I started this Golden Six -stuff just little over a month ago. I’ve red from different forums that results are “visible” in about three months. If you train 3 times a week. But I think I’ve made some results already. Not so much that I’d take pics to show off, but enough to list my weights! They have improved, which is good!

  • Squats: 35kg -> 55kg (I do below parallel, before I didn’t, hence the small starting out weight)
  • Bench press: 35kg -> 42,5kg
  • Lat machine: 40kg -> 55kg
  • Overhead press: 15kg -> 27,5kg
  • Bicep curl: 12kg -> 21,5kg
  • Situps: 3 * 20 -> 4 * 17, 5kg

*Edit: It might be that the bar I use with biceps might not be 14kg, but 8kg. Have to check that one! 🙂

I bought some spinach today, I hope it will help my poor biceps to grow! Just like Arnold and Popye 😀

  1. Agreed, Arnold is the best!

  2. Have to say that good development! Hope that the progress is that good in the future too. Maybe it isn’t every month but keep going!

    • I’ll keep going, that’s for sure. Of course in some moves the progress will get slower (it already has, like bench press) but even 1kg more is still progress!

      • I have noticed that in my own training there is often a little dropping before it again rise to new level. It’s sometimes frustrating.
