Loss of strength is probably due to erratic training and being in India for 3 weeks (where I lost about a stone in weight). Plus I don't think I've been eating enough.

Training more regularly now though and I think starting to increase my strength again.

*My friends crazy stomach workout, which warms up with 120 crunches. Then you do 5 sit ups and in between each one hold halfway with your arms out to your sides for 10 seconds. You have to have a straight back and I am informed that you can't do this with a weak or injured back. First set I did 4 x 5, second set 2 x 5.

The bar really shot up today on the incline, but naturally the chest exercises afterwards weren't as strong.
