I'm about 9 pounds heavier than I want to be and I've been telling myself for years that I was going to change my eating habits and get down to 10-12% body fat. I've finally given up and decided that I'm going to eat for girth.

I may be old, but I can darn sure outlift most of these young bucks!

Thanks guys. I wont be posting too much but I can assure you I will be in the gym a minimum of 4 days a week and probably 5-6 days.

Right now to ease back in Ive broken up my normal workouts into 2 separate days so I may be in there 7 days for the first few weeks.

36 miles on my bike yesterday but did not drop any pounds. Another plateau? Probably, as it happens every dang 2 weeks or so. Frustrating as heck but NO EXCUSES.......keep pushing.

Wow! 13.2 running is only a dream right now for me. But it is in the back of my head for the future. If my right calf would loosen up I think I could at least start running on a regular basis.

I need to realize I must do the same at this point. I am overly gung-ho when I start as my mind thinks I am back in college throwing steel around.

Oscar are you varying your speed on your rides or pretty much staying in the same zone for the entire ride?

Oh yea! Pushing pretty hard, changing gears, getting huge lactic acid burns in thighs. Just finished 12.44 miles before the rain. Gonna hit it again in an hour or so. My body figures out it is under pressure and hangs on to the reserve fat like a tick on a hound. All good, as I will win!

Brother I know that feeling all too well. If you are using any type of heart rate device, try to sprint if on flat land or climb a hill as hard as you can for a few minutes getting your heart rate up into the low 170s then throttle it down until your heart rate is in the mid 120s to mid 130s then stay there for a few minutes and repeat.

It is crazy how well our bodies adjust to what is going on whether it is exercise or diet. We have to keep our bodies guessing at what is coming next. And yes, we will win! Keep it up!

You are the 2nd person to tell me about a heart monitor. I know nada about them but will look into it. Is this a Academy Sporting Goods item or a specialty item?

I have a garmin vivo 3 music watch that has all sorts of functions on it including heart rate monitor. Simply wear it on your wrist like any watch and switch over to the HR mode when exercising if you want to keep track of what is going on there. It is very helpful in the quest to burn fat effeciently while exercising. I just gave you some ballpark heart rate numbers to aim for but they should work. Basically Im getting you into zone 3 which burns more carbs than fat and then takes you down into the low end of zone 2 which burns more fat than carbs. The more time spent in zone 2 equals more fat burned but you dont want to be there 100% of the time. Spiking your heart rate and then letting it come back down is where it is at for cardio. There are all sorts of plans to do it. I just gave you a simple one that is easy to control while bike riding. I love the bike because it is so much easier on my balking knee than running on a treadmill or outside on the pavement.

I'm pretty sure I tore some stuff up on Friday. After hitting my head on the attic entrance door jam I had a HUGE abdominal cramp. It was so bad I had this huge lump just below my rib cage on the the right side. I swear it looked like my wife's abdomen when the baby would stick a foot out. My first thought was I was going to die in the loft and my second thought was it was a hernia. It's gone away, but it hurt for quite some time. Any ideas?

Today was back and leg day. Supersets 3X8-10

Bodywieght wide grip pullups/supersquat/incline situp
BB row inverse grip/sled leg press/ab roller
V-bar row/bodyweight ring pullup/incline leg raise

I made to the gym 5 times last week. Also got on the bike 4 times as well to log some afternoon miles. Yesterday was chest, biceps, calves and some stretching then put in a little over an hour on the bike when I got home.

Bench press strip sets/curl bar with handles/sled leg press
Incline cable fly/prone leg curl/BB curl
Push up/incline DB curl/leg extension

Heading in shortly for the 5th time this week. Only got on the bike once this week but played golf a couple times. Lots of walking there because we are cart path only this month and I never hit it by the cart path, lol.

I'm trying to drop from 220 to 210 for summer, and I'm at 215 today so on track losing about 1 lb per week. Today was just a quick abs/arms workout.

4 sets each
tri ext's
wrist curls
hammer curls
lat raises
overhead press
decline sit ups

Sunday is also the day I cook for the week and do all my meal prep. Dinner is always easy to eat clean because I'm home, eating out for lunch is a constant struggle lol.

