Hope you're feeling better!

I had the same thing. Not full on flu, but I was sick for the past week. I don't like to admit it, but I guess it happens to all of us every now and then. I missed a couple of workouts, had some rough nights of sleep and in general, just didn't feel all that great. Today is my first day feeling pretty good. I was in the gym as well. :)

Hope you're back in action now too!

Thanks Robert! Yeah, I'm back feeling 100% again now, going in to bench later tonight. Luckily nobody else got sick and it was just me, my girls are their normal cheeky selves haha...

Thought I'd have a few last splash outs as well before I buy the business, had some diamond encrusted cufflinks made up and had them set in platinum. They look amazing, I'll post a photo up when they arrive.

Just on the hunt for a new laptop as well, so in a couple of weeks I'm quite looking forward to going shopping for that and some other stuff. Need a new camera too ~ as soon as I have that I'll start back with recording some of my training like I used to do. Will type up the session later MF.

Thanks guys. Back into it now after a couple of weeks of pretty much feeling like crap.

Didn't know how my strength would be but didn't seem like I've lost too much, now I just have to start building things back up.

Your girls look amazing! Can I ask, is your wife Asian? Mine is Indonesian so I am always interested in what the German/Indo combo might come out to be. :D

** Just from my layoff and getting back into things, I still feel like I need to retrain my neural pathways hence the higher reps. Normally for speed work I'd work within the single to triple rep range.

If we don't get back too late I'll head to the gym for some legs.
