    W - 91.5

    lightest i've been in 5-6 weeks.

    All by monitoring macro intake since the weekend.

    I'll train later in the afternoon, got 200/300km drive for work so will train at a gym down there that's pretty good.

    I might start posting some pics of the gyms I go to.

    2014 - 79.8kg
    2015 - 81kg
    2016 - 80kg

    Took this year off, I feel I over diet or can fill out a tiny bit more and would like to hit 82-83kg if I compete next year.

    My off season so far has been the best I've had since my comp debut in 2007.

    15.10.17

    W - 91.4

    Trained at 430am

    A - Squats - 3 x 6

    B - Deads - 3 x 7,7,6

    C1 - Back Step Lunge - 3 x 8
    C2 - Cable Crunches - 3 x 20

    D - Prone Hammy Curl - 3 x 8

    I forgot my proper powerlifting belt which I do rely on to brace my midsection. I had to use the Schiek velcro one that i carry in my gym bag which doesn't create hardly any inter abdominal pressure so felt a tad vulnerable with squats and deads today.

    W - 91.4kg

    for this week;

    Day 1 91.6
    Day 2 91.5
    Day 3 91.5
    Day 4 91.6
    Day 5 91.4
    Day 6 91.4
    Day 7 91.4


    Very consistent weight this week. I've limited my food but only at night time where my last meal I pull back a bit to hit my macro intake.

    For me to see the scales drop I think i'll need to exert more energy by increasing movement. The introduction of a night time walk could see the scales drop.

    Typically in this situation, novice meatheads and clueless coaches would lower/slash carbs/calories to see more weight gain. Another option could be to bolt in a few park sprints after training. 4-5 x 50-70m sprints with 2-3 minute rest so around 15 mins max of cardio exercise. To me i'd be around 16 weeks out from a show in today's instance, the last thing I want to do is lower calories just now, I'll find a way to increase energy expenditure before I touch calories.

    No training today. I have DOMS in my glutes and hamstrings. Very unusual and when I get DOMS i don't think 'Yeh woo, I had a killer session' - I think more along the lines of did I overreach, am I fatigued, do I need to de-load, is my protein too low etc.

    Training hasn't been feeling great recently so I'll be listening to my body. I've been meaning to get a remedial done, I need 2. one for my right shoulder as it rolls forward so i think tight right traps/lats/teres major etc and one for my QL and to alleviate hip flexor tightness so glutes etc.
