Just went in for a quick train tonight as the wife has gone out with a friend to the casino.

Did some good strong deficit DL's using the 15kg plates; just on my 'medium' week so I worked up to 4PPS for 6 easy reps with just my belt (no chalk or straps). Pretty confident I could knock out at a triple with 5PPS now, which considering I'm still over a week away from starting my prep I'm quite happy with that.

Quiet weekend following on from the wifes' dress-up 40th Birthday party last Saturday night (wife was a sexy Red Riding Hood mmmm, that's her in the pic below with our youngest daughter). Check out this photo collection I secretly spent a few weeks putting together, that was a pretty cool surprise I sprung on her and a nightmare trying to get enough photos and then get them to fit in the frame!..

Image

I'll probably train either tomorrow or Sunday depending on what's happening with the family, I'm stoked with how well my training is going at the moment. Hope it continues :)

un related to training, but how sweet you did that for your wife for her 40th (my ex hub got so plastered on my 40th--I didn't get a gift let alone a photo collage---there is a reason he is the ex- and turned 51 two days ago..ptooey)! restores faith in good men being out there--I knew there was something cool about you...separate that you were a runner first! Is the wife vegan/ vegetarian as well? kids?
glad training is kick ass for you

Thanks Diva, you are too kind !! No, I'm the only vege in our household although my girls really aren't into meat very much at all. We'll let them make their own decision about that when they are old enough and feel ready to make the choice themselves.

Good session this morning, arms got so pumped I couldn't even fully contract them. Will post a photo up in a couple of hours when I type it up, happy with where things are at right now

... and after the gym I did some work in the garden and round the back of our house.

We had a shit load of ivy that had grown all the way up our fence, round the sides of our shed and even on the roof of it (you can see on the fence where it's actually grown up against it and stuck to the wood). I pulled the whole lot out which took me about 40mins, then I mowed the lawns so all up it was a good hours worth of cardio haha :)

Had a shit sleep thanks to hayfever, decided to go to the gym at 4am rather than continue lying in bed. Did one set of squats and realised it would be a shit workout so ended up just doing some fasted cardio...


CARDIO
Treadmill
15mins @ 5.5kph/2.5 Incline



Will go back and train as soon as feel back to normal, quite flat right now.

Allergies are terrible...mine ruined my sleep earlier this week. Thankfully earlier this year I had the forsight to keep a box on hand, so with regular dosing I'm keeping it at bay. Kudos for going to the gym when allergies are acting up, though lol

Well it turns out I probably had a cold, not hayfever lol.

At least my nose has cleared today but I'm not quite at 100%. Will hit chest instead of legs next, as I think legs will take too much out of me and could hinder my recovery. Hoping to train at some point today, just not sure when.

I get pretty nasty hayfever allergic reactions too, so I feel your pain. Lifting with a cold is doable, but I'd be damn miserable trying to lift through allergies, so I just don't do it if it's one of those days. Good job giving it a try, though!