A good start to the day. Kicked my own butt today and I like it. Giant sets for chest, biceps, legs and abs to boot. It's a good thing the pre-workout kicked in.

Incline chest press on smith every setting to flat/leg extension, preacher curl and incline situp on each setting as well
Incline chest press on smith every setting to flat/prone leg curl, hammer curl and ab roller on each setting as well
Seated wide grip chest press/supersquat/curl bar with handles
Push ups/arm blaster curls

Probably stick with the giant sets all week.

Shoulders, traps and core followed up with stretching and a 45 minute bike ride. Today was the first time since I started back that I attempted my entire core workout. Ive been easing into everything to make sure there are no back issue. I did the most basic movemonts and will had some difficulty as I can. Let me say it still kicked my butt! Everything feels good so onward!

I'm going to feel it this afternoon for sure. Skipped the giant sets today and went back to supersets and I'm glad I did. Ibuprofen don't fail me now!

Landmine strip sets/weighted dips/incline situps
Overhead lat pull/skull crushers/leg raises
Bodyweight pullups/cable kickbacks
Rope pushdowns/cable lawnmowers

Just reading through, great job guys, way to stay at it.

This year has thrown me off a little but i'm getting back on track. I quit my career job of 10 years to start my own business in January and that threw my routine for a loop.

I got COVID in March and that really killed my endurance even further.

Back on it now and riding a ton in preparation for the MS150. Well more like MS100 this year. Katy to Kyle Field in BCS.

My weight dropped down to the lowest ive seen in many years from the VID, trying to put a few back on. i'm 6' 2" and just under 185 right now. I feel better around 190 so trying to get back up a bit. With all the riding though, good lord, I never stop eating. Burning around 4K a day right now.

Anyhow, just checking in. God Bless!

Friday was a kick butt giant set day. I got legs, back and chest done. I don't even remember what I did but i do remember strip sets on landmines and leg press. It was awesome.

Today was chest and bicep supersets.

Incline DB chest press every setting to flat/preacher curl/incline leg raise
Bench press strip sets/hammer curl after every strip
Seated wide grip chest press strip set/drag curl
Seated wide grp chest press strip set/curl bar with handles
Inverse grip bench press on smith/overhead cable curl

Back and legs tomorrow.

I made it to the gym 6 of 7 days last week. We had our granddaughter Saturday until today so that was a workout in itself, lol. Once her mom picks her up today, I'll head in for triceps, back and calves.

On another note, last week my wife decided to join me after being out of the gym for 2+ years. It was a struggle for her but she isnt backing down. Im glad to have her back at it.

Hey fellas, just reading the thread after blowing by it for years..
Have yall ever tried Orange Theory (OTF)?
3 years ago i had an episode on the mountain.. It was due to me being out of shape. Thought i was gonna die on that mountain. Needless to say, if i ever wanted to elk hunt again, i need to be in shape..I joined OTF a few months after that trip. I have been after OTF 4/5 days a week since and its been a game changer. Best shape i have ever been in even when playing college ball 15 years ago. If you are looking for a good workout day in/out i would highly recommend trying a OTF. If your looking to get "swole" its not the gym for you of course because of the HIIT training..

Awesome! It's great to have Mr. rtp in there with you. My wife hits the box every morning and works out with the crossfit folk. When she's not in the box she's in the gym with me working out.

Im familiar with it and the concept is tried and true. For overall fitness there probably isnt anything better.

A good way to start the day...strip sets for back and legs. This is probably the heaviest and most stress I've put on my legs since my hip replacement. Rigor mortis is already setting in!

3 sets each:

Landmines/Sled leg press/leg raises
Overhead cable pull/Leg extension/ab roller
Bodyweight pullups/prone leg curl/incline situp

I haven't worked out in close to 4 years. I'm headed to CO for backcountry elk in September and have heard the horror stories of issues on the mountain. I started a blended strength/HIIT gym 3 weeks ago to make sure I can enjoy the hunt and not fall victim to the MTN.

good call! The mountain and high altitude is no joke.
I just finished the book "cant hurt me" by David Goggins.
if you want to feel like a P**** just read that..
it has changed my attitude every time hitting the gym!
Stay at it!
