    Been doing some indoor bouldering lately while wearing a fifteen kilo diver's belt which has been interesting. It changes things up quite a bit! A year or so ago I weighed about 10 or 12 kilos more than I do now, and had less finger strength and technique so it was like going back to being a beginner really.

    I agree with the last part - I took a break of a few months and the last few sessions have left me a quivering and shambolic wreck. My (better) other half has lost no time in mocking me for this - the words "I told you so" have been uttered like some sort of taunting mantra since.

    Bodyweight shizzle today.
    Handstand press-ups: 5x5
    Dips: 5x10
    Pull ups: 5x5 (Not so good at these!)
    One handed push-ups: 5x5.

    Chest and Back for me today.

    Flat Bench Press
    Lat Pull downs
    Incline Bench
    Seated Row
    Single arm bent over row

    20 mins on the treadmill after....legs still burning from yesterday's treadmill and leg workout but I feel like crap if I don't go...the cigarette directly afterwards has got to go, just can't seem to completely get rid of the, "kill-me-quicks" as my grandfather used to call them.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Did this today for a few hours as a workout. First time 'proper' climbing (not bouldering) via top roping although I've done abseiling in the army...

    A great day and a good workout. I tried four routes rated 12 to 20.

    The picture is of me on the route 'Digital Input'...

    Gee I wonder how it got that name ...Makes me think. We talk about digital...Camo, rock faces, patterns etc. and they are all block shaped, chunky things. And this was the part that got me thinking, why the hell we want to sit down and watch digital TV when analogue was never portrayed as being that grainy...Oh wait...Work out thread...We don't watch TV here do we?!
