Parents visited last week, weight at 187.5lbs (expected weight gain due to a couple of bevvies and a cheat day)

Aside from the daily walking (covering between 1 - 2.5miles), today I did....

Front Squat
10x3 @ 90kg

Bench Press
10x3 @ 107.5kg

10x3 @ 127.5kg (last set was a 2+1)

-Front squats were hard work but all reps were good. Up to 92.5kg next time out.
-Bench was solid, again all reps were fine, but with no spot I want to keep at this weight another week.
-Deadlift... the same old shit - my grip is causing problems by the last 3 sets or so. Will persevere for now before getting the straps involved again, but I'm pulling as explosively on the last rep as on the first. The problem is keeping grip long enough for the eccentric.

Will do similar workout on Thursday (same bodyparts, different mvmts) and take til Monday to recover. Will then try a 3 day a week run and see how recovery stacks up on what is essentially 3 full body workouts. Recovery been very good lately, due to the meat I'm eating I think.

One day I will be front squatting again. I went to go coach some new players at my local club last night and caught myself stepping into their scrimmage and jogging around a bit.

Stupid wingers playing flat up when the balls still int he 9 and 10's hands... just asking for it. I was wondering if I could teach them a lesson without breaking out of a jog. I thought better of it.

Best stay out of it Nick!! It'll end in tears (and tears!)

Weighed 185.5lbs today so weight loss on the move again. The cheat days keep me going but cost me about half a week in terms of losing weight... when the drops start to plateau I'll throw in the odd 10 days with no cheat to keep it moving.


Walked about a mile.

10x3 @ +25kg

10x3 @ +5kg

10x3 @ 100kg


-Visibly leaner today in the midsection and 36" jeans are now officially no good for me - wore my 34's and they were comfy. 32's here we come!!

-Training was solid; dips felt fine but will only up by 2.5kg next week to make sure I'm used to the new angle.
-Went too light on chins: the handles are a little further apart than I'm used to so wanted to err on the side of caution - will go to 7.5kg next week and should nail it. All reps were dead hang through to collarbone-to-bar.
-SLDL's were fine, go 105kg next week.

Chest has really filled out on this 10x3 run, even with the fat loss the moobs are bulging!
