Haven't given up! haha

Our Internets been down for the last few days, so I've come round to my grandmas to write this up.
This is my workout from 2 days ago.

WORKOUT B

MILITARY PRESS - 5X5 - 20KG first set, took 1.5kg/3.3lbs off for the following 4 sets.
DEAD LIFT - 5X5 - 61KG/134LBS
DIPS - 5X5 - 60KG/123LBS
CHIN UPS - 5X5 - BODY WEIGHT
ONE ARM DUMBBELL ROWS - 5X5 - *18KG/40LBS

The actual workout went good, just was busy that day with school coursework, and ended up working out way too late. (12:00PM)
I never normally stay up that late because I realize the role sleep plays in my results.
I slept in the next day so I got 12 hours in.

Progressed with my dead lifts again, and with the one arm dumbbell rows.
With the dumbell rows though I did 2 sets with the weight above, but you'll have noticed I put a star before the numbers.
Basically I did 2 sets with that weight, but then I thought it was a bit heavy so I took off one of the plates so I was back to the same weight I used last workout.
Turns out I miss judged it though (don't know how :P), and that actually I was better off progressing after all.
For the remaining set I went back to the heavier weight.

So that was the workout.

I'm starting to wonder though, If I'm having enough rest between workouts.
I mean I hit more or less the same body parts every workout, and their only a day between each other. Just wondered, maybe you know.

I'm working out tonight, and I'll come back here and log it tommorow if the internet still isn't fixed.

Thanks for checking how I was doing by the way, I really appreciate it.

- Linden

It's enough rest if your strength is increasing...

You will feel fatigue coming, but I suggest you rest before it hits fully....planned deloads are your friend and a key to continued progress.

Well done Linden - sound slike your building some momentum as well. Over time, you will learn to listen to your body. If you feel you need an extra recovery, or "grow" day, then by all means take it. You may not need that extra day next week.

Thanks for the encouragement

Lee, that was body weight with 5kg in a backpack.

At the moment I can't really tell weather I need to rest or not.
As you said though over time I'll learn how to listen to my body.

As it stands at the moment It defiantly feel like I'm getting stronger, So I'll keep everything how it is for now.

Back at my Grandmas now so here's the new log for last night.

WORKOUT

BENCH PRESS - 5X5 - 36KG/80LBS
BARBELL ROWS - 5X5 - 43KG/94.5LBS
JUMP SQUATS - 4 SETS TILL FAILURE - BODY WEIGHT + 5KG/11LBS
PULL UPS - 5X5 - BODY WEIGHT
BARBELL CURES - 5X5 - 7.5KG/16.5LBS


Good workout. Progressed in all major lifts.
With the jump squats I put a backpack on and put one of my 1.5kg weights in it(3.3lbs), If you were wondering how I was progressing with those.
I doubt I'll be able to do that for long though. I mean If I up the weights nearly every workout, It wont really be possible. I can't be jumping around with allot of weight on my back.
Something I realized also is that I'm now strong enough to bench all the weight my barbell came with, which was 30KG which is 66 pounds. All vinyl weights.
The barbells really strong and can hold allot of weight, so I recently bought 100kg/220lbs of Olympic plates (allot of saving haha, and a pair of Olympic dumbbell handles, to tide me over for my first proper year of lifting.
I remember when I first got that barbell and those weights, I couldn't even bench all 30KG for 1 rep, let alone 5. It was impossible.
Yet now I bench over that, and 30kg is too light, just in that short time Iv'e been properly.
Shows Iv'e progressed allot since then. I could barley lift anything when I got that barbell.

Noticing differences in my physique almost every day. I'm looking more muscular, but also look like Iv'e put on a little fat, which doesn't look that great. Hopefully as I build more muscle it'll offset the fat somewhat and I'll end up like you said looking better in the long run.

Going to weigh myself when I get home, so I'll be back round here to log that tommorow too.
