    chest shoulders triceps, week 3

    flat bb bench press
    60kg, 3 x 8

    incline bb bench press
    50kg, 3 x 8

    pec deck
    35kg, 20, 15
    30kg, 15
    30kg, 10
    drop set, 20kg, 30

    seated lateral raise
    7.5kg, 3 x 15

    tricep pushdown, straight bar
    49.5kg, 17, 17, 15

    with rope
    22.5kg, 10
    18kg, 14, 12

    very happy with this workout, thought I might really struggle but things went really well.

    reckon it helped a lot that I got to the gym again so I didn't have to use db's and I did go easy on lateral raises but all round an excellent workout.

    used the bb bench instead of smith machine and this is definitely what I will be doing from now on.

    triceps are really increasing in strength, last time I did tri pushdown at the gym got 36 reps total at 49.5kg, this time got 49 reps at the same weight, 13 extra reps over the 3 sets, got to be happy with that.

    my shoulder/arm seems to be comeing good, I will still take it easy for the rest of this week and next week is the first deload week in my new program, after that should be all systems go to start getting into some good workouts.

    back biceps, week 3
    bb row supinated
    60kg, 5 x 10

    deadlift
    100kg, 4 x 10

    still staying clear of movements that agrivate my arm, supinated rows are fine but using a pronated grip isn't so good and neutral grip is even worse.


    just avoiding any direct bicep stuff for the moment until it calms down.

    deadlift went well, used straps to give my arm as much protection as possible.

    45 leg press

    good workout, could have gone a bit heavier/few more reps on pretty much everything but then it wouldn't have ben a deload week.

    chest shoulders triceps, week 4, deload week

    bb flat bench press
    60kg, 3 x 8

    bb incline bench press
    50kg, 3 x 8

    pec deck
    30kg, 3 x 20

    smith machine over head press
    25kg, 3 x 15

    49.5kg, 17, 15, 15

    good workout, deload week so not trying to make any improvements.

    used the smith machine for ohp and it felt good, will probably use this again in the future.

    my shoulder/arm is still giving me grief, just trying to rest it as much as possible while still perserveering with my routine if it doesn't settle down I may have to change my routine and give upper body work a total miss for a while, let's hope it doesn't come to that.

    back biceps, week 4, deload week
    bb row supinated grip
    60kg, 5 x 10

    deadlift
    100kg, 4 x 10

    arm is feeling better since this is a deload week will have the weekend off so hopefully by next week should be pretty much sorted.

    rows felt really strong, felt like my form was very good and let the bar go right down for a full extension of my arms on each rep and felt like I could have gone heavier, still want to go for higher reps before I do go any heavier.

    deads feeling really good also, the first few reps of each set felt light as, by rep number 7 it was getting more challenging but still getting 10 without much trouble, will go for more reps here before going any heavier also.

    legs, week 5

    hack squat
    40kg, 15
    50kg, 3 x 10

    45 leg press
    160kg, 3 x 20

    lying leg curl
    25kg, 3 x 15

    machine back extension
    80kg, 3 x 10

    standing calf raise
    20kg, 2 x 20, 2 x 15

    good workout, went for the hack squat to give my arm more of a rest as it is still playing up a bit.

    just not sure what exactly is the problem, I know I have some bursitis so hopeing it is just that and I haven't stuffed anything else up like a bicep tendon or rotator cuff.

    65kg, 2 x 8

    bb incline bench press

    good workout, arm seems to be comeing good and went pretty hard this workout.

    increased weight on flat bench, stayed the same on incline but will up the weight on it next week.

    went up on smith machine OHP and still got 15 so will up it next week also.

    getting to half decent weight on pushdowns

    back biceps, week 5

    bb row supinated
    60kg, 5 x 10

    deadlift
    100kg, 3 x 13

    still not doing any direct bicep work, should give it a go next week as feels like whatever the issue was is comeing good.

    really feeling strong on rows, definitely feel I could go heavier but am just concentrating on perfect form at the moment, when I feel this arm issue is resolved will go a bit heavier.

    deads feeling strong would have gone for more reps today except was feeling quite light headed at the end of each set, also noticed this after the sets of rows.

    I have noticed this for the last couple of times I've done this workout, haven't noticed it at any other time.

    thought about it today and realized I have used my dmaa pre each time this has happened so will make sure the next time I do this workout I won't use it and see if it still happens.

    Saturday, 15/12/18

    chest shoulders triceps

    bb flat bench press
    60kg, 3 x 8

    machine chest fly, push up superset
    fly's, 30kg, 2 x 10
    20kg, 2 x 15
    push up on pushup bars, 4 x 7

    standing db lateral raise
    10kg, 3 x 10


    tricep pushdown, db skullcrusher superset
    pushdown straight bar, 20kg, 3 x 12
    db skullcrusher, 10kg, 3 x 10

    so changing my routine a bit from now on it will be.
    legs on Monday
    Tuesday rest
    chest shoulders triceps on Wednesday
    Thursday rest
    deadlift based back work on Friday
    chest shoulders triceps on Saturday
    sunday rest

    today was a workout at my brothers home gym, it went well but my arm starting hurting on Saturday night after being good all week, the only thing different was that I did lateral raises again which I haven't done since my arm started hurting so I guess i'll have to give them a miss for a while.

    I am thinking it is the rotator cuff that is the problem area.

    I have pretty much identified what movements I can do that don't agrivate it so hopefully I can continue with my new routine and things will improve.
