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.

Jotted down and noted

Went out to buy an new computer yesterday. Decided to opt for building one instead. Took me 4 hours and lots of irritability but I got it up and running and She works like a dream. Never going to buy a built computer again.

As of today, I have survived 29 years of life outside the womb. There are many ways that life and I could improve, but all things considered, I can't complain!

Cheers to all the cool people on this great forum! May the good times continue.

As of today, my Heresy era Salamander army has reached the Century mark. That's right, 100 Legions Astartes have been put together. That doesn't include the three Dreads, 5 tanks, and 7 Tarantula gun turrets built to support them. Rather proud of myself. And a little under half of them (all vehicles included) are painted. Not bad for only two months work.

Right on man. 29 is a great age! I got married at 28 and bought a house at 29. =)
