    Cheers James, I'll be in touch a little closer to the time when planning gets underway.

    Life's good thanks. I enjoyed a couple of years living in Manchester but I'm back living at my parents' to save up for a mortgage deposit. Hoping to move out again early in the new year. Still working at the same place but will be making some changes in 2018 if everything goes to plan!

    Hope everything's good with you. Looks like your training is going well. I'm going to try and keep my log updated and keep up with the few that are left in the forum.

    Yes do let me know. Moving back home is no shame and seriously turbo charges your savings and if you are close with family can be lovely for a time. Glad to hear you have great things on the cards! Also, good to know you will be posting to log again.

    I was JUST about to start once more but had a kind of up and down week this week as start was GREAT and very strong, but yesterday was a tad crappy and today is a NO GO at all thanks to missus giving me a form a of weak manflu where I feel fien to do things but joint aches and no motivation to train (and I know with me that means knock it on the head or regret it!).

    Also, due to commitments tomorrow I planned this week Mon to Fri five gym days so due to schedule of last week that would of meant 7 training days in a row - think this has crippled me a touch too - so knocking today, pull day, on the head and will have a clear 2 day rest up before starting back Monday.

    Suffice to say, since coming back to the 5 day over the 6 day split (hitting everything twice a week over three times a week) I have felt much better... i must stop trying to be greedy as I was doing the best I have ever done strength wise before chucking in the 7 weeks or so of 6 day splits before burning out using the 5 day split.

    First session back today, still not feeling too great, annoyingly weights took a hit despite only having 4 days off training. Going to do a forced ramp cycle this week and next due to strength - 90% of regular weights this week, 95% next week then back to normal (or more, who knows!) the week after - then deload as per usual week 4.

    Lower Body Strength (weights at 90% of recent load)

    Squats 3 x 3-5, RPE 8-9
    140 x 4, 4, 4 @ RPE 8, 8, 8

    Deadlift 3 x 3-5, RPE 8-9
    190 x 3, 180 x 4, 4 @ RPE 9, 8 8

    Barbell Side Lunges 3 x 5-7, RPE 6-7
    80 x 5, 7, 7 @ RPE 5, 6.5, 6.5

    Leg Extension 3 x 6-8, RPE 7-8
    125 x 6, 6, 6 @ RPE 8, 8, 8

    Calf Raise Machine 4 x 6-8, RPE 7-8
    160 x 6, 6, 6, 6 @ RPE 7, 7, 7.5, 7.5

    Diet wise, for those interested: Roughly walking at least 12 miles a week to gym, in town etc (no car or public transport use) atop of five gym sessions and pottering about.

    Average fortnight weight - 86.6k
    BMR - 1855
    Harris Benedict modifier - 1.675 (think may need to raise soon)

    Calories - 3320 (set for 1% total body weight gain a month)
    Protein - 173 (2g for every per kilo of bodyweight)
    Fats - 111 (30% of total calorie intake)
    Carbs - 409 (remainder of calories remaining after protein and fat set)
