Week 7 Starts

Weighed myself today and to my dismay there has been no change in my weight :(

I was hoping that the consistent weight loss that happened over the last 6 weeks to continue. Maybe my body is fighting the weight loss or something. I will wait and see how weight does next week.

My weight lifting numbers have not changed with the exception of requiring less assistance with chinups (50 lbs vs. 60 lbs last week).

Preacher Curl performance remains same at 70 lbs making me doubt my original numbers in that regard. My trainer is not concerned and says that my form is much better with full rangeof motion and that initially I was not doing that well.

I can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks since I started my mission to get back in shape. I feel better than ever and have lots of energy.

Most of my numbers have gone up this week and I am quite happy.

Lat Pull Down : 120 vs. 105 lbs 2 weeks earlier

Seated Row: 120 vs. 110 lbs 2 weeks earlier

Triceps Push Down: 80 lbs vs. 75 lbs 2 weeks earlier

Triceps Extension: 90 lbs (unchanged)

Leg Press: 360 lbs vs. 315 lbs 2 weeks earlier

Shoulder Press: 100 lbs vs. 90 lbs 2 weeks earlier

Seated lateral raise: 95 lbs vs. 80 lbs 2 weeks earlier

Rear Deltiod: 100 lbs vs. 90 lbs 2 weeks earlier

Leg Extension: 80 lbs vs. 70 lbs 2 weeks earlier

The only regression seems to be in the biceps muscle group. I’ll wait to see how that plays next week and see what exactly is going on.


Eating regimen modified

I dropped one shake out, added calcium supplements, added multivitamin, and significantly increased my intake of leafy vegetables. I am averaging 4 pounds of vegetables and 2 pounds of fruits a day. I am also having fiber1 cereal instead of psyllium fiber supplements. Zero added sugar, zero trans fats, no starch after 5pm. largest two meals around workout. 1.5 grams of protein per lb of total body weight. Almost no carbs outside vegetables and fruits. I am drinking 3/4 gallon of water daily but need more as I was found to be only 50% hydrated.

I weighed myself today and noted with relief that I lost another 1.5 lb last week. Absolutely fabulous. Things are looking fantasic.

I am back to 4×10 routine. The change in exercise we implemented last week did me good as most of my numbers are up as to when compared to two weeks ago:

Chest Press: 150 lbs vs. 120 lbs 2 weeks ago!!!
Incline Press: 140 lbs vs. 120 lbs 2 weeks ago!!
Preacher curl: 70 lbs vs. 80 lbs before (not sure why….)
chinups: 60 lbs of assistance. vs. 70 lbs 2 weeks earlier

With the exception of the biceps strength, all seems to be working great.
