I’ve had a great twelve weeks working through a Sean Lerwill bespoke bulking program. It’s been tough, but also a lot of fun and a good learning experience. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading the blogs, and gained some useful insight from my reporting and Sean’s comments (I know they’ve certainly helped me). Here’s one final…

Behold, the final week of the program! After a fortnight of PPL I’m now moving on to one final furlong. It’s a five day split, and the trick is that I’ll be doing six sets of each exercise: three heavy sets followed immediately by three volume sets. Let’s do it! The final week, so although we…

Week eight. I’m now approaching the business end of the program. Day 48 – Rest!? Dang, an unintentional rest day. I had a busy day planned, but expected that I’d still be able to get in an evening leg session. Sadly this didn’t play out. Mass delays on the M62 (because of a butter lorry!)…
