Bulking For Britain Training Log
I'm taking Jonathan Byrd's advice and making a log. I've been training uses splits and I've changed to full body as I realised that splits can burn you out. I'm aiming for at least a 315 squat for reps from a 235 x6 squat. I didn't really train legs that mush so my bench is at 225 and I'm going to run the 5x3 auto regulation program by Steve Shaw. I've finished my exams so will put vids up.

Diet: 3500-4000 calories a day (teenage metabolism) For the benching, the extra food will only aid the program. Mostly whole foods I think.

1st session 6/30/2013 Heavy Bench

Squat 5x5 100kg (225lbs i think) took the weight down to work on form
Bench 5x8 75kg -seemed relatively easy but i kept the rest periods at 90 seconds
Dumbell Row 5x12 (final set 10 reps) 45 kg (100 lbs-weights seem to be heavier in England but not sure why)
Dumbell Bench 3x10 35kg dumbells (80lbs)- was a bit tired after benching but this seemed quite light and i could have got another 2 reps on the first two sets
Rippetoe skullcrushers 22kg (48lb dumbells.)
Deadlft 1x5 308lbs- form was decent and i reset the weight after each rep
Calves: 5x10 reps seated raises (last two sets 8 and 6 reps)I have been using the "Huge Gainer principles" to great effect. I never really trained them before and when i started hitting them a month ago they were only 14 inches. Now they are 15 inches after 4 weeks, only half an inch smaller than my arms! My ankles are 8.3 inches so i thought was doomed to never have any calves but they are growing a lot just from adding reps. I was focusing on the squeeze at the top and i was not bouncing. Next session i'll go heavier. Thanks again, Steve. I've watched all of your videos and i like how you have the perfect combination of broscience and science in them.

All in all, a good day. This is going to be a successful program, and it fits well into full body templates. Forgot to hit biceps. oh noes!

I played football (soccer) afterwards but I didn't really have any energy. Do you guys think it would be wise to drop all cardio? I don't want it to kill my strength and mass gains.

Filming of a few sets coming shortly
