My strength training journey so far has been rewarding. I’ve gained 8lbs in the past 60 days since starting a 4x/week kettlebell strength program. Now given the time of the year, a couple of those pounds are probably due to 🍪🍪. I haven’t been this total body strong since my early 30’s. So now at approaching 47, I am looking forward to how this strength translates to my 2019 🏊♂️🚴🏻♂️🏃♂️racing season. Plus the effects it’s having on my physique aren’t bad either.🤪 #kettlebell

Week 26 Roundup - The First Wall? I’m about two weeks into the new fitness and nutrition routine. In the gym I’m focused on better form and mind muscle connection. I’m trying to put good things into my body pre workout so I can get more out of every session. I’m not getting more though. At least if my 1 rep max is anything to go by it’s actually going down! I’m going to assume this is because I have improved form and am taking things a little slower.
I’m finding it tough mentally too. When I see my previous weights and reps in the JEFIT app I feel like it creates a mental block. Ie. I see that I did 15 reps at 50kg on the bench press last session and subconsciously that becomes my ceiling, I expect to be worn out by then. Perhaps I should try and go into the lift without looking at previous stats? Or should I add +2 to this number and make that my mental goal post?
On the fitness front I’m enjoying the calorie surplus. It’s actually HARD to eat that much and even harder to make that surplus fit into my macros. 235g of protein a day is nearly impossible for me to hit while staying under 103g of fat is just as challenging.
I feel like there is a little more fat on my waist and face now. I see it that way too in the mirror. Todays Friday selfie is especially helpful because when I compare to previous shots I think the change is far less drastic than I have been imagining.
There’s only one way to see if this system works and that’s to stay committed to it for at least 1-2 months. If I don’t see results I can go back to what I was doing before.
One more thing I’d like to change is the amount of time I’m spending in the gym. I feel my sessions are getting increasingly longer. I’m spending more time on warmup and activation. Today’s session was almost 90 minutes. I’d really like to get in and out a little faster. Maybe I’m warming up too much? I know on some exercises I’m doing too many reps and need to increase the weight which will reduce time. The issue is on some like the weighted lunge I don’t have the arm strength to get more than about 50kg over my head and onto my shoulders. What should I do in this case?
(G-Luz Top Team) - Você precisa alongar antes da prova?
É muito importante que você tenha o hábito de se alongar em algum momento, mas antes da prova é importante que você aqueça. É esse aquecimento que prepara o corpo para o esforço da corrida. Ocorre um aumento gradativo da temperatura dos seus músculos e do seu ritmo de respiração, permitindo que você consiga um melhor aproveitamento do oxigênio que respira. Apenas alongar e alinhar para a largada não funciona. Então, aproveite aqueles minutos antes da prova e faça um aquecimento específico para você, deixe o alongamento para de noite, em casa, por exemplo. .

For a long time I’ve wanted a fitness tracker so that I could collect data to gauge the difficulty of my workouts. I’m terrible at measuring RPE, I sweat constantly, and it’s hard to breathe anytime I run faster than 6.5mph on a treadmill- clearly no good options for determining effort.
Thanks to @dustinwantstoplayrugby, I am now the proud owner of a Garmin Fenix 3 HR (sapphire edition, ya heard?) and a chest heart rate monitor. The data this watch provides goes beyond just number of steps or average heart rate. It utilizes all of the data to customize my goals and provide feedback on how efficient my workouts are. Can you tell which graph corresponds to circuit training and which corresponds to a low weight, high rep leg day? #datanerd#bestgiftever#themoreyouknow
