This log is just about personal improvement. I have been inspired by Alpha’s log and decided to start my own. I am not in the same stratosphere as he is though, or in that of a lot of people on this site.
I started 2 yrs ago @ around 290 lbs of fatassedness. I worked my way down to around 200. Currently sit at 225. I am still too fat, too weak. Spending most of my lifting time on fat loss I did not make the strength gains that I could have. As a result, that is my focus right now. Eating lots of solid foods and getting stronger. I am not even weighing myself. As long as I am getting stronger, I am not worried about anything else right now. I have decided that I will never look the way I want until I can put some weight on the bar.
Here’s a few of my last sessions just to give an idea of where I am and to help track progress.
6/6 - Incline BB - 135 x 10; 155 x 7
Flat BB - 185 x 4; 205 x 2
Flat DB - 60 x 10; 50 x 12
6/8 - BB Rows - 175 x 9, 6
CG Bench - 155 x 9; 175 x 5; 185 x 4
1 arm DB row - 80 x 8,5; 55 x 14
Dips - plus 45 lbs x 10, 10
Deads - 315 x 2, 1, 1, 1,
I am pathetically weak, I know, but that is what this is all about. I also ran a mile this morning. I hate cardio w/ a passion, but am forcing myself to ease into actually doing it. I love to lift weights, but have struggled w/ the mental aspect of the cardio.
Below I will post today’s log.
