I hear you on the lagged posting. I'm lagging myself. Been super busy at work, so haven't been able to take the time after my workouts to post, and by the time I get home at night I don't even think about it. That's how it goes with forums though, after a while most everyone gets tired of it and stops posting.

Yeahhh I suppose I just don't feel like making the effort now ahha, but its not just that it also feels like the forum just isn't the same anymore.. Hard to explain but it is something I noticed.
Anyways, I don't plan on leaving the site just yet so I'll keep on logging :)

Keep posting Ross, damnit !!

I know that I haven't been on much lately, busy trying to sort out the details of a new business and I just have had to put the forum a little on the back burner because of that. I've also noticed that people aren't posting as much, especially as a few months back this place was going nuts. Weird.

Yep, keep posting. I'm new here, and don't post much, but yours is one of the journals that I do follow.

Peek a boo I am still reading your journal ;) How's it going man?
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

Would have done.. The usual venue for taekwondo is in use for some high school bullshit so there's no training this week..
So annoyed, so I threw together a little mix and match training session to cheer myself up and get off my ass!

Pull ups!
Wanted to hit 20 one way or another so
1st set-6 reps
2nd set-5 reps
3rd set-5 reps
4th set -4 reps
Total 20!
Next time I'll aim for 21 and so on.

Deadlifts!
100Kg x 6 reps
100Kg x 6 reps
Super easy
130Kg x 3 reps
130Kg x 3 reps
130Kg x 1 very slow and controlled rep

I used my weight plates as kettlebells (they have huge handles), thought it would make a nice change

10Kg plate
Circuit 1- 10 squats
10 front raise swings
Circuit 2- 10 squats
10 front raise swings (each arm this time)
10 bicep curls
Circuit 3- 10 lunges (each leg)
10 front raise swings (each arm)
10 bicep curls
Last circuit- 20 squats
10 front raises (each arm)
15 bicep curls
Ouch!!!!!!
Pasta, green beans and Linda MCcartney sausages for post workout.

Thanks for changing the name of my log MF.. Hahaha

So loads of things going on for me right now! I had an interview with an eco charity called the footprint trust which I will hopefully be working for in a few weeks time :D I do have to study for it though so I've been too occupied to train really. I'm also going on holiday sunday/monday for a week but its at centerparcs which means I'll be cycling, swimming and running everyday, it'll do me some good to actually do cardio for once ;)
Will keep everyone updated with how the job goes! :)

Lol at the name change, was wondering if it would get a rise out of you!
Good luck on the job, sounds like an awesome one mate. You deserve it, perfect for it!

Thanks dude :) they just need me to write a little essay redo my cv with my experience on it and learn 20 latin names for plants..
I don't get paid until I do 6 weeks or so of volunteering and training with them but the works awesome. I'll be attending events and giving advice on energy saving, working with 'green gym' and 'green army' which means I'll be out in the woods ;) plus I get to work from home certain days making leaflets and training with a local forest ranger! Dream job!
