Left the UK when I was 19 mate, worked on QE2 cruise liner for 5yrs and have been in New Zealand for just over 10yrs. My family are all from the Midlands but I don't feel British anymore lol... I consider myself a kiwi.

Whereabouts are you from?

IOW is beautiful, love that place!

Just back from an early morning session, did a bit of light back and felt good. Deficit DL's were my main exercise - 5 sets and the last set was 330 x 6 done as single reps.

Two weeks until the meet and I'm feeling great! Morning weight is 141 so it's good not having to worry about making weight and/or dieting.

Rest day today and an easy training tomorrow, just anicillary moves + core work then I'm into my final heavy week where I'll test my maxes for the last time. This time next week I should be all done, ready and where I need to be.

Having a great weekend with my girls, off to the beach for some fun today!

Thanks mate, I'm banking on that! Really want to hit a solid 264 squat, if that happens I'd like to try for 275 at the meet. I'm not worried about the deadlifts and my bench should be okay assuming I have no issues with my 220 opener haha.

Man I have eaten like a horse today, but that's okay as I decided to have an extra rest day and train first thing in the morning instead of tonight.
Felt I needed to increase my protein intake over these last few weeks leading into the meet, have been playing with my protein shake and I've finally managed to get a 400ml shake that gives me:

Cals 420
Protein 75g
Carbs 20g
Total fats 1.5g

That should help things ?!

Oat milk, soy protein, chia seeds, 5g micronised creatine + 5g glutamine. Tastes good too, bonus.

If I were you I'd find out what class you need to compete in and then have a look online at past results. Always good to know what the others are lifting, gives you a baseline to aim for.
So what are some of your bucket list things, can you tell us?..
