Week 2 Summary/Averages:

Weight still not budging, but I know why and so wrote an article about this here. This was also my week prior to deload, sleep hours were up but quality was down, typical signs of overreaching. Also went out for a pub quiz this week and just noticed I was struggling to ‘get involved’ and couldn’t sit comfortably in my chair.

  • Weight: 174.21

Latest Physique Update

Weight might not be down…but certainly looking leaner 🙂 – Working on each pose to perfect them, recently noticed my right side actually looks better than my left, but had always chosen to do a left side chest/tricep. All about trying to get the small details right.

  • Taken first thing on Saturday morning (no pump, little food etc.)
  • Light source behind camera, to give as realistic updates as possible (no half natty lighting)
