cannot seem to get the scales going downwards..but perhaps at 1800 cals is enough to maintain my mass but still chippin the fat away

hit the gym for a bicep workout

cable curls  50kgs
then cable rows at 90kgs

followed on by overhead pulldowns

then I done forced rep dumbell curls 20kgs,22kgs and 24kgs all alternate single arm seated curls to failure on each set
and to finish..rope waves and medicine ball fast throw and catches against the wall

Sometimes a day or two off from the gym or exercise in general is just what you need mate. Your body is obviously rebelling against the intensity that you've put it through of late. Give it time and you'll be feeling fresh once more. Smiley

Keep up the good work.
