    just to check in a bit..

    I've reached my goal of 140 lbs, up from 135.

    Here in Africa, we have a wicked sweet work out facility -- a gym with all kinds of equipment, a huuuge running trail we can listen to music on, and I have some work out DVD's with me that I'm going to start implementing into my routine.

    Currently, I work out once a day for 5 days. I'll go to twice a days after I get settled into my permanent residence, but I dont have the clothing nor can I settle down completely yet for all of that. I hope I don't lose weight here.

    Last week as predicted 4/3.
    This week so far 1/3. And like Kyuuei, I am, for certain, gaining weight again (slowly). Glad to see more workouts being posted.

    I have a membership to the YMCA. And I want to drink smoothies, damn it, but the type c search fails me. Or I fail it.

    Congrats to anyone who was able to make it all the way.

    It was a real bad 6 months for me with two family deaths, tons of stress, and unexpected travel. Nonetheless, I'm looking to try again for the next 6 months.

    I don't know about actually having another contest, but if anyone is interested in Setting another 6 month goal period and continuing to maintain diet and exercise blogs it would be awesome if we could do it together.

    That does sound awful. I hope the next six months are much better. Quite truthfully, I didn't think of this actually being contest....I had messaged Zoom saying that I didn't care about the contest and just wanted to keep the green username...WHICH I DID! I'm willing to try another six months....although I would probably have to quit in May.

    From a goals perspective, I should still have my green username, but I didn't keep up with posting updates, so....

    Good month of increases. Maxes are now 255/305/305 for bench/squat/deadlift. I've noticed bench presses progress a lot slower than my other lifts and the "weakness" during the lift is not typically chest weakness, but the supporting muscles give out. Shoulder gets weak, triceps get weak, elbows CRACK [wtf? Hate my joints] and while my chest is always sore it never feels like it takes the full brunt of the workout. While with squat and deadlift, always feel it in the right places and the lift never feels stressful on joints, just difficult in the muscle groups. I've had my form looked at by others and they tell me I'm good, I just have "long arms." So I've been focusing on endurance and strength a bit more with bench presses, more reps with lighter weights, in between my days when I try to progress. Did 100 @ 135 in just over 10 minutes, trying to speed that up a bit. Not sure if that's going to help but we'll see.
