Today though I pushed 100kgs, 200 lbs on the leg press, up from 60kg /130lbs 2 months ago, so am quite pleased with myself and wanted to share (:

Share away! "Heavy" is all relative to you and your abilities.

Today was interesting... in spite of being in the midst of doing Lyle McDonald's Rapid Fat Loss Handbook program, I was hitting some pretty heavy weights during my workout today. Not PRs per say (that's not what I was aiming for) but definitely not less than usual, and actually more than my normal on some things like leg presses and front squats.

I imagine over time (though this is a short program) that will fade, but it's nice to see that the program is working as it should and strength/muscle loss is not a factor!

Ack. It's been forever since I posted on 3FC. Been kinda crazy at work and I went to New York Comic Con last weekend and had a blast. Being a thin costumed person is certainly so much fun, I have to admit.

I've been keeping up with my lifting and maintaining 110.6-112.4. Not really cutting back or adding more when I hit the high end or low end, but it just seems to be where I naturally fall. I have a weigh in this morning though, so let's see if Comic Con did any damage, haha! (although I didn't eat anything except my own food, so why would it?)

Hopefully I can stick around this time. I miss all you ladies!

Mogzillo: Welcome! The thread is a bit quiet these days... come tell us what awesome things you've been up to.

JossFit: Glad your body's keeping up! Keep being rad.

sontaikle: Good to see you! I noticed your absence and assumed that life must be busy. Glad you're juggling everything and getting some fun time in.

I had a seriously uninspiring strength workout yesterday (numbers down a bit), but I wasn't too surprised. I had taken a week off strength training, run 7 miles the night before I lifted in the morning, and my weight is slipping down again. That's all ok. I made it to the gym, and that's what matters. I think I may try to aim for 2 long sessions per week instead of 3-4 short sessions and see how that goes.

Today I'm going to be doing some hiking, and tomorrow more running. Yay.

I just want to make an announcement/share an NSV...

I packed a suitcase for vacation and realized today that I can easily lift it over my head with no assistance from my legs. Kind of reminded me that THIS is the best benefit of regular strength training.

Yeah, that's awesome, Krampus. I should take this as motivation-- I've been really, really inconsistent with my strength training (though consistent with my running) lately.
