Recovery, gluttony and it all starts again…

Hello!! I decided not to bother you with ramblings about fuck all last week. I didn’t train at all so apart from the mountain of food I ate, there wasn’t much to tell.  Don’t worry though, I’ll give you a brief summary of that gluttony in this post!!  Last week… Last week, I mostly ate burgers […]

4 weeks out and Meh!

This week hasn’t been anything spectacular, although my deadlifting confidence had a bit of a boost on Wednesday, which I really needed! Other than that, there was training, work, eating and sleeping. Just a normal week really. Monday 27th January 2014 When we trained with our mate Loz, he pointed out that my squats were […]

5 weeks out and the best training day EVER!

What a week!! Not much training has happened, but the stuff that has was hardcore, particularly Wednesday…! Despite the lack of training, I seem to have a lot to say for myself! Monday 20th January 2014 I’ve been freaking out completely about my deadlift, so I thought I’d book a session with Mike to get my […]
