Simo’s Training Log – Trying Not to Be a ‘Fat Dad’


#1342

Woke at 87.0kg (191) today so I thought I’d add a couple of progress pics. No idea if there is any progress !!! Lol


#1343

Simo no… Thicco yes!


#1344

Lookin good man.
How far do you plan to bulk?


#1345

Wow dude. I would swap physiques today…


#1346

Pauses are brutal! They always end up being harder than you anticipate. I go with light weights at the start. I’ve learned my lesson.


#1347

I think your traps may have grown again.


#1348

Yep traps are looking good mate!


#1349

Just adding weight till the end of the year. Will probably get to 90 something. I plan on doing a bit of a cut from Jan to April.


#1350

They deff are brutal. Now I know why coach was laughing about it when he gave me the new plan.


#1351

Thanks @I_Luc and @MarkKO I am guessing the rows and deads are helping with the traps.


#1352

Thanks hog but you would soon get bored of having to stand on tip toes to see in a crowd!!


#1353

Woke today at 85.6kg what the flammin heck is going on here !!!
I trained late last night which meant I ate late and didn’t really have enough or enough water before bed. Hopefully this is just dehydration and I can drink enough to fill up the cells again today. Thinking I’ll start back in the creatine next week too and see if that has an impact.


#1354

Do you take casein protein pre bed? I’m not sure if the websites sponsor has it but I’m gunna tag you in a product on Instagram of what I use
It’s brilliant stuff, you can make shakes or ice cream out of it
Take it just before you go to sleep


#1355

The only casein I get is if I do my natural yogurt mixed with wpc as a desert.


#1356

Woke at 86.1kg - didn’t bounce back as much as I thought. Halloween today so will add 1kg from lollies !!


#1357

And probably become diabetic… Lol


#1358

Woke at 86.4kg, good to see weight coming back


#1359

Woke at 86.7kg, a good day of eating yesterday. Hopefully I can back that up today.
