  1. Thanks for the advice there coffeeandbacon. It'll take some consideration I guess. I have given some careful thought to whether I'd like to lift, and I'm not entirely opposed to it. I know it will help aesthetically, and will help with overall relative strength. But as far as it goes at present most of my goals are bodyweight based instead of lifting X amount of weights. Although I have lifted before, and I do kinda miss it. I have considered doing maybe 3 days a week lifting, and some more advanced bodyweight training over the weekend, but I think as far as that goes, I'll see how it goes a
  2. Yeah ok, maybe a little pressure then
  3. No pressure Waldo, it's great reading so far anyway.

  5. Hey guys, I have been looking for some answers for a few weeks now as I've been getting really frustrated with stalling in my workouts. I've done a few searches, asked a few people and want to really fine tune my workouts to make some further progress. So, what I'm working with is 5ft4, 78kg, round about 25% body fat. I eat primarily paleo based meals complemented with some protein, and extra carbs and calories where needed. I've just started to take bulking seriously, and while it's harder eating paleo I'm doing ok. My maintenance calorie intake is pretty low as I'm pretty short and not t
  6. Yeah I'll second that. I jumped over from here yesterday and read start to finish during a slump at work. Very well done Waldo. Only thing I was bummed about was not seeing a 'building blocks pt 3' article. All in good time, great reading so far anyway.
  7. Ok, so I did some research over in the "help me plan my routine" section (I probably shouldve posted there first, sorry) and came across the sort of info I was after. If anyone's still following, this is what I picked up: Am I correct in assuming that: With bodyweight goals are much more important than a program per se - so aiming towards specific movements rather than making sure I'm exercising all the different body parts - it will happen as a matter of course due to the fact that these are compound exercises. Low reps of any exercise in a progression will be much more conducive to pure
  8. So is anyone able to suggest what sort of changes to make in my routine that might help me make some progress? Even a link in the right direction would be great. I've talked to a few friends about it who suggested upping reps to 12 and cutting the rowing machine out as well as working back with some light deadlifting, but otherwise they didn't think I had any problems. So now I'm confused as to who's right and who's wrong, or what I should be doing. Ideally I don't want someone to tell me just what to do, I want to know what I can do to progress, but also why. And that will help me to continue
  9. Thanks elastigirl. I've looked at a few progressions, I think ill try non assisted, parallel to floor and see how I go. If not ill try taking a step back and see how I go. Al kavadlo is great, his progressions are always excellent, thanks for the link!
  10. Yup sounds like you guys are right. Yes I'd like to lose the last if my fat, but that's an aesthetic thing that should really be secondary. I have the means now to work on strength and gains, money may be a little tighter in the future so it probably makes sense to cut later. I have been teetering between bulk and cut for a while and didn't know which way to turn. Am I right in thinking cutting will be a lot easier when I've built up more muscle? In terms of changing my workout structure, I'm not 100% sure what to do there. Any suggestions? Am I better to work on specific areas each day , like
  11. Hey guys, I've posted a few times about improving the efficiency of my workouts, and now that I've hit a plateau it's time to call upon your sage wisdom once again. I'm doing circuit training 3 times a week, round about 45 mins per circuit. It's kicking my butt, but I'm no longer seeing the gains in muscle mass or strength that I was. Here's what I'm doing at present: 7-8 mins rowing machine warm up 10 x Incline one arm press ups each arm (round about 45 degrees) 10 x Hanging straight leg raises 10 x door assisted pistol squats each leg (parallel with floor at present, still working on g
  12. Thanks! One small goal ticked off the list, now I just wanna keep working on 4 sets of 10.
  13. YEAH BOOII!!! It's been a minor goal of mine for a little while. I do them as part of my bodyweight circuit, alternating every set between pull up and chin up. This morning I managed 8 pulls, 10 chins next set (followed by victory lap), 7 pulls and 7 chins to finish. Next goal is 10 pulls, and I'm not too far away either. Maybe 10 pull ups with good form or no kipping is a better idea.
  14. There are many but I had to weigh in: Latest favourite author is definitely Steven Erikson. You either love him or hate him in my experience talking to people about him. Just the most epic fantasy series of all time under his belt, and prolific as well. He was smashing out a book every 12-18 months at one point, and the series is now 15 books long. Others include Pratchett, Feist, Tolkien, Sanderson, Le Guin, and Bernard Cornwell. I would've put George RR Martin in there at one point, but he pissed me off with the delays on a Dance with Dragons. I think he wrote himself into a corner to b
  15. Rammstein - Reise, Reise. It's awesome. Nuff said. Also Dethklok - The Gears. Brutal.
