Iv'e just done my first workout.
Workout A of the 5X5 program I'm following.
Figured out how much I can lift at the moment for 5 reps.
I'll just include the major lifts I did for now.
BENCH PRESS: 66 pounds/ 30 kg
BENT OVER ROWS: 77 pounds/ 35 kg
PROBLEMS I HAD.
*So I ned to buy a squat rack, as I have no way of getting the weight onto my back.
Until I buy one, I'll be doing Bulgarian split squats and jump squats for now. No where near as good as squats obviously, but working out at home its the best I can do right now.
I'll get a squat rack as soon as possible. I have everything else, will show you a picture of my gym soon, took ages to build, can't believe I forgot about the rack.
*I started to feel really sick and had to sit down half way through the workout, Think maybe this was the vegetable shakes I'd been having throughout the day to get my veggies in repeating on me. I'll try switch things up a bit next time, unless you have any reasons as to why I might be feeling sick mid workout.
Diet went great until after my workout.
I realized I had dinner left to eat which was sweet potatoes and fish.
Would've been able to handle it ordinarily but as I said, I felt really sick and had to lay down for a bit. Maybe I overdid it.
Managed the rest of the meals fairly easily though. Should have no trouble getting through 2500 calories a day once I get this sickness thing sorted.
