    Have you seen a doctor for that pain?

    I would suggest having some rest days to deal with that pain...

    Nah I haven't yet if it's still causing me trouble next Monday I'll make an appointment. Today was a rest day but my dad asked me to give him a hand moving some furniture and that pain came back quite strong straight away. Fock!

    That's a very informative article about fats and the role they play in maintaining / losing BF. It's very true how society has this mental image on how all fats are bad. It's quite sad really how misinformed people are.

    Day 22
    Rest day today. Was supposed to be leg day today bit I'll have to put that in tomorrow. Had that same pain above my collarbone today helping mum and dad move furniture into their new house. Will have to go see someone about that next days off. Diet was on point today except for the restaurant food that my parents shouted mr for dinner. I'm going to have to get my mind set back on my goal as this last week has not been too good.

    The night shifts are only two or three every ten days so it's not so bad but the 150k a year more than make up for it

    Day 24
    Weight... 187 actually im not worried about this because i brought a pair of scales for home so i thought there might be a variance in weight.... and i had a bad few days last weekso that definately didnt help.
    Today was supposed to be a crdio day but i got to the gym and realised i didnt have my ipod or earphones so did shoulders superset with triceps for volume.

    Tricep pushdowns
    120 x12 x 12 x 12

    Dumbll shrugs

    I did get that pain when doing front raises but it was hardlythere. i will go up and see our Occupational Therapist tomorrow and see f she can shed some light on it for me.

    Day 25
    Burn day. My legs and abs are still quite sore from volume training 2 days ago so steady cardio as the go today. i ran 5kin just over 30 minutes which is ok. it was ridiculously hot. i wassweating before i started runnng. there was no sign of shin splints or the left calve pump at all so i guess the lack of cardio last week helped diet was good today there s a fair bit of whey in there dueto relying on hem at work again. 2333 calories 349g protein 85g carbs 35 fibrous and 71g fats. Macro ratio 59% protein 27% fats and 14% carbs. i still dont know how myfitnesspal works ut carb intake i had zero direct carb sources today and it still says i had 85g carbsminus the 35 fibrous still leaves 50g!! too much or a cardio day!!

    Day 26
    Today Was back for volume.
    Chins
    BW x 10 x 10 x 10

    Lat Pull Downs (iso lateral)
    90 ps x 12 x 12 x 12

    Bent over rows

    30 minutes steady state Cardio at 8kph. Diet has been good the last few days and it's starting to show. Some of my work pants I was struggling to get into are now quite loose so I must be losing BF! Diet today was 341g carbs ( a lot of whey in here due to being on night shift ) 71g fats and 54g carbs 27 fibrous. 2280 calories with a breakdown of 61% protein 29% fats and 10% carbs. Will probably try and increase my fat intake come days off on Monday and do more of a keto style diet. Planning a refeed on Monday of Tuesday. Will have been quite carb depleted for about a week by then.

    Yeah it's actually going good! I haven't lost any weight Over the last 5 days but I have gone down a notch on my belt. Will report weight on Monday. Have been doing plenty of cardio and haven't had any problems with shin splints. But I haven't done any HIIT yet because I don't want to push it. Oh and I ordered my goodies the other day...

    Arm day

    Day 28
    Night shift. Supposed to be a scheduled rest day but I went for a run. About 4k in 20 minutes. Calories are low but I was suppose to be up all night.... I wasn't lol I ended up rolling out my airbed at 2130 and slept till 0500. Getting paid to sleep in awesome. Calories 1662 I'm going to have to delete myfitnesspal and reinstall it because it's playing up. Not giving me my daily summaries. Have decided to give leangains a shot instead of going keto. I have fasted since 2100 last night and won't eat till 1300 today. I will trial this for a week and see how it goes.

    Yeah I am starting to realize that I'm going to have to work around these things and I'm starting to realize what j can and what j can't do. Haha they are supplements but they're not the ones you can buy from a shop. Going to jump on a test cycle with an oral kickstart. Have three vials of test coming and 100 anadrol pills. Should get me back to my former self.

    Day 30.
    Lean gains day two. Today was nowhere near as bad as yesterday. About a hour after waking my hunger passed and i actually went 18hours without food due to having clients at the gym. Still havent sorted my calorie counter but I had wpi, yoghurt, 6 egg omlette and a natty PB sandwich for breakfast at 1500. Just had my second meal of a birthday roast pork and veges . I did have a small piece of cake. I have another birthday dinner tomorrow at a restaurant but I'll try and stay relatively clean.

    Day 31
    Today I had to travel 125 miles to mum and dads house. It's my birthday today so were going out for dinner to a steakhouse. I broke my fast at a shopping centre by having roast beef and three vege. I also had a protein shake and a nut bar. Will be having a big dinner then a smaller meal for my last one of the day.
    I hit chest and triceps today I started light because of the problems I've been having. There was hardly a sign of that pain which is good. I could feel where it was and it was tender to touch but no pain whilst lifting.
    I'll only list my work sets in today's workout.
    Dumbbell chest press
    90s x 11 x 9 x 8

    Incline BB bench
    175 x 11 x 9 x 7

    Chest press machine
    175 x 12 drop 135 x 12
    175 x 12 drop 135 x 12
    225 x 12 drop 175 x 8 drop 135 x 6

    Dumbbell overhead extension
    85 x 11 x 10 x 8

    Skullcrushers
    55 x 8 x 8 x 8
    Close grip ez bar bench press
    55 x 8 x 6 x 6

    Rope pushdowns
    60 x 10 x 9 x 8

    Took it pretty easy but still hD a good pump and I reduced rest periods to keep my heartrate up. Had a few too many carbs tonight I think but I'll be doing cardio every day from now until Sunday so I'm sure that'll take care of it

    Why do you do shoulder presses on smith machine? y not barbell presses or even machine presses (they are similar to smith machine presses but I prefer doing machine presses over smith machine presses)? Ain't Tbar rows and Bent over barbell rows kindda same? Y not do only one of em and put rest of the effort on other remaining exercises?

    I do smith machine straight after I do dumbbells so I need the safety since my training partner (130 lb) female can't really spot me on a barbell. The shoulder press machine at my gym Is FOCKED. it just feels really awkward. Yeah TBar and bent over rows are similar but most rowing movements are similar and those are the two where I can lift the most and let's be honest who doesn't like lifting heavy :P

    Day 33
    Not much going on today i will sort out my calorie counter this weekend so I can start tracking my diet again. Today is an off day I won't actually be exercising until Monday. Still getting hunger pangs all day until I break my fast. Bcaas don't do much to help it either. I'm down another 2lb my bodyfat calipers should ve here on Monday so I should get an aroundabout figure of where I'm at.
