It's been great training with you.

I think when Noah gets back we'll have another MVS sess.

Hahaha! Thank you Vegan Joe :D

Yeah Pat it will be good to get back to MVS again.

Had a session last night, for some reason I haven't had as much motivation this week. I think I'm due for a break from training as soon as my comps are up.
I've just got a couple more workouts for the week before I start tanning and stuff again.

Back and shoulders
Deadlifts - 60kg x 6
100kg x 3
140kg x 3
160kg x 1
180kg x 1 - Didn't feel too hard, I think I'm starting to get comfortable lifting this amount of weight. I should be able to go for a pb in a little while.
Reverse grip bentover row - 100kg x 6 x 4 sets
Rope climbs - 2 sets - I don't get to use these much because the rope is in the boxing area of the gym and there are always people hanging around in there. It's fun when I get to use it.
Dumbell presses - 35kg x 6 x 4 sets
Rollouts - 10 x 3 sets

Just a couple more upper body workouts for this week tonight and tomorrow.

Diet has been the same, I'll get rid of the salt by Friday and might try and carb up this time, depending on how I look and feel.

I'm pretty happy because I finally won a show!!
I placed first in the under 80kg category at the ANB Victorian championships yesterday.
It is a relief because I have been doing this for a while now and always seem to get second and third placings so I'm happy it all came together nicely on the day.
I'll have some more pics in the next few days, didn't have my camera with me so I have to wait for the official photos to come out.
I am thinking of doing the nationals in a couple of weeks, if I keep dieting I should get my legs more dialed in, as they are still not as lean as I would like them to be.
Today is going to be a leg and back session, my last leg session before next weeks' IFBB/NPFC show where Ronnie Coleman is guest posing - it should be interesting as I've never competed in that federation before.
