    Started training again on sunday, Its been about 4 weeks since i injured myself but its feeling a lot looser, so thought i'd see how i got on.

    Sunday, did a 3 mile run and felt fresh. no pain, and did it in around 25 mins. i usually run 3 miles in 18 mins so not happy but happy if that makes sense :D
    finished with a 3 sets of 10 pull-ups in the park at the end of the run.

    On monday i just did a light shake out, 3 x 3s on the bag, 6 x 3s skipping, then burpee's, squats, squat-thrusts, tuck jumps etc to finish. did 30 seconds of each. Again, no pain.

    Yesterday i did a weights workout.
    20 reps with 15kg bar, followed by: military press: (DBs and barbell) 10 sets of 10 with 25kg
    Then, 10 reps at 30kg, 10 at 40, 10 at 45 and finished with 4 sets of 15 reps with 30kg.
    Barbell curls: 10 sets of 10 with 25kg.
    concentrate curls:10 x 10 with 15kg DBs, followed by 10 x 10s of incline DB curls with the same weight. finished with 3 sets of 10 chin-ups (slow) and circuit training, press-ups, sit-ups, burpees etc (30 secs each)

    Feeling good, no pain. should be back to normal in no time :good

    Nice one. how come your dropping rounds next week, so's not to rush the injury like? i've not sparred yet, figure i'll wait til next week and ease myself back into training first. there's a couple of lads who will take the **** if i'm not on form :D

    Been busy but still training. making good gains on the weights, squat 75kg, bench 85-90kg, deadlift 140kg, OH 65-70kg. doing a lot of hill sprints and got my times back running, 3 miles in around 18 mins and 5 miles in around 40 mins. circuit training on non weights days and i'm doing 120 pull ups/chin ups every day(4 sets of 30) feeling good. no pain at all now except new little niggles here and there that get ironed out easy enough with a massage.

    Just out of curiosity, what's your height/weight. If memory serves me well you're a big man, right?

    I'm 6'2 and around 14st 8lbs at the moment mate. ive been bigger, but with no work at the moment and the training ive been doing in the last month or so to get my heart/lungs back in shape, ive trimmed down a bit.

    When i'm lifting weights regular and working (construction) i usually go up to around 15 an a half to 16st.

    I consider the weight i'm at right now to be my fighting weight though. fast and strong. (it used to be around the super-middle limit, but age is a ******* eh? :D)

    Rested today and yesterday, due to being ill with stomach flu mostly, but also to let my body recover a little as ive been training virtually every day for the last month.

    But i intend to beast myself mercilessly tomorrow!

    weights in the morning and cardio in the afternoon, probably circuit training followed by a run.

    Eat raw garlic, bacterias can't stand it. And unlike antibiotics there isn't **** they can do about it by mutating.
