Nice, I've got the beard at the moment but I got my hair cut to find a job. I may grow it again in the future. Maybe when I'm retired I can look like a wizard

My beard is making its return! Lol
I've been lucky enough that my last 4 jobs haven't cared about my long hair :D it's actually led to some side money on the weekend. My barber asked me to help at his food cart once in a while!

Also when I eventually finish school my life goal is to become a Philosophy instructor, and personally I think a Philosophy instructor has more "cred" with hippy hair. ;)

Definitely!

Haven't been to the gym recently. Was planning to do two more Stronglift sessions Friday and Sunday but I slipped on the stairs leading to our front door on thursday and fell down half a flight. Hurt my back, kinda sprained my wrist and twisted my ankle so I thought it best to rest it some.

I did manage to take advantage of the good weather and go skating outdoors yesterday.

I will probably return to lifting this week (a strong lifts BAB) but realise I've forgotten my gym shoes, so might not tonight!

18th February


Went to the Gym Before work!! I'm probably busy later so I got up with my fiance (who's on an early shift) walked her to work then went on to the gym. Didn't manage my full stronglifts routine but

•4x5 and 1x4 25kg Vertical Press. So Close!!! Might be able to do it if it wasn't first thing in the day. Stronglifts say drop down (so a week at 20kg) but I might give it one last go.
•3x5 35kg deadlifts. I might've been able to do hevier but my back is still hurting from my fall
•5x5 Assisted Dips with 60kg counter. My aim was 55kg but I did 1 set with it and i could feel my body really hurting so I wound it down slightly and went for just the 60kg.

Really pleased I went before work. Now to see how knackered I am at work!

Just as a note. Went skating around the business park on friday on my lunch proving that it is a feasible source of summer excercise. and Skated into town and up to bath road (about an hours skating in total) as a bit of exploration of town. Bloody awful pavements and my form sucked. A big of core workout maybe?

Starting my Nerdfitness challenge #3 today as a warrior (lifting and strengh focused rather than a ranger) and am already in my routine of a minimum of 10 attempted pressups a day (I still cant do full ones) and a (for now) a 20 sec plank.

Fell on my bum and wrist on Saturday while failing to navigate a dipp in a pavement, pain is slightly worrying, hopefully it wont get in the way of excercise.

24th Feb: Stronglifts A (also day 1 of my nerdfitness challenge)

Pressups: 2x10 1/3-1/2 way down
Plank: 20secs, 10 second side planks
Dumbrbell Press: 5x5 12kg in each hand. Will attempt 14kg next time
Barbell row: 25kg 5x5 May attempt 30kg next time but need to work on form
Squats: 3x10 20kg barbell. Gym was crazy-busy and squatrack was occupied all the time (though I cant pass judgement on their routine or method) so did lower weight highter rep. Better than nothing!
Assisted Pullup: 60kg counter weight (so about 30kg lift) 5/5/5/5/4! So close on this, really pushed myself on the last one. I swear, even with assist, you cant do pullups and not feel badass!

Right I'm back on it!

02.04.2014
5x5 Assisted Pull ups

alternating with

5x5 Assisted Dips

Both with 60kg counterweight


3x15 20kg overhead press

3x10 25kg (2x12.5kg dumbell) press.


These last two were experiements with lower weights and varying speeds, doing a1/3 warmups, 1/3 controlled 1/3 explosive speed. certainly got me into a sweat!)


Tried to go rowing (as i accidentally packed my flat soled shoes instead of running shoes) but my movement kept making the machine jump backwards a little with every cycle! I'm so bad*ss I can row a stationary rowing machine!



Couldve done more but it wasnt until afterwards I realised I'm really not feeling great. Not particularly ill, just not on form

Hahaha its funny what good shape people can get into when they are unemployed and have more time to workout, damn I remember some of the most cut ive ever been was during unemployment.
