Sobriety and muscle

Hello again! I'm back, now the mobile site is up and running I can come on here more. Quick run down and catch up, alcohol still a major stumbling block for me. Broke up with my girlfriend of two and a half years a week ago, my choice but still ****ed my head up, logical thing to do? Get smashed (logical in my mind anyway). I've realised that single or in a relationship, my relationship with booze is always bad. The last two and a half years dealing with a Bi polar girl who wasn't prepared to help herself has truly messed my head up (especially after wasting 7 years with my wife who was exactly the same). I've finally realised that for me to move on and find a nice girl to settle down with I need to be in control and sober. I'm seeing my doctor Tuesday and am finally opening up to people and getting the support I need. Enough Jeremy Kyle ****, on to training. I'm actually in the best shape of my life,weigh 13 stone 8lbs with about 15% body fat. Currently just finished the first week of a definition stage, will post weights etc tomorrow. Just wanted to start this tonight, basically using this as a training log firstly but also a good place to vent my anger and frustration and get a bit of moral support along the way :) Nice one.

    Right lads and lasses, some actual training to keep you interested ha ha...I'm currently doing a definition stage as I said. The weight stays the same for the three weeks but reps go, week one 30 per exercise, then 40, finally 50. I complete the set, wait 2 minutes then repeat. Do this, 4 sets, 5 times a week.

    Knee raises
    Leg extensions 25kg
    Seated chest press 60kg
    Ham curls 40kg
    Crunches
    Seated row 45kg
    Upright row 29kg
    Bicep curls 32kg

    I love this stage, seems like hell the first few sessions but you grow to love it. The plan is a hypertrophy stage next followed by strength then another definition stage. Should take me nicely up to the summer.

    Nice one

    GOOD LUCK and you brave for posting.  I have similar love for booze trying to replace it with training addiction - so will be keeping an eye on your journal.  Also I not long ago finished relationship with bi polar chap - threw myself into boozing it up with the girls afterwards but honestly feel better for becoming a sober gym bunny
     
    keep it up!!!

    40 reps again, this could get tedious ha ha. Looking forward to when this stage is over so I can lift heavy again. Only so much high rep low weight work I can stomach
