thanks Arvid and captfit! it was nice to be properly sore again today


mike mentzer was a bodybuilder in the 80's and 90's and came up with his own training method. high intensity and low volume.......with an emphasis on recovery time. look up some of his stuff on utube or google its interesting! ive done it in the past and found it really good.


hope u guys have got better weather than me!


20mins bike morning and evening

it is good way of training, his books are on ebay for around a tenner usually, very interesting! theres some good vids on utube of him being interviewed by bill phillips......no pic as its a radio interview but still good.


sure some will pop up eventually! i got a powertec workbench rack system, with 180-190kg, an olympic bar, the rack has pull up bars on it, leg extension, ham curls, incline decline bench, some 35 kg dumbells, a few kettle bells, some bands, a sit up bench and a spinning bike lol
