I have updated it as requested.

Operation: Power Belly remains based on milk however. Vegans are best referring to Operation: Apes**t.

Well I do intend to take over Rick's Wilks at some point Grin

I've definitely put some size on my legs in the last month, as well as my back. However my power belly is definitely getting bigger. I am consuming a lot of calories.

We don't really realise how lucky we are getting to see him doing that 3 times a week.

Wait until he starts using the treadmill.

Pretty solid session, solid board pressing. The single was a joke.

Went for a little pull-up competition with Haris, managed +20 easy. +30 was debatable as to whether I locked out or not. I do have it on video. Considering I've put on several KGs since I last did +30 I'm pleased anyway.

The biceps session was fcuking funny again. My arms feel dead. I have videos. Lots of videos. They will be unleashed soon.

Possibly my best session ever - 400lb deadlift/4 plate barrier broken which takes me to a 400kg total.

Weighed in at 93.8kg (14s 11lbs).

The warmup set at 50 on front squats felt so funny after just pulling that deadlift - I felt like I was flying!

If he dies, he dies Wink

The seperation of raw/equipped is something I've thought about - I may do it by individual lifts or just as a whole, then let people filter it how they want on the ladder. At the minute I've just asked people to put their RAW PBs in..

By the way, if you fancy writing any articles let me know (e.g. 'The Art of Not Going to Failure') - you have my address. We're aiming to get some really high quality content on here that all the other sites lack.

Funny as fcuk session tonight. Went a bit mad on biceps with Haris and Rick, doing the stupidest exercises we could think of. Seeing Joni do a triple drop set with the ez bar/band exercise was hilarious.

Oh, and I almost managed to consume more calories than I burnt whilst on the cross trainer.

Very productive session, worked hard on my squat form and changed it quite significantly - much wider stance and concentrating on using the hips poperly at the end. 120 was a very smooth rep. 125 was easy weight-wise but not quite as sexy. Good stuff though.

Oh - must rush to the Sugden Barbell Powerlifting League and update my total. Get signed up and add your info anyone whos interested!

Nice one on starting a log mate, should be interesting to see your progress.

The biceps curls tonight were great fun. Regular Friday night feature from now on Grin

Seeing Rick curling an EZ bar with a band attached to it and a headband on will remain with me for sometime.

Feel the future. Feel the pump.

I will not rest until I have Dr. Rick biceps slabs.

Welcome to The Legend of Toothpick

About My Training

Dabbling with weights for 3 years now. Have been powerlifting (and thus training properly!) for two years. Started lifting weights in a little health club in the small village of Mawdesley. Now training primarily at Adlington Barbell club, after recently doing most of my lifting at the Sugden Centre (the university gym for Manchester). I pop into Catt's gym in Orrell occasionally.

Training is geared towards competing in BWLA competitions, 2008 will be my last as a junior.

Hope you enjoy reading the log. Please do register and leave any comments if you have any, all input is appreciated.

Current PBS and Overview

SQUAT: 182.5
BENCH: 110
DEAD: 205
TOTAL: 497.5 (Unequipped)

30th October 2007

After significant weight loss over the summer (from 107 to 90 kilos), I am currently getting my strength back up to where it was pre-weight loss and am aiming for bench/deadlift PBs around Christmas or sometime soon after.

Haven't been able to squat with any proper weight for quite a long time due to ongoing groin problems unfortunately.

You can now start comment threads regarding all articles on the site including videos.

I felt this to be important in case of any more earth-shattering stories like Rick visiting Abduls.

Rick informs me that the kebab is actually quite healthly.

Grilled lean protein apparently.
