    Dang right you need to show off!

    That's a nice thing about keeping a log. They keep you honest and give you a reason to work ever harder.

    Dead right there, Oldster. Just imagine putting in your log, "I didn't go to gym on Monday, because it was comfortable in bed."
    And, "I was going to do a 5 rep PR in the deadlift, but the first rep felt heavy, so i didn't try another."
    Ain't going to happen. Your manhood is on display.

    Yep, when you log your workouts, your manhood, or womanhood, is definitely on display for everyone!

    Took me a while to read through your past couple sessions. Had to stop a few times to rest and catch my breath before I could finish!

    A lotta good work, man!

    Well, i would be better pleased if I was doing CGBP 400 lb, and squatting 500 lb. If you lowered 500 lb on my shoulders, the next second i would be face-planted.

    mon 12-3-2018.

    gym closed for public holiday .....

    so, i don't get to do my breathing squats

    sob

    How sad, too bad, never mind.

    so did a bit at home with my 25 lb bar and 16.6 lb dumbell.

    split snatch (25 lb) 5x5.
    split C+J (25) 5 sets of 3.
    OA curls (16.6) 10.
    Concentration curls (16.6) 10.
    Tricep extensions (16.6) 10.
    Lying cross body tricep extensions (16.6) 10.
    Swiss ball crunch. 3x10.
    SLHR. (16.6) 3x10.
