Trying Out Wendler 5/3/1

I'm struggling to get into Wendler's 5,3,1 program for lifting. Like he says himself, you have to believe in the program you're following...and I'm not sure that I do.

12 Weeks o’ Lifting

In 12 weeks, I have increased my combined lifting total by about 63kg/140lbs. It's partly due to improvements in my technique and partly because I have utilised a strict 5x5 programme that only involves one exercise per day. Check it out!

Balancing Strength and Body Weight

After seven weeks of training, I'm getting stronger...but I'm also getting heavier, which is problematic in a weight-controlled spot like powerlifting. Hmm.

It turns out I don't eat enough, so I've started to eat more. I've also starting supplementing my diet. Thus far, it's working out very well!

Spears and Cutlasses!

During the my final day of my Warrior Masterclass, my aching body was given a giant spear and pirate cutlass...the culmination of many a childhood (and adult) dream.

Unarmed Screen Combat

Day one of the British Action Academy's Warrior Masterclass introduces me to the art of unarmed fighting, in the role of a football hooligan. This is acting at it's hardest: I don't even like football.

BANG! DDP Yoga for 2014!

My 2014 training has started and, thus far, it isn't going too badly. The last three days have been a combination of DDP Yoga and weight lifting and, I'm delighted to say, DDP Yoga is proving just wonderful - I already feel more limber after doing it just twice!
