Most of the "home user" olympic barbells have a max of 250-300kg…think you'll have to go for the competition ones for that sort of weight?

EDIT: This Bodymax one is rated for 450kg surprisingly - http://www.powerhouse-fitness.co.uk/bodymax-7-ft-olympic-barbell-450kg-1000lb-rated.php

Sorry, I meant 300! My PB is 210. Won't ever need anything better than 250 but I assumed they go up in 100's roughly.

Surely Gumtree for weights and barbells if you got a car or a mate with one? People selling that stuff constantly especially come Feb / March I guess.

Any one see Jamie Alderton or Grenade Jay's dexa scan. Will force you to re think those bodyfat measurements. He is peeled and sitting at 12.3 percent!

Looking for a 2-day / alternating split… my job means I struggle with regular/routine work-out times.

Push/Pull or A/B type style. I also like to focus on BW where possible- dips / chins etc.

I've currently been doing a 2 day split since the start of January, just to get me back into the routine of going before work on set days. I'd been going semi regularly last year, but stopped throughout Oct/Nov as I dislocated my shoulder.

This has really helped me be more disciplined and stick at it and I'm properly enjoying training for the first time now. As its only 2 days a week I just do a full body workout both days (find this best if you're pushed for time/ find it hard to stick to set days)

Bench press
Hammer curls or Bicep curl
Overhead press or Arnold Press
Bench dips or power-bomb
Lat pulldowns or bent over rows
Squats or dumbbell step ups
Smith machine calf raises (I do these both days as they're good for cycling)
Hanging Raises or dumbbell side bends

With the either/or, I generally do the 1st on tuesday and the 2nd on thursday. I've had some good results after 7 weeks, but now ready to up it to a 3 day split. Will do a couple more weeks, have a break then move up.

Everyone's different though - another bloke my be sporting a bit of a gut at that percentage depending on if you have a propensity of storing fat. If for example he stored 7lbs of fat on his abdomen compared to, say, his back or chest it would make a massive difference.

Quite like his website - I might look into having a chat to be honest. Might join that website actually - is it worth it?

@shaneB the dexa scan gives you a breakdown of all body parts - including head so it's an average which is what you would be looking for.

Ryan Terry has had his done but hasn't revealed the results yet.

I am not a member of his web site but follow the videos etc he put's up online. Met him last year at the SFN great guy.

is coach synonymous with personal trainer?

@phish for me a PT is someone who trains you in the gym or motivates you to train. Coach is someone who advises you on training/diet. Depending on location you may have someone who can do both or do remote check in's online

yeah that's kinda the angle i was getting at, contemplating an online coach just to step my game up a notch.

been lifting for a few years so familiar with exercise movements and macros etc but lacking that person to bounce ideas off.

anyone gone down the online route before?
