Started SS a year ago, few resets and breaks due to work and injury (if you feel your lumbar spine round during rep 3 of a heavy dead, don't go for that 4th rep. Ask me how I know.). Running leangains style RPT now, hoping to continue strength gains while trying to shed some of this belly and ass fat. Started at 147# BW last spring, peaked at a bloated 169, would like to be 155-160, and hit a 225 bench, BW press, 405 DL and 315 squat by years end.
Been lifting this weight consistently last 3 years while dropping body weight from 175 lbs to currently 158 lbs. I only do this lift 2-3x a year to gauge overall strength. Train 90% kettlebells, clubbells, and bodyweight. 52 years old, 5'-8" 158 lbs.
Yeah, me too. I think if I were a man, I would not be able to leave the gym. Such an awesome progress the guys make, while I am micro loading ankle weights on the bar. I am ~ 122 lbs, female, middle-aged, and can barely do this, after 3 years dedicated, no misses training (1 RM):
