Hi, I've been messing around in gyms for a couple of years now but never got really serious. Over the last 5 months I've got a lot more serious. I used to be a very heavy binge drinker, smoker and unhealthy eater. I've now quit drinking, smoking and I'm eating good food now 90% of the time.

Stats:

Male (Mick may have given that away :P )
24
84kg
183cm

I'll start the log with today which was not a training day but I got bored and decided to see how much I could Military press.

Standing Military press

50kg x 8 (warm up)
60kg x 4
62.5kg x 1
65kg x 1
67.5 x 1
70kg x1 (first attempt failed, overbalanced backwards and had to "abort")
70kg x 1 (success!)
72.5 x 1 (FAIL... big-time, couldn't get it up ... tried twice) :( :( :(

My goal is to press at least bodyweight so I've got a lot of work to do. Anyways I'll keep this updated. :lol:

Tried to do some squats today but my knee wouldn't have a bar of it. Started out very light (50kg) but slight pain came back after a few squats so I stopped. I'm really disappointed, so frustrating :( I'll just have to give it more time I guess.

Gave up today after not being able to do squats (sulk) :angry:

EDIT: Just tried again, this time with knee wraps, with much more success. Was able to work up to 70kg for reps without any pain (still light I know but it's a start, don't want to try to heavy too quick) . I'm not sure why but the wraps help my weak knee. I'll keep using them from now on.

SMP (cleaned off floor) feeling a bit weak by now probably wasn't the best idea

60kg x 8
60kg x 6 + 4PP
60kg x 4 + 3PP

Poor effort :(

Tricep Pulldown Machine Jigga

Whole stack (said 75, I assume that was in pounds) x 10
Whole stack x 8
Whole stack x 7
40 x 13

Squats (rock bottom)

60kg x 10
70kg x 10
80kg x 10
90kg x 10
60kg x 15

This was without the knee wraps I've been using for a couple of months now since I injured my knee. I noticed that when I struggled I'd twist one of my legs around, and the knee would buckle inwards (the one that I injured)... so it's safe to say that is probably how I injured my knee in the first place. I only do it with that knee, I'll have to try and rectify the problem somehow.

I think the guy next to me was trying to match weights with me. But he didn't even squat anywhere near parallel!! And he was only doing about 10 reps with 60kg. I was so annoyed I wanted to say something but bit my tongue.

Been in WA working for 3 months. Thought I'd start posting in the log again. I'm 79kg at the moment. I want to get back up to around 87kg lean. All my PB's are around the same. 110kg bench, 180kg DL, 72.5kg MP, and not sure with squat but I'd say it'd be too embarrassing to post up. I really want to focus on legs for the next few months and I'll be doing legs 3 times a week. My legs are pathetic.

Bench

50kg x 10 + close grip x 8
60kg x 10 + close grip x 8
70kg x 8 + close grip x 7 (wrist started to hurt here with close grip)
70kg x 8
80kg x 8
90kg x 5
90kg x 3
90kg x 4 B)
80kg x 6

Pushups, dumbell fly + dumbell press circuit thingy no rest between exercises x 2.

Dips

Squats
Split squats
Standing calf raises

I'm going to give bench and SMP a miss for a week and just do my leg and back stuff. Both my wrists are sore, and my right shoulder is sore so I'm going to rest them up for a bit. I also plan on training less. I'm going to start a 3 day a week program now I'm back working 6 days a week on construction.

Monday

Legs (squats, split squats, calf raises)
Chest (dumbell bench, bench or close grip bench, flies/some cable machine stuff)
Some abs stuff

Wednesday

Legs (squats, split squats, calf raises)
back (deadlifts, bent over rows, pulldowns)
Little bit of cardio

Friday

Legs (squats, split squats, calf raises)
shoulders (DB press, SMP BB, front raises DB)
Some arms stuff

That's the program I'm thinking of doing, I'll be doing 5x5 reps/sets on the main stuff. Starting next week.
