Anyways a little update from me,
I'm training today', back biceps etc.

Rob, what did you think of my split a few posts back? Is that a good combination of exercises?

I've been doing loadsssss of gardening recently, growing tons of veg in the garden and even indoors haha will post my workout soon!



Hey Ross,

Done properly, BOTH HIT and HIIT are great for "cardio" :o , the main difference, is that HIT is "low force" high intensity exercise, whereas HIIT is "high force" high intensity exercise.

Yes, nice set up, kind of push/pull split of sorts, and to a degree, full body workouts:)

110Kg x 11 reps

Pull ups x 8 reps

Dumbbell rows
27.5Kg x 14 reps each arm

Shrugs
40Kg x 30 reps!

Barbell bicep curls
22.5Kg x 22 reps!!

Ab crunches, didn't film it, but is basically felt dead at the end ahha

Great HIT training, already looking forward to the next one!

Hey dude! And hey everyone! Just to let everyone know that I'm still knocking about haha, I haven't really trained or come on here for a chat for a while, I've got a shit load of stuff going on,
I recently had to go back to working at the supermarket I was at through college... Had no choice, needed a job to pay rent, I'm hoping it's just for summer.. Anyway it's a lot of hours and the spare time I have is spent sorting out my house and cat etc..
Anyways give me an add on Facebook (just search Ross Cosgrove) or Instagram rosscosgrove
If you wanna catch up for a chat or anything.
Il be back to training next week!!

crap man, I know how it goes, im going to have to start a low paying job soon since i havent been able to find another good one since I left my last one. Keep your head up and keep applying to stuff, dont get stuck in a rut and get content at the grocery store. On the plus side you can get in some lifting moving food around unloading shipments and stocking shelves.

Hey Michael!! And hey Chris!!

I've been a bit low energy recently, I've been doing 6am starts at work (which I love don't get me wrong) but with the recent hot weather I just can't go to sleep any earlier than usual.. Yesterday I suffered through the day with a migraine that was just relentless... I had intended to train at the start of the week but it just didn't happen :/
I, going to go all out tomorrow on a leg and chest day though! Also Chris I got your FB message will reply shortly!
Miss you all! Sorry for my lack of posting, I just need to sort my shit out haha :)
