  1. Hi everyone! It's been a while. Sorry. Things have been going great actually. I went from that weird low calorie whole foods diet, to counting calories and eating a ton, to finally just eat whatever I feel like which apparently has been low cal, low protein. Nevertheless I've lost a lot of weight, waist, hip and thigh size which was and still is my goal. Unfortunately that means muscle mass too. I've hit a wall on Starting Strength. Actually starting to probably go back a little. Most likely due to the low calorie, low protein thing. But at the moment I'm really happy
  2. I was eager to do the last challenge but I came in a bit late so I'm excited it reset and I can participate in this one. Goal #1 - Consistency My biggest problem in the past is not being able to stick to a program. I get easily distracted or something hurts and I end up wandering off the garden path. My primary aim for this challenge is to hit my program 90% or better consistency. This is to allow for unforeseeable circumstances should I not be able to get to the gym one day. 90% is still 85% better than what I have been getting in the past. I track this by having
  3. For the last challenge, my bonus/life challenge was to take an Intro to parkour class, and the follow-up safety class before March. Although I am the oldest and slowest student there (mid-thirties and I feel old, wow), I love parkour. The movements, the strength, the endurance, and just the "I can still do things like this" feeling that it gives is amazing. I will not say I'm good at it, but I want to keep working at it. Unfortunately, full-time work and evening grad classes mean I haven't got much in the way of time or money, so I'm only going to be able to go every other weekend. If one goes
  4. Hi guys, I've been doing the startbodyweight.com routine in the past for 6 continuous months and then stopped for about 6 months...Now I'm back at it and I find myself at the same place where I was 6 months ago, I'm progressing slowly but surely almost at every exercise but I'm stuck on the squats progression. I can do 3 sets of 12 reps of bulgarian split squats so in theory I should be switching to the next progression (shrimp squats), but for some reason I'm not able to go all the way down, especially when doing it with my left leg... What are my options to get better at this one-legged squ
  5. So I have always used the Stronglifts app because it's free, functions well, and well... I was doing that program. I find as I modify more and more it becomes less and less useful. I am typing more notes as I do more stuff and the prompts annoy me. At this point I am doing 3x5 and not progressing each workout because I am really just trying to preserve muscle while losing fat. So Ideally an app would be *Free... you could't yank a greasy penny from betwixt my glutes with a tractor. * have a timer * Be simple * have charts and graphs. Any ideas?
  6. The BALANCING ACT Do you find yourself wanting more balance? We are all about moving from one place to the next. That's what Scouts do. How can we do that with more finesse and dexterity? Do you want to be able to do something that you haven't yet accomplished? Improve something that has been just out of reach? YES! I'd be so excited if I could... ... run trails with awesome turns and sudden drops. ... do slacklining. ... pull the same amount with both arms while doing the freestyle part of my swim program. ... maneuver through traffic more confidently on my bike. ... walk on icy sidewal
  7. I just finished reading "Convict Conditioning" and want to start training according to it. Alas, the "Self Coaching" chapter wasn't as detailed as I had hoped. So I'm still not sure how to start the program. First of all, Paul Wade recommends warming up by doing a 2-4 sets (depending on the individual) of easier variations before proceeding to the working sets. But how do I warm up when I'm at step one with an excercise? Then, how do I determine the rep counts of my working sets? Here's how I understood the program. Let's use push ups as an example. From what I've read, I'd probably do one
  8. Hiya Everyone, I've seen a pile of posts in the last couple of days of the "how much should I do/am I doing too much" variety, and thought I'd throw this very appropriate link out there. http://www.jtsstrength.com/articles/2013/05/10/optimal-training-the-death-of-over-and-under-training/ Enjoy the weekend! Edit - Ooops! Very much in the wrong forum. If a mod sees this feel free to move it to the appropriate forum area!
