I've sucked a lot since the last time I posted (August 6th?!) - been averaging once every two weeks and I have the lack of gains to show for it:

Standing shoulder press 90#,
Romanian deadlift 150#,
Squat 120#,
Bench press 110#,
Rows 140#,
Asst. pullup 110#.

I'm hoping to get back to doing my penance at least twice a week. Looks like I'll be at Poverty Fatness for another year. I've still got a little room to grow on their dumbbells, and I still can't afford a real gym. Been thinking about craigslisting some weights for home but I don't have anywhere to set them up and I suspect it'd be even harder to get motivated. But progress is more important than results anyway.

I also realized recently that waiting longer between sets makes a huge difference in how much I can do. I guess that's probably obvious to most people, but I was only waiting long enough to catch my breath. Now I'm waiting for my heart rate to drop to around 120 before starting the next set and the following sets are easier than before. I'm also getting a really great buzz, which is a plus. :!!!:

I leave this site for a few years and THIS goldmine falls to the waysides? Not on my watch, motherfuckers!

It's finally getting below 80 here so it's time to throw tractor tires, hit shit with sledgehammers, and as always do heavy deadlifts. At least that's later this week - today is chest and legs.

I've finally started training as well. I'm only able to go twice a week, sometimes three, but I really enjoy lifting weights with my sister and brother-in-law. He's a PT and great fun to train with; both of them are. I much prefer lifting weights than the HIIT I was doing before. I trained for over 90 minutes the other day on legs and the time just flew. 20 minutes of HIIT and I'm fed up.

I'm not naturally a strong guy so it's slow going, but I'll get there. I'm not really sure what numbers I'm hitting, but I hope to be able to leg press the max my gym has (200kg) by next summer and bench press 60kg for reps. I also want to be able to do a proper pull-up unassisted.

HIIT is very hit or miss with me - some days I'm in the zone and others it feels like a chore. IME it's much better to do cardio outdoors rather than with machines, since you're actually going somewhere instead of stuck in a stationary place. Weights, on the other hand, are never a problem.

Any reason why you're doing leg press instead of squats? And the thing with pullups is being able to do 1 unassisted is a pain in the ass, then going from 1 to 2 is kind of hard, 2 to 3 is easier, but then you're able to go from 3 to "all the pullups" almost seamlessly. How I built myself up to those was doing chinups, lat pulldowns, and assisted pullups. And attempting unassisted pullups as well, but that should be a given.

Yeah, I think I'd prefer HIIT if I were with a big group of people in a field or tennis court, something like that, just running around breaking a sweat. In my living room on my own, even with Dillinger played at loud volumes, I was never pumped at all.

I just want to hit 200kg leg press because it's the max weight. I'm doing squats as well of course. As of yet don't know what my max is. I think I could do 80kg, but I'm not sure. Probably 70kg is my safe max right now. Like I said, I'm not inherently strong. I've spent most of my life behind a computer screen, playing a guitar, or reading. I was never the 'go out and build a shed' type of guy. I built computers instead, played guitar, wrote stories, that kind of thing. Nothing that ever involved lifting heavy stuff.

I imagine pull ups are as you describe them. Once you can do a few you should be free sailing.

Been out of training for almost 2 years now. Totally a bummer but life has its requirements at the moment which leaves me with very little time for anything besides work and the baby.

Went for a run this morning and thought I was gonna die. Too much beer and weights, not enough cardio.

Double posting, get at me.

As I've gotten older I've realized that my strength gains have plateaued or, worse, gone down no matter how hard I push. Aging is a motherfucker, mane, so rather than fight it and get "enhanced" (something I would never ever consider and strongly dissuade anyone from doing) I've decided to shift my goals - 2 mile run every morning, bro split MWF, calisthenics on T/Th/Sa. So today will be chest/tris, tomorrow will be abs and leg-focused calisthenics, etc.

That's interesting about cutting back on portions as you got older. That could be a challenge for a lot of people who have been conditioned to enjoying large meals.

So this is some bullshit:



tl;dw - Facebook won't let this guy promote a (paid) bodybuilding video because it "promotes weight loss" and might trigger Facebook users.

PROTIP: When using your gym's heavy bag, remember to keep your wrist straight and in line with your forearm. I'll be in a wrist brace for the next 2 weeks :omg:
