  1. It's grim to wake up to. Just to note that London and Scotland voted remain - same with the young who'll have to live with this decision. Unfortunately we have a large older population. Pound has already plummeted and Farage retracted claim that EU money would be spent on NHS. However, it's not a general election, it's an opinion and the government don't have to act on it ... But yeah, it's a shitshow!
  2. I was looking for a clip from Idiocracy to make a point the other day, and came across a vid where the guy pointed out that at least the people in power in the movie are benevolent in their stupidity!
  3. Sorry about the useless comments on bench then! Yeah Pendlays kind of lock you into position, which sounds horrible, but isn't because it stops you rising up, shrugging, etc - well it sorted me out.
  4. And good for not beating yourself up. Life's too short, etc... I haven't yet killed a plant, but it's not happy with me!
  5. Squats - I saw the bar go up and down in a straight line at least. This is a good thing! Bench press - arms look great, are you going to arch your back and brace your legs at some point? I could be wrong, but it's what I've been doing anyway. Barbell row - this is exactly why I do Pendlay rows. I'm also a dirty, dirty cheater, but the form on Pendlays is really strict and relatively easy to stay in. Just my 0.13p
  6. It was surprisingly pleasant, actually! It was a very fancy 30th wedding anniversary party at a Naval Club... People kept asking me what I did, so I evangelised about the charity I've been working for, and I may have some new people interested in hosting us! Welcome once again! I've found accessory exercises to be really helping, actually. With regard to Bench I managed more reps last time I did them, did all 5 sets and felt some burn in the pecs because my triceps weren't failing as early on as usual. Accessories are just assisted bodyweight dips and as many pushups as I
  7. Thanks for this @Alaysia - good old Alan Thrall! Seriously thinking about sticking a playlist together one of these (rest days) and just watching them all, he's so good. However, I'm not even 2 months into the programme, so I think what I'm going through is technically a stall and not a plateau... The worst has been the last few workouts when I've failed on all lifts on all sets. That, and suffering from TOM weakness has not been good for me, psychologically. The SL app has already got me to deload on a couple of lifts, and I've been able to fail less on the big compounds. OH Press and Bench
  8. You ou get a warning. Never overwatered it enough to kill it. On the rare days where I actually drink enough, I tend to stop logging past this minimum...
  9. Yes mate!!!!!! Look at you kicking self-doubt in the balls! Set today's achievement firmly in the mind in case you ever doubt yourself again! This is also great to hear, as I've been struggling myself - stalling in all but one of my lifts at the same time has really sapped my motivation of late. So there you have it. You're inspiring. Thanks for sharing!
  10. Hot boys in the gym certainly helps!
  11. Argh! Squats! I think I must've been turning my feet out too much (as well as pushing for 'bounce') because both adductors feel awful and I've pretty much pulled my groin on the right side. Warmed up with the empty bar, then as soon as I added serious weight the pain was too much so I had to quit after a set and a half Usual fails on OH Press. Luckily a guy who looked exactly like Wolfgang from Sense8 asked to work in as I rested the mandatory 5 mins, which kept me distracted at least... New PR on deadlift - 1x5 75kg with mixed grip!
  12. Do feel free to add to it! Started on May 5th, weighing 57.6kg. TOM-based water retention has me at 59kgs at the moment, so I'm hoping the whole recomp thing is working...
  13. First of all, I think they've all been reading this thread - no one space-invaded, and only the guy who looks and dresses like 1980s Dave Gahan failed to rack his weights and he gets a pass for keeping me entertained otherwise. So you know how last month I had a particularly poor workout just before my period? I've now had two this week. I was due Sunday, and my body did all the cramps and the sweats at least twice a day, every day up till about 30 mins before I hit the gym today, when it actually started. Balance was all over the shop, generally felt weak and I also made stupid er
