    To be fair I have the cash to do it all so not a problem, but it's space for it all thats the problem lol. I'd love to open my own gym but it's premises thats the problem v expensive...

    I hate the cold gym, because I like to train with my top either off or just in vest so I can see how I look as daft as it may sound. And a freezing cold gym with nothing but a space heater which im getting high on all the fumes as no ventilation almost passing out lmfao.

    Has anyone used Marvel before - got talking to someone who had been in prison for a while last night during a party, and i asked the question how in mates maintain body composition with the lack of protein.
    I was informed everyone used Marvel, they drink it several times a day and it’s mixed with water. He reckoned it’s high in protein and cheap. This can be purchased from any supermarket.

    I am thinking the quality of the protein must be of low quality; however this might be a cheap alternative to the likes of thistle milk

    Anyone used this before or have any knowledge?

    Xbox Kinect Track & Field is brilliant! Also actually quite a decent workout in itself!

    Last A day of 10x2 yesterday went really well.

    Squat 147.5x10x1, 150x10x1 both sets really fast. Wish I had taken it higher, possibly could have had 160kg
    SLDL 152.5kgx10x2
    Inc DB bench ????? lol I've just noticed I completely forgot to do these. Should have been 45kgx10. I'll just do them next session
    Pullup 10kgx10x2
    Dips 32.5kgx10x2 could have gone higher really
    HC2PP 62.5kgx10x2 hard, but mostly from a cardio point of view
    Calf stuff - didn't do, did some plyo jumping work instead

    Gutted about the db bench! My phone was playing up and I keep my weights on there which made things interesting. Oh well, was still a good session. I'm well on track for a squat PB if things keep going as they are. Adding 60kg in less than a year would be awesome.

    Anyone seen the new Tim Ferriss book The 4-Hour Body?

    My bro has it on his kindle and it looks pretty good.

    My friend was telling me about this.

    Though to clarify for anyone who's not heard of it, it's not a 4 hour workout or anything like that. Just one mans attempt to significantly decrease his bodyfat in 2 weeks? Though I might not be entirely correct.
