    Default Upperbody 24/4

    Decline Bench Press - 60kg x 20, 100kg x 12, 120kg x 10, 140kg x 4(+1A), 140kg x 5, 100kg x 6.
    BB Rows - 60kg x 10, 100kg x 10/9/8.
    Military Press - 80kg x 4, 80kg x 6.
    Chin Ups - 12/7/5/4 @ BW.
    Tricep Pulldown - 50kg x 12/10/9 > 36kg x 8.
    Cable Curls - 40kg x 12/8, 37kg x 11 > 28kg x 8.


    Decline bench is so much easier on my shoulders, feels alot better and i can move more weight without pain.
    Repped out 100kg and 120kg like butter so i hit up 3pps and hit a PB of 140kg x 5.
    9 months ago i struggled getting 140kg on decline for 1 rep, feels good now.

    BB rows were slow good reps, felt real strong with these.

    Everything else was good, all done as slow controlled reps. Arms were blowing up with a sick pump.

    Default Back/Shoulders 27/4

    Did this workout after working 8.5 hours lifting 20kg boxes etc at work from 11pm till 7:30am, luckily NOXPUMP is a great preworkout.. that and trance pumping.

    Deadlifts - 70kg x 6, 110kg x 6, 150kg x 6, 180kg x 2 (D/O), 180kg x 2 (O/U) > 150kg x 3 (D/O).
    DB Rows - 50kg x 12 x 2. (2 sets each side)
    T-Bar Row - 3 plates x 10/8/7 (Big hold at top, 45 sec rest.)
    Lat Pulldown - 75kg x 10/8. (Widest grip possible)

    DB Shoulder Press - 34kg x 12/10/8. PBR!
    Lat Raises - 12kg x 12 x 4. (45 sec rest, slow form)

    Good workout given circumstances.
    Didn't expect to get a shoulder PB given they were already sore as hell from throwing huge boxes and stuff all night.

    Last few days i haven't been eating as much as id like to as iv started a new job working early hours of the morning without a break to eat etc.

    Great workout, went for a higher volume workout and worked well. Had a sick pump on my chest/shoulders and arms.
    All sets had about 60 secs rest, except when people came over to talk to me (so a few sets had 90-120 sec rest).
    Probably one of the best "pump" workouts iv ever had, so much blood in the muscles i felt amazing

    BB Bench - 60kg x 15, 100kg x 12, 120kg x 5, 100kg x 12, 100kg x 13.
    BB Rows - 60kg x 12, 110kg x 7, 115kg x 6, 115kg x 6+2.
    MP (Strict) - 60kg x 8, 80kg x 3.
    Push Press - 100kg x 2.

    Triple Superset

    BW chin ups - 12/10/8
    BB Incline Bench - 60kg x 12/10/8
    DB Lat Raises - 12kg x 12/10/8

    Tricep Pulldown - 49kg x 10/8/6
    Cable Curls - 37kg x 15


    Having only done chest and arms 2 days ago, and i was lifting **** at work all day. Felt exhausted before i even got to the gym, thankfully preworkouts were invented !

    100kg bench feels so light now, i easily had 15+ reps in me although the last few would be sloppy il admit. Decided against pushing hard as im not feeling 100%, but got a great workout doing lighterish weight.
    BB rows were strong, got a good hold at the top of the movement. Not to mention my grip had no problems, grip has improved dramatically over the last year.

    Military press were strict and slow, really coming along nicely. Push Press were intense, gets the adrenaline flowing quickly when you have 100kgs over your head lol. Happy with getting 2 reps, might have had a third but decided against pushing my luck.

    The supersets were awesome, pucked after them but intense pump from it.
    Looked awesome doing the lat raises in the mirror, had cool downlighting and had a sick pump (No brag)..

    (Little bit).

    Default 5/5/12

    Been unmotivated all week, made myself train today. Threw together a few things and had a bit of fun..

    Deadlifts - 100kg x 6, 140kg x 8, 180kg x 3. Only chalk used, felt good not using straps.
    BB Shrugs - 140kg x 12/14/10. Only chalk used.

    Grip strength has improved dramatically, would never have been able to hold 3pps so easily or 4pps for deadlifts.

    Leg Extensions - 5 sets @ 70-90% of working max..
    Leg Curls - 95kg x 10/10/10/10 , 75kg x 20.
    Seated calf raises - 5plates x 20/20/20/20
    Donkey calf raise - 145kg x 20, 115kg x 20.

    Default Chest/Arms 2/6/12

    Incline BB Bench - W/U bar x 20, 60kg x 12 x 2.
    Working sets - 100kg x 10, 110kg x 4 > 100kg x 2 (took 5kg plates off and repped), 100kg x 6 > 60kg x 6.

    Decline BB Bench - 100kg x 6, 105kg x 4, 100kg x 6.
    Incline DB Flies - 18kg x 12,10.
    Machine Flies - 90kg x 8.
    BW Dips (Widest Grip) - 12/6/4.

    BB Curls (Strict) - 40kg x 10,8.
    Concentration Curls - 12kg x 12,9,8. (3 sets each arm, same reps)
    CGBP - 60kg x 15,8.
    Tricep Pulldown - 42kg x 12, 8+2, 6+3.
    Preacher Curls - 37.5kg x 12,6 , 27.5kg x 12.

    Took 2 minute breaks for benching sets, after decline sets i started to rest only 30-50 seconds on remaining sets.
    All reps were slow and controlled with great form (well maybe a few grinders on bench lost some form).
    Unreal pump and my strength is improving, going to start cutting next week for about a month, just want to get down to single digit bodyfat.

    Consistency is the key
