    Yeah thats it. Military press, overhead press, shoulder press... It's called by many names, even Bob. I just meant dont just raise the weight straight up so that the weight rests soley on your front delts, as soon as the bar is going past your head pull back with the rear delts a bit. Put your head through the bar and rest the weight on your rear delts for a quick sec before lowering.

    OK cool. Will do. Sledge said I had perfect form but I'll keep it in mind since I won't always have him around to watch me doing Bobs.

    chest and forearms

    Flat bench
    w/u
    3x10@30 (66lbs)
    1x1@40 (88)
    1x1@50 (110)
    3x5@60 (132)

    I don't usually do flat bench because I'm skkerd to without a spotter but with Sledgeyman as my trainer so I can. Not too bad. I've handled b135 in the past so I expect that number to increase pretty quickly.

    Incline bench
    1x5@60 (132)
    2x6@55 (121)

    Never did these either. I always use DBs.

    Decline Bench on a smith
    1x6@30 (66)

    Barbell wrist curl

    2x10@12.5 (27.5)

    Needs to go up next time

    DB wrist curl
    2x8@12.5

    I never train forearms. I have bad wrists from years of doing nails so I'll just do what I can.

    I'm sorry, I didn't see anything else but this...

    Kidding, great workouts looking solid!

    It was so windy on the water in Mandurah that even the seagulls weren't flying. We didn't see any pelicans or swans. Sledge said that normally the pelicans are as bad at begging for food as the seagulls. We ate by the water and the seagulls just circled us, walking on the ground bitching the whole time that they were hungry too.

    We were sitting outside by the water's edge at a cafe having a beer. THere was a table of three or four people sitting two tables away from us. They were finished with lunch and enjoying their last bits of wine. When they left, the seagulls attacked the table of leftover food. There must have been 20 of them. Every time I turned around the take a pic they all flew away. I'd turn back to Sledge and they'd attack the table again, squawking and carrying on. They even broke wine glasses in their fury. I'd turn around to snap a pic and they'd fly away. It's like they KNEW.

    Today we're going to Subiaco for a doc appt. Sledge has a messed up shoulder. Then we'll hit Scarborough Beach which Sledge says is a real beach. LOL I think the beach here is just gorgeous. In fact, every beach we've been to has been gorgeous. I asked what makes this one a real beach and he said this one has waves. Growing up, Sledge lived at the beach, surfing and shit with his mates. So I guess to him sand, sun, seashells and crystal clear blue water isn't a good beach unless there's surfable waves. I'm a crappy swimmer so I never cared about the waves.

    ANEE-WAY...it's also leg day and we'll be going to Freemantle again to train. I liked that gym best.

    Training has been sporadic the last couple of days. I'm not going to bother going back over workouts. Nothing exciting anyway.

    I had been training on a free pass which expired. So Sledge and I started looking at other option. A new gym opened about 5.5 km away and we did the tour and figured the new gym with new equipment would suit us. Tonight was my first workout there alone since he had to back to work for 6 days.

    The gym is ok. Problem is it's not finished. No locker rooms...just roughed in plumbing. And after the first warm up set hammy GirlyMuslce realized there are NO MIRRORS anywhere!!!! So I did my workout and left. They said there would be TVs and mirrors and such.

    It took me 30 minutes to bike to the gym but only 20 to get back. There was a strong wind blowing right into me on the way there but not on the way back.

    I don't want to bore RX with details so check out my blog at

    With Sledge at work, I get bored and that's when i start cruisin the kitchen looking for food. So I'm going to log it out here so i can stick to my plan a bit better.

    meal 6am 40g oatmeal, 1 scoop pro powder
    meal 2 9am 2 scoops whey shake, 29g almonds
    meal 3 noon 3 whole eggs, 1/2c egg whites
    meal 4 3pm 150g ground beef, 1/2c pasta
    meal 5 6pm 150g turkey rissole, 2c green beans
    meal 6 9pm 150g cottage cheese

    I also have to remember to take my fish oil and evening primrose.

    No training yesterday or today since the gyms are closed.

    Dec 26th is Boxing Day in Australia. The origin is that employers and wealthier people would give gifts to the less fortunate/employees. Now it's a national holiday where stores open and have great sales. It's the American equivelant of Black Friday.

    I cleaned the whole house yesterday and did all the laundry so i don't know what I'll do today. I guess I could drag myself down to the beach on this 80+F day and take a walk.

    I dunno. I don't count. We took Dave's keto diet and slowly started adding carbs. Actually, now that I look at it I'm supposed to be at 3 carbs meals and I only have two. I'll have to throw another carb in there.

    I dunno. I never feel truly full. But if I eat more I'll gain more and I don't want that either.

    Ugh!! I hope it's not as crazy as Black Friday is here

    And that beach thing sounds good right now!! Although hot tubbing when it's snowing is pretty sweet, too
