    Hey!

    DO IT. The only way you'll ever truly live the lifestyle you want. Its hard to do working for someone else. Each one brings their positives of course, I just think its important to be flexible and try some things out!

    Good day today - eating has been relaxed as its a training day. I went for lunch with my Dad and then ate a tasty thai green curry for my evening meal. Need to make sure I keep protein high on training days as relaxed eating normally means high carb, low protein for me.

    Training was aight. Right now I am just cranking out sets of 3 x 8-10 and taking it easy in prep for HCT-12 in a week or so.

    Front Pull down - 3 x 10 @ 60KG

    DB Row - 3 x 8 @ 24KG DBs

    Flat BB Bench - 3 x 8 @ 60KG

    Seated DB Shoulder Press - 3 x 8 @ 16KG DBs

    Lying DB tricep extensions - 3 x 10 @ 10KG DBs.

    Job done. Now just gotta hold down thurs and fri as low carb and then have a good training and big eating weekend!

    Ok, last week a write off but I am still fighting to pull some consistency together and I have now booked a holiday to Ibiza, Spain so I better get my ass in gear and come in reasonably lean.

    Yesterday I started HCT-12 properly. The 6+2+2+2 felt pretty good actually. Fairly easy but I am still shifting some light weights, once they get up there it will kick my ass I am sure.

    Front Pull down: 6+2+2+2 @ 65KG

    DB Rows: 6+2+2+2 @ 28KG DBS

    BB Bench: 6+2+2+2 @ 60KG

    Seated DB O/H press: 6+2+2+2 @ 22KG DBS

    Lying Tricep Extensions: 6+2+2+2 @ 12KG DBS

    As for food, I am keeping things simple. High Carb on my 3 training days, low carb everything else. Using fitday to track things and using an IF approach.

    Yesterday I kept my cal's at 2,585 - 75g fat, 265 carbs and 220 protein - not bad.

    Bought a car too last week.

    Work is going well - everything feels good right now, just gotta pull this fitness **** together.

    Yep, I’m looking forward to seeing how the 6+2+2+2 thing pans out – it felt great yesterday though.

    I’m with you on the car stuff, a sure fast way to lose money quick! Since I was 25 I’ve paid hard cash for my cars and am not prepared to go into debt for them or anything for that matter (other than my mortgage!).

    Still got the A3, need to find it a home. My GF keeps asking for it but I think I’ll just sell it to offset the money dumped into the M3 lol

    Thanks for popping in Kiff!

    Sat - lower body + biceps

    Front Squat - 3 x 8 @ 45KG
    RDL - 4 x 10 @ 70KG
    Leg Extensions - 3 x 8 (each leg) @ 40KG
    Standing Bi Curls - 1 x 5+2+2+2 @ 16KG DBS

    I am skipping HCT-12 for lower body as going low reps has always given me injuries but once I get my strength up and am less stiff I may give it a shot.

    Lower body workout still needs some thought - will do a better one for next week. I am thinking hip thrusts/step ups throw in too. Don't see the point in working calves really right now.
