Daily Strength Check-In
I think everybody could benefit from seeing others’ results and experiences. I realize there are other forums, but it would be nice to have a more localized group.

This is not about weight loss. This is about gaining strength.

We have some real monsters here that can help the Average Joe.

I m putting my goal out there. 1k lb. club in a year.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
What sort of thing you looking for? I lift for strength, so I'd be interested.

I am 36 pushing 37, so I'm not sure I have a whole lot of incoming PR's, but I'm willing to get embarassed by my lack of progress.

Perfect response.

I’m 5’8. 200 lbs. 42 years old. Pretty fat.

Here was my session today:

Press - 127.5 amrap was 9. Today was a reset from 142.5.

Ez Bar Curls - 35 lbs added to bar 3x12 (I don’t know what the bar weighs)

Dips - 3x8 - my fat arse plus 10 lbs on a chain

Squat - 260 - amrap 8

You can see where I was 8 weeks ago in the Greyskull thread. My hope is for this thread to be a running log for those of us that are lifting.

Damn so, didn't realize you were that strong, colored me impressed.


Right now I am fighting a pinched nerve in my back. Tried lifting last night and it was a no go so just practiced some bodyweight skills and used the rumble roller. Same for tonight. Gonna hit up the chiropractor tomorrow morning and hopefully set a precedent on deads on Wednesday lol.

That’s what I’m talking about. That’s motivation for me. And I might motivate some other old frick. That’s the idea.

Feel free to mock my sorry bench.

Worked up to a heavy 240x3 paused bench. Assistance work was giant sets of weighted dips with 80 lb, JM presses and light pulling.

Strongman circuit/cardio at the end was farmers walks and arm over arm rope pull. I messed my shoulder up pretty bad and this is the first time I've gone over 250 per hand on the farmers walks. 260 per hand was a good night for me.

What's more important, reps or weight?

Do you think gaining strength isn't important to those doing CrossFit?

Just got back from a powerlifting meet. Squatted 515, benched 355, deadlifted 551.

Those were all conservative numbers as I started to low on openers and didn't know pacing of my first meet.

Numbers were more than likely going to be

Squat 530-540
Bench 385-390
Deadlift 585-600

Just curious why you are interested in just gaining strength and not losing fat?

I am interested in losing fat. And I am in fact losing a good deal of fat.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
I am 5' 7.5" and weigh 126 pounds (ordinarily 119 pounds).

My strength training mirrors light weight lifting physical therapy prescribed by my medical teams following my being injured in the line of duty ("ILOD").

I thought to strengthen up for the yard work season; so, I increased my barbell by 2.5 pounds to 14.5 pounds total (weight plates, bar, and collars).  (My dumbells are only collared due to ILOD.) 

That strengthened me, but bulked my physique to my displeasure.

Luckily, another semi-retired officer volunteered to cut and edge my yard(s) for an obscenely low price; which, that will be less than the price of a new size 5 wardrobe to replace my normal unbulked [sic] size 4 wardrobe.

Now, I am in the process of a kinesiology thing called D E T R A I N I N G:
LINK

It's a gamble; at best, I don't know if I can rid the bulk in enough time to avoid apportioning funds for a new wardrobe or not.  At worst, I am planning to use this period to focus on f o r m to sculpture some specific muscles of my physique.

One thing for sure, I may not maintain and build my strength at the 12 pound suggestions of my doctor's.  Yet, I'm still stronger than the eight (8) pound limit of the onset of my ILOD.
