  • I have to be up early so I'm usually in bed by 9:30/10:00 so I am pretty much coming home and getting ready for bed. And I should have specified that I am not talking about a gentle flow yoga. Our classes are 90 minutes to 2 hours long with lots of ab work and inversions so a heavy meal beforehand will mean me puking on…
  • I did my first workout for strong curves yesterday. I may have started too heavy because I thought it would be easy with sll the bodyweight exercises after doing ICF. Boy was I wrong and my behind is quite sore today! I found the warm up to be awkward and I still warmed up with the elliptical. I was there for a little over…
  • I am thinking about starting it in the fall. I have been doing strong lifts/ ICF since March and am starting to want a change. I have added hip thrusts and some of the other tips to my workouts now and have seen a huge difference. I would like to lose a few more pounds but I am more focused on inches and my shape with…
  • I gained weight initially after being diagnosed, but it leveled off within a few months. If after this long you are still gaining or maintaining then it is more likely something is off with your logging. If you don't have a food scale, getting one and weighing everything would help tremendously. Plus a food scale really…
  • Great and welcome back! Having a home gym would be awesome. Best of luck.
    in Hi :) Comment by Anniel88 July 2015
  • @canadianlbs That sounds awesome! I wish I had something like that around!
  • I just wasn't feeling it today, but I did ok. Squats: still at 105 working on form Bench Press: 70 lbs felt hard but good. I counted one as a miss Rows: 85 lbs and felt ugly. I was all bent out of shape by the catty crossfit group making fun of videos of people they train with. It made me self conscious. Tricep extensions…
  • Feel free to add me! I have been gluten free for a little over 2 years since my diagnosis. I am trying to lose a little bit of weight and get more active.
  • Feel free to add me! I'm back at it tracking and looking for more positive, motivational friends. My diary is also open to friends. :)
  • I decided to try ICF at 3x5 today, which he recommends for cutting. I've been feeling taxed and I really want to start incorporating some more cardio for overall health. I enjoyed it and even though it was more stuff it seemed shorter. Squats 3x5 at 105 Bench Press 3x5 at 70 lbs Rows were awful. I tried for 85 lbs against…
  • Squats: 100 lbs again. Form felt good. Going to stay here again Ohp: soo close to 5x5 with 55 lbs Deadlift: 115 lbs did 2x5 just because Accessories: lunges and assisted chin ups Have any of you tried strong curves before? I was thinking about getting the book and was wondering if it is worth it.
  • Joined another gym in my insurance network that has classes and took a cardio strength class today. It was hard but felt good to do something different. I really need to work on my cardio because I almost couldn't even keep up! I could probably lift here too but they mostly do classes and have limited hours so I'd probably…
  • Squats: 100 lbs - Going to stay here. Form was ok. Bench Press: 65 lbs - Feels good, but not sure I could do 70 lbs. Rows: 80 lbs. Going to stay here one more time then move up. Step ups, dips, and hip thrusts.
  • Welcome to all the new women interested in throwing around some weights! @canadianlbs That's not a bad idea. I'll have to try that to see where I am failing. Today's Workout: 95 lbs: Deloaded on Squats today and it felt great. Don't be afraid to deload! OHP: 55lbs 5/5/4/4/5! I somehow managed 55 lbs today and only missed…
  • @canadianlbs I've been trying to follow the advice here for squat mobility: http://breakingmuscle.com/mobility-recovery/squats-and-hip-dysfunction-2-common-problems-and-how-to-fix-them I can barely do the paleolithic chair for 30 seconds let alone 10 mins!
