looks good Rob how are you enjoying the training?, i must admit it some times feels nice to not go all out 1set to the death some times
dont mention salmon thats one thing i really miss
smoked salmon on toast.
Id been mulling over a few things in my head with regards to training to failure this last few months, that is, we know intense training is a must for stimulating growth, we know progressive overload is another factor, but training to failure has never been a requirement. Now, don't get me wrong, i still fully believe that there's only one best way to train, ie intense, brief and reasonable infrequently, but i'm beginning to believe training to failure may have been retarding my progress. This Pete Sisco article is what got me thinking http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/sisco2.htm
Am also now trying to avoid straining, once i can no longer accelerate the weight i terminate the set, i no longer want to reach the point were the weight comes to an almost grinding halt, its here blood pressure sky rockets.
Yes mate, decided to add in a bit of oily fish into my diet everyday, I've taken all the dairy out of my diet again (bar a very small amount of butter for to cook my eggs in), i could feel that shit clogging up my chest after only a few days.
All good with yourself mate:)
