I started lifting weights in the late 70’s and competed in powerlifting from ‘84 to ‘86 and again from ‘96 to 2000. After that I spent a few years as a powerlifting referee. In between the powerlifting years I concentrated on martial arts and I’ve a few injuries that I have to work around that I picked up over the years.
This year has been one bout of illness after another leaving me in the worst condition I’ve been in for some time (lighter, fatter and weaker), but that’s about to change.
16.4% body fat according to a handheld Omron device. I think that is reading very low but as long as it goes down over time that’s what counts.
I’m using this log to put some pressure on myself to make things happen.
