    Never injured a pectoral, was you bench pressing or using the flys?

    Either way a week or two convalescence should be adequate.

    Just concentrate on other isolated muscle groups or stick with your cycling for the time being.

    Unfortunately the weight on the arm effects the pectoral at the moment.

    Went out to do a 1 hour 10km run/jog, but ended up doing it one handed while the other hand was clenching my breast like a chickalick mid cunnilingus. Then had to come back home defeated after only 30 minutes.




    Christ. Dill could make those numbers.





    After 6 months of training and de-larding.


    Speaking of which, recommend a good sport's bra for Eddie eh mate.

    You'll just have to take it on the chin and rest, muscle memory will be your saving grace.

    ^ Amen.




    10km in 1:07.

    Running along while only using one arm is painfully slow.


    You also look like a complete spastic.

    Yoga in the afternoon.
    90 minute 4 hands warm oil massage.
    1000 elbow curls in the evening using large bottles of beer.

    Anyone know which is better cardio and calorie wise:

    40km cycling x 5 times a week.

    or around 60-70km cycling x 3 times a week, with the other 2 sessions being for massage.


    Or pretty much the same?

    They both sound extremely boring but the second option gives you a bonus massage and less chance of being hit by a car. But if sticking your butt in air while wearing spandex is your thing... Go for the first option.

    Distance is pretty much the same so if you keep the same pace you should burn the same calories, but you will probably go faster and harder for the 40km....better cardio workout and more calories burnt.

    The grammatically incorrect Songkran's Six-Week Six-Pack training has begun.


    If I can't be addicted to alcohol I'll be addicted to exercise, training, and being massively preachy and patronizing about it.


    Starting with: Saturday am 40km bike ride. 90 minutes Muay Thai. Then Abs and upperbody gym in the afternoon. High protein, zero alcohol, low carbs and sugar.

    Get on it like a bonnet ye bunch of lazy fat alkies.

    Pretty much the same in my experience, although you'll lose weight doing cardio 5 days a week.

    I'd opt for the 3 rides a week unless you're addicted to the endorphins.
    I know one bloke cycles 6 hours every morning rain or shine,must be pushing 80 years old now.

    Out of interest Lu, do you use proper cycling shoes with cleats and pedals?

    All that training sounds scary to me.

    The warmer weather has got me out on the bike as well. Today was day 3 of cycling added to my daily walk. I'm starting off easy with a 10 mile circuit on dirt track and road. It's pretty flat terrain with a couple of short steep bits that I struggle with. I get kids and old grannies passing me but who cares...

    I might do this during the working week too, if all goes well.

    Maybe after Christmas if Santa is good to me.

    Though I do shave and oil me legs.


    For fun.

    Great stuff, Troy. Daily outdoor exercise is great.




    Sunday morning 7am and time for the day's 40km warm-up.

    Get out of bed ye bunch of lazy alkies and lucky bugger morning shaggers.

    Lulu you are missing out, took me four years to realise the benefit of proper cycling shoes/pedals and cleats.

    Seriously get onit

    The 40km x 5 for overall fitness, but it hugely depends on what intensity you ride at for calorie burn. It's generally accepted that riding hard tempo/threshold for an hour burns 800 calories, while usually if you're just bimbling about you'll spend around 500 calorie per hour rate.

    The best barometer of 'work' is a power meter which will give you accurate feedback of the effort you're putting in and the calories you spend. These are WELL worth the investment if you're serious about cycling and want to become stronger on the bike. A far cheaper but slightly less accurate alternative (as there are many variables that can alter the data) is a heart rate monitor. Get one of these, establish five 'zones' : endurance, steady, tempo, threshold and anaerobic (these are all a percentage of your max heart rate), and train each of these energy systems. For example, at present you're endurance heart rate may be 110 bpm, where you're just turning the pedals and basically just making the bike move, in time this heart rate will decrease and your speed will increase and you'll become more aerobically efficient. At the other end of the spectrum Threshold is the rate you can sustain for an hour without 'blowing up', this maybe 170bpm - this is the zone most commonly used by time triallists where they're clearing lactate as fast as it's accumulating. This is good value for money on the calorie burn front but it's very fatiguing and efforts like this can only be done properly a couple of times a week, which is why HIT training is becoming more popular.

    But HIT is for sissys. Full gas efforts on the bike are for bad motherfuckers who like PAIN!

    Slap out.

    A 4 week 4 kilo challenge was just set by a few of us at my main gym.

    Weighed in @ 77.3kg half way through the day with shorts, t-shirt and about 1 liter of water in me after the 90 minute work-out.


    Gotta be 73.3kg on Friday 2nd April or put the moves on the fat 50 year old mom n pop shop owner next door.

    Will be cycling every morning, gym three times a week, Muay Thai three times a week, plus more care in what I shove in me face.
