  1. Why waste ten years reaching “your limit”? It’s just wasted time really, if you are gonna get on eventually regardless. Id agree if you were on the fence about using, but if you’re gonna do it then why delay the inevitable (inb4 someone interprets this to mean every person new to the gym should take gear - I’m not saying that so calm down lol) 5-6 years inconsistent is 5.5 years longer than everyone else that starts in this day and age lol

    W6d2 Bench 60 x 8 90 6x8 bench feeling strong. These were all quite easy. T bar row 70 5x10 one arm machine row 50lb 5x12 each side bicep curls tricep extension got a hip stability program from physio which I’ll be following religiously for next 6 weeks as it’s my big weakness in the squat. Im going on holiday for 2 weeks on next Tuesday and will be in a cruise ship so will muck around with the gym on there but mainly having time off and embracing the buffers lol. Tomorrow will be 7 weeks since last pin. Strength feels fine but I haven’t gone heavy. I had a touch of sad feels last week but I’m prone to that shit anyway sometimes and it was only slightly worse than usual, plus I expected it and was pleasantly surprised. Sex drive is back 100% after it dropped off for a couple weeks. Feeling positive that I’m starting to recover

  12. I'd keep training as you are until wedding is out of the way and you can afford a prep coach. Definitely go for it i reckon, I don't have the willpower diet wise to go anywhere near it but massive respect for people who do
