  1. Todays training Am bike 40 mins 20 warm up 20 mins alt 30 seconds hard 1 minute about 30% of effort. Afternoon workout Jump lunges as many as possible and plyo push ups as many as possible for 25 minutes.Going from one to the other,resting as little as possible.When i was breathing out my arse,which was pretty much the whole workout i took time to recover a little. Challenging workout that one
  2. Todays training 07.30 40 minute jog. Ive never enjoyed running and i never will but im starting to see a noticable improvement in my cardio fitness. Afternoon workout Circuit of dumbell chest press dumbell bench step ups and V sit ups.150 reps on each as quickly as possible. Method here is take a do 15 rep weight or whatever you fancy and do as many reps as poss on 1st exercise the go onto 2nd etc.Keep going round each exercise till you hit 150 on each.(10 rounds) Record your time and beat it next time you do the workout. This is a density type training that tests your bodys muscular endurance,metobolic capacity and your csrduo vascular system. I tend to use a weight i can do 15 reps with but a challenging weight.
  3. If steves ok with this im going to post my routines every day.Anyone who fancies a go can,or if you need exercise alternatives to what im doing i'll do my best to help out. Today Morning workout on an empty stomach.I hour on the exercise bike,20 minutes at an easy pace to warm up then go about 60% effort. I was stopping every 5 minutes to do 10 dumbell thrusters the back on the bike.Great workout,gets the heart pumping and the thrusters engage more muscle fibres than just peddling on the bike. Aftrnoon workout,about 3pm will be pistol squats,thats just 1 leg squats for as many reps as i can on each leg then straight on to bent over dumbell rows.I'll basically go till i blow rest for a minute or so and go again. Im gauging about 12-15 rounds in 30-40 minutes.
  4. Thats a great way to look at it and it has been proven, a short,intense bout of exercise is more beneficial than longer drawn out routines.
  5. Havent been on here for a while but i remember there was a good few who trained regular so i thought id ask what they were doing at home to stay fit and keep themselves sane. Ive been running most mornings and lifting in the afternoon. Doing circuits kinda tabata/crossfit style,olympic lifts with some high intensity cardio too keep my heart rate cranked.Not really looking to have any goals just keep my fitness,strength and gains. What you guys up too?
  6. Thanks for doing what your doing baldbloke.Stay safe
  7. Joe Newton works in the Rugby area. He's on here regular. He may be interested. Fully qualified and very experienced climber.
  8. Hmm...im unconvinced on the exact expense to the taxpayer. What i am convinced of is the amount of tax we would have to pay across the board for the first 5 years to boost our economy.
  9. If independence is to work in Scotland then the first thing to be implemented is 18-24 year old unemployed would be drafted for national service.
  10. Mark Carney has stated numerous times, but it always seems to be a non news story, that there is no reason why Scotland cant use its current sterling. Baldbloke there are plenty of people like my father who have voted for Labour for generations but refused to back Corbyn,mostly because of the stance on Trident,who didnt vote in the GE simply because he refused to vote Snp or Greens. Looking at the graphs the demographic that has seen the biggest turn is in the over 60's who once voted Labour but are now Snp. There are 2 parties in Scotland now with a smattering of the greens,lib dems etc. Holyrood is more diverse but id gamble in Labour losing a hellva lot more seats come next election. What will be telli g is how those seats are divided amongst the tories and Snp
  11. Short answer...No The Snps number one priority is independence,by any and all means. They will still be banging in about it regardless of how many referendums they lose,not that id think the next referendum will be lost given the hatred of Boris and his cronnies up here in the north. Baldbloke to answer your question posed to me some pages back id say pro indy/anti EU supporters in the Snp would be in a huge minority. Most are massivley concerned about leaving the EU and are using this to curry votes from those less informed...
  12. I havent been on arbtalk for a while and just today came across this thread.It makes for interesting reading thats for sure. Any of you who know me by my previous posts know im pro independence but not at any cost. Im not anti english or anti british, i fought beside lads from all over the UK and were all the same when you avoid talking politics. Where the game changes , in the forces,is with the rupherts(officers) Usually stuck up,self entitled arrogant pricks born with a destinct superiority complex and a silver spoon up their fuckin arse,exactly the same as most tory Mps. Given that Scotland has returned more Snp Mps to westminster means the thirst for independence has indeed increased. Enough for a second referendum? Well that depends which way you look at the figures but figures can be squewed to suit anyones rhetoric so im not sold on the 81% claim by Hosie. I agree with trigger on most of what he says on these pages im also pro independence,anti EU membership but we differ in the fact i vote Snp,i'll just add at this point that the Snp are by no means socialist the are pro capitalists who actually fit into the neo liberal model,the same as Labour under Tony Blair. I vote Snp as i see them as a vehicle to independence and anyone who votes Snp knows that is their number one priority. The last 2 elections have seen an upsurge in Snp votes and with it comes the undeniable democratic right of the scottish people to decide on our future. Should the rest of the UK be allowed to vote on Scottish independence? I dunno... I think most english folk would say if they want to go let them. Most see us as dour faced fuckers who steal all the money and the rest of the UK would be better off without us anyway. Some on here have looked to the past to justify independence but for me its more important to look to the future. I believe we would be a wealthier nation,not wealthy just wealthier,than we are now if we had full control of our nation. As for the once in a lifetime shite i think its exactly that- shite! 3 general elections in 5 fuckin years dictates that politics changes,peoples opinions change,priorities change so an election or refetendum csn always be justified in guaging the will of the people.
