    Really????? Obs fishing? That takes too much time. He would throw 1/4 sticks of dynamite in to save time and grab what washes up. LOL

    Leg day was good. I said I were to reach a new PR and did hit 290kg x 6 at the sled leg press.

    Leg ext
    Horizontal press
    /wu

    Sled press 170 to 290 adding a plate x side each set

    Leg abd/add
    Seated calves
    hypers


    One month of training legs (five sessions) passes and I'm contented. Went from 170x6 very first time to 290x6 today. Same routine which is getting old though, gonna change things next time, maybe try some proper squats.


    Need food and rest now, shoulders and traps tomorrow.

    45 degree inclined leg press, or just leg press.


    Gym also got this one named the horizontal:



    Max load 195kg though.

    To my reckoning the horizontal makes bw count, load on legs should be comparable to squatting same weight, the sled you push the platform up so bw doesn't count there.

    With squats I wasn't going anywhere I could only load 50kg (120lbs) on bar and that did absolutely nothing to my legs, so I consider the above to be rather of a big improvement, but I'll hack my way up to some serious squatting eventually, CV strain being the limiting factor.

    Anyone good with changing end date to the 27th, or care if I take my pics on the 18th. I'm beaching it from the 19th to the 23rd, and will probably be bloated...lol

    It's all the same to me, but if we decide to change the end date we should finalize it quickly

    No, you are damn near perfect. But as a judge I can’t show favoritism.

    Of course, I could wait till the 24th to post them, but I will be truthful. It's not in me to lie, unless it's to a cop when asked how many I've had...lol

    I don't see a problem with that it's just a few days out. Myself I can only take pics on Sunday so got to be either 15 or 22th.

    You can of adjust the seat that's what I do. I go deep with knees close to chest at the leg presses, I got good flexibility and stretch thoroughly before pressing.

    In my opinion, most of you could have posted the day after it started as your final pics. You are giving the others more time than yourself to improve.
    If everyone agrees, then I do not have an issue with a change date for finishing. I do believe that it needs to have EVERYONE in agreement. One of you may have this planned out for a specific date and still need to dehydrate for the final pics ( just an example).
    I have provided my .02. So the rest of the judges and contestants, itís up to you.
    Or we could just leave the date and let everyone post when they feel like it.

    Since we all got our setbacks with trips to hospitals holidays etc I'd say it's not a bad idea to give everyone some bonus days, so to speak.

    Good enough session but nothing special, focused on the presses, tried the military, smith, and DB presses. Must say I'm getting more and more confident with DB pressing vs anything else, best feeling when it comes to isolating target.

    Then usual lateral raises sset upright rows, no negative took a break from them, went more intense on the rears instead, did some dropsets on the rev pec fly.

    Planned shrugs and tried but couldn't just raise the bar, no fuel left. Arms tomorrow, I'll give it a try again.


    Today a former world championess was training in the room she's same age as PBDC I believe, nice to give glances at.


    I knackered, heading to bed hoping for a good sleep.

    I worked shoulders today as well. Struggle with shrugs cause it puts unwanted pressure on my back. Got a good one in through, couldn't hardly lift my arms when done...lol

    I have really struggled to add cardio, but my business partner wants to start working out to help him with his new found hobby, scuba diving, so we're gonna start doing cardio together. This will definitely motivate me to get off my ass. Adding cardio should make a big impact, since I haven't done much of it in years. Should also help lower hr

    My issue with traps is working them drains a lot of energy out of me. Placing them at start means I'm 50% out for the rest of session, if left towards the end then I cannot fire them at all.
