    I have a load of weights, pullup and dip frame in my garden. I used to be big into fitness throughout my youth and was a gym instructor/personal trainer. But I injured my shoulder a few years back and struggled with tendonitis problems ever since. Its been a slow recovery but its starting to come back strong now.

    Yep 5-6 days a week. Fully qualified personal training and works in gyms up until the day I took on full time window cleaning. It's still my passion and love it even more because the window cleaning means I eat when I want and train when I want. Both gel together amazing as the gym keeps me energetic and strong to keep up with physical gym. Not to mention the body that comes with it I often get whistles and comments from the women while working in summer months especially summer when it's shorts and vest time! Blowing my own trumpet here! :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Have a home gym, power rack, leg press, maybe 1100kg of Olympic weights etc etc.

    Was going to start doing amateur strongman this year but my left knee is now completely shagged and been unable to lift for about 8 months now :(

    What sort of routines are all of you using? I've done full body routines a long time and could do with some ideas to switch it up a bit.
