    @Vick, no offense taken. ;-) I suppose I measure improvement by adding weights/reps or reducing my time in HIIT workouts, but it's not really a specific "I went up x amount of weight" etc. I would like to have a clear measurement of improvement, but with the random-ass exercise protocol I follow, I don't think it's very feasible or even hugely necessary. My thought is... I can't be getting any worse, and I always push myself as hard as I can, so wouldn't it only make sense that I get better?

    If I could lift heavy things, I would be under that bar and recording all my stats. But... Not only do I not have a gym membership up here in the north, I also don't think my fragile, chronically angry back would enjoy handling that load. Unfortunate, so instead, I will just have to put other people under the bar when I'm a PT. ;-)!!!

    I went back to the old gym and "paid" a visit. Just wanted to compare some old numbers

    Bench press.

    185 lbs. x 13 reps. The last time I tried that was October and I did 8 reps.

    Leg press.

    650 lbs for 38 seconds. My last time was April 11th and I did 630 lbs for 56 seconds.

    bench press - 255x5, 275x5, 295x5
    Incline db press - 75x5, 80x4, 75x5
    Dips 3 reps 2 negatives, 5 negatives, 5 negatives
    DB flys 40x5, 35x5, 35x5

    Then I walked over to a HS field and did 5 yard shuffle and sprint boxes and shuttle runs... this was my first running with VFF sprints, it was great, although the balls of my feet feel a little raw and nearly blister-y...
