    "To gain respect, begin by respecting yourself. Live up to your word. Do not, under any circumstances, go against that in which you believe. Do not exploit others. And, most importantly, start to love, wishing good and success to everyone you meet."

    Diet? Yeah I was just on an awesome diet. It's called the virus diet.

    Got sick Friday evening... by Monday morning I had dropped from 92kg to 87.6kg. All the chicks at work were jealous even after I told them I felt like death.

    It sucks missing gym... my equipment is currently out of action till the new year so I haven't touched it in a month.

    I find I go through phases... a few weeks right into it and then an off week. Though I find I do the most growing in that off week.

    Good luck with it!

    That's never good to hear mate and is actually a very nice positive quote. I went through a break up stage not log ago after a 3 year relo. I found the gym to be a bit of a comfort and relaxation but at the same time let me get out all my frustrations. Just don't over do it like some people do

    I found a really good diet for me when I was bulking (which is always cause my metabolism is facked) lots of carbs in the morning/lunch eg porridge,rice,bread and all your chicken and tuna etc and a shake of your choice (I use a protein called Evolve mass fx. It's the Protein made by ASN packed with carbs and protein has helped me immensely). And then at night just foods that are rich in protein and veggies or salad. That's roughly what I do but gives yOu an idea. Dunno if it's much help but worth a go :)

    How does thermojet compare to mesomourph disco? In terms of pump/focus?

    A friend has recommended that if I did get on a fat blaster sup. to still use meso as a pre workout. This was for his own personal experience, and the guy is shredded.

    Focus is the same, not sure about pump, maybe take some and see. If you're not feeling the kick you need add some mesomorph and go supersaiyan! The beauty of a thermogenic is you don't get the 'come down' so you can take it morning or afternoon.

    I'm attempting to find an ex-army or even current servicing army PTI for hire in the Homebush area.

    Anyone have a contact or recommendation?

    That is excellent...just goes to show you never to old. I take my inspiration from my Dad who is still doing some fairly hefty weights at 70.

    Just quietly, I can't believe I ever worked out without Mesomorph. That **** is the most ####in incredible stuff I have ever used. The bloody pump I've been getting and the results after just 5 days of use, is ####in amazing.

    I love the **** so much, I think I might put a ring on it!

    Dear lord.

    I'm only military pressing 60kg's at the very best.

    What do you shoulder press?

    Well- you see I classify Military Press and Shoulder Press as the same- although I suppose people segregate by saying Military is standing up and Shoulder Press is sitting.
    If you look at it that way I Shoulder Press not Military Press, so its 95kg on the Shoulder Press

    Trademarc I am interested in knowing what you're doing when you say military press... Db's or BB? Smith machine? You're standing? Do you boost them up yourself? Technique etc..

    My understanding of the two is shoulder press is generally done using DB's whilst sitting, and military press is done with a BB (seated or standing, although steated allows for a heavier and more controlled load). Shoulder press works stabilizer muscles also, and also allowing a greater range of motion and you don't have to worry about hitting your head. I pressed 36's for 7 on Friday. Whereas military press allowed for a greater overall load to be pressed.
