kg

Bent Rows: 3x8 40kg

Incline Press: 2x4 1x2 60kg

BB Curls: 2x12 25kg

Dips (machine aided): 9 and 6

I think im eating pretty good, im working by the caveman rule, if he couldnt get it, neither can I (excluding protein shakes and skim milk)

Goals -

6 Months - Squat 125kgs 2x20, Mil Press - 70kg 3x8 Bench - 90kg 3x8 Dips: 2 x 10 UNaided
and
not look like such a fatty in the mirror.

I havent tried a deadlift or a powerclean yet but give me time, probably have a go at it next fortnight with Brendon at Crossfit.

i do the same dips at you at the moment !! but legs straight at first i then bring them in to get out a few more as its a bit easier with your legs closer... you can also try putting your feet up on another chair or bench so your off the ground and placing weights on your legs to add more resistance...

However.. a proper dip is for chest and tri's and few other parts... bench dips only really work your tri's i think. so sooner you can do proper ones the better !

im going to try make a dip station up at work and screw it to the block wall in garage at home... !!

where are you living mate?

Im feeling pretty good. Biggest wish is I had a squat rack and bench. its pretty hard to put 60kg on your shoulders without a rack.

Im inspired by how much more I can lift in just 2 weeks. I know itll slow down sooner or later though.

I think im going to sell my home weights and start going to a gym nearby once I run out of plates at home.
