Food:
9 rice cakes
Kale + Sweetcorn + TVP + nutritional yeast flakes
1 protein shake
3 large raw carrots
2 soy yoghurts
4 crumpets

Drink:
Water

Training:
about 30 minutes on trampoline playing DMC3, yes
chin ups: 6
Lots of stuff with light weights

My abdomen is killing me. I don't know what it is. It hurts when I walk, I think I must have done it because of all the bouncing I've been doing on the trampoline recently, I haven't experienced this before, it is different to how I feel after doing too many crunches. Ow.

Did some filming on Saturday, it's going well, but I did something to my shoulder during a kick. Just lifted my arm up a bit, and suddenly had a lot of pain. Now my arm is sore and hurts to move, so I have to take a break from most exercise for the time being. BUM! But I will continue to try to eat healthy, and maybe get a bit of exercise

Don't sweat the injury Richard, it happens to the best of us :)

If it's just your upper body though, what about working your legs? Even if you can't do much I found that it does wonders for the mind to get moving during times of injury.

Why the high number of pushups/crunches?
I'm taking a break from the internet (for as much as possible)... Gone 'till november :)

I thought it was a good thing to do for definition. Let me know if there are better alternatives

Well definition is basically muscle mass + lowbodyfat, so it's probably more effective to do a reasonable number of reps (with added weight). Otherwise you're just training endurance (nothing wrong with that) but it will not increase definition.

That being said, I like to do a lot of pushups as well, just for fun. :D But I really hate crunches never do them (voluntarily) and I still got abs.

So do you think bench press would be more appropriate? I like doing crunches, I think they're cool. Yeah I also like the idea of raising endurance, and being able to do more push ups per set

For gaining mass benchpressing is def. better than pushups.

No harm in doing pushups after bench. Good to keep bodyweight strength.
Lifts:
250 Bench
445 Deadlift
335 Squat
