    Iím up about 5lbs over where I want to be at the moment, but thatís only happened in the last few days w the holiday/family in town, etc.

    Got a bit carried away with some desserts and a few drinks, and wasnít able to get in the gym Thursday and went yesterday but only 40 mins cardio.

    About to go in now and hit back/bis/cardio and tomorrow have a vicious session planned a teammate so I think Iíll be back down to where I want to be in a few days then continue to work up slowly from there

    Back is going to require a lot of improvement mainly with width but want more thickness as well. Basically if I want to keep winning, everything needs improvement except my calves

    Love to hear it man. Congratulations on the kids and I agree I see forums making a come back again as the big open spaces are too polluted with window lickers and just ppl with 4 iq.

    I will be back more often for sure.

    Biggest gains I've made in the last year is tidying up my diet and doing what you suggested a long time ago high fat diet with my carb sources coming from raw dairy and honey with fruit for pwo. My meat sources are high quality beef with organ meat also with eggs. This diet is amazing sleep really well tbh.

    I'm not massively muscular but for not doing a cycle in over 10 yrs I'm in decent knick.

    Currently 225lbs.

    Last night training was bill pearls shoulder work out which is amazing I've copied his plans and the gains have been excellent.

    Tonight will be back. Haven't decided what exercises I am going to do. I've a busy weekend this week so have to squeeze in training asap.

    That's excellent! Sleep is amazingly important. Without proper rest progress really isn't made.
    225 lbs is nothing to scoff at!
    Yeah Pearl keeps it simple and effective. Way too many guys today over-complicate training. Basics simply work and always will.

    Totally man i find ppl try to over complicate everything i did it with diet very rarely did I do it with food but I did piss away 1000s on bullshit supps. I just eat everything I need now and feel way way better than ever.

    Pearl was the first imo big big guy all over and tbh Ive a simar shape to him once I batter certain body parts. I'll never be to his level as I've the genetics of a wheely bin but if I can get 80% of where he was I'll be extremely happy.

    I have his book keys to the universe and its excellent tbh great read with plenty of exercises and experience in there for any stage lifter imo.

    225lb at my weight is perfect I'm not ripped but have an ok fat level.

    **Marcus's HIT Dungeon**

    I can vouch for the meticulousness of this manís diet. During our whole visit, and while he toted the wife and I all over the great country of Ireland, he meal prepped, brought his food everywhere, and the only thing he consumed off of his regular diet was vegetables

    Even when we stopped to grab a bite at restaurants, he never ordered anything except water, if that lol. I was impressed!!

    Thats it man. I wish i could go off it just physically can't it fcks me up stomach and skin wise so its not worth it sadly.

    I do miss certain things but not that much ha.

    For years I would cheat and justify it in my mind that it was worth it when it wasn't.

    I'm glad I could show you the never ending green here as always its easy to bring ppl around when you're as easy going as you and your wife man

    If you ever need a room man you're welcome anytime. I should have a home gym by the time you get here.

    Tonights workout was a heavy heavy fast chest session with arms and some hanging and hyper extensions for my lower back which I've been missing.

    Started with stretching and 2 warm ups.

    2 heavy incline dbs presses with a drop
    2 heavy flat sets with a drop
    2 heavy incline flies no drop
    2 side db presses
    2 inner flat db presses

    Bis and tris to finish which i hammered

    And 10 mins cardio at the end

    Nice man way to hit it. Iíve been off keel for a few weeks with a heavy workload but spoke with my coach yesterday. Weíre going to push the national show from August to either October or November to allow more time for some growth. Gives us 4-5 months to grow and 4-5 months for prep.
