beza said:Why can't you get to the gym at all mate? Just a quick visit on a weekend? Hope alls well with the little un


I can, my gym is in my garage.
But training so rarely I feel the need to push myself, lift heavier than is smart, and I pay for it. As well as not enjoying the session. I just can't get interested in lifting light either.

Also, push pressing hurts my lower back, squatting med-heavy hurts my knees, and I can't get out of my head that my s**t DL form is ruining me.

Whereas doing this is making me feel better mentally and physically. Helping me become more flexible, more agile and my daughter really wants to join in. I feel much better about this as her DL form is terrible too. Happy
Plus I'm sure BW training will do her good.

Also, I'm falling in love with the progressions. There seems to be a never ending line of more difficult moves to try. Rather than chasing a number.

I intend to start DL squat and strict press after my comp, very light, building very gradually focusing on form.

I'll look it up.
I've read 'raising the bar' and 'convict conditioning' - not sure on the later, but it has good progressions to get the Mrs involved to help with post baby weight loss.

**Caution. You are about to read a very boring log.**

So after baby number 2 arrived training became very rare. Offen once a week, for less than half hour. This left me very moody, as I was not getting to do what I wanted....

So I have had a change of perspective. With a goal of keeping myself healthy, and training using my bodyweight. I spent 8 on a door pull up bar, and 5 on some parallets. 10-15 mins in the evening at the moment.


I'm down to 80.6kg and looking to do u80 SM next year. But for now I'm very happy doing what I'm doing.

I have one last comp on July 4th which I'll be 15kg underweight for.

**This log will contain occasional lifting**

May put them on eBay, see what they go for. Like I said will throw in pallets with them.

Thought that was pretty cheap as a set of 3 stones is over 300.

I have 3 atlas stones, 77,92,125.
Thinking of selling them.

They are homemade (by the owner of my gym), they have craters, a mould join ring around, and a nub where the mould was overfilled. But they have been well used, without tacky mainly, except the 125 as it is very smooth and only been lifted a few times, they all seem pretty solid.

They are not comp standard for sure, but great for training.

No idea how much to sell them for tho. 120 for all three??

Also have pallets for loading them on to. About 41" high.

Training has really dropped off at the mo.

Been doing bw sessions.
Loads of dips and pull-ups leg raises press ups etc.

BW is down to 83.9kg, down from 89.7 in the last 6 weeks.
Taking advantage of my situation by doing IF. According to my scales down to 22% fat from 27.

Hate to think what it was when I was 96/97ish at Xmas.
