Welcome back Mr Quads!
Amazing what a holiday can do for your mental sanity ayy.
I see that the lure of the journal has pulled you back, I'm tempted to get another one going, but if not careful itís a slippery slope back to fake tan, shaved arm pits and water torture.
Now that youíre back in the land of living you can reflect on the journey with a rational view and as always use as a stepping stone forward. I think itís crazy how different life is once bodyfat gets back to 10% and above.
Good luck in the new journal and training.



Thanks mate. That holiday was the best. I can not fault it. Time with the one you love always make you feel great.

No I won't be back for at least 2 years. Made Jan a promise. It's her time to shine now. Time for her to chase her dreams.

I looked at the trophys today, just after a bit of cardio and thought, bloody hell I have done quite well. I don't think I will ever be top three at the British but it's been a hell of a ride.

Personally my struggle has always been getting mega shredded like Rich Gratten or Plamen. Maybe it's genetic as I worked hader than I thought possible

Scott I am sure you will be back on stage in a couple of years looking better than ever I believe you have all the tools for a very high place finish at a finals you are still pretty young too I believe sometimes even better condition can come with age with more muscle maturity and knowing more about what diet works best for you I never really hit top condition on stage untill 2007 when I was 38 after many years of trying and not getting it.

Thanks Chris and Felix. Chris I will pass on the good wishes to Jan

Felix, that gives me a bit of hope. I am done for now but I am sure once I get some reading done and get some rest away from sport and heavy lifting in me then the fire will be back

The recipes are very clean and I think most people would be more than happy to use them in prep.

Tonight is chilli
250g of lean mince, we cook it and rise it with boiled water to get rid of the fattyness
chopped toms
onion
pepper
chilli
cumin
corriander
tom paste
kidney beans

Reduce it all down and it's very good

Some of you have met Benj. I know Nic and Toby have. He is back as my training partner now which will be good for us both. He wants to compete and I like having someone to train with, so all good.

Today was push day.

Flat bench
60kg x 11 rp 4 rp 2

sat on floor press
40kg x 6 rp3 rp2

decline tri ext
25kg x 13 rp 4 rp 2

I think those reps are right I will check later

then we did a tri set of flys, laterals and pushdowns. Just 3 of those non stop, really give a nice pump and hits everything well.

Bit of stretching and job done.

Think i may have to change the diet a bit all these nuts are costing a fortune.

I will have a think about it over the weekend. Me and carbs have never been great bed fellow so I may well try carbs early doors and then just protein fats and carbs post training.

See what I can draw up

Hey Scott have you considered loading up on carbs post workout as opposed to rest of the day, thinking it may help with ability to tolerate them

funny you say that.
Just done a metabolic typing test from a book i was recommend.

No suprise to me that I am a protein type. So do better on protein and fats and carbs  should only be 30% of my diet. By carbs these must be whole grain.

Now thats no surprise to me as I always thought as much.

So thinking carbs around the workout or at breakfast in the form of oats. PWO will be a bananna and whey.

If youíre carb sensitive Iíd be very cautious of Wholegrain variants. They will likely exaggerate symptoms, ie, bloating, wind and stomach pain. Youíve mentioned before that Brown rice hurts your stomach, so just go really easy on them to test your tolerance over a few weeks. I wish I could handle the Shredded wheat like Big Steve and Middle size Toby  Cheesy

Hi Keith, the book gives a recommended food list for my type. Re reading it I was wrong about the bannana pwo, Apples and pears  are ok.

Looks very easy. planning the carbs around the workout and on off days at breaky. Your right cold brown rice is rubbish for me but fresh its ok. Normal pasta is hell on earth nut wholewheat is fine, once a week, but thats not on the list.

Any reason for no squats today, Mr Squatonater?

Hugely jealous of a plate loading leg press. Considering swapping gyms on leg day so I can use them as my accessory work.
