bol ADU, it’s the only side I wanted to be on tonight given the situation but I marked it Perth -3 so couldn’t take -5.5.. would’ve hit them hard at just about any number in most previous years where they’d just blow out whoever was in front of them in a spot like this but this current side has some issues ..

Thanks for the plug Aus, yep mike Israetel is a great source of information for all things muscle hypertrophy .. actually one of the interesting nuggets I’ve picked up from him regarding “shoulder” training is steering away from overhead pressing.. the reason being that the movement really targets the ‘front’ delts primarily with minimal activation of the ‘side’ delts - which is the part of your shoulder musculature that will give you that much sought after ‘wide’ look.. the side delts are much more effectively hit with movements like upright rows and side lateral raises.. meanwhile your front delts get plenty of stimulation from your bench pressing so there’s really not much need to do much if any overhead pressing.. 

The other important area which many of us tend to neglect are our rear delts - which help to give you a nice ‘pop’ to your shoulders, particularly when you turn side on.. training your rear delts with movements like face pulls and rear delt raises also has the added bonus of helping to keep your shoulders healthy - ie, most gym bros tend to do far more pressing movements than pulling movements which can lead to a lot of soreness / tendinitis in your shoulders.. again though, you only really need a few sets per week of direct rear delt work because they’re only a small muscle and already get hit pretty hard from your horizontal rowing movements.. 

I’ve actually ceased all overhead pressing for the time being and am devoting more weekly volume to upright rows (with dumbbells) and side lateral raises.. give it a try

Absolutely, I love cricket more than life itself but I haven't been as captivated by a test series as much as this one for quite a while.. India is just a fascinating place to follow a test series - just the suspense before each match in terms of what the pitch is going to look like and how it'll play (how heavily it's been tailored to the home team!) is like a game in itself! 

Yeah Australia's performance has been a big surprise.. I thought we'd lose this four game series 7-0, heck I thought we'd be lucky to win a session !! But we've shown some real ability to hang tough and play the 'long game' with the bat.. I really didn't think our guys had the ability to play with soft hands and adapt to spinning conditions anywhere near well enough to be competitive but their time in the UAE before the series was clearly constructive.. Mind you, I'm worried how much is left in the tank for this test due to the amount of concentration and mental energy we've had to pour into the first three tests.. hopefully we can just squeeze a little more out over these last three days with bat and ball, take some wickets in bunches and put two or three good partnerships together with the bat to give this a shake.. 

As for Steve Smith, what's left to say ?

Job mate, you're seeing it like a football 

Pity our batsmen can't do likewise in this deciding test

fcuken broncos.. still stuck in 1998 mode where more tries and talent won the game.. the sooner this friggin team joins the modern era the better ... maybe then they might win the odd with a # 7 who can build pressure

Yeah seriously, what on earth is a pissing contest with that fool going to prove? I just can't understand this sort of nonsense on betting forums given this whole thing is a completely personal and individual battle against the books and yourself.. it's just 'noise' that serious punters don't need..

Anyway, as for tonight I've gone with Brisbane in my weekly 'tick and flick' tipping comp and that's probably as far as I'll get involved with the game.. The cowboys are still stronger than the Broncos in some key areas imo but tonight with a couple more days recovery and maybe a bit of an edge in motivation given last year's semi final loss, the broncos might just do enough..

Mate I have to ask, what the actual F are you doing engaging with that complete and utter loser over at CTG ?

I've seen the back and forth over there and had a glance at the bloke's twitter as well and I think he is genuinely unhinged mentally / intellectually, you name it.. 

Seriously, don't get sucked into his pathetic vortex with this 'capping competition' or whatever it is he's proposed.. I thought that site was better than that and would've tossed a trouble making troll like that already ?!

I stuck the Lynx in a 'mug special' ML double with Adelaide in the netball at a tick over even money.. first leg is in the books so going to get greedy now and take Bendigo +6 and hope for middle

It's a rebuilding year for Brisbane anyway with their forwards so why not get a jump start on the new halves
