Todays session was awesome... I really enjoyed the deadlifts, which is new territory for me as normally really struggle with them. I kept the technique tight and didnt go too heavy and try and be badass lol, i just worked the movement PROPERLY...

The cumulitive effect of the weeks work and the slightly higher reps/lower rest time finally made itself apparent today as i couldnt add the extra reps across the board on everything, curls wasnt a surprise, but bench was. Doing shoulder beforehand definitely was a factor and I hed to keep the reps at 10for the final 2 sets... Thats fine though, just dont know now whether to keep the reps the same for Monday I will be upping the weight on shoulders, but dropping the reps back down to 8 and seeing how I go. Squats will increase the weight to 80 and do straight sets again, BB Row I will keep the weight at 60 but go for straight 12's.... Curls will remain the same and so will dips and calves (I actually went backwards on calves as they were still hurting from the previous two sessions ) I have only ever worked calves a MAXIMUM of 3 sets per week before, so this is real new territory for me. Dips felt strong again, but i really had to grind out the last 3 reps of the final set

I have some ideas how this program is gonna evolve for me too, but that can wait...

Total workout time 55 mins

My thoughts on the fullbody style/routine so far Here.
