PT session was good! As is ya website :)

Could/should have prepared more with the PT sessions but it is what it is. Have made some progress, arms are slightly bigger as are y calves, everything else the same pretty much. Have put on 2 kilos since October. Nothing insane, but I think this is going t really improve in the next 8 weeks!

Thursday 28th (light session with PT going over movements etc)

BB Bench Press 25 x 10, 25 x 10
30d Incline Fly 7 x 10, 7 x 10, 7 x 10
BB Skull Crusher 13 x 12, 13 x 12, 13 x 12
Assisted Dips 35 x 12, 35 x 12, 35 x 12

Next post will be a Feb Summary and March Goals!

JubNZ wrote:Feb Goals

1. Eat more food, weighted myself at the gym today.Weighted 64.5kg, lowest I've been in 7+ years at least. Want to get to 75kg by end of year, so not a good start there. Had a think and I simply do not think I am eating near enough calorie wise, I eat/drink a shit tonne of fruit and veg. But given I am actually hitting the gym 5/6 days a week now I am burning it all off and then some. Not going to count calories really, will see how I go tomorrow then use it as a basis for the rest of the month. I think if I add a bowl of rice/veges mid afternoon, apple/peanut butter mid morn and a extra protein shake that should help a bunch.

Pass. Overall ate more during the day, still need to another actual meal on most days rather than extra snacks (peanut butter ftw). Weighed in at 67.5kg which was a step in the right direction towards 75kg.


2. PLANK! Starting as a base of 1m 20 secs for base time of plank, improve plank time by 4 seconds each day. Don't think I need to get ready to achieve goals for size of arms, individual sizes yet. Its only been 6 weeks or so since I have been going regularly.

Fail. Never got any momentum, missed days early on and never recovered. Did get up to 2mins.


3. 22 Workouts. Unfortunately its not a leap year, but 1.5 days of a week should be all good!

Fail. 18 workouts. Need to cut down the 'oh I feel buggered' reason down. A - I need to sleep more. B - Once I warm up when feeling like this I am good to go. Although saying 4.5 workouts a week does not seem bad, a fails a fail.


March Goals:

So I am about to book a one way ticket to Chiang Mai, will be staying there for 6 weeks before heading to Canada (via Vegas, LA and hopefully up the West Coast)

Given that I leave on the 21st, and I do not know my plan for where I will be staying in Chiang Mai I will give March Part A 21 days.

Following on from last month,

1- Eat more, prepare a weeks worth of fried rice to take to work.
2 - 14 workouts, will be very busy saying goodbyes etc but hopefully can nail it!
Just do it.
