It was actually really funny, the bus company on the island is useless and everyone hates it and constantly berates it for being so shit lol! Will pop by your log soon matey, I'm interested to see how you're training for your run :)

Changed what I planned to do today because my back is a little beat up still, after this I'm taking a long weekend off training.

Bodyweight Squats (because of lower back)
X 15 reps
X 15 reps
X 15 reps
X 20 reps
X 20 reps

Ab Crunches
X 25 reps
+2.5Kg x 25 reps
+5Kg x 25 reps
+10Kg x 20 reps

Then some Mountain climbers + Tricep isolation + forearm work

That'll do, I need to rest up and eat up!
Been putting on a bit of belly fat which is a little offputting.. Been trying to ignore it as it really doesn't matter but.. Its the first time I've ever had a 'belly' haha

Your shoulders are looking totally nuts :D

I ordered some heavy duty squat stands and I'm looking into getting some more weight plates.
Whilst I'm 'cutting' which technically I am, I'm gonna lower my reps and increase weight, looking to increase strength and hit the 160Kg mark on my deadlifts!

I got them from amazon but they're originally from powerhouse fitness, they're estimated to be here by next monday so I'll start doing strength training again then.
I've been totally rinsing cardio the past few days and totally cut out shiity foods and reduced my calories, starting to make some progress with it. Tonight I did about half hour boxing training and did some bodyweight exercises, I'll give myself a few days break starting after thursday mornings cardio and totally hammer the powerlifting/strength training from monday morning!

Look forward to reading this journal from next week then !!

Are you going to start following a PL'ing program or you just gonna kind of do your own thing with the training for a while? Make sure you post up a pic of your new squat stands when they arrive :D

I was thinking of getting on stronglifts 5x5 but I'm not sure about squatting 3 times a week, plus I don't want to commit to a programme too much because I'll need time to do cardio, I'll give it a think :)
Will do man, I need to start uploading more photos in my journal
