Decided that tomorrow will be the beginning of my new program. Although I will be going home in 4 weeks for a week vacation, I think starting it now gives me something to look forward to when I come back from Ireland. So this will be 12 sessions which will go thusly: all weights in KG
Squat: 100 x 5 (3 sets)
Bench: 75 x 5 (3 sets)
Deadlift: 100 x 5 (1 set)
Cleans: 52.5 x 3 (3 sets)* Hope this is a good idea
Weighted Dips: 2 x 8 bodyweight to start with but should quickly make +10kg then add 2.5 kg to the belt thereafter).
Squat: 102.5 x 5 (3 sets)
Push Press: 50 x 5 (3 sets)
Bent over rows: 55 x 5 (3 sets)
Chins: 2 x ?: My best chins performance is 7 so far. So I do these or mid grip pull ups which also suck (4 is my best there)
As per the program, I will repeat session 1 and 2 adding weight whenever I can make the 3 x 5 with good form.
Should be able to manage 3 cardio sessions (30+ minute jog at the local park on off days) as I work from home and have a very sedantary existence outside my workouts. I might also add weighted push ups on one of the workouts or just once a week.
Anyway, to war! Looking forward
