    @CharlieStCloud Cheers! ;)

    I hope it continues too, I've never been a big fan of running, but I think my frame of mind is starting to be in the right place to persevere with this!

    Yeah it's amazing how the knock on effect works. Would never have guessed my hamstring was making my knee ache! Making sure I stretch everyday and try to keep it nice and loose.
    Foam roller mate.
    100% this. Got one a year or so back when I had another injury, works wonders. Bloody painful though!

    I also like to put it under my thighs and roll my crotch high into the air, whilst staring deeply at the girl stretching next to me.
    There's nothing worse than using that beast on your IT band. HO.....LY FUCK is that painful, but you do feel amazing afterwards.
    Gotta give another bigup to foam rollers. A physio introduced me to their wonders back in April. They're great! Normally do five or ten minutes each day while watching telly to keep my calf muscles loose. My legs are no longer injury-prone wreckages.

    I swear by the roller too, especially for lower/upper back and hamstrings.

    It's the one I got - works great. You could use some PVC pipe with padding if you had any.

    Good workout today, just did little bit extra at the end as its a Friday and weekends are always rest days.

    A power clean,front squat, overhead press circuit is quite the workout.

    Couple of power snatches, then practiced overhead squats. Manage to squat deeper than usual. Then had an image of me getting stuck in that position and walking out the gym like Zoidberg :)

    Clean/front squat/overhead press combos are fun/hard

    Great for cardio workout

    @Rodney

    At my local gym if I do any of those exercises I get the WTF is that loony doing look. Usually add in barbell rows at the end. Real killer is power clean,front squat,press,back squat,good morning combo. That really canes your heart. Great way to end a session, or have a cardio session with higher reps and a lighter weight and say steady 10 mins on a bike/treadmill between sets

    Why didn't I discover kettlebells years ago? Unlike other weights I'm finding these interesting even at my super basic level, I have a feeling I might actually stick to an exercise pattern this time.

    FWIW, I noticed that Lidl of all people will be selling kettle bells from next Thursday (nice Valentine present, those). Only thing is they're doing them in 2.5kg and 5kg varieties, which seems very light for kettle bells - 2.5kg is what, just over 1/8th of a pood. Still, might be good for those of us looking for an introduction to them I guess.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Because the centre of gravity is off centre from the grip in your hand, kettlebells tend to feel heavier than they actually are. 5kg probably is a bit light but if the price is good, you could always get two (would give you a few options). And they would always be handy for warm ups and the weirder kettlebell exercises.

    I still use my 6kg kettlebell for stuff (an unused present for my wife).

    Last time Lidl did kettle bells they didn't actually end up getting them in the stores. Bunch of cunts. I drove around 5 different ones and not a single one of them had them in their delivery.

    I hope those rollers are worth it sport, since my decrepit legs have kind of made my mind up to try one out.

    I hope you're on commission!

    Ah, I'd assumed cos of the shape of them, you'd not really be able to carry more than one per hand easily. 5 quid for 2.5kg and 7 quid for 5kg, which seem decent prices compared to a quick search of Argos.

    Down another half a kg this week. Pretty much exactly what I'm aiming for. Now I need to just keep the calories at the right level whilst I ramp the exercise back up.

    Managed to finally squat my own bodyweight today. That took some time working my way upto that weight and do the rep without any issues. New personal best for me :)

    A further 3lbs down for me...so now 11lbs in two weeks (told you it would slow down) :D

    Had my second run yesterday, was nice to run through Richmond Park in the pouring rain...I'm actually surprised I managed to do it seeing as Mrs CK was at home in the warmth, and I wasn't in the mood. But I got out and ran on a Sunday morning, in the rain...that's a massive achievement for me.

    I'm now about 12lbs off my ideal weight and back at my wedding weight (so the last year of procrastination has been wiped out). Now to try and get to my prior lowest weight (in full adulthood) of three years ago).

    Football tonight too, and I actually noticed in last week's game that my pace and fitness were better than in previous months...therefore I'm looking forward to tearing up the wings tonight :)
