Hi All, as I start my road from recovery I thought it would be good to start a training log.

I currently train at Pro Strength & Fitness in Swindon, an excellent gym kitted out with lots of powerlifting/strongman equipment and blessed with top class lifters like Big Loz who is great for motivation/advice.

2015 has been up and down due to a recurring back/hip injury; because of this I decided to stop powerlifting for 6 months to recharge and decided to focus on cutting body fat. I dropped from 103/4 to 88 kg, and am currently sitting in the low 90s without losing too much muscle, it took me to cut to realise I was carrying a lot of crap weight!

Following successful sports therapy & mobility work I want to get back on the platform in 2016 and compete in a tested fed (ABPU or BDPFA) at 90 or 100 kg.

Here's my first proper deadlift session (since May/June) from yesterday:

Median stance sumo deads: 180x3, 220x3, 240x3, 250x3, 260x3, 220x8(torn callus @9)
Conventional deads: 100x3x10 (sets x reps)
Tricep/Quad isolation work
