    There is a lot of anti endurance training sentiment on this site, but from long experience training for endurance is very useful to get ready for a day of Skiing. Ideally I would have worked up to
    45lbs x 60 reps x 2 sets before the trip, but what I did manage was helpful. Had a great time with the grandkids on the mountain!

    It’s been quite a while since my last post. I’ve lost 20 lbs via time restricted eating and a once a month 3 day fast. The result is that my blood pressure is back where it needs to be and other blood markers are improved. Howerever I have lost some strength. This was only partly caused by the weight loss. The other factor was that I had to get into aerobic shape for my annual guy trip: 4 days of ATV riding in the high passes of CO and so spent a month ramping up my cardio at the expense of lifting. I’m back at the lifting again with LP. When I get back to intermediate programming I’ll start posting again.
