    I am the worst at keeping a digital log.
    I do keep a great journal of all my lifts and training. It is bound together with duct tape and lives in my gym locker. I've had a journal for as far back as I can remember lifting. Thanks to one of my friends telling me that if I ever want to make gains a Journal is essential.

    I am 5 foot 7 inches and I am almost always 66 kilos. Yesterday I weighed in at 67 kilos.
    I've lifted on and off for about 10 years along with participating in one form of Martial Arts or another for a long time as well. I've always been the small guy in the group of friends that I've trained martial arts or lifted with. It's good motivation.

    This log should be a digital document of my attempt to gain about 8 kilos. I'd like to look like the dudes in the Rugby league. Rugby Union is amazing too. I'm also training to get in better cardio shape.
    Unfortunately I am in the poverty zone. I supplement my food needs with stolen ensures from the elderly in the hospital where I work as well as custards and single slice cheeses. My groceries are mostly dal, chick peas, and rice with some veggies. It's a hard life being and international starving student but my life just wouldn't feel right if I didn't train.
    I ride a bike for at least 30 minutes every day.

    8 kilos is a serious percentage of your current body weight, but your opportunistic attitude towards nutrition gives me confidence in your struggle.

    Taking advantage of your employment situation is a good start, but if you're going to pack on pounds you'll need to eat constantly at school as well. As a student, I always found awards ceremonies and department mixers to be a great source of free buffets. Stack 6 inches of cold cuts on a wheat roll, and you're on your way towards meeting your protein requirements.

    I'm looking forward to following your progress! Lift big and get large, my friend.

    This morning I ate the same thing I eat every morning.
    3 scoops of oats with 3 table spoons of flax seed, one stolen spoon full of honey, hand full of sultanas, one scoop of wheat germ with milk and a dark ass strong motha of a coffee.

    45 minute warm up ride to the gym.
    Stretch
    Squat (warm up) 2x10 @ 40kg then; 1x10 @ 60kg, [email protected] 80kg, [email protected] 90kg, [email protected], [email protected] 80kg, 1x 10 @ 60kg
    next
    Clean and press 3x5 @ 40kg
    then
    Snatch 3x5 @20kg
    then
    Roman Chair 3x15 (hands on head)/ super set with Leg press 3x25 @ 60kg
    followed by
    Calves 3x25 @40kg (seated)
    Dumbbell Deads Murray style 3x10 @ 15kg
    Not really a leg day as much as just a power lifting day. I'll do a real leg day in a little while.

    After I munched two tuna sandwiches. (32 gram can) Whole wheat toasted and smashed about 900mls of milk. My farts are poison already.
    Then I waited 1 hour and did 50 minutes of HIIT on the bike. It was really hard but it felt good.
    On the way home I passed some chump all decked out in lycra on a sweet road bike. I was rocking a bike I traded a case of beer for and blew past him while going uphill, it made me feel pretty good I guess.

    Today was my last contact day at Uni for the semester. Except for a few mondays that I must come back to campus for. I will be on prac at the hospital starting on Tuesday. I'll be there almost every day for three weeks. That means I'll be at the gym almost every day for three weeks.

    Same breakfast. Lunch was a massive pile of chickpeas with veggies and ground beef.

    Today I hit the free gym at the physio lab at Uni. I did a cycle session in preperation for my 200k bike ride in December. December is notoriously the hottest month in Australia so I expect to be riding into a hair dryer of 40+ heat. I rocked a towel on my head this time, next time I think I will wear a hoodie and a neck towel just to get the sweat up. Maybe I'll even plug in a hair dryer and blast it in my face for the entire session.

    I rode on the stationary (I've got a flat tire otherwise I would've been hitting the concrete) for

    85 minutes and I went 60 kilometers
    I burned an estimated 700 calories
    My average heart rate was 125 BPM with a max of 147.

    I started my ride session when the sun was setting so it was light enough in the room. However towards the end of my session it was a bit dark. Some guy came in and flicked on the lights and asked me if I prefered to train in the dark. I said no, I started when it was light outside but I didn't want to get off the bike. It was at this point I said "oh man, there's my water bottle" and took a huge gulp from it.

    Day 5 was a rest day. I don't think I did anything except work.
    Day 6 was good.

    I hit a 7 minute warm up on the row machine followed by HIIT rowing.

    2 minute intervals with 3minute rest.

    1x 2:00 500m/Average
    1x 1:58 500m/Av
    1x 1:55 500m/av
    1x 1:49 500m/av

    Followed by Bicycle abs 3x25 / weighted cable crunch 3x15/ cable rotations 3x15
    Roman chair 3x10 @ 10kg/ Obliques 3x10 each side

    This row session was really good. Kmonk and Chin, I reccommend the interval row training to tighten up the core and thicken the back.

    I lost weight yesterday I weighed in at 65 kilos.

    ^

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    I actually made a mental note to incorporate your rowing workout after reading your log yesterday- I didn't notice your instruction to do so until just now!
