A break from your mission of one month's training with the 24, Craig?!
Well, no, happily not, as it turned out, since the hotel gym had a dust covered and barely used 24kg 'bell hiding in the corner.
I'd actually planned a few purely bodyweight workouts, which, due to my happy discovery, I didn't need.
However, if you guys would like some purely bodyweight days included in the final programme please comment below or let me know by email.
With regards, to training, it's all going well, and pretty much the same as my last update:
Also, and this is extremely anecdotal, my partner commented that my glutes were 'looking nicer'
a) I believe she meant 'even nicer', and
b) I wasn't aware improvement was required.
I think that's what they call a back-handed compliment.
The only potential downside is the effect on my top-end strength, and on my favourite exercise that I've deliberately excluded, the pull-up. This coming weekend is the end of the four weeks, so I'll be repeating the tests I did with the 24 during week one, then testing strength on heavier bells and pull-ups. As always, the truth will be revealed here first...
