I’m off schedule by one day this week.

music selection:  “Uprising” — Sabaton

waist-line: 40 inches

I had a lot of errands to run on Monday and just never made it to the gym as planned.  So I’m on a Tues/Thur/Sat schedule this week.  It is for the best as I tweaked my left wrist somehow last week.  Not sure if it was from lifting or not.

I’m up to 40 or 45 pounds on all exercises.  I’ll be able to use the big bar and power cage from here on out.  The hardest exercise right now is the overhead press.  I can tell I’m going to max out there very soon.  Shoulders are hard!

My weight has been really good, hovering around 197 to 198.  I’m very happy to have settled below 200 for what looks like ‘for good’.   The waistline measurement seems to vary by as much as a full inch from day to day.  I’m assuming that is probably most water.

Slow but steady progress!

Devour your prey raptors!

Bro, do you even lift?

Never miss another opportunity to devour prey!

    How about walking a lot to burn up calories. It is good exercise and easy on the joints. Highly recommended.

    Makes sense you would max out on the press first. Squats and deadlifts should go up more easily for awhile yet. Be sure to keep your abdominals and glutes tight with overhead lifting. It may help a little with your strength and will definitely help stabilize your midsection to be working from a solid base of support.

    I’m interested in your perception of the ongoing ease of bodyweight control as your weight training experience grows. Also if you are finding your desire for “clean” food changing at all.

    Personally, I notice many similarities between investing/trading and strength training. Would enjoy reading your thoughts on this when you feel your experience warrants it.

    Congrats on sticking with it!

      Thanks Richard. I’ve been planning a compare and contrast review between investing and lifting at about the one year mark.
