Not sure if this counts for cardio but I totally rinsed my drumset for a solid 2 hours which was awesome!
Forgot to mention but me and my girlfriend have been together 5 years now so we went out for a picnic at one of the highest points on the isle of wight it was beautiful! She also made me vegan pizza and raspberry muffins, I'll try and get the recipe because they were effing gorgeous!

Don't let the DL's disappont you, looks like you got a solid double wiith 140kg and that's some decent weight coming off the floor. Maybe you should have tried 150kg for your last pull?

Nail that beast next time!

Finally back to squatting with some weight, I'm keeping it low though, super deload down to 50Kg

Squats
50Kg x 5 reps
50Kg x 5 reps
50Kg x 5 reps
50Kg x 5 reps
Just 4 sets for now

Bench press
65Kg x 5 reps
65Kg x 5 reps
65Kg x 5 reps
65Kg x 5 reps
65Kg x 5 reps

Shrugs
40Kg x 12 reps
50Kg x 12 reps
60Kg x 12 reps
70Kg x 10 reps
Drop set to 40Kg x 12 reps

My urge to get back into martial arts and fighting fitness is getting ridiculous, I'm possibly joining a MMA class next month but I may just rejoin taekwondo. I'll won't adjust my training too much though :)

Strong work on the OHP. That's my worst lift of all the compounds, max is 40kg even when I was 10kg heavier than I am now.
