    It looks like you've had a pretty good cycle so far. If you want to continue your fives, you can either stay with the weights you've been using, for another week or so, or perhaps increment a bit if you feel able.
     
  15. wk 6 17 Dec 07 mon, day 1
    (3 sets of 5)

    1) barbell squats: 185 ibs
    2) incline barbell press: 155 ibs
    3) pendlay rows: 135 ibs
    4) front military press: 110 ibs
    5) barbell shrugs: 185 ibs
    6) close grip bench press: 185ibs
    7) deadlifts: 285 ibs (1 set of 5)

    all poundages stay as per 3 sets of 5 last
    week except for deadlift which i upped
    by 10 ibs, i was aiming for 6 but could only
    manage like 5 so.... [​IMG]

    yeah tunnelrat, think i'll stick with the 5s poundages
    but i think my diet din really made it cause i'm
    still the same weight as the 2nd cycle.

    do you guys actually gain weight with EACH
    cycle? (cause the poundages go up by a bit
    etc, so u eat more etc, u know all inter-linked)

  18. wk 6 19 Dec 07 wed, day 2

    got up of bed all cranky, grumpy &amp; irritated.
    partly due to morrow being a public holiday
    &amp; I still need to go to work &amp; my boss returns
    from leave &amp; i need to run errands early in the
    morning on a public holiday morrow. (family
    commitments so gotta do it).

    I do really wanna catch up on some sleep &amp; perhaps
    sleep later as I&quot;m usually a morning person &amp; I can't
    sleep once I'm awake. it's been this way since e last
    few wks running errand early sun morning.

    e climate has been nothing but rain rain rain &amp; i mean
    really pouring &amp; it just makes the mood worse.

    I can't train my usual poundages today as I gotta
    do something at night, so it'll be a mad rush if I
    were to go train in evening, go home, then go out
    again.

    so later, i'll do my HST training in e office gym
    &amp; i'll have to modify it with prob 2 sets of 10
    (lunch time is only 1 hr) &amp; all they got are stupid
    dumbbells &amp; a universal rack, heaviest dbs are
    25 kg or 55ibs. guess i'll have to make do.

    sorry for e bitching but i just feel like screaming now [​IMG]
