    No More Free beer, just a journal

    I thought it was about time I started a new journal and decided to go for a title that might get people's attention (although, possibly not on a fitness forum!!) Well, apart from Evo perhaps

    So, how have I been getting on since the last time I posted on here? Well, I have been strictly following the on/off weights and nutrition programme. This, in a nutshell, means that some weeks I train and I watch what I eat, other weeks I don't...

    This has led to progress marginally to the bad side of maintenance!! The last few weeks I have been 'at it' again and have been attempting some ridiculous diet, only allowing myself 2 solid meals each day (loads of shakes are involved .... you get the idea!). My defecit is about 600 - 700cal daily and seems to be quite effective. Extreme I grant you (But is only a temporary endeavour for the beach and proper nutrition will resume post vacances )

    As I sit here before you now, I weigh in at 147lbs @ 12.3%bf. The weight is not a figure which has ever really concerned me but, I hope to hit single figures bf% before I hit the beach this year

    So, there you have it. Welcome back me - yay! I probably won't be posting here daily (because I'm quite lazy) but, at least once a week is very possible.

    At some point over the next few days, I will get round to posting up my current workout in detail. As an overview, I am lifting weights 3 times a week. My routine is split thus: Day 1 = Back & Biceps. Day 2 = Legs & Shoulders. Day 3 = Chest & Tris. This has broadly been my routine for over a year and seems to serve me well. I change up excercises now and then to keep things as fresh as I can.

    Non weight days will usually see a cardio session of some sort. I've recently been doing HIIT on the treadmill using a combination of hills and speed. The hills are by far the most gruelling as, after 60 seconds on maximum incline, the reduction of effort to a comfortable level isn't instant as the treadmill gradually declines over about 40 seconds. Its a killer!!

    This is a picture taken yesterday to give you an idea of where I'm at and also to keep me accountable and determined to make progress. They say the camera never lies so, here goes:-



    Hmmm, the hand holding the camera looks disproportinately big for some reason! I should probably get that looked at...

    lol - yeah, I'm not too sure how that happened.

    Thanks for the encouraging words too

    Pulled a muscle in my back over the weekend so, skipping weights today - don't want to aggravate anything. Bit annoyed but, better safe than sorry.

    You definitely don't have anything to worry about showing that bod at the beach, baby! Keep up the good work!

    Now where's my free beer?

    I feel really screwed over. This is not what I thought this thread would be about.


    Oh. You look pretty lean. I think badasseryness would follow if you put on another 20-30 pounds before cutting.

    I think people Googling "Free beer" will get led here, resulting to record high site registration.

    Oh, and I think you should put on more weight! Why not?

    Heh, so my cunning ploy to spark some interest in my journal may have worked a little too well, huh?

    I agree with the comments about bulking up a bit and I plan to do exactly that after I've been on holiday. A nice leisurely winter bulk, aiming to put on 20lbs. I like the word 'badasseryness' too - sounds like the perfect goal to aim for!

    Brief breakdown of today's workout (all either 3 or 4 sets):-

    Deadlifts
    One armed rows
    Preacher curls
    Lat pulldowns
    dumbell curls
    seated rows
    weighted crunches

    followed by 20mins steady state running.

    Not been gaining much in strength lately but, thats due to the deficit in calories (not enough fuel to get stronger) so, the bulk will also do me good psychologically

    Actually, the word 'beer' can be used to describe either lager or ale. Personally, I favour the latter by quite some margin

    However, as people keep on pointing out, thats not what this thread is about

    Back & biceps are really aching today - that really nice kind of ache that reminds you that you might actually be doing yourself some good...

    hmmm, I can't see any facility to change the title.

    Perhaps it should have been 'free of beer' as, ironically, I'm off the stuff at the moment. Mind you, if I'd called it that, nobody would have cared
