What was your workout today?
Wow, that's quite the workout! Sounds like you're doing goodGoals: After eating like crap for the past two years, I'm looking to cut down to a reasonable bodyfat whilst gaining strength. I have a long and strenuous road ahead of me, but willpower willing, I'll achieve it.
Weight lost thus far: 12lbs after 3 weeks of dieting.
Personal bests: 430 x 3 at 220lbs on bench, 585 x 3 at 220 for deadlift and 550 x 6 for squat at 220. I'm hoping to lose 70lbs and, again, achieve those same strength levels.
RP*: Rest/paused: A ten to fifteen second breath taken between subsequent mini-sets.
This weights workout is after a two-year hiatus from weightlifting.
Incline Bench Press: 275 x 8 + 4 + 2 = 14 RP + weighted stretch
Seated Shoulder Press: 225 x 6 + 4 + 2 = 12RP + stretch
Incline Triceps Extensions (EZ Curl Bar): 105 X 15 + 7 + 4 = 26RP + weighted stretch.
Conclusion: After a two year lifting hiatus, I think this workout was pretty good. Granted, I've always been very strong where chest and triceps are concerned.
Dieting has been very good, so far. Keto (very low carbs; moderate/high protein; high fats) has always worked well for me. I plan to lose no less than 50lbs, willpower willing.
Years ago in junior high and high school when I actually ran regularly, I loved it. By far my favorite time to run, but today when it was 46 degrees and I was out sick all last week, I wasn't too happy about it, but I'm proud of myself for staying on my little training schedule.Ironically this is something I thoroughly enjoy. A long relaxed run in warm summer rain is awesome. Now, running in the cold... no thank you!
