Absolutely loving training at the moment. Hit 3 PB's today, first on the super squat and then narrow leg press. Single leg extension muscle round was the third, so hardly anything to shout about but all good.
 
I am really enthusiastic about the progress I can make with these subtle changes to my plan. I am tired from all the work I am doing at the gym on the renovations but I am always fired up for training.
 
I have been feeling a little pull in my right outer pec when in the stretched position of the movement, so I am being cautious with my chest pressing. It didn't hurt at all and 160kg when up very easily, so I will hope to progress up and beat my PB very soon on that.
 
Finally I have had the bottle to add some progress pics... well a vid, so here you can see where I am currently at:

70kg DBs for 8! Nice!
 
Quick question mate as I know you don't record them.... do you tend to warmup for each exercise, the first exercise for that bodypart only or just the very first exercise?


I go off feel mainly and it differs depending on the muscle group.
 
For pressing movements I have a warm up for the rotator cuff and shoulders through every plane of movement first. I may do some light dumbbell or bar presses to get blood flow to that area and then build up on the exercise that is first on the list. Say I am pressing 200kg for my work set, I will put 50kg on and rep 4-8 reps, then add a plate and do a single, and repeat up to the working weight. This also helps me establish whether I am niggle free and strong. When I move onto a shoulder press, I will do the movement with a light weight to get a feel for it as my shoulders are temperamental. I try and do as little to fatigue as possible but as much as I need.
 
On pull day, I do very little. Some straight arm pushdowns or pulldowns on a very light weight, then I will build up to work set in a similar way to pressing. When I move onto the lower loading such as deads, I will warm up with a single adding 1 plate at a time.
 
Quads is dependant on my knees that day. I may do some extensions first or just do the first exercise without any weight on. I do not warm up on anything after the first quad exercise. I always start with a squat variant and then onto a leg press. Once the squats are complete I move straight into the leg press.


Thanks mate very detailed.

Don’t know what you have to worry about posting progress pics. You look incredible. Make mine look laughable.

Had a mental long day today as I opened the gym at 6am and worked through until 6pm when I then trained and got straight back on with work until almost midnight. Reminds me of the days we were building the gym but I am really happy with how things are progressing. The new set up with reception in the gym is going to be epic. New entrance doors are being installed on Thursday, so in theory there is nothing stopping us moving through other than finishing the work in the gym which I am plodding along with on my own when I get chance. We will 100% be complete by the turn of the year but I won't kill myself getting it done.
 
Training started extremely well with a PB on the first 2 exercises. I think I tried too hard to hit PB's on the exercises immediately afterwards and form wasn't optimal. Felt good and big though and even trained in a vest for the first time in a long while.

Cheers Dave, slow but steady progress but happy with everything at the moment.

Last year I had an investor, so I own 75% of the shares but run it on my own. Business is ok but will be better. At the moment I am satisfied with the fact it provides an income for both Codie and myself whilst giving us great fulfilment. The first two years have been spent investing on making the gym as good as it can be and now the focus is on generating more profit.

This was a really tough session and very demanding. I was absolutely hammered by the end of the session. I have adapted the way I perform the rack pulls now, so there is no stop at the bottom. I set the spotter bars lower, so that I can come down to just under my knee and then control and reverse. It means I have had to back off a lot on the load but it is far more focused now.

I have dropped more weight this week after a decent gain last week, so food will be pushed up again. I have a few more options on how I intend to increase calories. I will be adding protein in as well as upping the calories from carbs and fat. My waist is down though which is a positive.
 
Diet has been pretty consistent this week and training has gone well. My metabolism and digestion is in a very good state at the moment but unfortunately this means I need to eat more. I am finding I am starting to get more hunger on non-training days though.

Weight - 232.8 (-1.8)
Waist - 84.5 (-0.5)

It is getting to the point where I am starting to struggle adding calories in the way in which I would prefer to as I am having to take carbs away from the workout perimeter. I like to have pro fats or pro carbs and not all 3 macros in a meal but I am adding in carbs before bed now along with my whey and almond butter.
 
I am aware that my non-training day needs to change as it is too low in cals but I never really get hungry, so it has to be fats that are the main increase.
 
Training day is the same breakfast but I am upping my intra carbs to 130g. The highest I will go with this is 150, so it gives me a little more to play with. PWO and PPWO are exhausted as far as I am concerned, so I need to add in some carbs that will go down easily, so I have found some low fat ice cream that will go well with my whey and almond butter pre bed.
 
On non-training day, I am adding an egg to meal 1 and increasing my gammon to 250g from 200g. My chicken is also going up 25g in meal 5.
 
This adds 174 calories to non-training and 279 to training day.

Nice promo vid! Very nice looking gym as well, must be very proud to own a place like that. I already knew it was a good gym just based off some of the vids and images you've already posted on here and IG, but was wondering if it was a joint partnership. So to be owning 75% of it is awesome.

I was the sole creator and owner but I needed a cash injection late last year so I have a silent partner now. I still make all the decisions and run it but had to give a chunk to allow for it to keep running and growing at the time. I may end up buying them back in the future though.

I didn't have a great start to the day yesterday and as a result the start of my training suffered. I was stressed, rushed and didn't have as much time as I normally do, so missed the bulk of my breakfast. I started off on hacks and my knees just felt terrible. I was unhappy with 150kg, let alone 250kg, so just backed off and did a few sets on a modest weight. I did the same for leg press and completely avoided lunges. I could have very easily sacked the session off at this point.
 
I did pretty well on the upper part of the session though, so it wasn't all bad. I got a new PB on the Hammer Strength flat press but I don't think I can fit any more weight on it now, so there is not much progression left in terms of load. Dumbbell shoulder press was horrible for me a few weeks ago, so I reduced the weight today which felt much better on my joints and the ROM was also improved with no pain.
 
I think it is going to be one of those weeks unfortunately as I seem to be getting depressed and motivation is sliding and with that appetite which is going to make progression slide which in turn will make me feel sh!tty.
