Ahhh, yes. The double progression method but you’ve made it a one step process instead of two. Looks brutal.


#1964

Woke at 84.2kg - good start to the week. Was feeling very dehydrated after training last night so was glad to see the weight down. With a bit of careful eating and some conditioning should see an 83 this week.


#1965

Woke at 84.2kg again, weight seems to have settled. I was feeling a little beat up yesterday so missed my conditioning and ate a little more protein. Going to need to work harder for the rest of the week


#1966

Managed to get a little walk in after dinner tonight. 3km or 30 mins wearing the weight vest with 14kg (30lbs) in it. It was a cooler night, a little breeze off the ocean and a beautiful bright orange sun set over the horizon. Really nice way to get some fresh air, some peace and quiet and burn a few calories. Happy


#1967

Fuck you and your sea breeze haha sounds like Some good conditioning


#1968

Weight is heading in the right direction buddy. Looking forward to seeing the end result.


#1969

Thanks @kd13

Woke at 83.9kg (184.5lbs) this morning. Pretty happy to see an 83, progress is slow not consistent at the moment which I am sure is a good thing.


#1970

Although we’ve been doing alright the last few days


#1971

Just for you @painter27

Nice pic, I envy you guys downunder when it’s winter here.


#1973

Stop it, just stop it.
I’m heading to Melbourne for a few days on Saturday.
Might even to some beach cardio :+1:


#1974

Holy shit that’s beautiful


#1975

When our next heatwave of 42+*C for what seems like weeks kicks off you won’t envy us :+1:
Another thing about summer here, it seems like everyone has had bloody snakes around their house, heaps of stories lately, but my mate down the road had a brown snake in his pool filter box, and a kid in my class found a red bellied black snake curled up in their motorbike helmet! :thinking:


#1976

My daughter (9) had her first karate sparring class tonight. She did a great job, tried really hard and wasn’t intimidated at all by any of the kids she was paired with. Very proud of her.


#1977

Woke at 84.1kg, slight increase but did eat some slow cooked beef that was a little salty last night and some salted nuts. Training day today, so should be able to drop that a little and get back under 84.

Deadlift
Bar x 10
65 x 10
105 x 5
117.5 x 10 x 5 sets (258.5lbs)
RPE 7, 7, 8, 8 (grip and lungs running out of steam), 9

Big knot in my upper back tonight, it didn’t like deads much !!! Got a tension headache on the last rep. Not good, probably held my breath too long.

Squat
Bar x 10
65 x 5
85 x 5
97.5 x 8 (214.5lbs) RPE 8 the knot in my upper bake wasn’t liking these either
97.5 x 8 RPE 9
97.5 x 8 RPE 8 (longer rest because neighbour stuck his head in the gym to say hi)
97.5 x 8 RPE 9
97.5 x 8 RPE 9

Reps weren’t all below parallel and some were sloppy but they all got done and my legs are fried.

Bench
Bar x 10
65 x 5
75 x 10 x 6 sets (165 lbs)
SS with bent over row
75 x 8 x 6 sets
Bench were touch n go but they all moved good. Only got 6 reps on the last set, then had to rest pause and get 2 more. Rows were a cluster fk. Could barely grip the bar after 5 reps. Not good but got them done anyway.

dumbell hammer curls
12.5kg x max 40 reps - these hurt.

Cut the accessories short tonight, was shattered after a busy week of work, family and training. Pretty glad next week is a deload.


#1979

Took a couple of pics tonight to see how the transformation is going. I started at 87.8kg (193 lbs), 5 weeks ago. This morning I was 84.1kg 185lbs) . That’s a 3.7kg (8lbs) drop in 5 weeks, a little over 700g a week. My waist is definitely coming in but I have a long way to go still.

Nice progress man. Looking swole


#1981

Looking good Simo.
If and when you drop lower, would it affect your lifting?
I’ve come to a barrier in my weight drop. And I’m afraid really going down calorie wise would affect my strength.


#1982

That’s a good question and one we will find the answer to together. I am training higher rep ranges right now so it is hard to see if I’ve lost any strength. Right now I feel good and bar weight and reps are still progressing. I’m hoping I can do a magic trick and lose more weight and get stronger in the next 6 weeks. We shall see.
