    Bugger mate, sorry to hear that. Problems at home can certainly drain you, but you're right, gym should help get you focused.

    Still not quite back to normal with regard to diet, training or life in general really. Just rolling with sporadic 'whatever I feel like' type workouts until I can get back to a normal routine.

    Just get in as and when you feel like it, bud. Getting in sporadically is still far better than not at all!

    Same here, been going with the flow and doing 'whatever' lately, not really a bad deal either.
