  1. tonight was Lateral raises 4 sets of 12 Dumbbell front raise 3 sets of 10 Landmine shoulder press 4 sets of 10 Barbell shrug 4 sets of 12 Triceps push down/ rope push down/ EZ bar lying triceps extensions Superset I managed 15/15/12 on the first set and 15/15/10 on the second set but as I was lowering the bar behind my head on the second set, the weight made my back arch and I felt a twinge so I stopped. I had thought that my back was now recovered but perhaps not quite yet.
  2. woke up late this morning and only had time for 20 min in on the cross trainer, which I found hard work. I will catch up after my resistance workout tonight
  3. If you will please forgive the bad joke, Sounds like things are finally on the up for you mate
  4. Tonight was Chin ups 4 sets of 6 Close grip Pull down 4 sets of 25 Barbell bent-over Row 3 sets of 8 Meadow Row 3 sets of 10 Cable Straight arm push down 2 sets of 15 Cable reverse Fly 2 sets of 15 EZ Bar preacher Curls 3 sets of 8, 1 set of 6 Dumbbell Concentration Curls 4 sets of 8
  5. Thanks mate
  6. I expected to suffer a little as I pushed myself for the first time on my new Glute Ham Develover but Holy cow! I didn't expect it to be my calves that hurt. I could hardly stand up straight this morning.
  7. Short little workout tonight Squats 4 sets of 10 and 1 set of 6 Sissy Squats 3 sets of 8 Glute Ham Raise 3 sets of 5
  8. Thats a whole 0.1lbs more than me. LOL Well both do better next week. I have been lifting mate, just nothing heavy that involves my back. So for example yesterday was; Wide grip Bench press 4 sets of 8 Dumbbell Incline Bench Press 4 sets of 6 Dumbbell Fly 3 sets of 10 Dumbbell Incline Fly 3 sets of 12 Kettlebell straight arm pull over 3 sets of 10 Cable triceps push down 3 sets of max reps in 60 seconds standing calve raise 6 sets of 20 I do 40 min cardio interval training every morning and again in the evenings when Im not lifting. But IMO nothing ramps your metabolism up like heavy squats and deadlifts and I just cant do them right now.
  9. It was quite a nice day today, in fact, so nice I went mad and cut the grass. Tonight's workout was Wide grip Bench press 4 sets of 8 Dumbbell Incline Bench Press 4 sets of 6 Dumbbell Fly 3 sets of 10 Dumbbell Incline Fly 3 sets of 12 Kettlebell straight arm pull over 3 sets of 10 Cable triceps push down 3 sets of max reps in 60 seconds standing calve raise 6 sets of 20
  10. My back is slowly getting better, thanks for asking mate. Its been over a month now so I have started very carefully introducing low weight exercises and testing it. Ive only taken squats back up to 100kg so far and I daren't even try a dead lift just yet.
  11. I know weight loss is not a linear thing but I'm disappointed with the weight in this week. I upped cardio last week so I shall drop calories this week and hope for a better week.
  12. Gentle little back workout tonight Chin ups 3 sets Bar Inverted Row 3 sets Hyperextensions 3 sets Cable curls 3 sets I then played with my glute Ham developer and discovered that if you lower the foot plate position it places less strain on your hamstrings I guess my arse is stronger than my hamstrings as tonight I managed 3 sets of 5 reps. I'm going to put the settings back as quite clearly my hamstrings need the work more than my glutes do.
  13. Dam that sounds tasty. If my next two weight ins go OK Im going to have that for a cheat meal. What a compliment! you must be feeling pretty good about now.
  14. one double cheeseburger is never enough
