Re: Fitness Checkin

This weekend is Halloween, so I will be going out and drinking for the last time. Starting November 1st, I am sober and healthy. I'm trying to convince my roommate to join my gym so he can work out with me and keep me honest.

Well I'm a waitress. So walking most of the week is part of my job so next paycheck I'm putting in for a Zumba dvd set to use at home and then paying off a layaway for my New Balance TruTone shoes for work

Re: Fitness Checkin

As I started Weight Watchers a few days, my exercise plan is a minimum of walking for 30 minutes per day and whatever else I can do. Today done my daily walking, plus 10 minutes on an exercise bike. Hopefully later in the day I'll do another 10 minutes

Re: Fitness Checkin

All right, started my new routine today. I am 86 booze for at least the next two months, and I am focused on my diet and weightlifting. Let's get huge!

Did Front Squats and Deadlifts tonight along with some other leg exercises. My legs have always lagged behind the rest of my body, so they are going to be my primary focus over the next couple months.

I know that I'm doing well when I actually want to do legs again.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Progressing well, leveled off at 270lbs so far, but the strength is building..I'm 20 lbs away from my max on bench press, and my other lifts are also getting heavier.

Re: Fitness Checkin

RAMA, out of curiosity, what is your diet like?

As much as I always want to bulk up, I am so lazy when it comes to cooking that I tend to not eat as much as I should.

That said, I'm actually making more progress this time around than I have in years. I've stopped drinking, and that has made a world of difference.

I eat 6 times a day and in larger quantities, about 4800-5000 cals a day..being fairly clean but not anal about it. Eating lots of meat as usual. I let myself drink some egg nog (high in protein but also in fat), more wheat bread, more potatoes. Way more wheat pasta than usual. I've been making wheat protein pancakes for breakast. I also have lots of eggs(egg whites). In short, carbs are increased. I am cooking more than ever.

I'm expecting to get a 465+ bench by Sunday.

Hehe, I was proud of myself yesterday for setting a new personal best in squat and deadlift with 90kg yesterday.
(I could probably do more in the deadlift, but I have trouble with grip strength and blisters on my hands all the time from the weight already. )

I've switched from weights to bodyweight exercises.

Also trying to do at least 30 minutes of qigong a day.

Get some wrist straps. They make a world of difference when doing deadlifts!

I hit it Sunday! Unlike other times when I was in this range, I feel like its not the limit...trying 475 next week.
