    Goal is 90 kg by 1st of january
    my current body fat level is around 16% ill end up with 20%+(i hope less)

    Workout: 20.6.2010 start date
    Starting Weights:
    Squat - 40kg 3x5 Goal : 130kg 5 reps
    Bench - 80kg 3x5 Goal: 100kg 2 reps

    I have read the book and seen the dvd's, but still my technique requires improving i will post my video's in the near future, for some reason it isnt hard for me to deadlift the 80kg but i arch my back during the motion and other people have notified me of a pending injury, since then ive decided to practice deadlift 6 times a week to get the technique in place before adding the weights back.

    I seem to be getting stronger each workout i hope this lasts im gonna start creatine very soon when my bench is 90kg or squat 80kg without belt
    OK, then, that's very good. How are the weights feeling (you know what I mean). Try to record yourself especialy for the squats, it's very ease to screw them up when the weight feels heavy. Also the weights include the bar weight right?
