How has your training been going? The snow must be melted by now right? Have you been back in action?

Yeap, I've had an illness followed by a concussion which didn't help. I'm not sure what to do right now but I'm going to stick with the 5x5 workout.

Getting strong bit by bit but not really building much muscle or loosing as much fat as I would like (I'm not fat but my stomach always hangs around removing any definition I may have)

Well it's been fun :P

Had injury after injury and then a little lung issue... Seems whenever I get on track something comes to throw me off :P

Well spending the next few weeks doing more running than lifting.. Oh I'll be lifting I just need some more endurance for my sport as I've been a bit "out of it" as of late.

Very cool, interested to see how you get on. How come you have decided to run more?

Endurance really. I do Wing Chun and Kendo, despite the muscle fatigue (why I don't want BIG arms as it can make your arms more tired in Kendo) it's a very cardio based sport. Lots of long duration fights. Think of it like a HIIT exercise. Fight one guy in a sword fight, move on directly to the next one. By the last few guys I'm so tired my forms totally off.

When it comes to the body, right now I would rather bit "fit" and "tight" than big ;)

Here's an example of one of the forms of training we do. You end up doing this fast, while shouting and MORE THAN ONCE

I've soo been neglecting this.. Just been really busy and I have a mind that can only store a handful of things in it.. Anyway, I got a white cane for walking, should help me not fall over in the street and hurt myself so much.. Also I swap my routine around every few months to keep myself interested in what I'm doing. Here is what I'm currently doing

Add on Wing Chun and Kendo classes that's a lot of activity. I had to give up riding a bike for the reasons at the top of this post.
Eating wise, I cracked how to cook shallow fried Tofu though I still prefer Tempeh.. Though I usually drink vegetable/fruit juice for one day, eat normally the next day..

Currently 6 foot, 178 lbs and since it's summer in the UK I'm sweating like a pig.
