  1. No time for a stylised update today, quick note of yesterday's workout below. I had my lunch hour so reduced it to the bare essentials. All are 5 reps and weight is in kg Barbell Squat: 20, 50, 60, 60, 70, 90, 90, 90 Bench: 20, 40, 40, 50, 60, 70, 70, 70 Overhead Press (OHP): 20, 20, 30, 30, 37.5, 40, 40, 40 Was really pleased because I managed to equal my PB on the OHP and bench and squeeze the whole thing in about 45 mins!
  2. Day 1 Part 1: This morning began strangely. Was it the knowledge that below us, beneath our feet, on this very ground, that the Earth was spinning at an incomprehensible speed? Hurtling through space? Only those at the Miskatonic University could tell us that. No. It was the thought of pounding the pavement. I knew from looking at my partner straight away that this would be a trial for both of us. And a trial it was. We should have ran yesterday. But after a night haunted by the Old Ones (ed - the hot weather in the UK), Monday morning proved to be impossible. Barely had we broke a sweat w
  3. OMG yes final fantasy. I'm obsessed with VII to the stage where I play through it at least once a year. And love your avatar there Reala! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hi Kristen/Rinn! Good luck with all your goals from another longtime lurker turned Rebel!
  5. I've been lifting for about 18 months on and off. I'll go through a period of say 3-4 weeks of doing some consistent lifting and starting to rack up the weight and then start to lose interest, not go for say 2 weeks and then start the cycle all over again. I started doing SL 5x5 and I have to say it's brilliant because it's so simple. I can't stick to it though due to gym/work time constraints so have to improvise. At the moment I try to ensure I squat at least twice a week, bench at least twice a week, DL at least once and then work in OHPs, pull ups, dips, push ups and other full body exer
  6. Accountability is a massive thing for me. I have all the will in the world to go and do something and get really good at it, but unless I have somewhere to write it down and someone to tell me what I'm doing is useless, or that I'm doing really well, then inevitably I stop and fall into old habits. Exercise is no different. Over the last 18 months my weight has yo-yoed, my lifts have increased and stalled and I've varied wildly in my body image. No more! By making myself accountable to you lot here, I will ensure that I stick at it. But to try and make it interesting for you too, I will writ
  7. Hi everyone, long time lurker first time poster so a tiny bit nervous! Where to start? I discovered lifting and strength exercises about 18 months ago after years of being physically inept and fell in love with it. My quest to do a pull up (achieved 18/05/2013) led me to one of my favourite ever NF articles and I've been hooked evern since. Now trying to push myself a step further and lift BIGGER!!! Current PBs are 105kg Squat, 130kg DL, 70kg bench. Out of lifting I'm obsessed with Videogames and music. My degree is in music and I wrote my dissertation on the evolution of it in videogame