  • I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th! I drank and ate way over my calories for the day and severely paid for it at the gym today with an awful workout. Squats: 110 lbs dis not get a full 5x5 and app is making me deload. Probably a good thing as I am working on form. I felt so deflated because I nailed the first set.…
  • Squats 110 pounds. Felt better today but still staying here to work on form and mobility. Ohp 50 lbs Deadlift 115 lbs. Feeling heavy but awesome! Lunges, assisted chin ups My foam roller came today. So excited to try it!I
  • Squats: 110 lbs. I am going to stay here and work on my mobility. I feel like I am not going deep enough smoothly. Bench:65 lbs. Felt hard but good. Will stay here again because I still don't have fractional plates. Rows:75 lbs Assisted dips and step ups. I am starting to add in some lunges and step ups. I'd really like to…
  • I'm around 23 now would like to be closer to 21 or 22, but I'm mostly working on recomp and weight loss would be a secondary goal. I have a larger frame and would prefer to be strong and have a low body fat percentage than just skinny.
  • Squats: 105 lbs - Felt good. Going to move up next time. Need to work on my ankle mobility a bit as I keep trying to lean forward too much into more of a good morning. I started warming up with some bodyweight squats to get into more of the rhythm and that's been helping. OHP: 50 lbs. I tried 55 lbs and that just wasn't…
  • Skipped a work out this week since I was a complete ditz. Tuesday would have been my normal lifting day, but I got to the gym and realized I didn't have a shirt so I just went home and did yoga. Tried to shift my workout to Wednesday and got to the gym and didn't have pants! Fully clothed workout on Thursday - woot! Squats…
  • My grandmother passed away suddenly last week and I got the call while at the gym so I haven't been chatty. Yesterday's workout: Squats 95lbs. Going to try 100 next workout and may stay there for a bit to work on form. Videotaped myself and thought it was ok but this weight is getting real now! Bench: 55 lbs. Felt good.…
  • I had a first today. I was standing off to the side of the squat rack between my sets so the people in the stretching area could see the mirror and some guy comes over and starts taking the weights off my bar. I had to awkwardly tell him I was still using them. He replied that he thought they were on the pins, which are…
  • Squats: 90 lbs - These felt tough and form was slipping a bit. Going to stay here again next time. My one side is so tight that my mobility is off. I think I need to get a foam roller and work it out. BP: 50lbs Felt easy. Row: 65 lbs - Felt good. Going to move up next Did some stretching, assisted dips and planks.
  • Sigh – Went away for Memorial Day weekend and then somehow that turned into over a week away from the gym. Yesterday’s workout session was awful and I really felt the week off. Squats: 85 lbs My goal is to get to at least 100 lbs by the end of the month. OHP: 40 lbs – Had to deload from 45 even without the week off. 40 lbs…
  • Today's workout: Squats: 90 lbs. Starting to feel pretty heavy, but still managed 5 x 5 Bench Press: Did 60 lbs. Whaat? Going to stay here again next time. Rows: 70 lbs. Form is clicking now. Staying here again and I'll move up next time. Switched the order of BP and Rows so I could grab the bumper plates before there was…
  • B Workout to tonight. Treadmill warm-up - stayed on longer waiting for the squat rack to free up. Squat: 85 lbs OHP: 45 lbs still not able to do a full 5 x 5 Deadlift: 85 lbs felt easy. Was tempted to do more but I held off. Assisted Chin ups: -64 lbs It was bro-buddy day at the gym today so I didn't get to do the other…
  • Squats: 80 lbs Bench Press: 55 lbs - My first time doing 55 and for some reason these felt easy?? Rows: 70 lbs - I need to stay here and work on my form. Still not sure I'm doing these right. Some Assistance: Dips ( -58 lbs) and Planks then played around on the rowing machine for a bit before calling it quits
  • @MissHolidayGolightly At least you had a great time playing golf! Good luck on your bench press.
  • Had a really long day at work yesterday so I had to work out in the morning. I felt like everything was hard today. Probably because I worked out fasted. Squat: Sloppy 80 lbs. Didn't get a full 5x5. I should be able to nail them next time. These weights are starting to feel hard! OHP: A VERY sloppy 45 lbs. These felt off…
