    I had planned to train yesterday but it didn't happen! Tonight's workout, still easing myself back into training was just 6 sets of squats working my way up to 122 Kg. LOL the warm up and mobility exercises took longer than the lifting did.

    This morning I did 20 min on the cross trainer and 20 min stretching. No gym for me tonight.

    Todays little workout was; Face pulls 2 sets of 30 reps Bench Press 7 sets working up to 85 Kg at 10 reps Skull Crushers 2 sets of 10 reps Hammer curls 2 sets of 10 reps I'm planning to do some cardio on Monday and to lift again on Tuesday.

    My first day in the gym for 2 weeks so I took it easy. 15 min warm up on the bike and some mobility work then 7 sets of deadlifts building up to 170Kg for 8 reps. I seem to loose my fitness faster than I loose my strength as I was puffing after that.

    Thursday I did 40 min on the cross trainer and 20 min stretching. This morning I weighted in at 211.6 lbs so I'm happy that my diet is getting under control. I can see already that my new job is going to be time demanding so I am changing my training plans. I shall do a 4 day split for resistance work, working out Saturday, Sunday, and keeping Monday and Friday as rest days that gives me flexibility, I could work out Tue & Wed, or Tue & Thur or Wed & Thur.

    I feel your frustration mate but you just need to give your body time to heal up before you push on again

    Today I did 30 min interval training on the bike which my right knee didn't thank me for, followed by 10 min that felt more like an hour rolling around on a lacrosse ball.

    I suppose you've disposed of the bodys by now, had they upset you they still be suffering. Sweaty Betty leggings hey? very swanky! is there a hook to hang your katana from?

    You planned to drive to the gym and go in and train. 2 out of 3 isn't bad. LOL I'm just imagining you looking Hench in your Ninja workout clothes, drinking coffee with a straw

    Ive not trained for two weeks mate so its not that
  13. Old Dog - New Tricks

    My body aches, I don't know if I have lumbago for the first time in my life, along with sore knees, tight hamstrings, sore glutes, stiff shoulder ( just the right one) or if I'm coming down with something, or if I'm just old and knackered! Anyway Ive decided not to lift until I feel better so this morning I did about 25 min of stretching and tonight I did 45 min interval training on the cross trainer followed by 15 min stretching.,

    Have a great holiday mate and I hope you come back to a job well done.

    So in summary, you respond well to muscle stimuli, your looking hench and you can kick my butt any day of the week with one arm tied behind your back! I know how you feel with your suits. This last few years have see me put away all of my "big" clothes and buying clothes for my current body size means I now have a "Big wardrobe", a "wardrobe" and a "Small wardrobe". LOL I almost have as many clothes as Mrs BestBefore now. Of course I still love you, But I am dam jealous and a little bit scared
