    So I've begun training with 4 guys and one girl, every monday wednesday friday and sunday. Their training principles are quite different to anything I've read from here, I think hey are based somewhat around russian conjugate. Rep schemes vary to reach a peak after 12 weeks, before competition.

    I'm going to try and introduce them to west side, but I'll wait a little while for that as I've only been training for a few weeks. Guys there are seriously built, but unlike in the states juice is definitely a massive no no. I think this is one reason why our Australian records suffer. The restrictions upon shirts/suits may also play a part in this.

    We have one physio and one doctor training with us, so it really works out well. We even have a blind guy train with us on mondays, his dedication simply astounds me, even if he annoys some of the other bigger guys he kind of motivates me.


    ps. back from my self imposed ban
