Hi Steve, yes we get those great training sessions then we get the others,turning up is half the battle though and grinding through the tough ones pays off as you well know.

290lbs. It's actually up again today (see below). As per another post before my thighs are up to 28-inches. Some fat I'm sure.

We went to an award winning butcher. 48 different kinds of sausages inc one with cognac added

Monday
What a moron I was yesterday. What should have been a 90-minute walk up a mountain turned into a 3 and a half hour trek from hell. Utterly exhausted and covered in bramble and gorse scratches. Long story short I ate for my country when I got in. See bwt today. I also decided to change the rep scheme

Squat Machine (SSB still broke)
to 400-kilos x 8 reps

Seated Leg Curl
to stack+5.5p x 12 reps

Leg Extensions

I saw the photo on Facebook, Steve's legs got tore up pretty good, but as he said, there's not a chance it'll affect his workouts! 8-)
