Sad to hear of it. I hope you can manage to continue what you started.
Thanks, RAMA. Today, I checked my blood pressure and thanks to medicine, I was back in normal range.
Tonight I increased my deadlift to 385 lbs.
I was actually planning to go for 380, but the exact plates were all tied up, so I just decided to push myself a little harder, and I made it.
Just getting back into exercising. I have been suffering with depression for over a year. I am now feeling a little better and trying to get myself out and about more. Went on my first jog/quick walk today. I didn't go far but it counts, I'm hoping to build up my speed and distance quickly. I used to be quite fit so I'm hoping to get back to as I was.
Excellent start, @bajorangirl.
Exercise helped me with that a great deal.
Well... this thread has been quiet for a while.
My previous dead lift personal record was 385 lbs (174.63 kg). Tonight I pushed that up to 390 lbs (176.9 kg), and then 395 lbs (179.17 kg).
I havent posted in here since.... I think 2010 :| Sadly I am in absolutely terrible shape now. I've went from powerlifting, to streamlining my figure/toning up and now back at factory settings after my body collapsed due to a slight lump in my head :/
Only just started back at the gym this week and slightly off putting that I can't lift nearby as much as I used to; laughable in comparison :/
Finding it hard to get inspired to get back into the old routine. Maybe time to use here to inspire me to return to form!
I'm now attempting some old-school dieting. I got a copy of The Scarsdale Medical Diet and am on a slightly modified version. If I forget my blood pressure/anti-anxiety medication, I feel my heart racing and my chest burning. I'm way too heavy and I can't ignore what's happened physically. I'm biking again.
ETA: I've lost seven pounds in under a week and my chest is feeling better.
Broke through to under 100kg on the weigh-in last week - and have been maintaining my lifting level at 80kg as an upper limit. The PT has really been pushing me lately.
Really need to figure out and stick to my macro's, though.
After two weeks, I've lost ten pounds!
