Mass machine cardio 6.66 very low compared to usual I let the fact I couldn’t pull down the cable for pushdowns effect me i got mad but i didn’t use it to my potential by converting the anger into power 7/10 today, but keep on keeping on and look forward i cannot control what has gone on, its gone and got to keep pushing!!

Seated Rows 110/6 110/6

Bent over rows 50/6 50/6

Weighted hyper ext 25/6

Good mornings 50/6 50/6



Mass machine cardio 7.20 i nearly beat it!!



It was a great workout but i feel i have jumped too heavy on some exercises so i decied to lower by 5-10 lbs on some so i now i am really attacking the muscle and not just moving th weight from point A to Point B.





Today was Chest and Abs



Barbell Bench Press 40/6 35/6 35/6

Incline DB Press 30/6 30/6

Dips -/6 -/6

Mass machine cardio i beat it 7.25 i was so focussed on beating it and i did by 0.01, next week is schedules week off from the gym so will relax and give my body a much needed rest, and ready for the last 4 weeks of training, in the past i never took days off from the gym let alone a week off but now i understand how important and how it can have such a positive impact on my training & lifestyle.



I can make a refreshed push to the finish of this challenge , got to keep on keeping on!!

Great progression! Especially in only a few months. Looks like you lost only fat and really hardly no muscle at all, if any.
Good job, you look great.

So first day back in the gym after a week off, i felt refreshed revitalised and ready to hit this Mo’ Fo’ hard!!



Today was Chest & triceps



Barbell bench Press 35/4 30/4

I seemed to struggle on these so next week sticking with 30 on the bar

Incline bench press 20/4 15/4

Same again like the barbell bench press will start on 15 next week

Incline DB press 27.5/8

I will go up next week to 30

Cable press down 55/6 55/6

Lying triceps 20/8 20/8

For these I had been using a pre weighted bar but the gaps 10lbs per bar it seems too much so used z-bar and 10 either side will go up by 5 next week



Mass machine cardio distance 7.18 my all time highest is 7.25 so i did great i just kept repeating YOU ARE STRONG, AWESOME AND POWERFUL great effort.



Also weighed in at 142.6 pre workout i was 147 2 weeks ago, so happy i do not feel weak i feel super strong! My food changes for this week are



Pre and post workout have stayed the same ½ banana and 1/3 cup oats and 1 serve of nitrofusion vegan protein.



Meals 3 & 4 are now 100g spinach, 100g cucumbers, 75g tomatoes, 1 block of tofu 85g, 1/8 avocado,1 teaspoon of balsamic and 50g of sweet potato, so reduced the potato and added more greens and veg.



Meal 5 is one serve of nitro fusion vegan protein and 250mls of unsweetened almond milk.



Meal 6 is 250g Broccoli and 100g of green beans and i block of 85g tofu.

I can honestly say i love my veg and with a squeeze o0f lime and Mrs Dash Chipotle seasoning tastes wonderful!!



I am at calories Protein Carbs Fats now, last four weeks so will probably change something next week probably oats down to ¼ cup pre and post workout.
