    Jimmy0's Workout Log (part SL part other)

    Hi guys, I am new to the forum! I have been lurking for a week or so and it seems like a friendly and knowledgeable place, so I thought I would join.

    I will start of with some background before going into my workout regime and log.

    I am 21 years old, about 6ft1 in height and 87kgs in weight. I have been working out now for about 8 months, however it has been somewhat disjointed, to say the least. The first 4 or so months I was just a newbie to the gym, going sporadically and doing any random workout of cardio and the machines. Then for the last 4 months I have been on and off the SL 5x5 program (I say on and off because my dedication to going 3x a week has been poor, leading to me often missing out on a workout.

    However I have now got a new gym buddy with one of the guys I work with, and we have got the following regime set in place:

    Monday - Chest / Tricep (Workout 1)
    - Bench press (8, 8, 6, 4 reps with increasing weight)
    - Incline dumbbell press (10, 10, 8, 6 reps with increasing weight)
    - Tricep pulldowns (10, 8, 8 reps with increasing weight)
    - Dumbbell flys (10, 10, 10 reps with same weight)
    - Machine flys (10, 8, 6 reps with increasing weight)
    Tuesday - Back / Bicep (Workout 2)
    - Pull ups (8, 8, 8 reps with just body weight)
    - Lat pulldowns (10, 10, 8, 6 reps with increasing weight)
    - Bicep curls (10, 8, 6 reps with increasing weight)
    - One arm dumbbell rows (8, 8, 6 reps with increasing weight)
    - Machine rows (8, 8, 6 reps with increasing weight)
    - Upright barbell rows (10, 8, 8 reps with same weight)
    Thursday - Squats / Bench / Rows - SL 5x5 (Workout 3)
    Friday - Squats / Press / Deadlift - SL 5x5 (Workout 4)

    I am a big fan of the SL5x5 program, and have certainly seem considerable results with it. But my gym partner is a fan of the isolation exercises featured in Workout 1&2, so we came to a compromise and set out the above routine.

    Here are my current SL5x5 weights (all in kgs and including bar)
    Squat - 85
    Bench - 50
    Rows - 40
    Press - 40
    Deadlift - 105

    We have only started this routing this very week on Tuesday, so in the following post I will post the 2 workout results from Tuesday and today.

    I hope this post has made some sense, my brain has literally just dumped onto the page and I have not re-read it or anything.

    5th April 2012 - 1 rep PRs
    Squat: 110kgs (242lbs)
    Bench: 70kgs (154lbs)
    Deadlift: 120kgs (264lbs)
    Total: 300kgs (660lbs)
