Haha, thank you!
I'm from the southern part of Australia, we don't get enough sun to get much of a tan. My Polish background probably doesn't help either :D


I have been feeling a lot better over the last few days, I'm just getting tired a lot quicker.
Have had a couple of decent sessions in the last few days.
I haven't been to the club in a while, at this stage training on my own is the best way for me.

I haven't been keeping my journal updated recently but here are my last few workouts
Speed bench press - Bar x 12
40kg x 6
80kg + 2 minibands x 3 x 6 sets
100kg + bands x 2
110kg + bands x 1
Dumbell bench - 37.5kg x 5 x 5 sets
Hang cleans - 70kg x 3 x 5 sets
Bentover lateral raise - 15kg x 8 x 3 sets
Dumbell curls - 18kg x 6 x 4 sets
Dumbell skullcrushers - 20kg x 10 x 6 sets

Squats - Bar x 15
60kg x 6
100kg x 3
140kg x 3
160kg x 1
170kg x 1 - Didn't feel too bad going that heavy
Glute/ham raises - 5 x 5 sets
Hyperextensions - 2 x 16kg kettlebells x 8 x 3 sets
Bentover rows - 100kg x 6 x 4 sets
Trunk twists - 10 x 3 sets
Barbell calf raises - 70kg x 12 x 3 sets

Bench press - 40kg x 8
80kg x 3
100kg x 3
110kg x 1
125kg x 1
Floor press - 90kg x 5 x 3 sets
Military press - 70kg x 6 x 3 sets
Throat crushers - 60kg x 6 x 3 sets
Skullcrushers - 45kg x 6 x 3 sets
Barbell curls - 45kg x 6 x 3 sets

Diet has been much the same, only had a small refeed over the weekend, just sticking to tempeh, sprouts and broccoli for the most part at the moment.

I know what you mean I'm Italian and Polish so I burn the first then tan later. Glad you mostly feeling better. The diet looks real clean.

Thank you everyone :oops:

I seem to keep getting behind on updating my workouts, I haven't lifted weights for a couple of days and have just been doing a fair bit of aerobic work. Four days a week of weights is about as much as I can handle at the moment, I seem to be pulling up very sore after each workout.
My last session was a lighter leg and back workout.

Box squats - 60kg x 6
80kg x 3
110kg x 2 x 8 sets
150kg x 1
Kneeling squats - 110kg x 5 x 5 sets
Sumo deadlifts - 110kg x 5 x 3 sets
Pullups - 6 x 6 - Did one pretty poor muscleup - I'll get there again one day...
Trunk twists - 10 x 3 sets
Barbell calf raise - 70kg x 12 x 3 sets

My diet has been going well although this week I feel like my condition hasn't improved as much as I would have liked. I'm having a small refeed this weekend and hopefully that will help get the metabolism going again. I'm looking forward to having a couple of Clif bars which I got when my Vega order finally came yesterday :)

Meal 1 - Nitrofusion, soaked walnuts (I soak them overnight and them add crystal salt to them) - mixed into a custard consistency.
Meal 2 - Seaweed salad with tempeh and avocado
Meal 3 - Vega shake
Meal 4 - Tempeh, spinach, macadamia oil
Meal 5 - Same as meal 1
Had one less meal because I wasn't lifting weights, wasn't all that hungry anyway.

Are the walnuts good like that? I've never tried anything like that. Interesting concept.

Yeah I love them. I generally buy some which have been dehydrated too but figured if I just soak them and add the salt they taste much the same.

80kg x 4
100kg x 3
120kg x 3
130kg x 1
Incline bench - 90kg x 5 x 3 sets
Military press - 70kg x 3 x 5 sets
Throatcrushers - 60kg x 5 x 3 sets
Barbell curls - 45kg x 6 x 3 sets

I've never tried the blueberry one before, just the peanut butter one which is nice.

Trained legs and back yesterday, I tried to go for a max on the deadlift.

Deadlifts - 60kg x 8
100kg x 3
140kg x 3
180kg x 1
180kg x 1 - Did a second single because I didn't lock out the first properly.
Lunges - 80kg x 5 x 5 sets
Bentover rows on box - 80kg x 6 x 4 sets
Close grip chinups - 6 x 4 sets
Trunk twists - 10 x 3 sets
One leg calf raises - 10kg x 12 x 5 sets

Diet is still going ok, I'm going to have one more small refeed over the weekend and then get back to the depletion type of diet for the show. I'm not going to carb up or anything before the show next week because I have a few shows in a row and want to peak for the one on the 10th October.

Meal 1 - Protein cookie (Have taken out the chocolate coconut butter to lower calories, just using Sunwarrior, flax meal, almond butter and walnuts - doesn't bind very well)
Meal 2 - Tofu, broccoli, olive oil
Meal 3 - Seaweed salad with tempeh and avocado
Meal 4 - Vega shake
Meal 5 - Aminos, creatine, carnitine, espresso
Meal 6 - Sunwarrior and walnuts mixed into custard
Meal 7 - Tofu, broccoli, avocado
