More Detail

Following on from a couple of comments over on The Reinvention Tour, here is a little more detail on my current diet.

The First Year

From zero to 'healthy obsession'.

Lying down again

This time at least it's on the bench, under the comfort of a loaded barbell. It's good to be hitting the weights once again. I've decided to switch the training routine back to the 3 day approach; following the pattern...
