I like exercise.

Tried "bulking up" in my teens & stopped on account of getting massive & losing some fine control of my movements eg table tennis.

Wouldnt say I'm a bodybuilder but I do like to work out as much as I can. It makes you feel good being fit and finishing a workout.

been like a yo yo for the past couple of years due to illness. Train like a bastard when I'm on the ball and full of energy. Don't get too big but generally put on about 20-25 pounds. Working out makes me feel better. Then, when I've been on a bit of a downer and lacking the energy I lose it all because I cant train or eat enough, plus the treatment I'm receiving seems to make weight fall off too. I'm now about 2 stone lighter than I was around June. Current treatment ends November and I'm looking forward to hitting the road and the weights. It's a fucking nightmare man but I do enjoy the gains you get in this situation. When I start working out again the muscle flys on quickly. When you've been working out for a while the increase slows down as your body adapts whereas I'm permanantly in the "newbie gains" bit, That and the muscle memory thing and I'll be putting on about 3 pound a week without working too hard- like some sort of yo yo dieter.

Muscle memory truly is a wonder,As soon as i start dieting i go flat and although more vascular and leaner the actual muscles are depleted and flat,As soon as i start bulking again it looks as if i am a good 2 stone heavier just from being fuller again.

If ever i can help with anything regarding diet/training etc just let me know :skin_up:

the way things are at the moment I can do the most basic workout and it works fine. when I was younger and healthier, playing rugby three times a week and training like buggery I had to get a bit more exotic to get results. Now, as I' nowhere near getting to the stage of plateauing a basic workout at home works fine. The last time I bulked up I had bad joint pain and had to make up a workout method to suit. I ended up using resistance bands from Lidl and a chin up bar. Worked great, although it certainly wouldn't have if I'd carried on longer. When you start you can pretty much do anything at all and it works as long as you get stuck in. I'm hoping for a bit of a healthier time of it next year and will probably have to go for a bit more of a disciplined approach once I get past the first few months. Will certainly swap some training tips with you man, you look like you know your stuff.
