June 1, I increased the level of my training program. I increased 4 kg (8.8 lbs) all exercises (except those which I couldn’t do 4 sets of 10 reps clean). Well do all of my sets with 6 repetitions.
Exercises I couldn’t do 4 sets of 10 repetitions clean, I kept the same weight and I do 5 sets of 6 reps to work well the techniques. For the rest, it’s 4 sets of 6 reps.
Squat and Romanian deadlift have a different periodization. Now I’m to 4 sets of 10 repetitions at 110 kg (242 lbs). I increased 2 repetitions.
34kg (74 lbs) for the dumbbells incline bench press, it changes many sensations, during 6 months I lifted the same weight. Every 2 months I added 2 reps, I was getting used to. What’s cool is that I can lift the weight alone, without help. 36kg (79 lbs) for dumbbells bench; 75kg (165 lbs) for one arm lat pulldown; 100kg (220 lbs) for one leg Leg Press; a dumbbell of 30kg (66 lbs) for the decline crunch and decline twist crunch .
I am happy with myself, I have prepared my body to be able to come there. What fun is that my training time is shorter and I feel I can do more but later in the day, I’m hits by a stronger fatigue than usual and there I told myself that I am trained. My body is being reorganized to adapt to this new training. I think I have to be careful with my sleeping hours to really recover.
Right now, I weigh 78kg (171 lbs) with a 8% bodyfat, I focus on my body symmetry, my body aesthetic. 2 last summers, I liked the walk without t-shirt in parks (show off, show off, show off) but this year I don’t want to do it. I want to improve my body as I do an update for a software. People tell me that my body is better than last summer but their compliments make me anything. I know my body can be better and I will.
It’s special now, the weather is fine, I wear T-shirt and when I hear people comment (wow, he is muscular, did you see his shoulders, etc.), it annoys me ! I’m a discret person, I have always been discreet. I’m not looking to have problems with someone, I do my stuff and I’m not talking. I had too many stories where jealous people broke my plans, that’s why I say nothing now.
When you work hard on a project, after a time you can’t hide because results are there and nobody can contest them, that’s what life is beautiful. I just need to get used to these comments and I simply ignores them. Knowing me, I’ll ignore them because the majority of people who say these comments have a worse physics than mine.
You want my advice, listen only people who are better than you in your domain. This is the only way to be better than yesterday and even become better than them. Being better than the person you admire, that’s motivation. Yeah, that’s what I want !
And you want ? Do you want to become better than people you admire ?
