Cheers I was going to 4 reps and even with my protocol (20-30s b/w R's, 60-90s b/w S's) it got bloody difficult. I might cut it back to 3 reps and have a uniform rest period, see how that goes.

Permission granted. I have not lost weight these last 3 weeks, but have been putting more weight on the bar. This can very easily happen to me +/- 1 kg of b/w. I usually only experience noticeable weightloss in short periods of time (i.e. 3 weeks) if I am super strict about my diet or I run myself r...

Lifting after surgery

An MRI scan I had yesterday confirmed a suspected lateral meniscus tear in my right knee. I have an appointment with my surgeon on Monday and, although he isn't the most knife-happy doctor, I think the best course of action will be surgery - an arthroscopy to be specific. This isn't new territory fo...
