I'm not back in the S&E, but thinking about it as it helped add muscle and drop a little fat, but it did mess with my sleep a little for the first couple of weeks.
At the moment I'm just going to up the workouts for a few more weeks and see what that does. I tend to put on an inch or two in my chest/lats and an inch on my arms quite easily, but it drops off quickly when I have a lazy few months too.
I'm a cyclic gym rat/lazy arse
I repeat - YUMMY!
Breathe. Move forward.
I just eat what I want...
I've also just had a week off due to moving house etc.
As with the last time I did the program, when some of the exercises are shown as an assisted version and I'm able to do it unassisted I do (ie. Pullups and dips), others such as pistol squats I do the assisted version as shown.
I don't know if this is a mistake or not, whether sticking with the easier assisted variation helps in the long run for progression or what.
I'll roll into the next difficulty level once I've finished this round and see how that goes. The last time I tried it I couldn't do the number of reps required for a few of the exercises, like 1 arm Pushups for instance. So I stepped back down a level.
Thanks to the recent round of selfie threads I've realised that the program certainly seems to be having takes in my back.
You don't get to see your own back very often, but I was happily surprised with a shot of my back taken this week. Shameless selfie pay on the back shot
I would still like to see more of my traps and delts.
In other news, I've been thinking about getting back into martial arts recently. I used to do filipino martial arts (stick fighting, edged weapons and empty hands) and was looking at getting back into that, though maybe not the stick sparring as I can do without any more concussions. I'm sure I can trace issues with my short term memory back to my last one a few years ago. I checked out my old club only to find that they only do fma one night a week now, with bjj a few times per week, street boxing a few times per week and crossfit pretty much every day. They used to do kettlebell and boot camp style stuff as their bread and butter then the ma as a side line. But then I thought it was probably to fast to go once I get home from work to get there in time for the classes.
Coincidentally, after checking out their website I saw one of my mates had liked a Fb post for a new bjj dojo opening up 3 minutes from my new in a couple of weeks, so I'll be checking them out. Their program has 2 evening classes during the week then a day session on Saturdays.
Going to pick up my new toys today. A pair of gymnastic rings, a new pullup bar to bolt to the barn wall and just for fun the ab roller that you hold onto old school style but also can strap to your feet
That ab roller sounds interesting M, can you post me a link to look at?????? Cos you know how ditsy Gwamma is............
