Joined my first escalation league. First anything with 40k outside of a small group of friends really...I've played maybe 6 games in a GW in my adult life. I opened it with a stellar 3 losses in a row, and not even just normal losses, I got tabled by three different armies. Came back for round 2 and got 5 games in: 4 wins 1 loss, with three wins in a row. I jumped from 2nd last in the league to 7th (I think, there's more games still going on but I can't play during the week, only weekends) out of ~20.

Fuck. Yes.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

You can see me at the far right of the picture sawing off some resin. My buddy that runs the GW store in my area took the pic because he wanted to prove to people I'd actually gone and bought it.

That is just evil, prepping your model of doomness in the store for all your future victims to see, I like it!

Was looking for tips on arm exercises on the interwebs, came across an article claiming to add an inch to your arms in a week! I thought it was bullshit but figured they may have good exercises, anyway the idea is to beast your arms for a full week using multiple exercises to overlaod them then rest them for 5 days (very important) , well in the video the guy tried it and said realistic you get half an inch. So I gave it a blast and was wrecked after day five, but measured the old arms at day 7 and boom had gained just over half an inch. Now I'm no pumping iron guru, but I'm doing exercise were I'm doing 3 sets of 6 reps and pretty fooked at last set, then do a forth set with a lighter weight with 12-15 reps. As I said I'm no expert but working for me, but there be better guys on here to ask

Those are quick muscle memory gains; they'll begin to settle into a more normal size after you've swollen them.

While lifting heavy (and lifting the heaviest results in low rep counts) gets you a decent return, it's the amount of time under stress. I see lads in the gym who are bouncing the weights like they're on rubber bands. That's using momentum. When at the apex of the movement, squeeze and hold for 2.

Pull ups, squats, upright rows, overhead tricep extensions.

Also, remember to regularly change up, don't get your body into a routine. I do the same workouts, but change between Low Rep, High Weight to Mid Weight, High Reps (15 or so).

And when training, don't forget to neglect abs or legs. It's a bit different for me, as I've got to get my carcass back in working form (i love it when people tell me to train legs now i'm back in the gym and I put 300KG's on the incline leg press and smash), but I've found that when I get my legs in the action, I'm getting better shape and definition. Don't know why, but it's also a welcome rest from the continual rows, extensions and presses.
