Thought I would post my training, Am currently using a Mike Mentzer Heavy Duty style plan.
Have been doing it now for 5 weeks. Seems to be working.

DB Flat Bench
38kg/84lbs x 8 PR+2
Machine Lateral Raises

Good day all in all. Bodyweight was 215lbs @ 6ft, Going to have to trim the fat a little, going to do this just by lowering carbs and upping protien a little just to balance it a bit.

All in all a great session, Kept the rest times low and powered through, hopefully the ankle will have got better by next week allowing me to squat again :slight_smile:

Bodyweight was 212lbs @ 6ft, Bodyfat is slowly coming down, want to get to 205lbs then really push on and make some big strength and size gains :slight_smile:
