    Ok..so this is my first ever journal so bare with me if i bore you! So this weekend will be 10weeks out from the wbf in port talbot wales and hoping to compete in the pca in birmingham 2weeks later... 

    Long story short was in a car accident around 8 weeks ago so that brought my training to a shudddering halt..literally no weight training for over 4weeks and only now getting upto speed again..due to a severe tennis elbow injury..still to this day i cant do simple movements like dumbell side laterals..up right rows..heavy deadlifts and hammer curls..

    So since the accident i cleaned up my diet a bit and been managing to slam a good amount of steady state cardio in... so dropped quite a bit of body fat but now back to training 90% ish again find im quickly growing too... im holding 14st 5lbs at this present moment and was looking at doing the classics catergory in which the limit with my height of 5ft 9/10 is around 13st 2lbs...so its going to be touch and go at the moment on if il keep growing or not or maybe sacrifice a bit of size to make the limit... im old school through and through bodybuilding wise...aim to is obviously nail some freaky conditioning whilst pulling of the sickly vacuum pose.. be nice to aim to qualify for the british finals in june but i guess you never know whos going to turn up on the day!! Any questions at all..il try and answer as honestly as possible regardless of what it may be.. thanks dave

    thanks all...that avi was about 4weeks ago so even more freakier now hehe.... mick ive got no one dialling me in at present.. im.a bit undecided to be honest because theres 2-3 different people who have offered to do it but all got different methods and totally different styles..all i know is that im feeling great at the moment...seeing changes quite frequently and im not on any fast acting esters yet..training 5-6days a week most of them twice a day whilst working 12hr day and night shifts...so maybe il make a decision around the 4-6week mark...although admittingly i think im going to need help on the last week or so with dropping water etc..

    Yeah i dont want to give to much away tbh...i set up a facebook page 2or 3yrs ago when i last competed..and i was only a beginner then..but had a 1000or so followers and certain high level amateurs were quick enough to run me down and slag me off etc...dont know if it was because they had been around a while and had only a few hundred followers mind lol. I will try and get some pics up soon...being single im not the best at selfies lol

    Brief update...morning weight still 14st 5lbs.. 8.15 this morning abs and 1hour steady state cardio on the treadmill. Usually hit around 650cals with heart rate between 120-135bpm. All of this fasted on 20g bcaas and i do sip on 15g bcaas throughout the night.

    Abs consisted of 3 rounds of decline bench leg ups x20reps supersetted with 35kg barbell twists 20reps each side then 4sets of 25reps of controlled rope crunches racked at 68kg...

    Around 3ish now will be back for some arms with an occasional training partner of mine...so hopefully get some photos up at some point

    cheers fella...literally all i could do was steady state cardio on treadmill for first 4-5weeks then slowly got back in weights..so hoping to add muscle n lose fat now. Still with my arm cant do deadlifts..side laterals with dumbells and up right rows..tried 7.5kgs upright rows earlier n not a bloody chance!! Im near pontypridd fella..yourself??

    Well today as stayed earlier done abs n hour of cardio this morning... then around 2.30 done just 3exercises of shoulders and smashed arms and thought it would be clever to do 15mins on the stairmaster to finish off!! Got a few pics to come...holding tons of water..lighting and camera guy wasnt the best n no legs shots ooops.. hope theres not too much hate to follow.. please bear in mind i know im a long way off for 10 weeks but confident il get there...i think another 4weeks should have a better idea where im at..
