Waited till the afternoon for this one. Was 1/2 asleep in the morning. It was grey all day, no chance of seeing the sun. It’s getting me down a bit TBH. Things will improve, but slowly. January is never a month I’m keen to live again after I’ve been through it.
137.5 x 1,
110 x 6, x6, x5
Clean and press - 50 x 7, x6
Squat - 90 x 8, 120 x 6, x5
Ab wheels - 9, 9
Side planks - 48s
Normal plank - 22s (Ab wheels taken it out of me)
Pinches - 10kgs x 68s, x again
So I thought I would try to go heavy with the bench, what with the fact that you’re supposed to be stronger in the afternoon than the morning. The single was a grind - I maybe wouldn’t have got it in the morning, who knows.
So I’m 10kg off my PB of 147.5 now. If I keep up the pace I reckon I’ll be chopping and changing with my PB soon. Maybe in circa 10 weeks’ time, give or take 2 or 3 weeks? I think I can add 1kg per week to the bench.
The weight loss is plateauing, but the waist keeps shrinking, which is good. I must be adding muscle at the same time as losing fat. I’ve set up a really good vector. I just hope I can keep it going, but if I do I’m going to be in prime shape come the summer. I was in really good shape uni days, quite lean, and quite strong. I’m not so lean any more but I’m a lot stronger.
Chicken dinner tonight. Woohoo. Fasting tomorrow.
