Thats what we come here for. Good to see you back at it. How’s the lungs holding up?

A lot better today mate. Still a little wheezy and still using the inhaler.

That’s it mate. New training block, new fire, new intensity. Time to get to work.

Chest was burning on these. Damn those 3 pump burpees!!!

Great session. Massive upper body pump.


I don’t know if it is me getting over the chest infection, the week off and me getting back to training or the burpee effect. But I have been hot all week, like furnace burning inside hot. Not just after training but all day. I think I am going to have I start eating more food if I want to maintain weight.


That’s terrible news, sorry to hear that.


Recovery burpees tonight - 150 plus a couple extra for luck. Worked up a good sweat and lower back a little pumped after deadlift yesterday. Good little session


Burpees from tonight


Training looks like it’s going well

Thanks big Rob, I had a week off last week due to illness but am feeling great now and reckon this training block is going to be very productive.

You put the word ‘recovery’ in front of the word burpees. You truly have fallen to the dark side.
