Since our 35 and over section seems to be lacking some new subjects, I thought I would start a new one.
Recently this year I hit a personal fitness goal of my own. I was wondering what recent goal other guy/gals have achieved this year. It is motivating to hear about fellow 35+rs that are still giving it hell.
I think back to school has a lot of people off the forums. Unfortunately I've just restarted my training which is a good goal in of itself. As of tomorrow I'll have made it through my first cycle of 531 without missing a workout or quitting because I usually get sick a few weeks in to starting to workout. Probably due to overdoing it right off the bat and unable to recover. So I consider myself in good standing to keep going.
Hit my goal this year iam 38 years old I lift viscously at the gym my goal was set at 230lbs on cycle shit bro iam 233lbs after cycle and pct and now iam busting out with a new cycle that I started today next goal 240lbs by spring oh by the way doublelunger love the name iam a avid hunter iam counting down to opening day of bow season bro
Doing bottom breathing squats-tonights max was 445 for 5 breaths at the bottom and tomorrow is 450 lbs. My goal is to reach 600 lbs or so with the bottom breathing squats. The BBS is a different monster than regular squats and I'm excited to see how they improve my max. Lifting 5 to 6 days a week now on a Bulgarian style program and loving the thrashing my body is undergoing.
Oh yeah, I'm using no gear-only raw lifting with a belt sometimes.
First time poster, but long time female almost 42 yr old lurker here. Saw this thread and had to report my deadlift pr. I know this isn't heavy compared to some of the awesome powerlifting women on this site, but I pulled 215 on my deadlift for the first time ever, which happens to be 1.5x bodyweight. I felt like an idiot with the sh*t-eating grin on my face for the rest of my workout, but the most I had ever attempted before that was 185, so I was stoked!
I love reading your logs, and seeing that I'm not alone in my trials and tribulations. Thanks to all of you on the O35 and the powerful women forums who have given me encouragement throughout the last few years to persevere without even knowing it.
