Keep them coming Tim. Hopefully soon I won't have this head, nassle, running nose cold and I too can hit the Deadlifts. I know what you mean about the back ... most times I can get away with it but the odd time .

Week 4 Day 1 - Bench 85% 5*5

26/09/06
Start: 3:15
End: 4:00

-------------
5*5 80kg Bench Press 5/5/5/5/4

4*8 55kg Tricep Extension 8/8/8/8

4*8 191kg Leg Press 8/8/8/8

Comments: Stupidly forgot my gloves, so swapped the deaedlift for the bench day. I'll DL tomorrow. Ah well, can't complain with the lifts, I've almost busted a full 5*5 on 80kg.

By the way, I should just explain that I intend to keep at 85% for the rest of week 4. Then I'm going to switch to something a little more bodybuilding oriented - mainly just because I feel like a change. I've done 5*5 till my eyes bleed, and want to try something new - I'm thinking a Waterbury HFT-like scheme.

I'm also going to stop logging on FA.com at the end of this cycle. I feel that, coming up to a year of logging (I started on October 21st if you see the first entry), I should stop - it's been a great learning experience for me, and I hope it helps other people who want to see what a year's worth of weight-lifting fun entails, and want to see some pitfalls that I fell into along the way. At some point I'll write a quick list of what I've learnt over the year, what I did wrong, what I did right, etc.. It may not benefit anyone but me, but I find it helps to write these things down. Thanks for all the support from you forum frequenters along the way!

Edit: Oh, and I'm really sorry about all the totally messed up dates over the last few weeks - I've been copying and pasting the whole form to type into, and as a result kept forgetting to input the correct date!

Did I understand you correctly Tim, you are signing off of FA ... like never going to view and post again ... or are you just not going to be posting anymore of your workout?

I can certainly understand stopping posting your journal as that does take dedication as I'm finding out in the Mods Journal, but I don't mind. My thing is I think I provide too much information and heck, probably the only person reading it is Cord or myself and probably just me.

If you are putting FA aside altogether as you need a break then I wish you the best in your training. You've been an insperation and very level headed person and your are years older then you appear. Enjoy life, enjoy your training and take care of yourself Tim ... you will be missed.

Woah, you should edit that last bit Dereck, I'll still be around, just without a log! Anyway, I'm still reading your log and from the views it looks like a lot of others are too... I think it can only be helpful to see how other people are putting the theory into practice

I read your woffle Dereck

Tim may I say just how well you have done, you've kept organised and at it.

Just out of curiousity, how much weight could you lift for chin-ups and bicep curls when you first started and how much can you do now?
