What was your workout today?
What was your workout today?
Today was a rest day, but Thursday, I ran a couple miles and biked 27.
Today was a rest day. In fact I'm off until after my promotion exam on Tuesday. I'm spending the gym time studying.
Goals: After eating like crap for the past two years, I'm looking to cut down to a reasonable bodyfat whilst gaining strength. I have a long and strenuous road ahead of me, but willpower willing, I'll achieve it.
Weight lost thus far: 12lbs after 3 weeks of dieting.
Personal bests: 430 x 3 at 220lbs on bench, 585 x 3 at 220 for deadlift and 550 x 6 for squat at 220. I'm hoping to lose 70lbs and, again, achieve those same strength levels.
RP*: Rest/paused: A ten to fifteen second breath taken between subsequent mini-sets.
This weights workout is after a two-year hiatus from weightlifting.
Incline Bench Press: 275 x 8 + 4 + 2 = 14 RP + weighted stretch
Seated Shoulder Press: 225 x 6 + 4 + 2 = 12RP + stretch
Incline Triceps Extensions (EZ Curl Bar): 105 X 15 + 7 + 4 = 26RP + weighted stretch.
Conclusion: After a two year lifting hiatus, I think this workout was pretty good. Granted, I've always been very strong where chest and triceps are concerned.
Dieting has been very good, so far. Keto (very low carbs; moderate/high protein; high fats) has always worked well for me. I plan to lose no less than 50lbs, willpower willing.

6'2" 205 lbs. I've lost about 38 pounds in the last 7 months thanks to working retail, sweating my ass off (quite literally) in the back room. Today is a rest day (day off) since I've been laid low with the flu since Wednesday night.
It's not that easy being green...
The "Program Minimum" from Pavel Tsatsouline's book Enter the Kettlebell, done with 16 & 24 kg bells… today is my medium day, which means it's about 20 minutes of tough excercise, after which I can return to my decadent lifestyle of slacking off and reading this forum!
Just got in from running a couple miles in the rain.
Today and the past 3 Saturdays: 15 mile bike ride with my wife. Last Sunday: 27.5 mile ride on singletrack - also with my wife. We'll see what tomorrow brings...
Thank you Gillette: your insatiable greed made me go straight (and DE).
About an hour on the mountain with the 29er. Oh Yeah.
I am happy to see this thread again this year. It was a motivation for me last time. We have had nothing but rain for 2 days. I am ready to be back on my bike daily. I took my first ride since surgery Wednesday, not too far about 10 miles but I forgot how hard the hills were I used to ride. For some reason I thought I could just jump back in with both feet. LOL. I think my BP got too high my head and heart felt like they were going to explode. I rode again Thursday, on the trail instead of the road with the family. I had fun, not to painful on the shoulders. Next Thursday my doctor should allow me to remove my shoulder immobilizer Then I will really have no excuse not to be posting here everyday.
Mon -Wed - Friday Lift weights
Tues - Thursday - Sunday - run
Run between 30 min and 60 min on the roads then run steps (Thursday and Sunday) for 20 to 30 min.
Saturday I rest.
Just got home from a 24 mile ride.
I ran intervals today and then hit the kettlebells to finish up my workout.
