Every now and then I like to compare my current size and development to the photo when I started…this was now nearly 9 years ago!

This month I am also 49 and I promised myself I will be in the best ever shape when I reach 50.

My training is very hardcore right now. I have a focused training partner which helps a lot! (thanx Mark!)

Busy with my 3 months cutting regime with supersets and more emphasis on higher reps with slightly lighter weights.

My diet is very clean and bf is dropping visibly every week.

Soon I will post some decent progress photos.

So here is my latest comparison photo

I actually train twice a day now. Midday with my training partner and afternoon with my son. He is only 7 now and I am starting to show him the ropes of basic training, sets, targeted muscles, etc… He WANTS a 6-pack badly and his daddy is his hero with all the muscles…but the other day in the locker room he told me “Dad look! That guys is stronger than you!” I was not impressed and try to convince him otherwise….eish! just have to train harder!!

(PS: The guy had a huge back but my arms was bigger than his…honest. lol!)

Anyway, happy training from a cold and stormy Cape Town

My Last photo of my cutting phase. Now I take a 10 day break with wife and kid and then I start on a building phase for 3 months with my training partner (HEAVY weights and 6-8 reps  per set with not more )than 12-14 sets per workout). Looking forward to eating a bit more…
