    Carson: You may be right, maybe I should pump the brakes at 225. I'm not nearly as strong as you.

    Fred J: Very true, When I was a tender young 45 year old, I lost 50 pounds in 50 days. I could not believe the strength I lost.
    I started "training" (based on what I knew then), and it started my triathlon career. LOL. But I was not eating chicken and rice fritattas for 80% of my meals then (3-4 eggs).
    The change will be largely volume. Ramping up the treking to 60 minutes a day. This will cause recovery issues, but I'm low enough on the novice curve to get away with it for a while.

    Who knows maybe when I need a Large lifting belt, not an Extra Large. Significant unknowns in this endeavor.

    bw:272.4

    Press (w/arc) 76x5,5,5

    NordicTrack 20 min

    Calorie math suggests a steeper than 0.5 lb/day decline.
    Calorie math is embarrassing, I had more to clean up than I thought.
    Sustainability is key.
    Yesterday I got a total of 60 minutes of cardio (including logged session above), which I hope to continue.
    Experience suggests that a 1 day interval is foolish to base a trend off of.

    After some thought, getting to the "middle" punch of a "Large" lifting belt is probably what my goal should be, a opposed to a number off a chart from 1976.
    My guess is this will occur somewhere south of 240.

    Tweaked my back (again) on halted deads. May have to revisit my form and loading.
    It was also a delayed onset like last cycle.

    Fool me twice, shame on me.

    4/24/2024 Wednesday

    Squat 45x5 50x5,5,5

    Airdyne 25 minutes (timed between and during squats)


    Left hip had a problem that felt like a nerve issue. Had trouble walking even with a cane.
    Eventually fixed with a combination of chiro visits, shoe upgrades, posture upgrade and attempting squats again (which I was failing on with just the bar)
    It was just too ugly to log. LOL

    Will attempt my normal rotation now. We'll see what makes sense.

    I guess this is what happens to us when we get up in age. I follow a few of us geezers here and it seems common. The good thing I get from this is we aren't "quitters".

    glad you're back, brother! I have noticed that when my shoes get worn it causes me all sorts of leg and hip pain, and some crazy calf cramps at night.
