I can't wait to get back on the lifting platform again.

People only see the end result, they see a number which is the total for your three lifts but they have no idea of the pain that you put yourself voluntarily through in order to get to you to that point. What is needed from you that is above the recreational gym goer? Well, you need to tap in to your soul ~ tap in to things that you keep hidden because of fear, the fear of hurting someone or yourself to get that next rep. To surpass the pain threshold in order to accomplish what you know you are truly capable of.

I hope some of you will join me for the ride MF.



Maybe I need to take a break from the gym AND from reading your journal haha This really made me want to go to the gym..

Last nights session was pretty brutal, watched some Jesse Marunde clips before I hit the gym. Did some Famers Walks, core work and then 5x5 for S/B/D.

Will type it up now 8)

Hey MF,
Just wanted to thank you for your support on the forum since the start of the year, when there are times when you might lose interest or need extra support it really helps when you give supportive comments on the forum.

Keep up the good work and keep posting your photos of all your food.

Mattpb

Thanks Matt.

Training has been going well and I am back in the groove now. Feeling a little wiped out still after the Sunday night session, but feeling a little sharper through my midsection than I was last week :?:

Well I had a great session last night, first lot of heavy DL's in any form since the end of February.

Last set I pulled a comfortable 352, which I was quite happy with as I'm still about 8-9lb down on my normal competition bodyweight (137 right now).
