i'm learning to run again instead using forefoot strike technique. slowly does it. combining it with HR training again, using range [180-(age+10),180-(age)]. combined it's good cos i am very slow at that heart rate at the moment, but as my legs/calves/feet get stronger in the new technique i will be getting faster at the same heart rate at the same time.

going to focus on SL5x5 and running for the summer.

Sweet.
I've been focusing a bit more on leg work the last couple of weeks. Before I was playing football two times a week so I was mainly doing conditioning work and perhaps one intense leg session a week. Now I can seriously put some work in.

i'm sure he'll magic up the motivation within you to stop being weak and small

good for you laur that's huge progress is a short period of time

at some point the progress will slow a bit so just be careful when you up the weights

down 8lbs in 4 weeks now, the exact rate i wanted to cut, no strength lost in any of my lifts either, so stoked

that is my all time graph.
red=bw, blue=squat, green=dl, yellow=row, grey=bench, purple=oh press

progress goes up and down constantly but overall trend is up. app tells me what to do after 3 failures at one weight in a row. deloading and increasing in smaller increments. i still only increase in 2kg increments so going up slowly enough.

good job chuck on the cutting.
