Also that food looks nuts (excuse the pun) give us the recipe? ;)

Yeah, the SunWarrior stuff is REALLY good mat, you should give it a go! Can you buy it there in the UK or would you need to order it online?

I don't have the recipe for that one unfortunately, it's my favourite dish from a local vegan restaurant I eat at. Delicious! How was your weekend?

I would have to get it online but I currently get all my powders online anyway (: weekend was alright mannn been looking forward to getting cycle 2 underway!
And nice arm work :p

Cheers guys!

Just entered a push/pull meet on 15th Feb, will be an opportunity to test out my numbers see where I'm at. I'm not going to rest up for it as I haven't even really started any proper training yet, will just rock on up and see what happens. Should be good though. YEAH BUDDY !!!!!!

Yeah, bit of a late decision to enter aye. I'm just gonna rock up and see what I have in me, I don't expect too much as I'm only at a base level right now. Might have a 180 DL and a little over a 100 bench in me. Pulled 175 last night and it felt okay.

Good luck man
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

I'm guessing this is a bit of push and pull training for the comp? Looking good! Are they doing weight classes? Because if they are you will well and trulydestroy everyone!! Ahha :) heavy stuff you're listening to there dude :p

Aparrently it's an open meet but I think they use Wilk as well which is a good thing. I'm really into the metal for the training right now, I go through phases. I have it heavy at the gym then I often listen to Stevie Ray or some blues on the drive home lol :D

What you getting up to this weekend mate?

Last night was another great session, followed Wednesday's workout up with a really strong leg & chest session (floor benches & box squats with bands).

Final sets were floor bench 176 x 4 and box squats 242 x 6 with the purple 1 kilo bands adding extra resistance. I set them up like this:

Will type it up later this arvo.
