hoping for some advice

Recommended Posts

spend some extra bucks and stay in a hotel with a gym.

 

That's what I've been doing.

 

Actually I've got a work trip to Melb coming up. Maybe I'll hire car it to PTC. :D

if you are 81kg now, why is your goal to get under 80kg by the end of the year?

 

Move those goal post a little.

 

or make it your goal by 30/03/2009

2kg in 4 weeks should be doable.

ha-ha, what a laugh this has been to read..................

 

So six years on have I learnt anything?....................let’s just say I can see why some people got/get so frustrated by some of the comments/posts people make...........

 

We are so brainwashed by the media though and what people think/perceive is healthy it’s ridiculous, the low fat foods / diets drive me insane............

 

I don't diet but if people want to put a label on what I eat I basically follow the paleo diet and eat gluten free (I never touch anything with wheat these days) and I feel the best I ever have. Use a lot of coconut oil and butter when cooking.

 

 

I'm now 30 (yep jus had the big 3.0)

 

I now maintain a pretty steady 80kgs~

 

I have and still do mix up my training to keep things interesting and hopefully not stagnate.............I 'Strongman' train once week and depending on the programme I'm doing I weight train 3-4 times a week.

 

I can’t remember what my maxes were back in the day or if I even did them but I’ve just cracked the 200KG deadlift, 150KG Squat… Reasonably happy with leg stuff but got some work to do on upper body……..

 

 

Over the past few years I’ve done quite a few of the common programmes, 10 x 10’s, 5 x 5’s etc…….

 

 

I have a squat/power rack that I’ve built at home and apart from ‘Strongman’ training I always train at home usually by myself, I do very little isolation exercises, more fully body exercise (dead’s, squats, overhead press, clean and press, barbell rows, chinups etc………..)

 

The biggest thing I have found though over the years which has been mentioned over and over on here is that diet and recovery are so important and I know when I was younger I kinda scoffed at those comments………

 

Never been a heavy drinker but I certainly used to enjoy my Friday and Saturday nights, these days I hardly touch the stuff maybe had 4/5 drinks in total last year, that has certainly helped my training.
