Just got notification today that I placed 3rd overall out of 16 lifters with a Wilks score of 232.1 for the push/pull meet last month.


Nicely done!

Thanks Cown, how are you btw? Hope you are having a better weekend than me.

I got gastroenteritis early Friday morning. Spent Friday throwing up and today I have stupidly bad diarrhoea, no kidding I have been to the toilet 30+ times in the last few hours.

Lost a little over 7lb yesterday, likely to be another couple of pounds today. Feel like all my hard work in the gym has been for nothing at the moment, I'm nearly down to the next weight class ?! :(

Thanks Ross, down 13lb now which is huge. Might even be bad enough to take me out for the rest of this year.

ouch dude, that doesn't sound good. How can you lose that much weight in such a short time? A lot of it has to be water weight, right?

I hope you get back to good health soon!

I doubt this is going to kill your year for lifting. Built up strength and muscle fiber shouldn't deteriorate that quickly, and you're a pretty strong dude.

Bypassing the part where you shared just a little too much.. = P
It sounds like you had an awful weekend...Any idea what caused it? Everything always seems worse when it's happening. This will be a set back for you, with losing 13lbs n all, but it won't take you out for the season. You train like a beast. You'll get it back :wink:

Thanks guys. Sorry, I fully admit that I was a little down after the sickness.

Good news is after a day and a half of eating I'm somehow back up to 141lb. Off to the gym now for an easy session, will quickly write up Friday's session now. Cheers MF.

Oh well, here's the vid from last week and it might be the last for a while until I get back on track lol...



Obviously I won't be doing the April meet anymore, but after an easier few weeks I'm sure I will be raring to go again :)
