Use the dumbbells for the jump squats, just hold them in your hands. Don't use a backpack, that's going to get dangerous.

Internets back up and running now so I don't have to walk miles to my Grandmas to write this :L


Messed up somewhat with weighing my self, it didn't log properly.
It didn't take it in stages, but I know that now I'm 9 stone/126lbs.
So I added 5 pounds since I've been on this program.
I don't know weather thats too much or too little though, maybe you know.

Heres my workout from yesterday.


MILITARY PRESS - 5X5 - 20KG/44LBS for 3 sets. The remaining 2 I took 1.5kg/3.3lbs off.
DEAD LIFT - 5X5 - 64KG/141LBS
LAT PULLDOWN - 5x5 - Couldn't log the weight, but pulldowns are only a one off anyway (explain below). All I know is that I picked a weight where I could hit 5x5.
DIPS - 5X5 - BODY WIEGHT + 6.5KG/14.3LBS
DUMBBELL LATERAL RAISES - 5X5 - 8KG/17.6LBS
+ SHORT AB WORKOUT. V UPS, CRUNCHES, ETC; Don't really know what I'm doing.


Good workout overall, made some progressions.
Went up 1.5KG/3.3LBS with dips, 3KG/6.6LBS with dead lifts, and managed 3 sets with 20kg on military press (last week I only managed 1 and a half.)

My sister had a party with about 8 of her friends yesterdays, and one of them swung on my pull up bar vigorously and pulled most of it out the wall, so pull ups or chins were a no go.
Its fixed now though so I'll beagle to use it next workout.
I did Lat Pulldowns instead, although there aren't an numbers on the plates at the back. All I know is that I used 8 of them. No idea how much each plate is, but I'll be back to doing regular pull ups and chins next workout so It doesn't really matter.
I also felt my legs needed more time to recover so I didn't train them this workout.

Something I noticed is that my physique.
One day I feel I look fat, but today, I have a definite ab definition.
Speaking of abs, I'm not sure how to train them properly. I feel I should be adding some weighted exercises but I don't know what. Any ideas?

Anyway thats it, working out again tomorrow, and have the luxury of writing this from home now the internets back on.

Good job.
Deadlifts work your legs. So, you didn't skip legs.
5 lb gain in body weight seems perfect to me.
Some days you feel fat, some days you feel lean. Seems pretty typical, we all do that.

Hopefully you will be pulling that bar loose someday as you become bigger!

I think feeling fat is simply a matter of diet and digestion and happens to about everyone.

As far as ab exercises go, there are so many to choose from. Just remember, you will not need to do much isolation work for abs. You can get ankle weights and do weighted leg raises and laying on bench leg raises. I also like cable crunches. You could also do weighted sit ups.

Ahh yeah, you told me that before didn't you.
In that case, should I just keep it lik this?
Train legs directly one workout, and indirectly with dead lifts for the next one.

good work linden,

on the militery press i wouldent knock the weight off so you can get all sets at 5reps instead keep the weignt where it is and try to push for a extra rep or 2 and try to hit all 5 over a few workouts, do you get what i mean ?

on abs you could do weighted sit ups but you wont need allot of ab work with the compound exercises you are doing.

Yeah I get it, I'll do that instead, thanks.
I thought that myself with the ab training actually. They should be getting hit pretty well already.

Have a couple of questions I forgot to mention.

In regards to military pressing, will it hit all heads of the delts? I'm assuming you get that wide shoulder look to your physique hitting the side head.

The other one was, should I be doing more for my triceps, like an extra isolation movement for them?
I don't have one for my tri's, I'm engaging the biceps allot in every workout.
And funnily enough its my biceps that seem to have grown most.
I would assume the heavy bench pressing and weighted dips would do the trick but I was just wondering, seen as they make up 2 3rds of your arm..
