    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    So you have negative body fat when you go from 160 to 145lb or is half of your cut muscle?

    Neat.

    I am 5'6.5 at 60 kilos. I would say I am about 14% BF. Is that good?

    Hmm....I don't know. I like wearing XS BoO and 510s. Will lifting require me to size up on clothing?

    ^ Well, thanks for the advice anyway. I run and do mild strength training (i.e. dumbbells, push-ups) which I think helps my maintenance. I really want to get down to 58 kg which is my ideal.

    Anything is better than nothing at this point. I don't really think you need two variants of a row at this point and some more free weight work would be nice. There's a bunch of things you could change, but if you work hard at this, you can still make progress. If you can, I would throw in some jump roping too.

    Back from the gym... In case it was so warm (35°C and 80% humidity) out there I didn't go jogging outside. Instead I jogged at the gym for 30 min (4.25km). Took socks with me but my drink bottle leaked and the socks were all wet so I trained and jogged without them - Result 2 big blister on every feat -.-

    The rest of the workout looks like this:


    26.7
    30min treadmill
    3 Sets á 10 reps Leg press (100,130,150kg)
    3 Sets á 10 reps rear Kick 30kg
    3 Sets á 20 reps calf press 70kg
    3 Sets á 15reps Leg curl 35kg
    3 Sets á 10 reps Leg Extension 35kg
    4 Sets á 10 reps lower Back 40-40-40-45kg
    3 Sets á 10 reps Rotary Torso 25kg
    3 Sets á as many i could manage crunch
    3 Sets á 10 reps biceps curl 15kg
    3 Sets á 10 reps barbell upright row 15kg

    I'm destroyed but it feels good and hope to see a good result at the end of holidays.

    LOL at all the hate and snobbery in this thread.

    So what if you were doing light weight workouts without cleans, dead lifts and squats?

    I didn't even go to the gym for the last two months - I trained exclusively on bodyweight workouts to condition my body for more endurance. And I only just did my first four sets of deadlifts after four years off. You think that makes me weak?

    So, don't hate on people for "crappy" workouts.
