That's nothing to be frustrated about man. That's still a good time and if you didn't beat your last effort it's not a big deal. A 10k is easy enough to try again fairly soon. Few more weeks of training and you'll smash that gooseberry fool.

During BJJ tonight a purple belt had me pinned to the mat, one leg almost over my shoulder, and he says "is it just me or are you really flexible?" :lol: I'm like "well I didn't think this could get more awkward but I guess I was wrong" :lol:

Tried preworkout for the first time today :slol:

Seemed to make a difference early on. I managed a 110kg barbell squad X5, X5, X4, X4 which is better than last week. Same reps numbers for deadlift (straight after) @ 150kg. One side effect seems to be neon piss. I've never seen piss so orange.

One question though: how do you write gamer guides if you don't actually play games?

I don't write game guides anymore. I'm a technical author for a software company now. Best pay and working environment I've ever had. I do plan on writing a selection of physical game guides for my top 10 fave games ever, but they'll be my 'swan song' of game guides.

My dipping belt arrived the other day and i used for the first time today. Only did 2.5kg when doing chin ups but felt good.

Doing bench press and my left forearm (nearer the elbow than the wrist) was in a bit of pain when at the top of the rep. Changed from the bench to the machine to see if it was my form, but still a bit sore. Has anyone had this before/know what it could be?

Inside. If I look at my palm facing up it would be low on the right of the forearm.

could be lateral epicondylitis, or bicep tendinitis. try compression and ease off the bench for a few weeks.

Thanks, I'll look those up and will see if they sound right! Annoying as I had been making good progress in the last few weeks

Anyone got any suggestions for a good beginner weights routine? I haven't been to the gym for weight training for at least 6 years but looking to get into shape before going away. Basically have got 4 months-I'll be playing football and squash 2-3 times a week so pretty covered for cardio but was planning to go to the gym 3 times on top.

Looking for accessible, I'm not looking to do anything crazy just build a bit of muscle and core fitness.

Cheers guys!

On my phone but 'starting strength' is perfect for your needs. Really basic and fits in with 3 days a week and cardio on top. Gives you great core strength.

Squat up to 115kg for 5 reps
Deadlift up to 160kg. Damn that was hard. Normally if I go up a weight I manage 5, then 4, then 3 then 3. This time I managed 5, then 4 then 1. :lol: My muscles just 'stopped'. I lowered to 150 and knocked out another two sets though.

Gotta get up to 4 plates!

Good job FE! Ive been neglecting my own gym routines lately as its hard to balance both gym & BJJ. I aim to go to BJJ tues & thurs, and Gym Fri & Sun but its tough. BJJ knackers me in a way the gym doesnt so come friday ill hit the gym and then im just strawberry floating done for the weekend. Gotta just get focused and make the time for it no matter how hard it is.

Yeah balancing combat sports and the gym is really difficult; I ended up sacrificing a lot of boxing due to favouring weightlifting.

Managed to work up to 115kg on deadlift for 2 sets of 3 yesterday, which I think is the heaviest i've done, attempted a 1RM of 120kg but didn't manage it. Felt good though as I hadn't made much progress on deadlift recently. Probably should have gone for 117.5kg instead.

But if I manage 120kg then I wouldn't be too far off 2x bodyweight! I'm only 65kg though so that probably helps...

Also managed to up my front squat to 55kg today. Not huge amounts but progress is progress
