  1. Bit of an odd week so far this week, training been few and far between Monday played the final league game of the season, won 3-1 and won the league, so a treble of trophies this season, happy with that TBH, most successful trophy haul since i was a kid and playing at the highest level i ever have. Got home afterwards and started getting bad stomach pains, ended up being awake half the night on the bog, was coming out both ends Worked from home Tuesday as a result cos i was shattered, so chilled out most of Tuesday and did a little bit cardio just to keep things ticking over, just 45 mins walking incline on the treadmill. Didnt wanna risk lifting in case i s**t myself Wednesday was on holiday from work, was a bloody lovely day, red hot. Took little one to the beach before she went to nursery. Hit a pull session in the afternoon Didnt train yesterday, left work a little late and decided to go and get a hair cut, and chill out in the garden for the night with it being so warm. Was uncomfortably warm at work all day probably why i was tired and couldn't be arsed to train last night Office is a bit cooler today, gonna head to the gym this afternoon en route home. Chilled out evening after that Got a little bit of a niggle in my right quad from all the football played lately, so held off with any leg work this week. Probably resume with some light stuff next week. Gonna go with PHUL style programming, think PHAT will be too much volume with being natty and cutting. Could be an option when i do an assisted bulk though. So for the foreseeable, will be 4 days lifting p/w with 2-3 cardio p/w
  2. Last game of the season tomorrow, a point is enough to win the league, meaning we've won 3 out of 4 competitions this season, losing the 4th in the final on pens. Looking forward to it finishing TBH, been a lot of football in a short time frame. Will be nice to get back into a proper routine of lifting and cardio again
  3. Cup final yesterday. Side we played went into it heavy favourites, having won the division above this season. We won 3-0, was hard graft, got 2 assists though. Was absolutely buzzing after. I had the little one last night so couldn't go out and celebrate with the lads afterwards, had a few cokes then left them to get smashed. When I left they were drinking Bells whiskey neat out of the cup Eating what I want today. Don't like the term cheat day but that's essentially what it is. Full English this morning, picked on at sweets this afternoon and ordering dominos for me and the missus tonight. Hoping I can blag her to watch the Spanish football rather than the new 50 shades of shite that she's wanting to watch. Plus side she'll be horny as f**k afterwards if we watch that Few pics from the yesterday's cup final win:
  4. Dont you train your back? Also, as someone who has been extremely overweight previously, id suggest revise the short aspect of the cut and make it longer. Idea being that you probably have more weight to lose than you think. To put it into perspective, ive been cutting for 16 months give or take (minus 2 month long diet breaks) - im still not where i want to be, and still cutting As for cal/macros - 500kcal deficit, Protein 1g/lb bodyweight, Fats 0.33-0.45g /lb bodyweight, rest carbs is a decent place to start
  5. Legs after football last night
  6. Still sleeping really well atm, getting around 7 hours a night unbroken sleep, happy with that, and feel so much better for it Penultimate game of the football season last night, local derby. Was fairly rough, so a few bruises but nowt serious. Won 7-1, i scored and got 5 assists . Final game of the season is Saturday, 2-30 KO in a Cup Final. Playing another strong side so will be tight Woke up this morning craving carbs, so had a bowl of cereal and a bagel lol Food today looks like: 60g Coco Pops / Whole Milk Bagel / 4 rashers bacon 250g 5% Mince / Mixed Leaf Salad / Mustard 50g Whey / Tin Tuna 175g Chicken Breast / Mixed Leaf Salad / 25g Mature Cheddar / Mustard / Dark Soy Sauce Gonna do some form of cardio tonight, probably some HIIT hill sprints. Havent got much time to play with and can get through them quick
  7. Thanks mate Yeah im natty and cutting on low cals atm, so the volume would likely be too much atm Been doing PPL Since around August/Sept last year, hence thinking of the change to non-linear periodisation , 4 day split PHUL may be better and is less volume than PHAT When lean enough, will be doing first cycle and bulking, so PHAT could be an option then
  8. As last time, will post regularly in here updating when i update my journal Slept well last night, the past 2 nights have been good sleep wise, need to try and keep it going, my shitty sleeping pattern has been an issue for too long now, really need to make the effort to get it sorted TBH Just ticking over this week while the football season draws to a close, can fully focus then on lifting and begin to incorporate legs back into my routine - have neglected them for a while now as they are constantly tired, cut, bruised from football, not to mention the tendinitis issues a while back. Low carbs today, diet looking like: 300g Fat free cottage cheese / 25g Whey / 1tbsp Olive Oil 150g Chicken Breast / 100g Mixed Leaf Salad / 20g Mustard / 25g Mature Cheddar 250g Cod Fillets / 100g Mixed Leaf Salad / 25g Mature Cheddar 250g 5% Lean Mince / 75g Broccoli / 20g Mustard 25g Whey / 1tbsp Peanut Butter / 1tbsp Olive Oil Currently using Protein Dynamix Whey 80, Vanilla Ice Cream flavour - bloody lovely, goes down a treat and is sweet as f**k, which helps when no/low carb Hope everyone is off to a good start
  9. Slept well last night, the past 2 nights have been good sleep wise, need to try and keep it going, my shitty sleeping pattern has been an issue for too long now, really need to make the effort to get it sorted TBH Still deciding between PHUL and PHAT - everything i read seems to point towards PHUL being preferred. @JAtkinson IIRC you were starting PHAT a few months back - What is your opinion on it / how you finding it?

  10. Breakfast usually consists of Eggs, Bacon, Turkey Bacon, Cottage Cheese or other cheese, Salmon, Steak, Whey, nothing exciting - im in the same boat mate, unless i have a shake which i drink en route to work, i eat at my desk so limited as to what i can have - eggs isnt ideal cos they stink the place out

  13. Few pics from the cup final
  14. So i had a nice relaxing weekend. Friday, had another cup final, won it 6-0, lol. Was a bit s**t to be winning a cup final so easily TBH, but my dad brought my little girl to watch me play for the first time ever (shes only 3) so was nice to get her on the pitch at the end and come and celebrate with us. She did wonder WTF was going on though Saturday just chilled out, same for sunday. Watched some of the football yesterday. Did a bit of weeding in the garden, not a lot. Most chilled weekend ive had in a long time TBH 2 midweek games this week, Tuesday and Thursday, then season finishes with another Cup Final on Saturday. Looking forward to it finishing TBH, can let me legs rest, blisters/cuts and bruises heal, and get back into a proper lifting routine again. Everything has been sort of off the cuff lately. Thinking PHUL or PHAT TBH, most likely PHUL with a 4 day split then do 2 cardio sessions p/w. Until i can get my programming back on track, and start PHUL, this week will look like: Monday - PUSH Tuesday - Football Wednesday - PULL Thursday - Football Friday - REST Saturday - Football Sunday - REST Calories sitting around the 1700 mark, carbs under 50g other than football days.
