Big of a different topic but my Partypoker account got locked today.

In order to unlock the account they want ID (clearly visible), secret word, and for me to hold this in front of my face then take a picture.

Is this really the only way to check an ID is valid by comparing the photo with a selfie?

Pretty surprised to have to send in a picture of myself.

After being injured and sad for nearly a year that my ankle is too fucked for running on consistently I joined a gym a couple of months ago and am really enjoying it. Been doing weights for about a month now and today I did;

Squat 60kg 3x5
Overhead Press 25kg 3x6
DB bench 16kg 4x6
Lat raises 6kg 3x10

I have been doing that followed by random core stuff, with a 6-10k run once per week at the weekend.

Goals:
Keep going to the gym
Learn to deadlift
Learn to bench press
Learn good form for compound movements
Get on nodding terms with the strong guys
Lose around 5-6kg

Hi Ledders. Great stuff there and some very realistic goals. So many people want to run before they can walk so it's good to see that your goals initially are just to learn.

Have you made any diet changes to hit your weight loss goals? What you're doing in the gym will hardly burn any calories so you won't lose anything purely from that.

Would you happy with a body re-composition rather than just lose weight? You may find that you shift a few kgs of fat but gain the same amount in muscle.
 

I haven't made any big changes to diet, just aiming at a few less beers here, less carbs there. I get free lunch at work but it's all unhealthy so need to take the £ hit making my own simple meals. I think a body re-composition is what I'm after really. Natural state of a small calorie deficit without the crap and liquid calories, and gain some muscle as a beginner.

As I build a base and am able to do more, I aim to add more cardio in as I do enjoy running but I'm scared of re-injury. Being stronger will help mitigate that both physically and mentally.

Will be keenly following this thread and posting occasional updates myself. My mate showed me deadlifts and barbell rows at the weekend so pleased with that.



This sounds exactly like me 9 months ago. My first recorded weights in the app I use is on the 29th April 19.

Weight - 66.2kg
Squat - 60kg to 85kg 5x3
OHP - 25kg to 37.5kg
Bench - 40kg to 52.5kg
Deadlift - 65kg to 80kg

Those numbers were up to 6th June then I went to Vegas and forgot about the gym when I got home.

Started back up again on 16th July and just went back to my starting numbers as the program had me increasing every week.

In November I started to hit my current limits and workouts were getting hard. I like pushing myself but going in knowing there is a 50/50 chance of failing the weight that day made me think about not bothering.

Weight - 68.3kg
Squat - 115kg 10x1
OHP - 50kg 10x1
Bench - 60kg 5x3
Deadlift - 120kg 10x1

So 1st December I moved on to 5/3/1 Boring But Big - 3 main sets and then lower the weight to 50-70% and do 5x10. Hopefully I can stick to this for a good 12 months as the progression is slower.

Current weight is 69.5kg eating 2000cals + the xmas food and chocolates. Plan from Feb is to cut down to 65.5kg.

Goal is to keep going the gym consistently.
Add some cardio.
140 squat? If I just cut then maintain weight I assume this would be hard to get by the end of the year?

Based on what you've pointed out, I would probably agree that "Valtteri Bottas to win the drivers, Mercedes to win the constructors" @ 7/1 isn't value. Had forgotten Valtteri was 6/1 for the title, that in itself is madness.

I do think I made a valid point that if Valtteri wins the title, Mercedes automatically win the constructors though. If a driver as talented as Lewis is your "second driver" .. that's quite some points haul

Highly likely it could happen I agree but not worth the risk as an unforeseen  Withdrawal ,Injury , Disqualification or Ban could hit Hamilton for example , hence no value in the double

If we assume that Bottas is 6/1 for the title (which is way overpriced), what would that make Mercedes to win the constructors if the combined price is 7/1?


This may not be correct but I think it is a little less than 2/11 or 0.1666 to be precise.

If you set autopick but don't turn it on it chooses your auto pick when you timeout.

It'll choose the highest rated player available to pick.
It picked Martial who wasn't the highest rated, he was the player i had at the top of my autopick.

First few picks are pretty standard surely?

The disadvantage comes later on in the picks, no?

Moving on

What went wrong last night?

We didn't convert dominance into goals, again. We allowed ourselves to be caught by sucker punches when the LVG philosophy of possession possession possession fell down through some poor decision making, or poor passes.

Not at all impressed by Schweinsteiger, he seems to slow the game to walking pass every time he gets the ball. Indeed, there were times in the second half where he slowed it to a standstill. I know I am harking back to a golden age, but Scholes, Keane, Butt etc were dynamic both on and off the ball. Carrick looks forward and looks to move the ball quickly, Schweinsteiger just doesn't. Last night Smalling looked the most effective midfielder (had he scored when he burst through from the halfway line people would have been rapturous in their admiration).

Finally,
Get well soon Luke Shaw. Couple of pins and a few weeks on crutches and hopefully he'll be right as rain by the new year.

From what I saw last night he definitely had a few looks but never actually made the pass. Do you think that is just because he is cautious or team mates not offering in a space he wants to pass to?

I thought the same as BorntoBubble has been solid and rarely loses possession.
