TireGuy Log #FatBoySets

Havnt been able to make it to the gym but still doing basics in my room at work
2 x 15 sits up
100 push ups in various sets and variations
40 push ups in single set

trying to eat as low carbs as possible, not counting anything and still enjoying food but making conscious choices to see if I cant drop to 220 without extreme dieting.
Basically just gave up as many sweets as possible.


weighted in at 237 fully clothed with shoes long johns etc on. Bloat is completely gone, ate too much food for dinner and lunch .

Typical day, stretching and 70 push ups today. My neck is bugging me, I slept in and on it weird I guess. Tomorrow will make it for weight training.

Didn’t have much time today, tried to get in what I could.
10 minutes stationary bike on random intervals of difficulty
smith machine benching ( not including bar weight as I have no idea what it is)
10x20 pounds
only did stretching today, slept like shit and wasn’t feeling it.

2 days left until I leave my ice prison. Weighing around 235, in days off ill run a deficient and see if I cant hit under 230 pounds first time since I was 21.

did 60 body squats, push ups and sit ups.

will be nice to be off night shift and sleep longer than 7 hours.

Under 235 today, I weighed that fully clothed… did 120 push ups 3 sets of 4 in 3 different arm variations, used various things at work for a workout. Did 60 squats with roughly 60 pounds, 2 sets of 15 did double hand tricep extensions with 50-60 pounds(chain and steel jackstand),3 sets of 15 single arm rows with 60 pounds.

Thinking about going to do deadlifts at camp, super slow night at work… making for it to drag… can not wait to get out of here Thursday morning…

Finally back at work, so life will be back to routine.

Last two weeks were hectic, did some sight seeing and spend quality time with the new girlfriend.

last 9 days weight training everyday just about here are key things I hit while at home:
Hit 485 deadlift for 1 rep x 2 after not deadlifting heavy since December, bench was 275 x 8 and squats I did 5 x 5 at 225 fairly easily.

Felt weak but the numbers don’t lie, just not peaking or lifting as heavy as often.

will weigh my self later today, suspect im around 235ish.
Also side note, went to meet with new trainer. Waited 30 minutes before leaving, emailed him and he forgot to add me to his calendar… bad start to the new year so will continue until im able to make it back to the city and meet up again.

Address the elbow pain now. It can be a real prick.

Anecdotally, very light high rep hammer curls work well.

I think its just “snapping tricep” acting up, had it bad when I was younger.

But will check it out so it doesn’t bother me more.

Been training religiously still, but forgetting to log as my workload has been upped recently so my free time has been way down. Coming to a realization I need to get my diet in check, over excessive stress eating is killing me with sweets and pastries… need self control and discipline.

But everyday doing 20 - 30 minutes of cardio in the morning after waking up, followed by stretching and compound movements. After work I will do a quick 30 minute training session of accessories like arms, shoulders, back (nothing weighted ie extensions etc.)

I seem to have plateaued at losing weight and cant get under 240 again, but I blame my lack of self discipline not the situation or reactions.

today as follows to try and start again, later I will try to upload a before and after body composition picture to hold myself even more accountable.

cardio - 13 incline - 3.5-4 mph speed incremental increases until finished

stretching (I will learn the name of the stretches I do so I can be more specific) - 10 minutes

deadlift - technique is slowly coming back, no weight belt so this is all raw in converse shoes.
8 x 45
5 x 135
5 x 225
5 x 213
5 x 405
1 x 455

Feeling beat up so stopped there.

Not the first time back in 2 weeks, but first mentionable time. After two weeks of binge drinking basically I felt like absolute crap, reminding myself my goals but did have some fun admittedly.
