Thanks for the invite! Unfortunately I am leaving Tuesday night. I’ll be back in 3 weeks, I’ll let you know the exact dates when I find out.


#804

Thanks @bigjez and @ChickenLittle 8 years of contributing on this site, without accomplishing my goal.


#805

Cool man, let me know.


#806

But! Have you made progress?


#807

Yea… for sure. Last 3 years I have. It’s the break in between. I’ll post a photo soon enough of my ‘post getting married’ start. Moreso disapointed in myself for not pushing things. My career has really taken off and I alllow my stress eating to out weigh my desire to cut up.

In other news… back still hurts. Good news… FB marketplace is the greatest invention. Since I drive up and down the interstate, I buy old gym equipment or tires from rural areas and sell them up in populated areas. It’s paying for all the mods on my truck. Haha.


#808

Progress is progress! Just keep moving foward.
I scored a helluva deal on some plates on FB marketplace!


#809

You’re familiar with OR, if I remember correctly? Between Cottae Grove and Grants Pass is a treasure trove of gym equipment. $20 for 400lbs in weights and two bars.

Tuesday Night
42 minutes of treadmill

Wednesday Morn
30 Minutes of treadmill

Thursday Morn
25 Mjnutes of treadmill

Friday Morn
One giant set of 50 KB Rows per arm.

Friday

Hell of a day. Can’t even begin to explain.

Front Squats
5x10x95lbs - 20 second rest.

Trying to loosen up my back. It’s still pretty tight. I probably did 12 sets with just the bar. Hoping to get a decent leg day in tomorrow.

Saturday

Back is a bit achey. Did 50 KB Swings in the morning.

Then fixed lawn mower and decided to mow without the AWD on. Forgot how much work it is to now. Then 4 hours of weed whacking and cleaning.

Afternoon workout
KB Swings
1x100x40lb - light enough weight to hit cardio failure before muscle failure.

Front Squats
3x12x95lbs - just trying to keep it light and focus on quads. Have a feeling my back couldn’t handle too much load.

KB Swings
1x75 - no way 100 was in me. Ha.

Pullups throughout workout.

Legs are cramping, hands are shaking, hoping for some good weight loss this month :wink:


#812

My legs are toast today. Specifically my hamstrings. Might try and lift later, might not.

Also… just found a hack squat machine for dirt cheap. Will be my newest addition if this guy gets back to me.


#813

Monday

50 KB Swings

OHP Press
5x135
5x155
2x1x185

Hangclean and Press
3x10x135

KB Press

Tuesday
20 minutes of cardio

EDIT: I’m also starving. Think that’s a good thing.

Friday

How the fuck is it Friday already? Anyway… wife went to ER yesterday morning and had surgery that night. Will be home from hospital tomorrow. Sadly, the couch in the room hasn’t been good for my back. I was able to sneak in a few Pullups when I ran home for supplies.

Will be back to hit it (mildly) hard tomorrow.


#815

Hope everything is well mate


#816

Thanks man. Things are getting better. Wifey is feeling better, although on bed rest for the next few weeks.

Sunday
KB Rows
3x20x40lb
3x12x60lb

Pullups
25

Monday
Hang Cleans
3x5x135

Front Squat
3x4x135
2x3x185
2x20x95

KB Narrow Stance Squat
3x15x60lb in each hand

Kept it fairly light without breaks.

Diet has been good. No cheating in the last week. Hoping that posting my daily diet will help me squared away:

Breakfast
Protein Bar

Didn’t have much time, was racing to get things situated, take care of a hurt chicken and head to work.

Lunch
Cup of Rice
Cup of Mac n’ cheese
1/3lb of beef

Dinner
Burger and Fries

I mean, not great… but probably under my TDEE. Also, today was day 2 of 4 on albuterol. I’m doing 4 on - 6 off.


#817

I’ve been an irregular visitor on the forums of late, so I just saw your post about wifey… Hope all is getting better.


#818

Sorry to hear, hope all is well man.

Is this a nickname for your wife, or one of your actual hens?
