    45 need to lose 40-60 pounds. I am hypoglycemic and the instant I consider losing weight, the cravings kick up. Superbowl party not the best day to get restarted.

    Gotta say, though, I really don't like doing multiple reps of deads. Personally I almost feel there's more injury risk of doing multiple moderate-weight reps in a row, where form can break down, rather than a single heavy-weight rep where focus is tight.

    That's a good point that I had not considered. I have tweaked my back a couple of times doing multiple reps of deads. One thing that I have learned to do - take my time and do not rush through the set. I check and adjust form each time before pulling another rep.

    Started 30 day ab challenge on my phone today, walked yesterday and ate less than normal for a superbowl party. Have a good Monday!

    Ten minutes on the bike today! For someone with exercise intolerance, this is a victory that I intend to build on.

    My non-dominant arm will be in a cast for two weeks and then immobilized for quite some time after that.

    Any tips, hacks, efficiencies, that you can recommend which I can implement throughout this time?

    Happy Monday kids, took full advantage of a 60 degree day in February by running a half mile and then varied bench presses. Have a great day ahead.

    Day 4 of ab challenge and I'm glad I got it done but I'm upset at how out of shape I am. I gained 20 pounds since kid1 15 years ago but that doesn't tell the story. I was already 40 above my competition weight at that point and body weight leg lifts should not be this hard.
    Anyone else struggling with basic exercise?
  • tcunbelievertcunbeliever Member Posts: 7,991 Member Member Posts: 7,991 Member
    Struggling with basics??? I switched from regular squats to hack squats this month and almost died...or felt like I was going to die.

    Struggle is good. That's where you find progress. Nothing grows in a comfort zone.

    Keep at it - someday this will be your warm-up and you will be adding weights to reach the struggle!

    You asking about workout tips, or general day-in-life tips?
