OVERHEAD PRESS

DEADLIFT

Current 50kg | Previous 40kg | Increase 10kg

I didn’t think I would increase my squat weight to begin with. I did the warm up sets than the 1st of the five sets @40kg. Feeling good I upped it to 42kg and managed to go the other four sets! I also used the fixed weight bar for the OHP. I was able to work on form and will up it to 20kg next time to prefect my form before moving on to the olympic bar.

For the Standing Cable Curl, the gym doesn’t the the correct bar. I used the rope attachment this time round but I think from now on I’ll just do barbell curls instead. By the time I was doing the cable exercises I had the gym to myself!

Starting to work out the best times to workout, I couldn’t do all this in a busy gym. I used to be terrified about not knowing what I was doing, how to use the machines, and having people look at me. Now I make sure I check out videos online first and basically ignore everyone else working out.
