Big_Show Posted January 4, 2022 Report Share Posted January 4, 2022 I decided to come back to the forums this year and thought it was time for a new Battle Log! I was due to get married in August 2020, but then the world shut down and we were forced to postpone. But now at long last we're coming up to the rearranged date in July 2022 and so it's time to get ready for that wedding suit fitting again! To keep myself on track with all this I've decided to set up shop in the Battle Logs rather than the Challenge Forums, as I intend to stick to the same basic shape of the programme I've been following for the last year or so and setting up the same challenge over and over again makes for a bit of a repetitive read. Plus I then get stuck trying to update daily instead of actually doing the stuff I need to, and end up dropping off the boards yet again... I've been following Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 programme (starting off with very low weights at the beginning) and continue to make progress with my lifts - last month saw me set PBs in the Military Press, Deadlift, and Bench Press - and I intend to carry on with this as long as progress continues. I know that if I stick to roughly 2500 calories/day (averaged out across the week) I will lose weight, although ultimately I don't care about my weight so much as my waistline. My main target therefore is to strive for consistency above all, to balance out the inevitable wobbles and planned deviations that will occur in the next half year. I've started off this year back up to 115.0kg (lots of fun was had over Christmas), but I feel certain this will drop back off nice and quickly enough. My PBs currently stand at: Military Press - 52.5kg x4 Deadlift - 135kg x3 Bench Press - 77.5kg x4 Squats 95kg x3 (numerous ankle/calf/knee injuries seem to stop me progressing quickly here, but at least the leg press is still going up) The basic shape of my plan is therefore: - 4x gym workouts per week - average out at roughly 2500 calories/day (target will vary as my weight decreases) - go for a walk every day So now it's time to get to work! 3 Quote Big Show: Human Swift Hunter Respawning.
