Hey mate,

Well I took 8 weeks of little training while I had a half sleeve tattoo done. Now right back into it.

After the eight weeks I can't say I've noticed much of a drop in strength which is good.

Presently into a 5x5 program every second day and trying to increase my yoga, Kum Nye and Calisthenics.

Also occassionally heading down to a Nastix (nastix.weebly.com) class every now and again. Those silks are tough work!

I have been meaning to post my workout logs here so will get back into that next training session. Meanwhile I've gotta go eat again!

Kum Nye? Haven't heard of that.

Retaining your strength after an 8wk layoff is pretty good, for me it's about 2wks then it's downhill after that unfortunately.

kum nye is a tibetan practice, similar to yoga, i picked up a routine from a book called 'waking up for beginners' and found it to be an excellent daily practice. These days howevee i do tend to neglect it as I spend a lot of time and energy between yoga, gym, work and play.

I have been really happy with my muscle memory, and also think I will try from my next gym visit to keep a live workout log here instead of in my notebook. I do wish tapatalk worked well for my phone though.

Hey bro, thanks for checking up on me :D

Yeah I am still around and still training in various forms. I have actually almost two weeks ago moved from Auckland to Melbourne, Australia, which meant I cancelled the gym membership and until I get a job will stay away from paying for the luxury of a gym. I had also been getting to Silk classes ocassionally which was great, and are super upper body and core workouts. Aside from that I had been stuck with masses of work plus lots of music related business, I think I averaged 5 hours sleep for about 6 weeks for a while. The timing of the move and subsequent break from trainings was actually pretty good as I'm pretty sure I cracked a rib a week before leaving, the morning of this performance (I come in at 3:40 - my 15 seconds of fame - and looking quite skinny here actually...):

http://tvnz.co.nz/good-morning/extra-071112-plum-video-5201566

The rib injury meant my usual pullups and all upper body work-outs were out of the question until recently, but now I have however been cycling a lot, running, and working on my calisthenics. I also discovered a local set of free bouldering walls, and am planning setting up a climbing rope and pull up bar in a park at the end of my street.
Also decided to join the Tough Mudder this summer so am very motivated to train for that.

Today I jumped into a two hour Parkour class (there are actually structured outdoor training sessions here, cheap and with a good crew), and am planing a bunch of calisthenics for the evening. Just finished off a mean power packed green/banana/berry smoothie.

Some example weights from my last couple of gym sessions almost a month ago now:
Deadlift (80kg, mechanical machine - Jetts gym) - 5-5-5-5-6
Curl (25kg BB) - 16-7-4
Squat (smith) 62.5kg - 5x5

\m/

How is life living in Melbourne going? I have fam out there just outside of the city in Launching. I visited there and Auckland last year, loved both places but in different ways. Still keeping up on your workouts?
