Plateau Buster!


Doing 5x5 strength training for 6 weeks now.

On friday night I hired myself out to some, erm, less strong individuals.

helped them move flat:

50 heavy ass card board boxes, 4 storey flat at one end, 4 storey flat at the other, no elevator.

3 hours later id taken my 50 pounds earnt to the all you can eat chinese buffet.

my calves and forearms and hamstrings are killing me, but in the 3 days following my waist and navel waist measurements have gone down and my weight has gone up by 4 pounds!

anyone else have any ways they shake up their routines?
