Your pull ups have come on leaps and bounds this year. Not long ago you were still using assistance. As for shrugs I've said it before and I'll say it again:

- Use straps
- Load up the plates
- Get it done

i agree with LtL on the shrugs... load up the bar, strap you self to it and pull, if it moves it a rep. Sod form and squeeze and MMC conetion just try to move the bar. When it feels like your arms and hands are gonna come out of the sockets than its almost heavy enough

Thanks guys!

Straps are definitely a must have.

If I am serious about progressing as much as I can ( which I am ), straps will help me do this.
I miss deadlifts though, they were great for my grip.
When I deadlifted, I had barely any issues with shrugs and back movements with regards to grip.

Friday 22nd April

AM Weigh In: 92.9kg ( 204.8lbs ) 0.5kg/1.1lbs Weight Gain

Weight gained since last week, I was expecting more since I have been creatine loading.

No workout today as it is Good Friday and the gym is closed.
Might do some form of cardio today, just to get out and do something.
Tomorrow will be Legs/Abs.

Workout Length: Approx 40-45mins

Workout Notes:

Pre Workout Supplement: Methyl Mass Sample

Been feeling a little off colour past few days, and the workout today certainly didn't help.

From the get-go in the gym I felt out of it, dizzy and light-headed big time.
I tried my best to ignore it and push through the workout, but I just couldn't with 100% effort.
Several times I felt as if I was going to black out and/or collapse in and between sets.
Had to do a 'low' volumed workout, there was NO way I could have pushed with 100% effort and do more sets.

I think what happened today was a result of:
A) Coming down with some form of virus/illness ( White patches on tonsils ), blood test with the Liver Enzymes showed a slight raise, which can be an indicator of coming down with an illness/virus.
B) Pre Workout Supplement full of stimulants and caffein

After today, never again will I use a pre workout supplement.
Heart rate was raised by a lot no doubt, blood pressure in myself felt out of whack.

Today was a real sucky workout, I probably shouldn't have kept going.
Sipping on XTEND in my workout made things worse too.

Everybody I have come in contact with over the past few weeks has been sick, so right now it could be catching up to me.

Couldn't do a cool-down with cardio or stretch, I felt like I needed to just get out of there.

Tomorrow ( Easter Sunday ) and Monday ( ANZAC Day ) gym is closed, so the workout week will begin for me on Tuesday.

Get some straps bro - I bought some uber cheap ones from the M&S store (around $10 incl delivery!), and have found them to be incredibly useful.
