However 200lb with a nice trim waist looks very good.
Especially at only 5ft 11 tall. I would look enormous also with a reasonable bf%. It's been said a lot on here that getting from 190-200 flabby-ish to 200 rock solid requires getting to 220 or so first. I'm trying to eat relatively clean but with a shed load of protein in there. I can't resist junk food now and then though! For me at this stage, it's about getting weight on the bar. I know that will mean getting heavier, and that's cool. I've been too arseways about my goals before!
I've even decided on a long-term goal of 3xbw squat, DL, 2xbw bench, 2x Bw row and 1.5x bw OHP. May not be realistic but in 8-10 years, who knows right?

Did 4 x 4 minute run yesterday with 2 min recovery, covered more ground and felt way better than the usual slog. Also did a whopping 2 sets of 36 push ups (one before the run (felt easy) one after (really hard))


Got to the stage now where I can establish if I have reps in the 'tank' so to speak as PR ville will be coming 3-4 weeks after my return from holiday.
Week 3 Day 3
Squat
65x5
75x5
85x5
95x5
107.5Kgx5
95 felt tough, 107.5 felt fine and definitely reps in the tank. Still 10kgs away from equalling 5 rep PR

BB Rows
40x5
45x5
50x5
55x5
62.5Kgx5
Smooth all the way up, more here for sure, 5kgs from equalling PR.

Bench
42.5x5
52.5x5
62.5x5
72.5x5
82.5x5
Probably should have started higher but I was using the low bench for the first time as the other was occupied. Felt good @ 82.5x5 though. Just 5kgs short of equal PR for 5 reps here and lots more to come.

Chins
B/W: 9,7 Not bad, would have been a PR only a week or 2 ago.

Dips
=+20kg: 2 x 8* PR
Made to work for these, especially since the belt was a pain to attach today

Farmers Walk
35kg dumbbells: 3 x 20 steps (length of gym) might drop weight here and try to do 2 lengths of gym.

Abs
Decline sit up: +6kgs: 3 x 10
Side bends: 27.5kg dumbbells: 3 x 12
Serratus Crunch: 8kg dumbbells: 3 x 12

Did 2 x 7 minutes run at a fast (for me) pace. 2 x 40 push ups yesterday.

Week 4 Day 1
Squat
70x5
90x5
107x5x3
Felt difficult but happy that form is holding up. Third set was probably the best of the 3 which is encouraging. Had to wait for some guy who was curling in the squat rack

Bench
52.5x5
70x5
82.5x5x3
Had to use low bench again. It's great for getting the arch and foot drive, the only minus is the bench is so low, you have to lift the bar out which slightly messes up the form. Still, encouraged by the ease of the bench today and it was surprisingly easy. Certain that a PR will be mine in October.

Rows:
42.5.x5
52.5x5
62.5x5x3
Easy sets and equally certain that a massive PR will be mine in October.

Pull ups:
BW: 7* 5.5: Yessir, another pull PR

Weighted push ups:
+20kg: 14*, 11: Very hard but that constitutes a PR also.

Abs:
Decline sit ups: +6kg: 3 x 12
Side Bends: 30kg: 3 x 12
Serratus Crunch 9kg dumbbells: 3 x 12

Exhausted after this workout. Took me a few minutes to recover.
