High all. Goals are sub 200lbs by end of June. Fix triglycerides and get stronger.

History: wrestled in HS. Messed around with weights on and off since then. Never dialed in diet for more than 3 months at a time. I tend to let it fall to the wayside when work and obligations get stressful. Wrist and shoulder injuries sidelined upper body for roughly 6 months. Still slowly working back up. Have also torn rib cartilidge in my chest and back at one point or another. These are all BS excuses for why I look chubby and DYEL. This will get better, it needs to or I’ll die earlier than necessary.

Currently: 233 lbs 5’10" 28YO
Measurements:
Neck: 16.5
R forearm: 13
L forearm: 12.75
R upper arm: 14.25
L upper arm: 14
Chest: 44.5
Shoulders: 55.5
Waist @ ribs: 40.25
Waist @ navel: 40.5
Waist @ belt: 41
R thigh: 28
L thigh: 28
R calf: 17
L calf: 17.5

Had a stomach flu bad this week. Didn’t eat any food for the past 2 days. Couldn’t eat this morning. Today turned out to be:

Calories: 766, p-f-c: 77-34-38 (only ate dinner and a snack)

Activity: hauling firewood and chasing the wife after I felt better. Will try and hit some conditioning tomorrow if I’m human again.

Excellent effort on the new OHP PB!


#13

PR’s every workout?

Nice PRing though


#14

I wanted 405 real bad. Might have had it too. But just Leary of being greedy.


#15

Just checked your log. You’re 30lbs lighter than me. I would hope that at least 1 of those pounds I have on you is lean body tissue. It went up real smooth in you video, good work.


#16

Appreciate it! I don’t subscribe to the bigger or smaller thing too much, I just look at the numbers, and I like your numbers, ha! We’re pretty close in OHP and Squat, it’ll be nice to have another guy around my strength numbers!


#17

Lol Between you @Despade and a couple of others I feel like there’s been a surge in PR hitting recently.

I only threw up once today. This damn thing might finally be over. Either that or I’m patient zero for the walking dead. I expect most of the lost weight to come back as water when I’m healthy.


#20

Same dude. I probably could’ve hit 405 like last year, but but I too always restrain myself for whatever reason.
