Blogs looking good mate. Always pop in for a check. You looked insane last year!

Nice to see you popping in, buddy! Thanks mate.  I thought you'd like seeing my progress pics  Smiley

A bit of a lung buster Monday night, Quads + Biceps (+shoulders).  I was still a bit sore from the previous week and the weekends efforts, so not sure if I've got compacted DOMS from that too.

Machine Hack - 120kg x12,12,12,12
Front squats - 100kg x8, x8
Single leg Leg press - 80kg x12,12,12
Seated cable hammer strength curls 17.5kg x8,8,15kg x8,8

*EZ bar reverse curls 20kg x12,12,10
*super setted*
*DB hammer curls 15kg x8,8,8
DB lateral raise 10kg x8,8,8

I seem to have found a groove on the machine Hacks.  Foot position has been altered a touch, along with rep tempo that is really frying my quads.  The four sets of 12 reps is pretty tough, so the front squats straight after was 'orrible!  I went from 60kg to 100kg on them that was a bit of a shock and in hindsight should have been a smaller increment. 

Chest + tri's tonight...

Lower session today. I am already questioning if I am getting anywhere near as much out of the lower volume sessions as I was the higher, despite this being my normal for so many years and the higher volume being only a short spell.

He's a convert!  Cheesy

I'm enjoying seeing you in some of your best shape in the past few years. Still remember when you first came on the scene with that front MM shot! Glad you are shooting for sustainable now. Would be great to see you back on stage but doesn't matter if you do or don't! Looking strong in the lifts mate.

Thank you buddy. Its a great feeling at the moment. Just enjoying the training, life and even diet.

Missed you guys so thought I'd update! Lifes been busy recently but loving training. Might be looking at a home gym set up in time so will be asking you all for advice!

Currently training:

Mon: 5 a side/11 a side footie
Tues: Pull
Weds: Low quad focus
Thurs: Push
Fri: Off
Sat: Pull including deads and ham curls
Sunday: Push

Focussing on frequency and volume as per all the recommendations although the % difference I am unsure of between this and a once per week body part split. Have just come off a good 9 months of traditional bodybuilding splits and needed a change.

Will try and update more. Very much enjoying the IFBB scene at the mo with the recent Arnold classics and am a fan of the mens physique and classic divisions!

Great to see you back, buddy! I was only thinking the other day of our IOW training session  Smiley

Training is currently 16-20 sets a day over 5 exercise on good old reliable push/lower/pull

It's pretty much the same for each session with bench and dips for chest, rows and pull downs for back, laterals for delts and deads/Hypers/leg press/seated calf raise for lower and finally deads once a week for the iron god

How much Krill oil you taking?

I see its the new 'in' supplement compared to standard omega 3 fish oil, but whenever I've looked at any the EPA and DHA profile has been shit

It is very hot right now, I take one gel cap a day which has helped no end with my joint pain and the htp5 is amazing stuff for sleep. As I have quite a few 4am starts it helps force sleep
