    The title of my old log is annoying me.
    It's here: gain 25lbs & get stronger

    I am 47, 5'10", about 10st 11lbs.
    My goals now are to stay under 11st, get stronger if possible and increase my conditioning. I've recently started boxing.

    Today:
    8 x 3 mins on heavy bag with 45 secs rest.
    Interval training up a hill. In the hot sun. Barefoot.

    Conditioning

    Burpee Intervals
    6 rounds:
    3 x 30 secs burpees & 30 secs skipping.
    1 min rest.

    Bought myself one of those harnesses to do neck strengthening.
    I already have a goitre (Lithium / thyroid issues), so looking forward to having a REALLY huge neck.
