Well I’ve gotten a new iPhone. It’s nice to be mobile and still connected. For the most part it can most pages and functionality. But it did have issues with editor here had to switch to HTML mode.

Up the dose!

Well I’ve been hitting the gym the last week more regularily.  6 days on a 3 day split.

  1. Deads, Squats & Incline.  Mostly Deads and other leg work
  2. Chest and Back; incline, pullups, bench, rows.  Chest and back
  3. Arms and shoulders; curls, tricep extensions, close grip, shoulder presses.

It’s been okay.  Pushing out some decent numbers.  Have grown a few cm in places.  In the next week or so will have 2 weeks holidays, so will focus a little more and push out maybe twice days.  But hopefully will be able to get to the gym with a friend and push out some good sessions.

It can be hard to do max work by yourself without a spotter, so am finding it hard to go as hard as I can.

So push it to the limit!!!

Simplemachines forum

Well for about 18 months I’ve been helping out on the SimpleMachines forum site as a Support  ‘Specialist’.  I started around Sept/Oct 2007 joining to ask a question about custom profiles.

After that I saw many threads asking for help, so started posting help.  The constant new and various thread gave a welcomed break to the boring internet.  So I got more and more spammy with support.  It was very enjoyable and at the height of my activity was posting ~1200 posts a month.

Recently I’ve been voted into the duel position of Lead Support Specialist.  So now with the fellow Lead we need to try and stimulate the current members we have to continue supporting the community.  But I can understand the burnout many can have with answering the same questions in and out.  So will have to come up with some interesting methods to make it easier for people to help and incentive to help. , check it out.  A great free and powerful forum software.

227.5kg / 500lb club

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

So ever since I started doing dead-lifts my goal was to reach the 500lb mark.  Now at 95kg/209lb I hit that mark recently.  It was a good day, and I thought I had more in me at time.

Not a ‘legal’ lift due to hitching, but I got it up and locked it out.

Currently got 220kg X 2, so am working on more reps and stamina!
