Going Down Fighting!


Thanks mate, it wasn’t too bad, nothing too hard, just freaking hot, haha, seems like it been scorching forever here this summer.


I’m so jealous, the weather here is grim. Summers approaching though might get 2-3 good days, haha


Took it fairly easy today, nothing serious. Haven’t lifted since last Sunday, felt tired as fuck early in the week,then runny nose and blocked head, ears are still blocked and a horrible noise in them, more than the normal ringing i have, grrr!

Good to see you back lifting and posting on here. I had a cold last week too…if fkng sucks


Thanks big fella, my head’s still clogged like crazy and my ears ringing like a bell! I bought some stuff today to dry it all up, let’s hope it works!


That was me last weekend. Luckily i has a repeat of some antibiotics I hadn’t used up so I dosed myself up. Managed to get through the week and not miss any training which was deff a win


It sort of worked out alright, was flat out with work anyway, had a staff meeting one night, then first aid another, and all sorts of other shit going on. A few days missed is no biggie


I didn’t mean to pass the germs along. Sorry. Get well mate.

Haha, thanks mate. It’s pretty much gone,ears are still a little blocked, and one has a howling in it, grrr


That’s annoying, hope you’ll be over it soon.
Btw all you guys downunder seems to be getting sick, isn’t it summer down there?
It should be us poor souls with the cold, the rain, the wind, the no sun stuff that’s supposed to be ill.


Yeah just the end of summer, it usually stays fairly hot for March and still quite warm till end of April here, last year just before Easter we still had over 30.


Did you have safetys or wriggle out !!


Always bench in my rack so it hits the safeties when I cock it up.


Public Holiday Deadlifts.
Easy one for dead’s today, have a niggling slight pull in my back.
Have done a shit load of walking again lately, usually 3 k’s in the morning and 2.5 -3 k’s at night, feels good now it’s not so freaking hot outside!

Amazing how similar all programs end up looking. Just minor this and that differences really


Still smashing it Luc. Seems there’s a cold going around T nation… I pinpoint it to either simo or hog as the culprit - the source of the plague spreading lol. Keep killing it big fella!


Its crazy how walking can make you fatigued. The heat prob isnt helpin your cause! lol


Alrighty, have changed my days around a bit, dropping to 4 instead of 5, will hit main lifts @531 percentages and other fluff tacked on which has worked quite well.
