Haha, Thanks man!! It's been tough and I've had to deload and work on my form alot, but it all pays off :)

Oh, and it shouldn't say "OHPs were easy", that's just me not paying attention when I copy pasted it :D In fact OHPs were brutal today.

I'm studying Nordic literature :) A wee break have been nice indeed, although I've been itching to go work out all week :D

Todays workout was a disaster.. Everything just felt unbelievably heavy and form was out the window.. Must be the last couple of days lack of sleep that's playing with me. Our Apartment block is undergoing some reconstruction, so there's a constant run of people at every hour of the day, which makes it impossible for me to sleep later than 5 o'clock :x

Haha! I've kinda been slacking :lol: A friend of mine invited me to go with him to Berlin for a week all expenses paid, so I really couldn't say no to that :wink: I have however been skating every day for 6 days. I Unfortunately trashed my right leg really bad yesterday failing a gap, so I'm gonna approach squats with a bit of caution tomorrow. It doesn't really hurt when i body squat, but that can change pretty fast when you add a bunch of weight to it.
