I was so concerned about my 1kg weight loss, I had 8 UK pints of milk. Which is 1.2 US Gallons.
Nice job man! Is this going to become a daily habit?
Well, I usually have between 5 to 7 UK pints (0.75-1.0USG) a day, I just happened to get most of today's done by lunch time, so on the way home this evening I had another 2.
I've started a new thing where I somehow try to divert every endocrinology tutorial towards anabolic steroids. It's fun, you should try it.
Ha ha I'll have to try that once we start our endocrine stuff.
Squat: 127.5kg x 5 117.5kg x 5 x 2
Bench: 70kg x 5 x 3
Deadlift: 120kg x 5
Lol, I accidentally loaded up 127.5kg instead if 117.5kg. I got all the reps, but it did feel much heavier. I was worried why it felt so heavy, I took a 17.5kg jump from Monday!! Oh well, it's good to know it's definitely doable. I think it took a little out of me, the next two sets took a little effort.*
Bench was decent, my last 5kg jump so I'll do 72.5kg next.*
I dropped deadlift to focus on keeping my back extended during the entire pull. The lifts are easy I just was having trouble keeping my back extended. Before I couldn't even get extended in my set up; it was just about flat and then it would almost round during heavy pulls. Hopefully now if I start extended, it will just flatten out during the pull and not round.*
I also started doing some chins using the assisted machine set with 19kg(?) assistance. I suck at these. Did 3 sets of 5 reps, barely. Might use more assistance and build up more. I want to get some bands; I put on the comments board at the gym that they need to get some.*
I weighed 90.4 kg when I walked in the gym, and 89.6kg when I walked out.
Do you wear a belt on deadlifts?
Yeah, but the issue with the belt and deadlifts is that to get my back extended fully before the pull, I can't push my abs into the belt as hard as I can during squats. So I don't think I'm getting as much out of the belt as I do for squats. I don't think I can get it any tighter, it's just a single prong.

I get the same thing (DOMS) since I've been using a belt for deadlifts.
Bench Press 70kg: I see lots of squirming going on. Very slippery bench. For the last set, I got a yoga/stretch mat that has really good grip, I chalked it up and benched with that. It gripped very well.
More to come, waiting for them to upload.
Oh and sorry about the quality of the video, it got a little "The Ring" on me there for some reason. My camera is a little fucked and can't get any lighter. So lifting in black makes it harder to see what's going on. I'll lift in lighter colours next time... or get a new camera.

2nd Set: Douche Bags keep fucking with my vids. Also my stance was too wide to take unrack the bar properly and it got a little caught. Nothing like the 1st set of 127.5kg (which I didn't video), where I almost didn't get it out properly.
3rd Set: I am sincerely sorry for what you are about to see.
