Fitness Catch-All

I just want to put a shoutout to Cronometer. It's been SO MUCH BETTER than the bloatware of MyFitness pal. It also has a great web app to boot. So much of Myfitnesspal is behind a paywall whereas Cronometer gives you all the essential things for free. If you're tracking your macros, give it a shot. It's helped me on my cut losing 15 lbs over the past 3 months.

Day 88.

Starting weight: 270
Current weight: 239.4

I am hoping to sustain this current rate. My motivation has a dipped a bit the last 10 days but crossing 240 was a big mental boost.

I finished my 18th Spartan Race last weekend, the Asheville Sprint. I'm pleased with my prep, what with my running streak (sitting at 579 days today) and participating in an OCR workout at an OCR gym every week for the preceding 6 weeks. My knee, knock on wood, has been behaving and letting me run more than a mile for a while now. As such, I had my best finish ever, finishing 3rd in my age group and in the top 1% overall in the open division.

Congrats to both of you! Awesome work.

Yesterday I hit Day 100 on my 30-minutes of aerobic exercise streak. Mission accomplished. For the time being, I'm going to stick with it. Starting about 20 days ago I added in "6+ hours of FitBit sleep" and that's been going well too. I've noticed a difference in my energy and concentration.

My tentative plan is to get to Day 160, then start a focused effort on better nutrition.

Not much to add to the conversation other than a sweet deadlift PB! Tried out the uni's gym yesterday and it was really solid. Lots of barbells, good equipment...But really limited plates. I was going to try for 5kg above my best, but could only find two 5kg plates so...I went from 160kg to 170kg (375lb)! That's nice little bump over double-body weight for me, and a number I've been trying to hit for about 2 years now.

For reference, when I resumed working out 6 months ago, my PB was 140kg. Prior to that, when I was being coached, my PB was 155kg.

REALLY proud of that one. Onwards to 200kg.

That's a great milestone mate. Well done.

2X is a great achievement on the journey.

I agree.

I am back into legs, but my first workout was 285x5x3 for deads. Long way to go.

Be glad you aren't using squared off plates. I've got scarring about 15" up my shins from those things settling backward when I put them down.

Update from a previous post, I did go to Muscle Activation Techniques twice now. I do like what they do. I do know that it is helping with my knee injury. If you're stuck with current injuries, or looking at a new approach to treatment, give their website a look. Lots of practitioners across the globe.
