Jack Elwood.

works with his dad and brother in the refrigeration business and has done for nearly 3 years. Only really plays poker in Vegas, I'll be rooming with him.

Wish him the very best of luck from me, please. Always thought he was a great player & a decent sort.

will do, you might get the chance to do it in person if you see him in the Rio around the ME time

I'm off to the Irish open for poker tomorrow but after this weekend I should get back to going to the gym 4 times a week. Luckily my gym is getting new equipment in soon so i'll be able to add a leg press and others hopefully. Just keeping reps quite low and will gradly add more weight to push myself while trying to eat a bunch. I'm pretty new to Deadlifts so I'm keeping the weight off until i feel i've got a good grasp of the correct form. Think i might start adding a 1 rep max on the bench press also at the end.

Cheers fellas, I'm away on a stag weekend to undo some good work but I'll report back with a upper/lower routine next week and let you know how I'm finding it.

Been lurking this thread for the past few months while I've got into training. A little background i'm 31 6ft tall and weigh about 165 lbs, so I'm pretty much an Ectomorph. Ultimately I'm just looking to gain a bit of mass and strength, looking to lift to fail and successfully increasing my calories. I've started to plateau a little and I'm looking to change up my routine a little although probably looking to keep the compound exercises.

At present its:

chest/triceps

Bench 65kg 1x6 1x5 1x4
Inclined DB press 3x8 22kg
DB fly 3x6 20kg
12/10/10/8 dips

10min core

Back/Biceps

close grip pulldowns 70kg 4x10
bentover barbell row 55kg 4x10
DB row 20kg 4x20
DB alternative curls 2x6 14kg

10 min core

Legs/shoulders

8/8/6/6 50kg squats ( weak knee through football injury)
DB shoulder press 3x7 20kg
lateral raises 3x9 8kg
upright rows 3x8 14kg
calf raises 4x10 115kg
leg extensions 4x10 60kg

10min core

I plucked this routine off the internet and slightly modified it since my gym is very basic as its a squash/tennis club. Its on my doorstep and i play squash so moving gyms isn't an option. Any advice or pointers would be great to changing things up a bit.



I wouldn't worry about being an ectomorph type build. I was 6'3 and between 65-70KG until my 20s when I went to a wobbly 90. If you eat enough and lift enough you will get there, just may take a bit longer, but then we may end up leaning out easier.

First swap I would do is upper/lower for four days. It increased the frequency of your training and the volume.

Or if you wanted three days, do three full body days.

I wouldn't even do arms if you have three days. Just big ass movements. I do 1 set of biceps triceps at the end of my upper days if I have the energy. Press or pull enough and your arms get PLENTY of recruitment.

I wouldn't lift to failure unless you have great recovery (sleep/water/food) or you're training will suffer in the long run (maybe not if you are training three times a week, but why risk it).

How long have you been training for?

 About 4 1/2 months, pretty happy with my progress, i've added a bit of muscle and weight (hopefully both)

How comfortable do you feel doing the movements? Any favourites?

I'm fine with almost all movements apart from ones which put pressure on the knees. I tore my medial ligaments 3 years ago and because i stopped playing i guess i lost strength/muscle around it which is hindering me when doing squats

Overall thoughts on the success of this program?

Quite good in that i'm reasonably happy with how I'm progessing, however I don't really have anything to compare it to

How do you feel about your food?

I'm a very good/healthy eater in the main. Before i trained I'd have porridge/cereal for breakfast- snack all through till tea time on fruits/nuts/cereal bars biscuits. Tea mainly 300g chicken/brown rice and veg. Or steak and homemade potato fries and veg or salmon/veg an noodles. Now I've added a meal, so i i usually have tuna and baked sweet potato for lunch, soup or sandwiches or tuna pasta mayo. I have a protein shake (aimed at a gainer) which has carbs in it also, although with a banana and a couple of scoops of creatine before i train. When i eat out i generally just eat whatever i fancy and eat 2/3 courses if i can get away with it. I haven't crunched any numbers, but i'd have increased my intake by 40%+ i think (wasn't eating much to begin with!) and my appetite is a lot bigger!

What do you prefer doing, heavy stuff or volume?

At present because I'm lean and in decent nick so i'm looking to lift heavy stuff (build a bit more muscle rather than toning, if i'm on the right lines?)
Play any other sport in the background?

Football up until 3 years ago, cricket which I'm trying to retire from this year, golf (which may inhibit me going to the gym 4 times a week regularly) and squash although I'll only play squash in winter months.

Awesome to have another person involved though, hopefully we can nudge you in the right direction.

cheers any advice towards an upper/lower routine would be great, hopefully i can help contribute here



worth noting my gym has a Smiths machine, an Olympic bar a bunch of free weights but not a great deal apart from a few machines which are mainly leg/core orientated (as its a squash/tennis club)

39  Poker Forums / The Rail / Re: Polk/Torelli Live at the Bike. Early contender for hand of the year? on: February 17, 2017, 02:00:58 PM
I'm pretty sure that's an iffy turn barrel from polk fwiw, I think he's supposed to give up with a few hands and I think 86cc is about the worst hand possible?

I think if we analyse it properly torelli is supposed to call turn and fold river, and polk not supposed to barrel the turn.

Sometimes you gotta look a man in the eyes though :-)

Propa poka

If your saying Polk shouldn't be barrelling the turn, then Torelli shouldn't be calling the turn as the commentator points out.

 I think its unfair saying the commentating is bad, its extremely good content from one of the guys. Whether you guys as a winning player want that sort of content being delivered in the public domain is your problem I'm afraid.

I would need a very good reason to move to London. Probably the worst place I've stayed in and I was brought up in Glasgow!

yeh i agree with that ^^^ Hallaert and Pons come across as decent blokes.

Been really impressed with Ruane, would like to see him or the Czech lad take it down. Bit disappointing the more high profile players have let themselves down, maybe its the stress of playing so many days with little sleep?

Hi Looking to sell 10% total of this package (no more), I've sold 30% to friends so will be keeping 50-60% swaps pending...

31/10- Devilfish Cup £5300 @1.132
3/11- WPT main £2200 @1.181

10%= £860
5%£430
2.5%=215
1%= £86

I've sold to members on here before and once on the site having a deep run in UKIPT London http://blondepoker.com/forum/index.php?topic=60342.0


I've been an online 6/HU cash game reg for the best part of 9 years, 8 years on stars on the regular  tables without a script playing 2/4-5/10 with splatterings of 1/2 and 10/20 at times. I don't have any graphs available as i don't play there anymore but i played under the handle Whollyflush. I now play cash on sky as theraven99 anything from £1/2-10/20.

tournament wise i don't play very many (<3000 lifetime). I've chopped the 2nd chance for $40k in 2013, half a dozen other 5 fig scores, finished 12th in the million about 18 months ago and came second this year in the million for $126k in May. Although i don't play many, my friends/ex flatmates were MTT grinders so i feel i have a decent grasp. http://www.pocketfives.com/profiles/whollyflush/

Live poker wise i didn't play more than 5 comps in a 2 1/2 yr spell as i bought some property and nitted it up. I'm comfortable in a live setting, played a large amount of live cash when i lived in London £2/5-10/20. I've played half a dozen $10k's with no luck so far including busting end of day 2 in the Wsop Main this year. I had a little score a couple of weeks in a local comp that had overlay which regged the day 2.

Seems like the least interest in a huge competition ever. Banning pros seems silly

Guy's ball, he'll take it where he likes, I guess.

Was Pantling not one of the original HSNL crushers on Stars/Tilt?

yep was clockwyze on stars. Wonder how he got in.....
