obliques are my favorite hehe, I got them after a lot of yoga and weighted sidebends. (if you want sidebends to be effective...you need to go heavy weight and focus on the eccentric movement)


You know...I don't like 'em! Not on me, anyway.


I think they look super hot on men though. My BF thinks they look good on me, but I will not be doing extra exercises to build-up my obliques any more than they are at this point!!


Just do it, I'm a fan of obliques on the ladies. Unless they're ultra pronounced.


Hmmm today for exercise... I did nothing yesterday! And kayaked the day before. So I believe working Chest and shoulders, then dreaded cardio I used to be so disciplined with cardio...45 minutes everyday no matter what...getting 20 straight minutes from me is a success... It has to be chasing a soccer ball, or doing something to keep my mind off.


Oh yeah, have beach volleyball today in the evening!



Yesterday was a heavy chest day, and a little cardio thrown in afterwards. If I make it to the gym tonight, might try to do legs and shoulders (not sure if I'm going tonight after work, since I'm exhausted from this past weekend).



Me too, I've slept in Monday-Tuesday and Wednesday

A joke I was told at the weekend:

If you want to pick a fight with one of two people, which should you pick? The guy who never goes to the gym, or the guy who goes to the gym every day?



The guy who goes to the gym.

He'll be too wrecked by whatever he did to himself the day before to defend himself.

I could do abs for 30mns long ago... 200 or so. Miss the six-pack.


Running has become tiresome. And personal record of push up was 40. Even when I was very thin.


Now I enjoy swimming or cycling. Or Just walking always in the countryside.


Used to be decent in badminton.

I have a 6 pack in the morning before I eat anything lol. I took some shirtless selfies (one of which is on Tinder - yeah, I'm that guy, but only on Tinder ). I'm tempted to post one as my profile pic, for a super limited time.


I want to get more cut, it's so hard though! You can't eat anything!!!

    • 6 Signs You Are Hurting Subconsciously
      Do you value having a positive and optimistic perspective of life, no matter how bad things are? Being overly positive and optimistic can be as bad, or even worse, than having a negative approach to something. After all, lying to yourself is very rarely the best way to approach things and it can be detrimental to your mental health. So, if you're not happy or hurting about something, it is important that you acknowledge it instead of repressing and ignoring it.
