Just work, and then resting up for the weekend. Ate the most ridiculously gigantic salad last night. I'm amazed I can get all that stuff down. Might break from the raw tomorrow night; some pints, and some fries. It's still pretty chilly here, so I'm craving hot food. What's your take on the weekend?

Saw your outdoor event post - which I think looks fun! Then again, I live in a concrete jungle, so I'm always down for some nature. I think I'll have some beers tonight as well - hey, you might already be well on your way. Have a good weekend buddy.

So before work on Saturday I was rushing around trying to get ready and found that I only really had 20 minutes or so to actually work out..
I decided to set a timer for 15 minutes and do as many, squats, pushups, aussie pull ups and calf raises as I could in this time.. It was soooo painful haha I completely lost count but each exercises must have gotten to 3 figures!

I trained properly yesterday, mostly a push workout with some aussies at the end because I love 'em!

Dips
X 15 reps
X 15 reps
X 12 reps
X 12 reps
Thinking I should get a belt to hang weights off of.

Push ups
X 15 reps
X 15 reps
Close grip
X 15 reps
X 15 reps
My triceps totally gave out at the end haha

Aussie pull ups
X 18 reps
X 18 reps
X 18 reps
X 19 reps (1 for luck) I was in agony through the last two sets!
My arms are still screaming today but I'm feeling like some garden deadlifts when I get home if the weather stays like it is.
I've loved this exclusive bodyweight training but now I think its time to add in some weights to the mix.
Will likely be;
Dips, push ups and bench press
Deadlift, overhead press, chin ups and aussie pull ups
Squats, calf raises and loads of different ab exercises

Wow, yesterday was incredible, such a hard days work on such a beautiful day. At work we had to make a new path again, which meant shovelling limestone into wheelbarrows and carting the wheelbarrows through a bloody forest haha, did this all morning which totally killed me.. But the weather was absolutely beautiful so after a hearty lunch and a long sit down when I got home I got my barbell out In the garden ;) photo attached.

Deadlifts
60Kg x 10 reps
60Kg x 10 reps
90Kg x 10 reps
90Kg x 10 reps
I was thinking of 6-10 rep range, where it was so light I went with 10 :)

Overhead press (barbell)
50Kg x 8 reps
50Kg x 8 reps
50Kg x 5 reps
A little disappointing, couldn't handle another set, I guess I haven't done them in so long so I have an excuse!

Finished up (because I was sore as hell) with barbell bicep curls to failure
20Kg x 15 reps
20Kg x 12 reps
20Kg x 8 reps

My back has super severe DOMS today baha

Had a look at that site, looks really good. May start doing a couple of those workouts at home on days when I'm not at the gym or training.

Chili looks solid mate. I could use a bit of hot food haha... Really though :psycho:

Training looks solid up there man, especially after a day full of carting shit around haha

Hope you're having a solid week mate
