    Had a great shoulder and triceps workout last night but an even better biceps and chest on monday. Went from 24,5 kilos in the drumbells biceps curl to 26,5 kilos. Did a 6 rep in the first set and when I hit faliure I did another 3 on the 24,5. Had a nice pump. Did two sets more but I had to move down to 24,5. Will work hard to hit 26,5 for three sets. Think it's most on a mind level. Long time ago I had some pain in the biceps after workout but I can still feel today.

    Had a day of last night. Cheated abit on my diet. Found an ice cold beer in the refrigerator and in seconds I started to feel a sudden wet feeling inside my mouth. Opened the beer and had it in one run. I can not describe the satisfaction.

    Today I will be doing legs together with a female friend. She want's to start working out and needs instructions. While we are at it I can squeeze in my workout aswell.

    I can only say one thing. I hate legs and getting coffee stacked. Had way too many cups of coffee before my workout last night. Had a major heartrate and feelt shakey. Somehow I did my workout after all. I really need to make it count during my leg workout. I have basically no fat on them what so ever which make them look kinda skinny. Will add more hardcore exercises like deep squats and legspress to get the hamstrings going. :)

    Today is my back workout. Forgot my back straps at home thinking of maybe doing shoulds again instead of doing a poor back workout. Don't wanna be doing chins with 30 lbs of extra weight in a weightbelt without my straps, too damn straining for the forearms...

    Just adding a weight curve. Just been doing it for a couple of days. As you can see it's going a bit up and down. I weight myself every morning. Alot of the weight changes depend on water retainment and stuff som I am not worried. Will be addning this curve every now and then. Will also add some pictures soon.

    Picture added. Not the best quality but anyways.

    New week new workouts. Today I have my pecs and biceps workout. Have seen significant gains in my arms lately. I wonder it it's due to my creatine in take or something? Well it feels really good. Compared two pictures one from november and one from feb and it was a huge diffrence. Guess it can be the diet too. I am way more strict now. Not gone let myself go that much this year. Will keep the body fat down so I don't have to work so hard i april and may.

    Well well. Not so much to say right now. Time to work.

    Thought I would update the weight curve. Feel like I am getting over worked out. Been doing heavy weight traning for around 6 weeks now and I can really feel it. Thinking of taking five to seven days off within two weeks. Well well. We will see how I feel. Here is the updated weight chart:

    Had a pretty good week on the workout department. Got abit drunk on sunday so I had to skip monday but it recovered pretty fast and have been working out pretty hard anyways. Have a new weightcurve and did a new body fat measurement. Went from a 12,2% to 10,9% in the last 8 days. Heading for 10-9% and then I will stop. Don't wanna get to love in that deparment. It's still months until summer and I don't wanna overdo it and strain the body too much. Well here is the new weightcurve and latest picture.

    Have a good weekend everybody.

    Have a new wieght curve. Actually dropped another 2 lbs during my rest week. Think it's mostly due to the fact that I quit taking creatine. Been on a 7 week cure and now I need to take it easy a couple of weeks. Will be fun to see how much strenght I have lost in the gym today. Hurt my wrist aswell. Was doing the ice skates yesterday. Almost like bambi on ice. :)

    New week new workouts. Had some problem with my wrist at the end of last week. Hope ít will go away soon. Don't want it to get any more worse. Bought some wrist straps so I get some extra support. Got this injury when I was doing shoulders. Did the free weight shoulder press with a bench bar. Was doing 154 lbs and then i had to bring it down and did it to fast. Feelt a burning sensation and have had problems after that.

    Will update the picture soon. Feelt really nice progress last couple of weeks. Will see what all you guys have to say.

    Had a great arm workout last night. Added some extra weights in my dips. Added another 10 lbs to my weight belt. Doing 65lbs extra weight now. :) Don't think it's the fact that I am stronger. I am also around 10 lbs lighter then two months ago. :)

    Had my monday bd meassurement too. Between 9.8 and 10,1%.

    Will add a new picture in the end of this week.

    Hi All.

    Had a great workout week. My wrist is not that sore anymore. Used the wrist straps and it getting better and better even if I workout. Also found this new back machine. It simulates the lats pull down but is alot more effective. Have a totally sore back today from wednesday. Also added some extra weights in the dead lifts. Saw some stars due to lack of oxygen but what the hell. Wanna do it heavy, why not do it all the way. Just added 10 more kilos but it's a fair jump going from 120 to 130kg. Feelt like I was going to shit my pants.

    Chest and legs today. Looking forward to the squats. Did them last week. Almost couldn't walk back home. :)

    New picture added. One month between the pictures. Not a big change but I feel like I am moving in the right direction.

    Have been having a terrific week. Been feeling really good in both body and soul. Went for a 40 minute run yesterday and I feelt so light in body and legs. Could easily keep a much higher pace then usually. No the feeling was great. Could even keep a very high pace in the last up hill on my run. My body was really working with my mind.

    Thought I would update my weightcurve aswell. It's getting more flat now (moving between 81-83 kg) but that's the way it should be. I am getting low in bodyfat and feeling in pretty good shape. Don't think my diet is hard to stick to. Kinda got used to the whole thing. Found a nice balance. Listen alot to what my body says. Is it low then I fill is it filled then I cut. :)

    Curve:

    Started loading with creatine yesterday. Will pobably gain a couple of pounds but I don't really care. Want the extra strength so I can do a really heavy period before I start doing my final summer cut. Not really looking for adding muscles. More into getting harder and have more pressure in the veins. Have started to develop some scary veins on the arms. Have guys scouting me out at the gym. Is that a good sign? *lol*

    Creatine

    Love the creatine rush I have in my body right now. Did my arms workout last night and hell it was freaky. Added another 4 lbs to my biceps dumbell curl. Did a 6 in the first set with the 57,5 lbs dumbells. I looked freaky afterwards. Veins sticking out on my arms and new veins that I have not seen before. Love this supplement. Would recommend it to anyone. If you are low on bodyfat you won't look puffy. I actually think I look more ripped now then before. I also don't understand the people that say that creatine will make you puffy. Sure it will make you retain like 2-3 lbs of water but the strength and stamina benifit to do that extra rep beats out that sort of bs anyday. Just making a stand for creatine. Try it and you will love it. :bb:

    Maybe you could show an example of your diet on a typical day? Like a page out of your daily food log (if you have one). Specifically, I was wondering how many calories you take in daily, what your macronutrient split is, your pre/post workout meals, what supplements you take and when, etc. Even some foods that you eat often and think have helped your progress would be of interest. Thanks again.
