P.S. you should throw a few pics on here for comparison purposes. I like to go back in my journal and look at my old pics and my old diet/workouts. It's good learning/comparison.
will do just sorting my phone out (which i use as a camera) as i dropped it yesterday and now it keeps cutting out when i try to do something which uses alot of battery such as taking pictures

Im going to be uploading a few vids of mine soon just to check form etc. It's worth doing so you can correct any bad habits now rather than months down the line.
alright mate let me know when you do

Todays workout was alright, squats felt better I feel like i've got the bar in the right places now, although i did split my boxers straight down the back so atleast i know i'm getting deep enough.

workout today was good/bad. Good part being i managed to increase the weight a little on the overhead press, bad part is i had to lower the weight for my last set of squats, but i still feel like i'm progressing good with them (although i have split my second pair of boxers in a week, **** raggedy boxers!). I have also put on 7lbs in two weeks so now weigh 140lbs, is this a good amount of weight for two weeks?

Squat
60.5x2x5
82.5x1x5
110x1x3
137.5x1x2
160x2x5
154x1x5


Overhead press

44x2x5
55x1x5
66x1x3
77x1x2
82.5x3x5

Pendlay Rows
88x2x5
93.5x1x5
93.5x1x3
99x1x2
104.5x3x5

Dips BWx3x5

ah, split boxers, nothing better. 7lbs in 2 weeks is OK for now, but that will probably taper off, and it should taper off, it isn't possible to keep gaining at that rate without it being vastly fat, but don't stress for these first few weeks.

Its when you start tearing T shirts open whenever you lean forward just sitting that you need to worry. I did it to a work shirt in work the other day. Oh and be preared to buy a whole new wardrobe within the next 6 months! Im going to upload a funny pic shortly of me in an old shirt that was once baggy.
