    Did 235 on incline bench today. The angle of incline is really high and the rack hooks are pretty high up, so the hardest part was un-racking it. Took like 5 solid seconds before it was in place and not shaking. Kind of scary on incline, probably should get a spotter when I go up in weight.

    btw, how far do you guys go down on incline? I went to maybe 1 inch off the top of my sternum.

    Always touch my pec/upper chest when doing inclines. I feel that Im cheating otherwise. Same thing for military press or.shoulders press.

    Good session at the gym this morning. Hit PR's for deadlift and leg press for like the 7th week in row.

    Was very close to an injury while doing heavy calf raises in the smith rack. I used a low box to let the heels hang off and at the very last rep, when I was fatigued as hell, the whole box collapsed while I was standing on it. Somehow I managed to rack the bar and prevent it from crashing down on me.


    Also saw an indian guy in the gym I've never seen before. He looked pretty weak with sloping shoulders and all and when he walked over to the squat rack, I expected to get a good laugh. I was wrong.

    He pulled out a knee sleeve and proceeded to do a warm-up set with just the bar but with great speed and perfect form. I wasn't convinced yet and continued with my workout. Next time I look over, he's doing 100 kg for an easy 10 or so reps, still super explosive, ass to ground and no rounding of lower back. I felt pure shame with my 80 kg max squat [​IMG]

    Pull ups are gonna be a bitch today, back is absolutely raped from front squats. More traps and rhomboids though then lats so it should be fine. Going for 27.5kg for 10x3

    It gets considerably harder after the 4th week. Back when I ran it with some success I added an occasional couple sets of pullups/chins, but other than that you'll be doing too much.

    Hate dat feel when you're going out so you have to cram 2000 calories down before you leave, feel disgusting eating this much. How does madcow cause over training? Volume looks really low.


    edit: lul just realised kukis dp is frank yang.

    The intensity is very high after the 4th week.
