    How did all of you guys get buff for your gas course? There is no way that I can lift a 50kg boiler, I need a good diet and training plan to get buff so that I am able to lift heavy gas boilers.

    Apart from the baxi duo tec I don't think many wall hung boilers are that heavy now.

    How many buff plumbers do you actually see walking around anyway? Most of the ones I see are the exact opposite, unless I walk past a mirror :D

    There’s ways round everything. Used to work with a guy who fashioned a boiler lifter out of a car jack and some steel plates. It was very similar to a genie for lifting heavy steels into place. He tweaked it for long rads too. Very clever. Planning is a massive thing too clear surfaces etc before you begin your final lift

    But boilers go wherever they can , in some bloody awful locations .

    What is the average daily diet and workout routine for a plumber? What do you have for lunch and how many times do you eat a day? Does anyone on here workout at the gym and what does your workout consist of?

    I am a regular at the gym , (not at the minute though) as regards actual workout and eating plans etc , well everyone is different, can I ask what you weigh , roughly.

    I eat 2 or 3 times a day, mostly miss breakfast. For lunch I have whatever I fancy from the nearest shop, chippy or bakers. I used to go the gym until my vasectomy put me out of action for 3 months, never went back after that :(.
    If you want to go to the gym then focus on core workouts. Ask the trainer for a plan to help build your core up which will focus around deadlifts, squats and bench press.
