For about a month now I've been back at the gym I used to go to when I was at my strongest, several years ago.

Somehow I am already deadlifting 120kg for 10 reps and benching 90kg for 5 reps :shock:. This is progress I've just not managed to achieve at any other gym since.

Reckon I can increase the deadlift some way for another few weeks, but I can tell the bench is already peaking. Would love to try a 1RM for 100kg, but will have to get a spotter for that!

Much better at running in general than I ever was back in the strong days. Doing a Rough Runner in London next weekend, which should be a laugh.

I'm still doing my cardio with weights *thing*. I've been doing fasted workouts for about 3 weeks now and while I have no idea if it's helping with fat loss, I do know I procrastinate a hell of a lot less than I did when working out after breakfast :lol: So I'm going to stick with it. Makes gooseberry fool a lot less complicated first thing in the morning and that's welcome too!

Hello GRFit, checking in again since my last post in July.

I've not been as good at going the gym lately. As the nights get darker is hard not to just want to stay home and warm rather than drive in traffic for a bit, exercise, and then drive back.

Food wise I'm still doing well. I've dropped to a 750 kcal deficit from 1,000 as I was finding 1,600 too difficult to achieve, even with me eating the same 180 kcal breakfast and 450 kcal lunch every weekday.

The upshot of that is I didn't reach a sub-30 BMI by September as I had predicted back in July, but I feel the progress is still good.

I'm just now reaching the not-obese point for the first time since I was a child, hopefully on my next update I'll be well into it. Interestingly you can probably pick out LFC home games from my weekend spikes when I have unhealthy food and beer at the match.

Here's the graph.
