    I've had a new patio laid. It's slightly lower than the old one. There is damage to the bricks to the level of the old patio. My builder says it's frost damage as it's under 5he dpc and therefore not on him to fix. My opinion is that he needs to fix it, and that it's damage caused when the old flags were removed.

    Would frost damage be to blame, or is he talking nonsense as I suspect he is ?

    Damage lines up perfectly with the old patio level

    I've never tried them tbh. Just remember seeing that vid and thinking how bonkers they were.

    No, but maybe . You don't need to. Plenty of bodyweight stuff you can do at home with no kit .

    It'll be easier in 5he gym with pull up bars, dip stations etc . And unless you have something that looks like a pullup bar at home/ in a park, training back will be tricky

    They are both expensive imo, anything branded can be found for less elsewhere.

    Bought a bath from Victorian, as they were the only place with it in stock a while back . They forgot to send the legs with the bath. Took much time and effort from me until they got it sorted. Would not recommend- expensive and shit customer service

    Jim Wendler also has some good articles on mobility drills and conditioning drills too. Some of it is in 5he 5/3/1 books I think, plus some articles online

    Edit: it's the DeFranco Agile 8 he recommends for strength based mobility

    Yeah , consistency can be hard with a normal life outside the gym . I do think something like 5/3/1 will be a challenge of you can't be consistent though .

    Have you looked at the Mike Matthews bigger leaner stronger programs? They have 3 day splits . I really enjoyed doing those workouts, and saw good progress. He has some good advice on balancing diet and strength gains too. All common sense stuff really, but well articulated.

    There are a ton of conditioning based programs too which I think fits the brief of fit and healthy
