I dont think bread is as bad as people make it out to be, especially if your working out. Ive eliminated all bread products for the past 3 weeks, and I havent noticed any difference in body composition. Although maybe you should eliminate croisants... how many do you eat a day? Do you know how much butter they put in those things!

Sorry to hear about your phone. I think people just dont want to get involved and hence why no one has returned it to you.

Well, that makes them suck even worse, lol. In the croissants, I believe there are 9 grams of protein, 55 grams of carbs and 28 grams of fat per 100g. The exact butter they have in them, I don't know it.

Too bad about the phone. Have you tried calling the bus company? When I once found a phone in the bus I just delivered it to the bus driver.

Your diet looks delicious :)

Yeah, I agree that my diet is awesome, and being able to have such a diet and still keep my 6-pack is even more awesome!

I have noticed a BIG increase in bodily hair (especially chest hair) in the past week. Also, my face has got a tougher look, comparing photographs from 3 weeks ago. Someone must be injecting testosterone in me while I am sleeping, I can't find another explanation...

26/03/12 Back and biceps

Pull upsx 10,8,8 Damn I suck at these. I even suck more because with the short rest periods, my strength goes out of the window. I can get about 20 in a single set, but somehow can't get 3 sets of 10 with 30 seconds rest in between.

Lat pulldowns, wide grip
3 sets of 12


Seated cable rows
45kgx12x3

Upper back cable rows
2 sets of 12, 1 set of 10


PureStrength High row
3 sets of 10-12 reps. Last set was 40kgx10 per side

Cable curls
17,5kgx12x3

DB curls
8kgx12x3


Seated rear delts
10kgx15x3

Ext. rotators
7,5kgx8
5kgx12
2,5kgx12, the good thing is my ext. rotators have got strong enough so no pushing exercise is painful atm. This rocks. I bet all the upper back, read delt and ext. rotators work that I am doing will show once I get to bench heavy again.

27/03/12 Shoulders and triceps

Seated DB press
8x20
12x15
16x15
20x12
22x12x2
22x8, SS with 18x8

Side laterals
8kgx12
10kgx12x3

Standing BB press
25kgx12x2
20kgx12, shoulders were extremely pumped, so I stopped at these. Since I go by feel, I felt awesome by this point, so I stopped.


Hedlesky's BB skullcrushers/close grip bench
20kgx12
25kgx12x3, way too painful LOL. They send extreme amounts of blood in the triceps. This exercise is a keeper.


Cable pushdowns
12,5x12
17,5x8
15x12
7,5x15, 2 second eccentric, 2 second concentric, 1 second flex at the bottom.


DONE. Triceps and shoulders were colpetely fried after this workout. Total work time 30 minutes. I am thinking how the hell somebody stays in the gym 2 hours working shoudlers and triceps, while I trained them in 30 minutes.

Walking lunges

DONE. Good workout today. Another trainer in my gym told me my legs are way too big, when do I plan to get them? I told that atm, they are 67-68cm(maybe they are more, I don't know). At about 80, I am going to be ok. She looked at me straingly.

31/3/12

I went back to my hometown for the weekend, spend all my time drinking and smoking. I went to the gym with a friend and we did some power cleans and jerks up to 100kg, some power snatches up to 70kg, front squat up to 100x3 and low back squat up to 160kg. Everything felt fine and good, despite having slept only 2 hours the night before. My life is bro at the moment.

But, since I am out of my mind sometimes, I went out partying in Saturday, went home home at 7:30AM, grabbed my stuff, a coffe, and went to the stadium... So at that point, I was awake for about 28 hours straight... I landed on my back (don't ask me how, I don't know how the hell I did half a backflip)..., my left tibialis anterior had cramped up really bad, my right SI joint hurt like a motherfucker, and even walking was painfull.. REALLY tight... having pains EVERYWHERE in my lower body. Shit, 96kg is way too much for a long jumper...LOL!


You are one crazy mofo.
