IT was a great day to train; nice weather and a small contingent of new trainees made the afternoon lively. A fella from over east gave me some good advice about glutamine, and I will be getting some ASAP.

Bench is still painfully weak, but not as weak and it was... I'll be increasing my training to 4 days p/week going forward so I can devote one evening to bench without neglecting my other lifts.

I did an hour of floor barre yesterday afternoon (definitely not part of my regular routine) and followed that with a 30 minute bike ride home. Coz I have a new bike... one that can hold my weight. When I got indoors I skulled nearly a litre of milk and then crashed for a couple of hours!

This morning I weighed in at 134 kgs (295 lbs). Thankfully this time it wasn't due to wastage from being sick!  That's another kilo officially lost, and one step closer to my goal.

Everything is back on track; my weight is going down, my lifts are going up, and it feels like this godforsaken Aussie summer is behind is for another year.

Already looking forward to Squat Monday!
