    The simple cure is to get some rest, Matan. Red Rain was a particularly demanding workout - if you add your usual physical activity, no wonder you're tired indeed.

      Another great week of workouts, I-Matanjah!

      And maybe you've put on some fat, but there's nothing unhealthy about it considering what your current measurements are. You are healthier and stronger overall, and that's what matters.
      I second all of this. You know you have gained strength based on what your body can do now compared to in the past. You are working hard and it is paying off. A photograph won't tell you this.

        Hard and challenging one. 3 sets because I noticed that on 3rd set my form was pretty sloppy. I enjoyed V-ups it's challenging but also very effective exercise, I didn't liked Up and Down Planks (it was a bit too much for my shoulders).

        Good night/day bees!

          I wanted to do this yesterday but (I have no idea why) I felt pretty crappy.
          Maybe I would finish one or two sets without puking or fainting.
          Today it felt perfectly fine. Pretty nice stretching workout.

            That was... super long. LVL I in over 50 mins.
            It wasn't very hard, but super exhausting.

            I will do Gravity+ tomorrow, today it would be too much.

              ~ Daily Dares:
              -50 Sitting Twists +EC

              -40 Side Bridges +EC

              -30 Raised Leg Push-Ups +EC
              Ouch. After all that push-ups done yesterday, it was super tough.

              -60 Seconds Jumping Jacks +EC
              100th DD.

              -40 Reverse Angels +EC
              Ouch once again. My poor shoulders.
              100th DD with EC.

              ~Avatar Upgrade: Card 21
              -Gravity+ (1min rest)
              10 bicep curls (7.5kg)
              20 overhead punches (1.5kg)
              10 renegade rows (7.5kg)
              5 sets
              I tried to twist my wrists outside during bicep curls. It worked pretty well moving the tension more towards biceps (and my elbows don't hurt).
              As always I was focusing more on eccentric portion of the exercise.

              Good night/day bees!

                It was great, tough (but easier than I thought). I have no idea how I was able to do this on LVL II.

                  It was kinda weird. Combos with kicks were OK, but squat>push-up>v-up was something, well, unusual.
                  Overall it was good, sweaty workout, but a little bit too long (67mins).

                    Good stretch, but I kinda had to force myself to do this.

                    Honestly I had super bad day yesterday. It's really hard to stay motivated with trainings and nutrition when no one from your family supports you. F**k I feel like they are against me.


                    Have a great day/night bees!

                      Like for the exercise, and hugs for the lack of support from your family...

                        Yes, just keep going, I-Matantah! It's a shame your family isn't getting behind you, but you can only control what you do and your reaction.

                        I hope you have a better day today - keep smiling!

                            I always feel very sad when I read how much difficulty you have with your family. I've probably said this before - but are there any other options for you?

                              PetiteSheWolf Colin TheLibrarian rawcookie Thank you very much guys, I really appreciate it.
                              Yep The Hive is some sort of a big great international fitness family, but you must a admit that it isn't the same.

                              Well, there's always some option, but do I like it? Not really. It's too radical.

                                I didn't really liked this one. My abs stopped working during 2nd set. I guess that my lower back and hips did this work, because on 3rd set I haven't felt any feedback from my abs.
