Welcome back! Everything changes. Lots of us in the group have had to adapt our methods due to change in the last little while too. Don't worry about what you're doing as long as you're doing something.

Glad to have you back Badger.

 

Sounds like you've got a good plan in place.

 

Like we always say, Adapt or Die!

Thanks guys good to be back. I've had a quick look through the logs and there's a few different routines going about. Good to see everyone adapting and staying on the righteous path!
I must admit, although some things change my weakness for cheese and chocolate biscuits has not. Its been getting the better of me lately. Need to tighten that up again. I'm out for beers with an old pal on Saturday, then after that it's back to my fitnesspal and discipline.

Shouldn't be any shame in enjoying things that taste good. It's just too bad the things that taste the best tend to stick around the middle.

Yeah, I take too many tastes that's the problem. Its when I'm doing Uni work later at night and the wife goes to her bed. I've been treating that as open season on the kids snack tin.

I've come up with a cunning plan tonight though. Anytime I get the urge to chow down on some sugary delights I'm gonna do some KB swings instead. We'll see how it goes next week!

Stu, not sure if your being sarcastic or if it's been lost in translation due to the UK / US versions of biscuits.

I mean this type of biscuit - https://www.ocado.co...obnobs/38383011


For a long time I could never get my head round it, when in a John Grisham novel, someone would be having biscuits and ham for breakfast! I just put it down to the Joey Tribiani way of thinking - biscuits, good. Ham, good. Biscuits and ham gooood!

11/03/19 (Evening) -

Swim – 30 lengths x 25m - 19:53 minutes

Cardio - eliptical - 3 miles , 30:00

Both carried out at different locations during my daughters different lessons. This is the first week of this and I'm just figuring it out. My cardio is lacking just now, so maybe 30 mins on the cardio. Machine is what I should be doing for a month or so, but my gut feeling is Kettlebell Swings would fit in nicely in the second slot. Something to ponder

when in doubt, swing.

Craig Marker would tell you 10 powerful swings, emom style and vary your emom lengths in waves.

Machine is a good choice if you're just trying to increase cardiovascular capacity. Kettlebell swings would be a better choice for all the benefits of cardio AND strength training in a single session. Go for the swings. Add some get-ups and you'll earn those chocolate biscuits.

18/03/19 (am) TB Fighter C1, Wk2, day 2

Squat (paired with pullups 5, 5, 5, 5, 5)
5 x 5
70Kg

Bench Press (paired with BB rows 8 x 35Kg)
5 x 5
60Kg


(pm) -

Swim – 30 lengths x 25m - 20:40 minutes


(pm)

Jacobs ladder (2-3 mins RI)
6 mins, 562 ft
3 mins, 288 ft
3 mins, 290 ft
3 mins, 276 ft
3 mins, 290 ft

No Kettlebells heavier than 12kg at gym. There must be somewhere, but I was short on time, so I'll investigate further. I was going to tackle the Airdyne, but I'll be honest - after Squats in the morning and swimming after work, along with my current fitness level, it was the last thing I wanted to do!
