Yeah, it is pretty gnarly for an ancient tale.

Living in Yaxley and mostly training (trained) for kickboxing over the last 18 months.
Though, I'm sporting what seems to be a never-going-away back issue, that gets brought on my excessive twisting. Not sure how much more I can give to combat sports.

You are looking lean, dude.

Healthy is good though. 15-20 years from now, you'll be stronger still (maybe) but your heart will thank you for it.

back issues suck. dont give up on it tho. touch wood my back has been pretty solid of late with a few technical adjustments to my training - and thats after years of it popping fairly regularly.

yeh unlike gilgamesh I dont want to live forever. but...I have plenty of s**t to do so gotta keep the engine maintained.

good stuff. mate, theres nothing I can tell you that you dont already know. only thing ive learned lately is that im too old and broken down to train heavy hardly at all. only hit it hard now for a couple of sessions every three weeks. everything else is medium to light work.

Hi Will,

Nice to hear from you again.

I'm a thick t**t - this we know - and wondered if the /10 ratings were RPE, or how you feel the lift is in relation to where you want to be?

hey man. maybe im the thick one..had to look up RPE. yes its that concept im using. im using a medium/light/heavy training cycle and using the scores to make sure the weights are set correctly. trying to keep the light at 5-6, medium at 7, heavy 8-9. for example, I hit an 9 on fronts on my last heavy week which is too early in this build up and not in line with my deads so I dropped each weeks weights 5kg.

I had to look up RPE too Grin

Done any Inch DBing recently? I dusted mine off a few months ago (pre appendicitis) and was very rusty on it. In fact, my left arm had a less than 50% success rate!

not for over a year. did the 78 back then and I would guess it wouldnt take that long to get back to that. cleans are my weakness now with ftoh and they dont matter so much on the db.
