Up to 111kg BW now then bud? Still blasting?




Thereabouts (clothed that is)... week 10 of the blast so looking at least for another 4 weeks altho I have enough for another 10

So for now your staying put gym wise?




I will get thru this next block alright, altho incline BB work could be interesting, and for 90% of my training TBH this gym is fine (for half the price of any other gym membership and 90secs cycle door to door). As and when if I need to pay for one off sessions at other gyms that will see me thru this year I think but if towards the end of the year I'm consistently finding the rules/weights insufficient then I will have to start looking elsewhere. The best options are not convenient at all unfortunately. All the convenient options are not without their own flaws either so I'm just replacing one problem with another

111.8kg this morning, last week of this block and deloading again. Quad feeling alright over the weekend so hoping it would see thru this session OK.
 
Landmine Calf Raises: 10x25kg, 10x40, 60x11, 11, 11, 11
Inward Hack Squats: 6x40, 60x10, 10, 12
Sissy Squats: +10kg x15, 15, 15
Hamstring Curls: 8x#6, #9x10, 10, 10
Seated Cable Curls: #3+2.5kg x17, 15, 15
 
Almost trouble free today. Calf work was fine, popped the odd extra few easy reps in there. Hacks I approached with caution but they went fine, no niggling at all and reps moved like there was nothing there. Sissy's were the interesting one, started fine but at the end of the 2nd set I could just start to feel the dodgy area on my quad rearing up. It was obviously there on the last set too but I went cautiously and also found a bit of flaring moved it off a bit. All east reps tho. Ham curls were no problem and then a little extra on the bicep deload compared to the other week but still all straight forward enough.

Those sissys look like murder mate! Glad there was no more popping on the quad.
 
Have you decided what you are doing to do with the DB press? I had much the same issue before switching back to bench. Of course there is a possibility the rules will relax over time as new members come in unaware of the silly rules lol.
 
... or it could just be time to open 'the dirty gym'

The dodgy area fatigue as end of block? Any additional maintenance work you can do on it?

Next block (next week) will be BB work. DBs next time I'll be OK for 75% of  my block and the couple of sessions I may not be then I'll d a day pass elsewhere.

Fatigue on the niggle could be a factor. If there are tears there's not too much to do other than let it heal otherwise it could worsen so other than still using it but under caution that's it.

TV aerial all sorted this morning. Real bonus. Found some guys a mate recommended altho they weren't immediately local. Was booked in for 2 weeks time unless anything came up altho they were my way today for another job so depending how that went they said they'd pop their head in to see what's what. Turned out that job was a case of some old lady not turning a power switch on so was done in 5 mins. A couple of quick checks, a few connections fixed up and re-established and Robert is your mother's brother, fully working. Maybe half an hour, £50 call out. Could easily have fobbed me off with a new booster box etc (as that is where the connections were lose but he just stripped/reconnected one cable and replaced another). We're guessing the dodgy cable/connection was probably not insulating properly and power surges from switches going on etc were what kept cutting it out when it did temporarily work, but originally the aerials were not showing anything until the connections were fixed anyway.
 
Should be in the good books now tho, mrs wasn't happy at the 2 weeks wait but these were the only guys I got off a recommendation so didn't want to get some cowboy in and now it's sorted.

So after ringing the aerial guys up and before they came round I squeezed in my push deload session this morning. Weighing 111.2 (bit light but cals not as religiously high due to lower expenditure this week) and ready to go.
 
Incline DB Press (30deg): 10x15s, 10x25s, 5x35s, 40s x9, 9, 9
Flat DB Flyes: 17.5s x13, 13, 13
BB Decline Skulls: 10x20, 45x12, 15, 15
Straight Bar PDs: 12x#9, #13x20, 12x15, 15
DB SLR: 8s x20, 20, 18
 
All easy peasy again. Bit of yoga to get going. Randomly the shoulder was a bit pinchy again initially but eased off and rattled the 40s no issues. Good neck cracking on the first set of flyes, in a good way LOL but they all came easily. Went heavier than last deload on the skulls but still very comfy work there, and maybe got a bit excited on the 1st set of PDs but calmed myself down after that but again, all easy. It was half way thru PDs I got the call the aerial guy was en route so those and SLRs were kind of supersetted, SLRs were well easy but shoulder liked it that way.

Do you think you have surpassed your natural genetic limit?

Is the sheer volume of food required to just maintain sustainable? I mean you drop cals because of less expenditure but you lose weight so why drop cals in the first place? Do you think once blast is done and cals are even higher you’ll be able to maintain the extra weight?

Good news on the aerial and jammy with the swift turnaround for it.
BW holding above 110kg now - must be happy with that

I think I am certainly teetering on the edge genetically speaking, I dare say if I turned natty now despite my best efforts I would probably lose a few kgs. The eating is hard work, feeling full most of the time but needing to eat more isn't easy/comfortable (may explore homemade shake options) and doesn't make training easy either. Switching to less varied carb choices has certainly eased that lately tho.
 
The weight drop is only like a lb or so tops TBH, yes I maxed out at just over 112 last week and am now just over 111 (so 2lbs) but considering that 112 was hit immediately post xmas and birthday indulgences I am still up 2lbs on pre-xmas weight. The cals drop is only slight, I'd guess maybe 300 or so a day and is just a bit more comfortable again. That said, being back on my routine food again may also be easing those feels a bit and upping next week shouldn't see the discomfort I was suffering over the holiday period.
 
I would anticipate a small drop on the cruise, bloating etc should reduce on cruise doses for example but if I keep eating the cals (which will actually be easier cruising as it is AAS that plays havoc with my guts) and and hitting training volume I should survive 3 months or so with minimal damage.... I hope.
 
The mind fvck is just having a huge waist from constantly eating. I can wake up and look proportionally/aesthetically decent (for the weight I've added), then by mid afternoon it's like I've swallowed bean bag.

Yeah, winning on all counts today. Days like this are rare and tomorrow is a big Social Service conference meeting so should be back to normal by then LOL Aerial was a huge win, cheap, really nice guy (he's on DIY SOS next series) and straight as they come.
 
110, considering I weight myself clothed 110 is a truer weight) with a few weeks left is workable. It's always a battle as you know you've lost some condition so there are moments where you get pissed at the extra work to come in a few months time, but it's the sacrifice you have to make and thankfully I don't feel I've gone too much to pot.

I'm with you with the eating mate. I can eat **** till the cows come home, but healthier food fills me up and supresses any urges to eat anything else. Very weird, as I'm a natural grazer of rubbish but when in the right mindset I struggle to eat enough(if that makes sense), it's something I need to work on to keep the energy levels up!
 
Great news with the ariel business.
