Thanks guys.

The deadlifting debacle seems to have done my back in, so squat day didn't happen at all. Oh, and overhead press day had to be today, instead of the usual Thursday, which means I only...

Thanks Thomas, dlocas, Ravi.


Today's session was a disaster. Got to 140kg with deadlifts, and it didn't feel right at all, so I stopped. Did a bit of back work (pullups, etc.) and called it...

"Cardio" doesn't kill strength gains. Or muscles. Insufficient food/water/nutrients/sleep might well do so, however.

So, with that in mind, I try to eat, drink and sleep accordingly, given that I...
