  5. Run yesterday. 2.1km in total. Nailed the first 1km in 5mins. Speed was 14km/h for the first few minutes then bumped it up to 17km/h. Stopped after the first 1km and had a rest for a couple minutes then done the 1.1km, a bit slower this time, more slowing to a walk a couple times. Finished off pretty fast. I much prefer short runs sprinting than a long one..guess I’ll have to change that and get used to it!

    Also done 90 sit ups and 70 press ups before my run, sets of 20 and 30s.


    Motivation is still great. Always looking forward to the next workout. Hours this week are good, pretty much got thurs to Sunday off apart from two 3 hour shifts thurs and sat in the morning.

    No doms today at all

    Libido – way to many dirty thoughts

    Appetite – After cardio my appetite was just stupid the rest of the day. I was constantly eating and just couldn’t satisfy my hunger!

    I’m also out of Neovar now – after a good 10 months run (I loved the $15 NP sale) I’m missing it already!

    I will do legs at some point this week!

  6. Day 23


    Woke up this morning thinking it was Friday for some reason! Breakfast this morning was poor, a protein shake and 2 weetabix. Took awhile to get out of bed. Had plenty food for work so I ate most of my shift since it was quiet My 12-6 turned into a 12-9 since some new guy decided not to show up. Apparently he has swine flu but was sitting drinking in another pub last night. That’ll be him sacked!

    So today ended up being a day off was looking forward to upping my 40 lengths to 100. But the pool shuts at 8.

    Cals have been good for the day.

    Motivation good.

    Doms in my abs today and kinda sore legs, heavy like. I thought my abs would be 1000 times worse. Ain’t to shabby!

    chest early tomorrow morning!

  7. Managed to get up at 7am this morning! i did wake up at half 5 then went back to sleep thinking i wouldn't get up at 7 but i managed. just having breakfast. 4 weetabix, a banana and a protein shake. I'd prefer oats but weetabix are so much easier to get down when short on time, some raisins too!

    Motivation is sky high, looking forward to smashing chest!

  11. Day 24


    Chest

    Flat bench

    2x5
    2x5 (+5kg increase)
    1x4 (+10 kg increase)

    Incline

    2x6
    1x4 (failed last rep)
    1x5 (failed last rep)


    Close grip

    1x4 (+5kg and failed last rep)
    1x9 (failed rep 10 )
    1x7 (failed rep 8)
    1x12

    Strength – first 4 sets were easy as pie, failed the last rep on the 5th set though. Strength throughout was great.

    The workout was just awesome.

    Pump – chest and tri’s rock solid when I was done, my arms look soo much bigger when my tri’s are nice and pumped!

    Nausea from the alpha-x combined with the rpm stim effect was quite something. Energy was brilliant considering it was 9am and I never workout at this time in the morning. Nice sunny day on the way to the gym as well.

    Libido – high

    Motivation is high!

    I have a spot on my nose…when I try to yawn it hurts and then it cancels the yawn out! Very annoying!

    No doms today!

    I had plenty to say earlier but now I’m just tired and want to watch buffy.

    Pool tomorrow!

    good old top gun :P

  12. Day 25


    went swimming last night. Managed 85 lengths before the pool shut. really wanted to get to 100 but had no time left pretty knackered afterwards!

    had two people yesterday telling me i look slimmer in the face/neck and waist

    bought some new trainers this morning - about time!

    Sleep has been dodgy the last few nights, i keep waking up 2-3 hours before my alarm. roughly after 6 hour sleep. really annoying!

    crap thing is though that both gyms are within a few hundred metres of each other.

    The one thats closest to the river is still open.. all the cardio machines have been moved out so no running today, i'll see if i'll manage chest in 2 inches of water !

  17. Day 26


    If I were to rate my last two back workouts the one last week would be a 1 out of 10 and today’s being a solid 8!

    Another brilliant workout this evening.

    Back and bi’s

    Deadlifts

    2x10
    1x5
    1x5
    1x4 (+15kg)
    1x3 (+10kg)
    1x5

    Bent over rows

    3x6
    2x6 (+10kg)
    1x6

    Pull-ups
    8/8/4/6

    Barbell curls
    3x21’s

    Db lat row
    3x8 (+5)

    Shrugs
    3x8

    40 press ups and 50 sit-ups

    Pump – awesome pump, bi’s and back just feeling solid

    Libido – if the wind blows it’s up

    Strength – Pretty awesome, my grip was slightly crap, sweaty hands. Always mean to get some chalk! 100kg seemed easy on deads, managed to get past 110kg for 4 reps, which I would never do. 5th rep and my grip slipped and failed. Weight up on bent over rows too.

    Motivation awesome – I’m going to have to watch I don’t end up over training. I don’t think that’s going to happen, I’m eating tons still Diet has been all clean the last 4 days!

    I forgot to mention my doms from chest day. Normally it would be a good 3-4 days of pain. Half a day of a slight ache and that was it! I should be in pieces tomorrow after tonight’s workout. We’ll see what happens!

    Up at 7am tomorrow, run at 9am then work at 12 till 3. Shoulders in the evening and a proper hammering of the core if I can manage.

    3kg of bulk bcaa’s shipping soon, I’ll off load this xtend to a mate I think! Another run on Sunday morning if I’m feeling good. Definitely doing legs in the evening, off on Monday and chest this Tuesday.

    I won’t be happy if I don’t manage to run 2miles tomorrow.

    If you've not seen "Stick it" i say go watch it now!

  20. Day 27 Part 1


    First 1.1km at 12km/h

    Started off great, was going fine then got a stitch so had to stop. Had 4-5minute rest then got going again. 14km/h this time till I got to 1km and the stitch came back again, up to 18km/h for a minute then stopped at 1.1km again.

    5 minute break then done 1.8km at 12km/h, walking for 2mins twice. Last minute and a half speed up to 14.5km/h then last 30secs 16.5km/h. took 10mins for the 1.8km.

    So 4km in total! Pissed off about getting the stitch though, doesn’t normally happen!

    When those happen I just slow to a pace where I'm still jogging, but I'm not walking. Push yourself through those things. They suck but they're gonna happen from time to time.

    Nah, just getting used to cardio. I'm in the same boat, learning as I go.

  24. Trick when you get a stitch is to keep control of your breathing. Usually when you have to stop it's because you're tensing up and breathing irregularly because of the stitch. If you keep your breathing under control take 2 or 3 km/h off the speed and keep going until you get your second wind and then wind it back on again.

  25. Before i got into this lifting heavy things business i used to run cross-countrybelieve it or not so i've got a wee bit of experience on this.

    Don't fill your stomach with liquids prior to cardio. The old theories on getting a stitch are that either:-

    1. fluids that are slow to be digest are causing the stomach to pull on ligaments that connect it to the diaphragm, or
    2. a reduction in the blood supply to the diaphragm, as the blood is needed elsewhere, which leads to the diaphragm cramping.

    New research however suggests that as you ran gravity pulls your liver down and as you increasingly exhale the diaphragm pushes up, pulling on the ligaments attached below the diaphragm to the liver, therefore the combined forces give you the 'stitch'.

    In terms of helping it, controlled breathing helps, i.e. breathing out for longer than you breathe in (out for 3 steps in for 5, that sort of thing) , but so does pushing firmly just below the stitch, or stop running and touch your toes.

    Diaphragm strengthening exercises such as DB pullovers and power breathing are supposed to help as well
