49 days of "40 minutes of exercise" in a row. Most of the time it was at the gym..All except 2-3 days included some kind of weights. 2-3 times was a 10-12 mile bike ride.
Goal was to drop 2"s on my waist (38.5 to 36.5) in 50 days ... CHECK - Waist was 36" tapped at the largest spot and get weight to 185 consistently....CHECK Down from 195'ish.
Clothes fit great. Size 33 jeans and shirt is 16.5 x 34/35 Slim
Weight today: 183, yesterday 184....Eating better has been key. No sweets, limited fast food and limited alcohol definitely helps. Most of the workouts have been upper/lower split; Usually doubling up on the sets - 12-16 "rounds" i.e - Bench / Row with no break in between (4 sets with medium/heavy weights) Sets 5-12 reps.
15 minutes on tread 5-10% incline / 4.0 speed
Bench 185 x 12 / Row 250 x 10 (4 rounds) No breaks = major heart rate increase
Dips 12-15 / Chins 10 (4 rounds) No breaks
Stand MP press / Hang Clean (4 rounds) No breaks
Triceps overhead press / Bicep/curl (4 rounds) No breaks
(lifting takes about 35 minutes)
Hey Pylon. Not posting here anymore but checking in every few months. This was a very good site for me 2003-2012. Definitely kept me on track and learned a bit. Looking at old workouts and to see if others are still around. How are you doing?
I'm still hitting it 4-6 days - Finally hit 500 on TB deads in 2021 (no straps) / I messed my left wrist up a while ago and the doc said I should not lift anything over 225 ... LOL
Strength is up on Deads but down on pressing movements. Old Man Disease kicking in (bad / super-tight shoulders).
