Classic - that means raw, right? 140kg raw bench by a tiny little lady is astounding!

May I ask where "over here" actually is ?

Incidentally I applaud the use of random names in this manner. It is quite new to me and I suspect it would lose much of its effect if it were overdone. But so far, I like it.

Eek



My apologies for the confusion, young Stephen. I've been having next to no sleep for the past few weeks owing to owls, bats, mosquitoes (noisy ones), bin men, and roosters.

I came for a 3 week holiday to Cyprus over 2 years ago. The crosstrainers and bikes have in-built thermometers that show 38 degrees when the sun hits them.

3 hours of sleep a night for the past three weeks lead to confusion, owing in part to the thread title. You know I love you both with equal measure.

20 degrees is very hot? I wish it were 20 over here, Finch.

I like all of those things (and have grown several of them on windowsills in the part, and will again) but they ain't gonna feed me Happy. Actual calories tend to need room and soil.

Mediterranean people live longer...less stressful lifestyles as well?

never forget cause and effect...when ice cream sales increase so do the incidents of drowning, will ice cream cause you to drown then???


Less stressful because they do fk all work. Useless, time-wasting w4nkers the lot of them.

I can't. I live in a flat. I have choices, but not everybody does.
The most generous estimates for non-high-tech self-sufficiency seem to come down to half an acre per person. I grew up in a home with a huge garden, easily four times anywhere else I've lived, but I've never lived anywhere with NEAR that ratio.

My gran turned 87 the other day and I still catch her shifting cookers, fridges etc in the kitchen. She's in the garden every day watering her aubergines, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, feed her chickens every day. Zero pesticides (lots of sheep manure), no alcohol, very little processed food, organic eggs, organic olive oil. Daily exercise. I'm 32 and she brings me a sandwich almost every morning, plus cooks dinner for me 5 nights a week. She does my washing. She was moving tables and sofas about today to do some dusting.

Red meat once every couple of weeks, and that's a modest amount of mince.

She receives 800 a month from her state pension, and national minimum wage is 2300 odd. She is expected to pay for her medication (one of her tablets is 260 a month, which I don't let her buy as I'm looking after that) as well as 150 electric, plus food and household bills. She can probably survive without me helping her out, and was doing fine before i got here. Moral of this story is probably that it doesn't HAVE to be expensive as you can grow most of your own food if you wish to live that way.

Having said that her mum died of cancer in her 50s, as did my maternal gran. Partly genetics I believe, but eating lots of fruit and veg with zero chemicals, olive oil, organic free range eggs etc. Is most likely not going to hurt.

ZERO motivation to train, so downed a preworkout and set up the squat rack

Sleeves and oly shoes on

Bar x 5
50kg x 5
80kg x 5
110kg x 5
130kg x 3
150kg x 10

There's some nice DOMS in my quads and glutes. Hand still isn't ready for heavy deadlifts so I will probably just do 10 sets total for lats - maybe 5 sets of lat pulldowns and 5 sets of rows, plus hamstrings/hypers.
