Don't you hate when that happens????
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

Ello jim all good except I managed to roll my ankle yesterday playing footy in the sunshine.. I figuired it would be unwise to proceed with my heavy squat day and just rest it up until max testing. How are you man? I'll pop by your training log shortly, I haven't been very active on the forum recently

Shit man, that's no good. Rest up, maybe get some ice on it and do that a few times a day until it starts to come right.

Drunken update from me:
Ankle is feeling fine today! Went to a HxC/metal gig tonight, lots of great bands as well as some drama and my friend smashing the mirror in the toilets... But still a great night! Benching and ohping tomorrow and its my last heavy workout of this cycle.
I'm considering going for hypertrophy training now though but ill see how I feel about the whole thing after I've tested all my maxes! Hope everyones doing well, will speak to everyone tomorrow!
Peace out!

Ankle gave me hell at work today and its put me in a bit of a slump.. I'll continue to deload next week and since I've missed bench ohps and squats I'll throw in some extra reps for good meausre but keep it on deload weight.
Still testing my maxes the week after and I'll try and film them all too. I may not be too active on the forum until then, I just need some xbox and beer therapy to cheer myself up. Hope everyones doing well and I'll be back soon
