Thanks again to all those who've made comments in my last journal. Well as you know the wedding is now over and my attempts at a diet are as well (Some may say that looking at these pics I wasn't on a diet but believe me I was.) 2.5 stone lost in a year an half, plus some muscle gains so thats a bonus.

Well, here's the current pics, not as defined as I was earlier this year but meh, can't do much about that.

nice one mate, your missus still training to compete then?

well diet is still in progress, been stupid busy this weekend so not had chance to do much of anything really. Makes me wish I was back to doing not much at work again, had loads of forum/research time then haha.

Big lat doms today, pecs still aching from last week, arms don't want to go straight cos bi's are tight haha gotta love the aching feeling of being 1 step nearer to the goal.

aye well trying a leanish bulk, so fairly low carb but highish fat. See how we go.

Will let you know when I get something sorted out mate, anyway soon be your holiday so then you can spend the whole holiday thinking about coming back training again haha.

I was very tempted to do some training whilst on holiday ( I did manage to find the gym and I went in to look, but then walked out and never went in that building again haha.) Not put alot of weight on over the holiday and weights are seeming to be pretty much the same as when I stopped 3 weeks ago so thats good too.

Aye, well will be as clean as I can make it. Luckily I don't mind eating the same thing everyday so that makes preparing and knowing what to eat when a bit easier.

Legs last night, been a while since I did them so have been hobbling up and down the stairs since I did them haha.

Squat - 10xBar weight, 10x20kg, 10x30kg, 5x40kg

45degree Leg Press - 10x100kg, 8x150kg, 8x150kg

Lying Ham Curl - 10x30kg, 10x40kg, 5x50kg

Standing Calf Raise - 12x60kg, 12x67.5kg, 12x72.5kg

Leg Extension - 10x50kg, 10x57.5kg, 10x65kg

Ball Crunches - 3x12reps

Side Bends - 3x10x25kg

Not bad at all, comparing it to my last time. Hardly ever do squats so think I did fairly well. Leg Press was fairly soon after the squats so was a proper killing for my quads (hence why the leg extension was maxed at 65 when my usual max is 102.5kg lol) think I'll be walking a bit funny tomorrow.

cheers pal, yeah I got a long way to go yet though (and alot of lard to shift too!)

my main problem is my knees, I can overextend my joints so accidentally twisted a knee when I was 15 and its never been fully fixed since. I struggle with some leg stuff which is why I've stuck with pressing rather than quat but just thought I'd give it a quick go as someone was already on the press when I got there.

Squats, the same here......more a case of i dont feel right for some reason......get it in the back when the weights going up, so tend to hack press more.

But go back to the squats every so often so i dont feel lazy.....

Good sesh mate, keep the weight going up and those legs will grow :thumb:

haha still can only just manage to get down the stairs. maybe squats followed by leg press followed by extensions are a bit much in 1 session
