Absolutely mate, heavy rest pause training works well with calf training, as do static holds (though the first few times i did super heavy statics on calfs, they went into a series of cramps that lasted all night, wasn't pleasant man). If calf's are a stubborn muscle for ya, its probably best to train them first in the workout, it shouldn't effect your thigh training.

Sorry forgot to mention, yeah seen those bands were coming here, not a massive fan, though, i do like roots and bullet the blue sky, top tunes:)

ugh cramps the worst isnt it! i used to get that all the time on ham string curls, the second i went over 25kg i would get the worst cramp ever had to stop doing it in the end, deep leg press seems to do the trick for them enough now though! roots is a amazing tune! soulflys new one 'bloodshed' is good too :D and who can forget ratamahata, classic metal :D

Am in the same boat mate, need to clean up my diet aswell. That all looks good, are you going to be eating that water with a knife and folk lol (sorry, just joking:). Something that i'll started use this last few months in hemp seed oil, its in a black wine style bottle at Tesco's, called The Good Oil, its 25 times more omega 3 than olive oil. Tasty too:)

Looks like a pretty good setup man. This is pretty much what I've been eating regularly for the past couple months. I feel amazing all the time, and, I've noticed that pretty much any time I add in processed foods (seitan, tofu, junk, chocolate, and, sadly, beer) I feel absolutely terrible for at least a day or two therafter. It just really shows you how sensitive you can become after eating so pure for a while.

yeh mate it does make a huge difference to how you feel when you eat clean.........ive slipped a little lately, still stayed vegan but been eating a bit too much crap if iam honest..........back on the clean stuff now though. this is alot less carbs than iam used to but as i only train for 15-20 mins a week i feel i dont need so much, so we shall see what happens :D definitely no beers either havent had any since i had a hangover in october :lol:

HIT upper body this morning, increased my pec dec by 10kg to bring my reps down a bit still got 19, so thats more reps with more weight than 2 weeks ago 8) can only increase once more and the machine is maxed. did more weight and reps on the upright seated row machine too. one bad thing about HIT is that i feel so sick after it i cant eat for a little while after the gym, but i guess it doesnt matter as im making progress. weighed in at 94 kg today.

Great progress mate, good stuff:)

If your close to maxing out equipment such as a pec deck, slow your rep cadence down, reduce it to a 2-4 second positive, 2 second hold in the contracted position, then a 4 second negative.

Or

(John Martini had me do this one) Use you normal rep cadence, however on every 2nd or 3rd rep, perform a superslow negative, changes everything:)

Yes mate, you could use J-rep reps or 1 1/4 reps, that why you'd be achieving more contractions per unit of time (as well as solving the issue that many Hitters come across...ie lack of resistance:) But hold off on that until you've no where else to go, when the progress train is in motion, don't through anything on the tracks.

Oh the DOMS are good aren't they lol, that's one draw back from training your muscles so infrequently, longer recovery times permits for a greater level of performance, which in turn results in a deeper level of fatigue, but that's a trade off i'd rather have.

Have a great week mate:)
