    10125

    Yes, I'm flexing. But at least I'm trying to be subtle about it.

    My weight has not changed much over the last month or so. But I continue to get stronger and leaner. I started to do...

    Re-feed progress report:

    Lost 4 of the pounds I "gained" from the Thanksgiving Re-Feed as of this morning. Either I had a 14,000 calorie deficit on Black Friday or there was something to the...
  3. Carb Re-Feed and Thanksgiving Weight Gain

    My weight loss has slowed / stalled and my big lifts at the gym have declined over the last few weeks. I have been toying with the idea of using clean, primal Carb Re-Feeds on my heavy training days...

    Over the last few weeks I have been experimenting with my pre-workout food choices. When I lift before noon the protein bar and banana I had been eating pre-workout was making me feel slow and...
  5. XXXL to XL -- a transition in photos

    When I started my Primal Journey I wore triple-x clothing. Over the last few weeks, I have been able to purchase and wear XL shirts for the first time in more than a decade. Getting to the point...

    On page 259 of Rippoetoe's Mean Ol' Mr. Gravity (a collection of forum posts) Rip responds to a question about Starting Strength for the Morbidly Obese. A friend of a 340 pounder wants to know about...
  7. More Primal Progress

    When I tell people about the primal lifestyle I get some looks of disbelief. People seem to think it is like living an episode of Survivor without the tribal council. And the idea of living without...
  8. Punching Bag Rehab. . .

    Throughout my primal journal I have been struggling with a shoulder injury. As I was transitioning to primal I dug too deep on a bench press set and felt something let go in my shoulder -- thank god...

    I have been doing HIIRT though this post is the first time I've seen the term spelled out more specifically than the HIT or Metcon I have been calling. I structure my routine around 5 minutes of...
  12. Basketball and a Barrier

    Weighed in the 270s this morning for the first time in more than 10 years. Even though I do not let myself get overly fixated on the numbers on the scale, it is nice breaking through a barrier to...
  13. Half a foot of denim

    Rainy, dreary Thursday in the Pine Tree State today (Maine for those not up on state mottos). Decided to wear jeans for the first time in a couple months. I'm usually in shorts on days when I don't...
  14. The Reach Shirt and the Scale

    I know I should avoid daily check-ins on the scale. Actual weight is, after all, just one very minor indication of the progress I am making in terms of my body composition and health. But seeing...
  15. DeadLiftDan's Journal on food, fatherhood & picking stuff up

    A forever addiction to carbs and sugar ended for me in April of 2012. It had taken its toll. 330 pounds on a 5'10" frame, huge energy swings, constant guilt about my food choices and the very real...

    Dumbbells are not ideal because they cannot be loaded and lifted in balance like a barbell -- especially for the squat and deadlift -- and that makes it harder to maximize your effort. It is also...

    Rippetoe On not calling "The Press", "The Shoulder Press:"

    "We just call it the press, because how could you press without the shoulders? You can leg press... but that's gay."
