Day 33: Weights – Rest Day, Cardio – 25 min Low Intensity x 2

Even though it’s Friday this project won’t do itself. And similar to yesterday It’s unlikely I will make it to the Gym. I had initially planned on Back & Biceps tonight but that will not happen. Between work, gym & home life it’s all about getting the balance right. You can’t neglect any one of these. I got home late from work but honestly probably did have enough time to make the gym if I really wanted to. However Continue reading


Day 32: Weights – Rest Day, Cardio: 25 min Low Intensity x 2

I am absolutely up the walls at work. Today is a non training day from a weights perspective but I still need to get my cardio in. I know from yesterday that I’m probably going to be working late again this evening so I need to plan ahead a little. I am tired but the pre planning will mean I get my cardio in despite not really having time to do it.

My commute to work usually takes Continue reading

It’s Wednesday¬†evening of the gym programme,¬†after the long weekend. Motivation is low. I worked another 10 hour day at work so I’ll be getting to the gym late this evening.

“Triceps T-shirt fillers, Biceps lady killers….”

I think everybody to a certain extent wants to have large defined Biceps, although the Triceps supply the majority of size it’s really the popping Biceps that are sought after by so many Gym goers.

A number of years ago a noticed an inconsistency between my left arm Biceps and my right arm, I couldn’t figure it out at the time but my left Biceps seemed to pop more off the bone on the outside of my shoulder. I thought initially because maybe I was right handed I wasn’t challenging that arm as much and although I was doing the same weight with both arms it was challenging my left arm more and producing the pop. I was training with my older brother at the time and he just seemed to have it, his biceps from the outside really popped and I recall him mentioning that “I just didn’t have the definition…all about definition” (The f**ker), but he was right, his were popping and mine were not! At least not as much. I shrugged it off and figured it would develop if I just kept training over the next few years. Continue reading

Day 30: Weights – Shoulders & Traps, Cardio – 25 min Low Intensity

Day 30…tough going. I’m just about recovered for the alcohol but today I am back to work and it’s hectic. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those long short weeks at work, where because of the bank-holiday and having Monday off, I will now be chasing the week working extra hours to get s**t nailed by Friday. I worked 10 hours today, which added to my commute means that I was out of the house for 12 hours. Whatever your situation you can find the time if you really want it!

Anyway, it’s Shoulders and Traps today and it’s time to hit the gym!

Day 29 – Rest, Cardio – 20 min walk

Not a great day! Day 28’s alcohol consumption was crazy. I’m not sure I can go home to my friends and family any-more. I was sustained drinking, followed by the 3 hour drive back to the capital on Day 29. I had planned on doing a long cardio session today but my body simply said no! At times you need to know when to just listen to your body, Get myself fresh for Tuesday is my main aim. I did complete a couple of laps of my building just to close out my cardio, but it was a slow and depressing pace. I feel sorry for myself, and feel as though maybe…just maybe I shouldn’t have drank as much… Continue reading
