My name's Alasdair Nicoll. I have been training under AJ for the best part of 5 months now.
Age - 26
Height - 6 foot
Starting Weight - 149lbs
Current weight - 173.6lbs
I have just ended a much needed reload week as both physical and mental fatigue was high. A major part of my check in with AJ this week was discussing mental state and over thinking. Having been out of routine and off work this week I have had SO much time to think about the impending mini cut we are planning.
This is something that I have heavily underestimated in the past, however, routine is something I absolutely 100% crave on a daily basis. Although I highly value routine this does not mean that I will sacrifice going out for food or drinks and enjoying myself.
It is definitely a learning curve that has taken some time but knowing how to adapt around these types of situations is something that I will continue to work on to enhance training, nutrition and other aspects of life.
That aside I'm really, really looking forward to getting back into normal training this week and seeing more progression.
