Keep us posted on the new workout.
I'm doing my own thing right now, but have that same workout on the app.
Trying to keep my ankles, knees and shoulders healthy and get a little more jumping in right now.

I will do. I'm dipping my toe in on the workouts this week and will hit them fresh next week once I get my head aropund everything.

Also, if you don't mind me asking, why are you doing your own thing? From what I can see the anti gravity program has pretty much everything you've just described.

I tend to get a workout ADD, plus I need some extra ankle and shoulder work right now.  I think you're right though.  Probably start the ATG workout next week and follow that for 12 weeks or so, adding in my Iso's and extra ankle and shoulder stuff along the way

Just looked at the workouts for this week.  I see they add in extra shoulder stuff already as an option, so will stick with that and Iso's

I'm similar to you. Normally get ADD but I somehow stuck with the ATG system for over 6 months straight. Glad to change it up a bit now. Just looking through the sessions and it seems to have everything covered that you want so it makes sense to stick with it. I'm the same in that I'll change it up every 12 weeks from now on.

Not too much training for me this week due to work and family commitments. Only 2 sessions with one of those being 15 minutes of deadlifts. Ball game Wednesday night too but that's been it. 

On the diet front still crushing it. BW is now 89.3 and my waist is down to 34". Ideally I don't really want to go much lower than this. Have had some sleep issues the last week too which may be a symptom of being too low. Again based on the mirror test I'm around 10% maybe a little under. Getting full separation lines in the quads too. Will keep on for the next week or so and then start working my way back up trying to add some lean mass. First change will be a post workout shake. Something nice and easy to do (50gP & 200gC). Been reading a lot of Poliquin's stuff and it's been his meat and nuts diet that has got me this far so figure I'll work back up using his info too.

Been pottering the last few weeks. Still balling and adding in some upper body sessions. Lost track of things a little. Weight is still in the 89s and I think the bf is lower than before. Am eating more but the weight is still dropping. I'm away somewhere sunny next week so not going to stress too much. I'm feeling kinda skinny so once I'm back the aim is to get to a lean 95 by the end of the year. Not too stressed on training the next couple of weeks either. Will get whatever sessions I can in and see how I go.

First proper full session last night. Mobility and upper body. Felt good to actually do all the exercises and all the sets and reps.

Bw of 89 this morning. Nearing recent times PR on this one but I'm starting to feel skinny as fuck. Not going to take drastic action but rather add in a little more food to stabilise and start heading back in teh other direction.

Still been training but not logging. Have jumped around a little on programs though. I'm still using ATG but even though I know how well my body feels on these programs I sorely miss the big three lifts. Actually mainly just deadlifting but the other two are ok as well lol. Found they have a bench/squat/deadlift program which I started this week. I've fallen behind on the jumping stuff. Not sure I actually care. Not sure the 40x40 is important to me anymore. Sounded like a good goal to chase at the time but I'm really not too sure anymore.

Played in the ball grand final last night. Lost by 16 or so. Other team had 6 guys nailing 3's so we never stood a chance. Especially with a chucker and two guys who refuse to close out on shooters. I played ok but it's still the same old shit. I'm bigger and stronger than the other players so they get away with murder. I've given away one team after the last game a couple of weeks back. Will keep in this team as they're a bunch of good guys. It's become a purely social thing now and idk about getting any better or not.

Wife started crossfit a while back and she's loving it. Kids started it too a few weeks ago and they're loving it as well. Hmmmmm  :ninja: :ninja: :ninja:

2.5kg at a time!

Your conditioning will improve with time as well.
