Wow, thats awesome Evil. Lol, I'm only benching 60. But I love getting the gradual increase in weights each week.

Thanks!
It seems daunting, but a normal ride on the hills is 28km, including uphill, so I reckon I could do 50 on the flat without too much trouble... I've just never tried

edit: did 55km today ^-^V Including up and down rapaki. Achievement :3

I have always done gym work. Mostly adaptations of military fitness programs, body weight resistance, core workouts etc... A mate of mine from Police DPS gave me some PX90 dvds.....holy moly, awesome but brutal.

Anyone else struck it before, apparently its been around a while now. If you can look past the wanky American stuff, the exercises are brilliant and I can def recommend them.
