Boar said:whats the covid situation over there at the moment ?

its a f**king pain in the asshole over here for sure.

plus excellent benching, which you have always been good at.


There are still a few cases, with masks being mandatory for buildings. Cypriots being Cypriots, nobody wears one in the village except for when you go to banks. Municipal/Govt buildings = no mask, no entry. Having said that, I was in a govt building yesterday to sort out my gran's water bills and the woman behind the desk wasn't wearing a mask or covering her mouth but instead decided to cough in my face. Also, my gran left the hose on so as soon as her water came on, a month's worth all went to one aubergine. I might rip them up later.

Cheers for the bench compliment. I have monkey arms and i'm s**t at squats/deads with an average bench, so it all comes in line nicely. My bench has always responded well to volume, and I have gained about 6kg in 2-3 weeks, so that's probably why it's started moving.

Day 3 % reps sets
1.Squat 50 5 1
60 5 1
70 5 4 - 115kg. Fairly easy.
2.Bench press 50 5 1
60 4 1
70 3 1
80 2 2
85 1 2 102kg
80 2 2
Bench was silly easy so I did 5s at 70, 75, 88, 90, 95 some singles at 100, 105, 110, 115,
3.Pecs 8 5 - 3 sets of hammer grip bench with 35s, 2 sets of flyes with 17.5s
4.Biceps 8 5 - Hammer curls with 20s, 25s, 27.5s, 30s, 25s, 20s
5.Hyperextensions 8 4 60, 65, 65, 65kg

I woke up at 5:30am and was feeling wrecked. Bench was pretty snappy, I am probably on 125kg plus atm, and that's training 4 times a week, with a ton of sets prior to that, having woken up at stupid o'clock. Didn't exactly set up like mad either. I'm gonna up it to 125kg as the prescribed weights aren't testing me at all.

Day 2 % reps sets

1.3sec paused bench press 50 3 1
60 3 1
70 3 1
75 2 4 Supposed to be 90kg but I did 100kg instead. Need a bit of a challenge and it's all feeling a bit too easy

2.Deadlift to the knees + full deadlift 50 3+1 1
60 3+1 1
70 3+1 1 125
75 2+1 4 supposed to be 135 but I did 140. As above, pretty easy. All DOH not even wrapping thumbs. Oh, I also used the smaller plates so it was about 1-2" deficit

3.Lats 8 5 - neutral grip pullups from a dead hang. Last set was 7+1

4.Medial delts 6 5 - 15kg, held at the top for a second

5.Leg press 5 5 - 5x5 would probably aggravate my knees to I did 5x20, which aggravated my stomach and nearly threw up a few times. Fun.

Week 3
Day 1 % reps sets
1.Squat 50 5 1
60 4 1
70 3 1 110kg
80 2 4 130kg for 4 doubles

2.Bench press 50 3 1
60 3 1
70 3 1
80 2 4 96kg - too light so i did 4 doubles with 100kg after a double with 96
3.Squat 55 3 1
65 3 1
75 3 4 120kg for 4 triples. Not the same aggressiveness as the previous 4 sets, but this was 8 work sets of squats, plus warmups

4.Triceps lying 8reps x 4sets 8 5 - I did hammer grip bench with 35kg dumbbells, I may have done 5 sets.

5.Goodmorning 5reps x 4sets 8 5. 5x8 or 4x5? I did 5 sets of 8 with 60kg. Weight was easy but my hamstrings felt like they were going to tear. Pants flexibility under load. I can touch my toes easily, but these always give me issues.

I went fishing this morning and got there before sunset. I decided to stay in the car as it was cold outside. Night times it gets down to 20 degrees, and it sometimes dips below 30 during the day!

Sounds very hunter gatherer, which I like a lot.


The whole island outside of city centres are like that. I have my potatoes growing, olives, onions, garlic, tomatoes. The economy here is so bad that I'd probably starve to death if I had to buy everything I wanted to eat. On the plus side, I enjoy waking up at 5:30am and spending hours by the sea with nothing/nobody to annoy me. Pure tranquility.

How big was the grouper? Donít they grow to enormous size?


They do grow to about 50kg, but the one I had was only a lil' guy. 1lb or so, but it's still noms and there are LOADS of them about. Zero trawlers here, nobody buys fish from a market either. You either eat what you catch, or eat something else.

Yesterday I boiled up a bunch of big blue swimming crabs I caught the night before. Cooked 300g spaghetti and made a sauce with cream, egg, onion, garlic, and 7 blue crabs. Came out to 5 big plates, one of which was given to a neighbour. At night I ate a white grouper that was caught sleeping in the shallows, so I netted him too. A good day in all.

Today it was chicken and potato meatball things, then ordered a large meat feast pizza.

Day 3 % reps sets
1.Squat with 2sec pause on the halfway down 50 3 1
60 3 1 95kg
70 3 5 115kg
2.Bench press with bands 50 4 1
60 4 1 80kg
65 4 5 85kg
3.Pecs 8reps x 5sets - I think pecs means flyes as db press is referred to as such later on in the book. I'm not the one who translated the damn book.
4.Triceps pushdowns 8reps x 5sets
5.Hyperextensions 8reps x 4sets

Squats left me covered in sweat even though they weren't that hard. 38 degrees during the day, goes down to 30 degrees after midnight. Was still well into the 30s when I was training. My appetite has gone into overdrive on this routine.
