A blender is easily cleaned. Blueberries, blackberries, cherries and peaches can be bought in every supermarket in any season, I buy them in jars because I'm not a millionaire either. Goji berries are sold dried at those hippie stores, they have flaxseed as well. I make smoothies for three or four days, and put them in small plastic bottles that I take with me to the gym. It doesn't get much easier than that.

I get paid on the 25th, if I can find a blender that's easy to clean I'll give the smoothies a go.

Here's a reasonably accurate list of what I can do at the moment....

Deadlift: 130kg
Squat: 80kg (haven't done these in a while, I made 90 before but I'll say 80 for now).
Bench: 90kg
Pull-ups: 6
Chin-ups: 9
Military Press: 50kg



Forgot all about this thread.


Current records:-

Deadlift:- 152.5kg
Squat:- 120kg
Bench:- 105kg for 2 reps.
Miltary press:- 65kg for 2 reps.

Chins and Pull-ups are about the same as last time. I've gained weight and strength.

65kg military press for 3 reps. Still can't do a single rep on 67.5kg though, which is ****ing strange.

Bench press: I did 3 reps on 100kg then dropped down and did 82.5kg for 3x8 with no spotter.

Finally went to see the doctor about my back and he's referred me for physio.

OHP again today. Finally managed that rep on 67.5kg that I've been failing on for a couple of weeks now, dropped down for 3x5 on 52.5kg after (I'm moving this up to 55kg in the next couple of weeks). Well happy.

The physio's given me a set of exercises to do twice a day, I had an ultrasound session for about ten minutes, I've got to change my posture when sitting, and I'm back to see him on the 5th of Jan to see if there's been any improvements.

Just weighed myself for the first time since Champ weighed me about a year ago. I'm 14st 9lbs.

I hit the magic 15st a couple of days ago.

Setting a few long-term targets:-


Run 3 miles in 25 minutes.
Do a muscle-up.
Do 5x5 with 110kg of plates on the leg press (not sure what the slider weighs).
15 wide-grip pullups (second time I've set this target and I've never done more than 7).
Do ten 2 minute rounds on my heavybag.
Learn to skip again.
Learn to swim better.
Maintain a 1RM of at least 100kg on bench and at least 65kg on OHP.
Continue my physio until my back's good to go, then restart squats and deadlifts.
Resting heart rate down to the mid 50s.
Have a pop at climbing. I've found some sort of centre within 30 mins of my house that does indoor and outdoor climbing.

Erm, that's it for now, I'll add any others I think of.

Jus ran a mile in 9 mins 20 secs. Obviously that's dogshit compared to you lot but I'm happy because I didn't even know I could run a mile and it gives me something to improve on.

Also did 5x5 on:-

50kg OHP
90kg + slider on leg press
35kg one armed dumbell rows.

Glen came to the gym today, and we decided to try our bench max. First time I've had a spotter for about 4 months and managed 112.5kg, which is 5kg more than my previous best. ****ing chuffed with that.

Cheers mate.

I never thought I'd be able to bench 120kg, but I genuinely think I might have done 115kg yesterday if I'd skipped a few of the sets and gone up a bit quicker. Just a shame that I'm this close when I'm cutting back on strength stuff and doing cardio instead really, I think my bench will only get worse over the next few months.
