I had this the other week and was worried that it was hernia related as it was exactly the same spot where Ive previously had hernia surgery - I think it was just a muscle twinge though. Was a bit sore for a day or so but after some rest and stretching out it got better. Hasnt bothered me again yet.

How would you describe the pain? I've had loads of what I would call twinges but this is quite a deep stabbing pain.

I was legitimately concerned I had twisted a bollock and had to abort my final set of squats. That sort of pain.

:dread: i'd normally say if the pain hasn't subsided after 48-72 hours then go see a doctor. any muscle tear should have eased off after that amount of time.

I use my phone to time in between sets and to record my numbers etc, so I wouldn't want phones banned. But then again yesterday I did see a girl taking a photo of her water bottle/legs and instagramming it :fp:

Been hitting my calorie goal (2,800ish) for a couple of weeks now, apart form one or two days. Gained a bit of weight and my lifts are improving, but slowing a little, haven't increased my squat or bench (strength days) in a few weeks. Going to attempt an increase next time a couple of sets and see how it goes.

Also going to try and fit in an HIIT at least once a week at the end of a session. Is 20secs fast as you can and 1min slow cycling for 5/6 mins ok? Seen quite a lot of varying routines/sets for HIIT.

If I'm doing HIIT on a bike it tends to be 60 seconds hard, 60 seconds soft for twenty minutes, but I don't really know what the science behind it is.

That sounds like hardcore HIIT :lol: On the bike I used to do 30 second sprint, 90 second slow, for 16 minutes total, i.e. 8 sets of sprints. To be honest though there are loads of different suggestions on how best to do HIIT. Maybe look at Tabata intervals if you don't want to spend too long on it.

Upped my squat to 90kg from 85 and my max reps went down from 12 to 9. Will try to force 10 next time but I was strawberry floated at 9 :lol:

Yeah let's not ban phones in gyms, I use it to time myself. And listen to music. And text mates between sets.

Fair enough! I think the iphone is too big to use as a music player, but each to their own!

Love Black Dynamite. :lol:

Cheers for the kind words guys. One day I'll find a picture of my 21st party, when I was still pretending I could grow hair. I've de-aged by like 15 years since then. :lol:

Ill have to get a progress picture at the weekend. I dont think Ive 'grown' much, but people comment that I look much healthier and I feel great, so something must be working.

Yeah I do like seeing comparison shots.

Had a lovely wee session tonight, couple of my old gym buddies were in so had a long overdue catch up :wub:

Currently collapsing up a hill after 3x10 50kg squats, the struggle is real

Had a few days away so double session tomorrow and single sessions Sat and Sun which would normally be days off. Not sure whether to be pleased or upset that I have to go shopping for new funeral-wear tomorrow. Enjoying the 32 inch waist :mrgreen:

Also noticing and enjoying my increased fitness from doing HIIT as well a lower intensity cardio. A friend who normally just resistance trains came to do my normal workout with me on Monday and I had him throwing up half way through my HIIT session while I still felt pretty fine. Good to compare myself to where I guess I used to be really.

Thats about what i do too, on the elliptical i would do 1 min hard, 1 min easy. When i use battle ropes i do 20 seconds on, 20 seconds off, because doing a straight minute of that would strawberry floating kill me :lol: Tho i do a skipping exercise that absolutely destroys me now, 1 min skipping, 1 min of various pushups/mountain climbers etc, repeat for 5 minutes. 1 min rest, then back at it for another 5 mins. Its strawberry floating murder
