Thanks mate, they were fine
Looks like this new mix of fluff and heavy lifting is going really well for you. What your goals at the moment, just to enjoy and get stronger or do you have an eye on something ?
Basically to change body composition so I look better. Shits working well, arms and shoulders are looking good, legs look better, just need to lose some more fat, haven’t been able to walk due to the shitty weather. It seems to work well though, I don’t feel as fatigued but main lifts have improved over past month or so too, although I’m eating a fair whack of food, at least 3 decent meals of meat, veg and rice a day, plus oats and whey for breakfast and some snacks.
I’m looking forward to what I can do, as I used to be a little stronger, could squat 230kg, and dead 250kg , was big, but just looked fat, haha
Nice mate, what ever you are doing seems to be working so keep it up. I need to get my lazy ass out of bed and start doing some weight vest walking but just can’t seem to take the first step.
Yeah, best to just get out there and do it mate. I’m missing my walks, poor dog will be too, camping for weekend away and shitty weather really sucks, it’s been pissing down with 90kmph winds expected here
Yep pretty stormy here too tonight.
Still no walks, shitty weather, haha
Missed squats last week due to camping, so a lightish session to break me back into it.

Do you notice any difference in recovery not walking?
Yeah a little bit mate, felt sore after behind Neck Press, but had also changed up the reps and weight, so who knows. I feel bad when I don’t go, bad as in guilty as I’m used to it.
Your lightish and my lightish are definitely very different. Nice work.
totally agree on this one.
Hey Mate you made out of sugar
Get your bloody ass out there, it’s good fun to feel the elements rage and fury.
Great workouts man 160x5 squat light my A**

Haha, thanks mate, very true, might have been a bit slack over last week, although flat stick too, not much time, although it’s all calmed down now, so I’ll smash it again this week

Gotta love gettin a pump
So, as is always the case with 5/3/1, I’ve noticed strength gains, but man- my upper lower split that I was doing beforehand resulted in more hypertrophy in a shorter period of time, and I miss it. I just do well with more interesting routines, more volume, or as you put it- more fluff. Might have to pay attention to my psyche and switch some stuff up soon.
For sure, I’ve done mainly powerlifting style routines for ever, I got strong, looked alright for a bit, then got stronger and fatter, haha.
I’m enjoying my split at the moment, I will change some shit up soon I reckon, my shirts are def tighter and sitting higher due to shoulders, the Mrs keeps telling me to stop as it sucks buying me clothes.

And that’s it, got cut short due to neighbour rocking up to help diagnose a stinky sewer issue we are having
That will be all the protein!!!
Haha, yep I sure give it a workout, but we have an issue of the floor drain in the bathroom drying out and stinking!
Hope it’s an easy fix and not a crack in it as it’s in the slab
