…or run out of golf balls.


#343

@littlesleeper @jmaier31 - this is the result of a turning of a long corner - let’s see if it is here to stay. My wife has booked a re-match this weekend and we’ll find out whether I should start cleaning my clubs ready to join the Tour or whether I’m back with the hackers…


#344

Dude I seen you on Nick Mitchells IG today.

You’ve went viral :joy::+1:


#345

Yeah…that’s how I roll (it’s really not). Cringe.

BDD sucks! I struggle with it as well. Obsessing over stupid shit all the time. I still haven’t been able to do it, but you’d be best off simply throwing the scale away. I find if I place my focus on others as much as possible it helps. In a strange way encouraging and offering help shifts your perspective… and your looking rock solid dude. Many would kill to have your physique. Keep after it dude!

How’s it all going? Is the weight coming off a little ?


#350

@jackolee - thanks for your comments - really appreciated. I sort of agree with you. The scales and the daily weigh-in works, to some extent, in keeping my BDD in check. But, and this is key, it only works when my weight tracks in the right direction. When it doesn’t and I see a gain (even if it consists of predominately water weight) it can lead to a big spiral of self-loathing. So, really, it is a double-edged sword.
I like your suggestion about encouraging and offering help and hope that I do that to some extent here. I’m not making excuses, but here in Dubai there are simply too many posers in the gym I’m using at the moment to even want to engage in offering help to other people. I try to keep my head down and do my thing and then get out.

@simo74 things are good mate. Got back into the routine after a holiday to Uganda. Sort of following on from the paragraph above, I sort of know that after a break from training and a holiday, my weight is unlikely to have tracked down and so I’m sort of avoiding weighing in because I’m already beating myself up mentally and figure the beating will only increase if I categorically know that I’m not tracking down. Give it a week and I imagine I’ll be back in a more comfortable happy place physically and mentally. In any event, I plan to step up the cardio training, which will help immensely.

Good work, how was the back pump after these


#356

Pretty intense tbh. Sore in a very good way this morning. How’re things with you?


#357

Actually really good, the hypertrophy volume block I am doing right now seems to be just perfect. It trashed me but I’m able to recover in time and get trashed again in the next session. Deload next week which will be very nice indeed. Weight is starting to drop but still pretty gross compared to some of you.


#358

Caught up on your training log - seem to be absolutely smashing it and putting the effort in. Definitely a case of keep at it and the results will come. No need to drop in the short term and you’ll be considerably less likely to bounce in the long.
Doing deads for volume is taxing and you’re clearly going for it so keep it up.
I’m trying to dial it in for 2 weeks’ time when I am travelling home for a mate’s stag.

#360

Too many steps! I prefer sets of 10-12 steps so only like 5 or 6 with each leg.


#361

Looks like you’ve been killing it man! How’s the nutrition holding up?
