2016 Goal Adjustments???

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

I never did get to my goal of 205lb back squat as I have been dealing with injuries most of 2015. My right knee, my left thigh, my pec, my elbows. I think my body was trying to tell me something. So I have not pushed it. I still do what I can and I'm still able to go heavy at times, but just not PR type of heavy for squats. On a good note, I got a PR on my bench press last week, I pressed 105 - 5 reps! I probably could have tried 115 but I didn't want to bother someone to spot me. Next time. The funny thing is that I hadn't been doing bench pressing regularly - but I have been doing a lot of push-ups quite regularly, I guess that helped. I need to eat better on the weekends and I know I'll get back down to 135 soon and who knows, maybe I'll finally get to 125 this year!

    Way to go with strength training! I watch in awe that women such as yourself commit to that kind of exercise. Your efforts arei evident in your pics!

    I consider myself pretty strong but I still have too much body fat to show much muscle definition. I've often considered weight training but never pursued. I do mostly cardio/walking and some light hand weights and body weight type classes...

    Keep reaching for your goal weight! I consider a 4 yr 40lb loss maintenace but I just can't seem to hold on to my lo ideal goal weight. I did get there last spring only to have it return but I refocused again!

    I'll be following your progression for inspiration and motivation.

    Nice catching up and keep Sparking! emoticon
