    Workout.
    (numbers) indicates what i lifted on my own, the extra reps are with the help of a spotter.
    BB flat bench press - 40kg (excl bar) 11 (8), 8 (5), 6 (3)
    DB incline fly's - 15kg 10,10,10. Inproper form, my friend spotted it to me, i dnt keep my elbows locked, always had the suspicion i was doing these a bit wrong my own fault for not ckecking it up.
    DB bench press - 2x20kg 10,7,7

    BB close grip bench press - 20kg (excl bar) 16, 22.5kg 10 (8), 8 (6)

    Wasn't the most intense workout, i worked out at home in the living room with a couple of mates who kept talking to me, trying to make me laugh etc whilst working out, i was a bit pissed off really, was just a laugh tho i guess.
    One of my mates was playing ronnie coleman youtube videos of his cathphrases, that was pretty funny, hard to concentrate lifting when u wanna start laughing!!

    Well the 4 weeks are up, my diet has been pretty crappy the past two days aswell as today and i missed leg and shoulder day this week.

    Here are some statistics from my past 4 weeks bulking...
    - 10 days immaculate diet.
    - 6 days where i have gone out and gotten drunk.
    - 9 days where i have had small extras. ie coca cola, 1-2cans of beer.
    - 9 days where i have not had 6 meals a day.
    - 19 days where i have had 6 meals a day.

    I would love to have been immaculate the past 4 weeks but the reality is i am 19yr old student, i like going out clubbing, i like drinking and socialising, and depite this i have grown and my strentgh has increased. My progress will definately take longer because of this... but it means i don't have to sacrifice my lifestyle, so its all good!!

    I lost the bet, my arms have grown from 33.5cm to around 34.1cm in these 4 weeks.. my progress has slowed right down, before this bulk i was gaining around 0.5cm a week, i guess i was too optamistic to think this would last long !!

    Im having a weeks rest then gnna start a cut for around 7 weeks, which takes me up to my holiday!! i have definately put on some fat.. looking forward to seeing that come off in the weeks to come!!
