I managed to miss my Squat and Deadlift goals and so took a week off to deload.
The progress I did make was OK though, from January 2011 to April 2011:
Squat: Started at 130kg – ended at 150kg
Bench: Started at 100kg – ended at 130kg
Deadlift: Started at 175lg – ended at 200kg
I’ve set some more long-term goals, the big 3 goals for January 2012 are:
They may seem like huge jumps for 8 months, but there’s nothing wrong with aiming high, especially with “beginners gains!”.
On a more expensive note, I’ve had to yet again throw out (or hand down) my shirts and some trousers. Replacing 17″ neck shirts with 18″ slim fit shirts. I’ve seen some alright looking 19″ for sale, so I’m not worried about the future!
The shirts I’ve purchased are mostly from Charles Tyrwhitt - http://www.ctshirts.co.uk – 4 x 18″ Slim Fit shirts for £70, bargain. And 1 x 18″ slim fit from Austin Reed http://www.austinreed.co.uk/ – this one feels like better quality material, but is also much larger than the others, cost £22 which is also an acceptable price.
