Thanks, i find it easy if i keep the food the same everyday so its easier to type up, i know where i am with my macros and that i am getting enough or not too much.
The workouts i have to put them on here because it keeps me going to try and beat it next time.
I try and use this thread to keep me motivated in my goals and if it helps anyone else in anyway thats a bonus.

I have every single training session logged since 2003; aside from being a really useful point of reference to look back on (see what worked, what didn't etc), it's interesting to see how things unfold and evolve.

this is my first ever online journal, first ever thread to as i have never used a forum before, I have always kept a traditional pen/notepad journal which i still use now. I have loads knocking about of previous workouts but i have not been into the weightlifting as long as you.
Even though i have been going to the gym for about 15 years i never really had any real goals or even knew what i was doing until about a year ago when i had a few sessions with a Natural Bodybuilder and it changed the way i see the sport and my life really.
Cant get enough of it and wish i knew what i know now when i was 16 but i have no regrets and am happy with the path my life is going in.
I would love to compete onstage within a year that is my goal!

Cardio
Treadmill


20 Min High Intensity Interval Training
Consists of 4 cycles, increasing speed every minute then start again and on last loop go all out as fast as you can for 1 minute.

Start at Mph: 3.9
Fastest Mph: 8.9
Distance : 2.02 Miles

Awesome cardio session, at first I thought this is so tough then I focused on changing my mindset and kept going, at the end I thought I will go up again next time, even though when I finished the run I lay down on a mat for a minute I was that worn out.
Next cardio session go for 4.0 – 9.0.

Stretches:
Mainly for legs as my hamstrings felt tight.

Start: 10.20AM
Finish: 10.50PM
Total: 30mins

You're on the right tracks with the cardio Matt.

I am of the belief that the three most effective forms of cardio are LSD, HIIT and early morning fasted cardio. A rotation of two or more of those should lead to optimal fat loss and good aerobic conditioning.

I used to do early morning cardio on an empty stomach, mainly because I had to get up so early I didn't have time to eat before I ran.
At the moment I tend to eat an hour before I go running and I feel good doing that. I used to hate running until I discovered the high intensity interval run I do now, I enjoy changing the speed every minute and it's a great challenge and I always want to beat my last run.

If I go for a long run I tend to get bored quickly and struggle to focus so I stick with HiiT, whenever I for this run the weight just seems to drop off too.

Thanks Doug,

Never done a marathon myself but done quite a few charity 10KM runs and i love the feeling you get during and after knowing what you have achieved.
I love playing around with menu ideas and trying to come up with new ideas but at the moment i'm trying to keep it simple and the same everyday so i know where i'm up to with my calories/macros.
