Bad news. I got back from the doctor yesterday. I was in London on Wednesday and Thursday.

Anyway I was scheduled to have my jaw looked at. Its damaged and Ill have to have to have it repaired. So no sparring for a while.

Thats not the worst. I had the flu (picked up while I was away). Unfortunately the doctor checked my heartbeat and she noticed an irregular beating pattern.

It could be due to the virus flu, but more worryingly it could also be a leaking valve. Either ways I need an ECG and Ectocardiogram before I know whats wrong. No training, indefinitely.

I'm back! I started working out and training for MA last week. I don't have my diary on me but I'll post my workouts later.

I had an ECG and Echocradiogram. The ECG revealed that I have a very low resting heart rate - 40 bpm. Apparently that's OK for somebody that trains. The Echo was OK. Apparently I have a heart murmur that is caused by some regurgitation in a damaged valve. The doctor is sure this comes from Rhumatic fever I had when I was younger. The damage is only minimal - my GP still wants me to see a cardiologist to give me the all clear, but apart from that I'm free to train again!

Hello all,

Long time since an update. I thought I would come on and let you all know how I'm doing.

I'm just after completing 6 weeks of DeFranco's Westside 4 Skinny B*stards. It is a quality routine and I have really benefited from it. At the end of my benching and squatting cycles I was able to get out 87.5kgs x3 and 120kg x3. I didn't try for any 1-rep max so I can't report on these. Either way I was very happy with my strength progress on the program.

I've also put on about 1.5-2kgs while maintaining clearly defined abs.

I would highly recommend the program to any athlete/MAist looking to get stronger.

If anybody would like to see my log from the routine and/or has any other questions drop me a line!
