training once or twice a week now, not bothering with arms now just chest shoulders and back, going quite well. Slowed my reps down alot which has made me drop the weight down alot also. really concentrating on the contractions.

neck is finally getting better thanks Rob, stopped doing side laterals with 2 hands and just do it one at a time now which seems to pinch my neck/traps less. Off up snowdon tomorrow on a path called "crib goch" its a scary path along a ridge but should be fun fun. Check it out on google :)

Good stuff Mike:)
Ever tried big Z lateral raises?
Watch how he performs them, bout a 3rd of the way into the video. Better for overloading the delts and shouldn't cause much discomfort.

Tried the big z laterals earlier after reading your post Rob. Thanks, they are good, i always involve my traps too much in laterals but its really good that way. Doesnt seem to affect my neck either......happy days.


Crib goch was f*ckin scary, it was quite windy so not much fun. Not sure if ill do that again its physically quite easy but its mentally hard being literally on the edge of 400ft cliffs, dont know how these proper mountaineers do it! Touching the void is an amazing book if you ever fancy something to read pal :)

Good stuff, can take a little getting used to.

400ft cliffs, nooooo way would ya get me doing that, if I did id probably need a spare set of draws lol. I check that book out, like that kinda thing, recently watched a good doc again about a cave explorer that got lost for 40+ days back in the early 80s, it was about how is body went into survival mode, absolutely amazing. Think its on youtube, its called the ultimate machine, the brain episode. Theres another story in the same episode of a rock climber who had a 400lb slab of rock land on him and how he pressed it off to survive.

Its one of the best books ive ever read, i couldnt put it down. I love books about climbing and everest and tales of survival, even though im a shitbag myself hahahaha.

I'll check out the doc you mention sounds good :) Going to try and get to ben nevis in scotland this year at some point, never been up that. Just hate driving far, car seats and me dont get on!

cheers Rob.

You're doing Ben Nevis?? That's awesome man! My dad did it back in his 20s (he's a Scotsman)
I never thought of doing anything like that but I can definitely see the appeal


Anyways, I'm really glad you and rob are still using this forum! Love chatting to you guys :)

Yo Ross, my mate has been up there he says it not a huge deal but would be cool. I been up most of the mountains around here and love it, theres some pretty cool hikes here in north wales if you or Rob are ever about this way it would be great to show you around. The cafe at the top of snowdon 3000+ ft up is a must if your in wales!

Ive been thinking of selling my motorbike and doing a trek to everest base camp over 12 days, thats 18,000 ft high so would be hard work i think but a good experience, just an idea at the min but i love hiking so would be cool to say ive been there.

Glad your back too pal, it wasnt the same without you!

Sounds the business man, if I ever decide to go to Wales id be up for it. Moure mountain's here arent too bad, its more distance. You should try to get sponsored for Everst, used to work with a guy that 18,000ft base camp, he just got people to sponsor him. Are you watching the new show on about the rescue helicopters at Everest? Havent seen it as yet but looks good.

chest today, training very slowly and with hard contractions. Has almost halved my weights which is good, feels good like your really working the muscle deeply. Its easy to focus the weight on to a particular part of the muscle also, reps are about 4 seconds each way.

Where did you go on holiday Mike??
I recently had a pretty awful stomach bug and the worst thing was not being able to get to the gym, you must have had withdrawals right? :p
