Day 1

Not feeling too well and forgot what reps I had to do for my workout. NOT a good day.

(not inc warm ups) (weight*reps*sets)

Hack Squat Machine - 110*5*3
Glute/Ham Raises or pullthroughs - 44*8*3
Seated Row Machine - 66*6*3
Barbell or Dumbbell Curl 25*10*3

Could have done better, but i just wasn't 'there' today. Guess this is what happens when you spend 3 days sat doing nothing and eating takeout.

Just stay consistent and get your diet in order and fat will come off and strength will come.

Good luck with martial arts, I never had the chance since no real places around me for it but I've always wanted too. Mental toughness that comes with this should help in your fighting.

Thanks a lot! Getting my diet in order will be fairly tough for me (lots of changes) but it should happen eventually. Do you know of anything that can help tracking my diet? [Preferably free, I can't afford much]

I've always wanted to do MA as well, but up till I started learning guitar about a year ago, I always thought I lacked the mental discipline to stick with anything that involves hard work :(

Day 2

Injured myself last Saturday doing deadlifts and have been getting a pain in my pubic area right near the top of the inside of my leg ever since Sunday. I narrowed it down to 2 things: Either I've pulled my Rectus Abdominis (most likely); or I've got an Inguinal Hernia (not very likely as there is no lump). Going to give it a day or two, and if its healed up then I know I'm alright, and if it hasn't changed then I'll go see a doctor just to be sure.

Looks like I have to miss the ab work from tomorrows workout then -.-'

Day 3

Missed out ab work, but my RA feels better, was concerned there.

Todays workout:

Incline DB Bench 35*8*3
Chest Press 123*5*3
DB Shoulder Press 25*6*1 + 20*8*2 (25 was just a little too heavy)
Tricep Pushdowns 77*8*3

Missed ab workout just in case.

Pretty good workout, gym was a bit full because I ended up going at a peak time but other than that its going good.

Unrelated, but 2/3 through Gears of War 1 on insane, haha

Day 5

Back Extensions - 154*3*5 (Will be back onto deadlifts next week, no pun intended >_<)
Leg Press - 176*2*10
Lat Pull Down - 126.5*4*6
Barbell Curl - 88*2*8 + 88*1*5 (Didn't take enough rest before the last set)
Calf Raises - 233.2*3*15

All weights as usual are in LBS, so excuse the annoying . numbers. Pretty good workout, 2 days off ahead of me now :D

I love those two days off in a row as well. :D Did you find out what was wrong with your back?

Just a pull (probably due to bad form) , its back to normal now so I can get back to dem deadlifts :D

Perhaps with a little less weight this time... It's wierd, 100kg I could do fine, but 105 and I pulled something :\ Might go down to 80 and check if my forms okay.

About the two days off, they're fun but I'm so bored right now its unbelieveable :thumbsdown:

Fitday is free, but it won't tell you what to eat. It just keeps track of it and tells you your cals/macros etc.

Thanks a lot man, that website really opens my eyes to what I'm eating.
