i know how you feel with towel thing haha, i train at home so i can try all kinds of silly looking stuff!

how tall are you rossco?

squats and bench press are my fave exercises all weight trainers and bodybuilders seem to love benching !

good to see your doing chins, underated exercise, dont see many people doing them nowadays!


good luck with rest of the weeks training

Well im studying animal sciences and management at college so I get to use their gym for free, its full of personal trainer trainees and students and it is always busy.. There's a fairly decent freeweight section which is all I really need but there's only a few benches and just one power rack :/
Get a log going mannnn I'll be sure to follow it! And ahha I get that response from a friend that I train with, I've just always enjoyed them. When I first started training I could just about do 3 I'm currently up to 8 so its nice to see physical progress :)

Chins are great, all the tough exercises are usually the best ones.

For charity today at work everyone had to wear red so for once I wasn't wearing my baggy uniform, it was overwhelming how many people complimented my increased size haha including "how did you get big arms like that eating rabbit food" I took that as a compliment.

grip training today! deadlifting on monday and I want to nail a 110Kg, may switch to mix grip if I cant quite get it. anyone here use lifting belts? and how do they work?

Lifting belts help by increasing intra-abdominal pressure (restricting your belly so you can develop more force/power on the pull).
Compliments are always good aye, shows you are doing something right! Can you get a video of your 110 DL?
