    I just had the 500 foods test done. interesting results although it's pretty sad my biggest fear was that 'oats' would come up red :oops:

    luckily it didn't. but pretty interesting test. ill cut out what was highlighted for 6 weeks and see if i feel different or notice any changes.

    Well I managed to destroy my left index finger yesterday doing palm up wrist curls on the preacher pad. I went to failure and as I slide the barbell over the top of the preacher pad I was unable to control the drop back onto the rack and 35kg of barbell crushed my left index finger.
    Blood pissed everywhere and the top bone was protruding out of the base of the nail which had popped off. 8 hours in A&E and a final half hour with a plastic surgeon putting me back together again and I think my training is going to be offline for a while as I try to get this better. For the record it feels farked. Thank christ for heavy duty schedule 8 painkillers. :(

    sorry to hear that :eek: you can train you just need to adapt your workout. i broke my finger last year i think :confused: so incorporated a lot of 'push' exercises on upper body days.

    hope it heels quickly

    @hardcore thanks and ouch I know what you mean. Yea when things are a little less painful and the wound starts to heal I will look at a modified routine. It will be a challenge but it will make it interesting. :)

    Check out the list on Privacytools.io, and maybe implement some of the other browser addons if you want a little more privacy.

    A couple people I know use nordvpn on that list and they like it. Fairly cheap too.

    Yes, it will slow down your internet but not dramatically. If it does, switch servers.

    Protonvpn also sounds like it’s worth a look.

    Slick email service too. Unfortunately only 500mb space and limited folders and labels for the free account :(

    Google were actively censoring them from their searches in Europe and got sued iirc. They're launching an encrypted cloud service too I believe.

    Private Internet Access is probably the best VPN you can grab.
