Hahaha glad you liked it! Went to the cinema as charlottes (my girlfriends) brother works there and helps host quiz nights, they were doing a hobbit themed quiz so we dressed up :p one of the teams playing was called "2 dwarves one challice" hope you get that hahahaha

Asparagus. That's a pretty good idea man thanks, next time I get stuck at home I'll give it a try, I really need to invest in a decent set up, but its gonna set me back at least 300 quid and I'm a poor student baha

New years resolution: stop being a pussy, follow a decent training programme and stick to it. Start buying decent equipment bit by bit each month to train effectively at home, start implementing a bit of cardio after my workouts.

So I've got one more week at college until christmas/new year break which means I have one more week at the gym until january. I've calculated the percentages of my current maxes and written out what I need to do for the first four weeks. I'm following jim wendlers 5/31, and I'm stoked! Shout out to mini forklift for the ebook and for all the inspiration for the past few months :)

Anytime mate, always happy to help out in any way I can. Never be afraid to ask me for anything... whether it's advice, $$$, you want a new training programme setup etc etc. No worries at all :D

Hey mate, if you ever get more interested in the powerlifting side of things you should check out some of these podcasts:

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/vegas-power-hour

There's some really good episodes on that show, can highly recommend you downloading a few. You learn a lot from listening to them :)

I can't be arsed with spreadsheets, I've always used pen and paper. That way you always have everything when you need it and nothing can go wrong.
