In my pics (on my profile) i can barely see a difference, but I can feel the difference.
My main problem was I was much more of a beginner than I thought and could barely do squats or deadlifts without back pain or knee pain, I had a real hard time balancing during single leg work like lunges. So I had to change the excercises and focus on getting my core and glutes stronger, otherwise I might have been more successful had I been able to do everything as proscribed. That’s kinda why I didn’t update so much.
But I’ve been working with a trainer focusing on my core and glutes (yeah lots of bosu ball heh) in the end it helped a lot with feeling the right muscles contract and learning good form. I can finally front squat below parallel, back squat and dumbell squat is not at parallel yet, my bench is still my biggest lift but my squat is finally catching up and will pass it up soon.
10RMs: 6 weeks ago -> today
Bench: 75 -> 115
front squat : 35 -> 65 (this is mainly limited by my wrists due to the clean grip, still learning)
deadlift: 40-> 95
Overhead/military press: 20 -> 45
Push press: 40 -> 95
For now my goals are to get my core and glutes strong enough until my squat and deadlift are more normal, it’s not my quads or hams holding me back but everything else. After that not sure, I want to get bigger and stronger but I still have a lot of fat. GPP is a big goal too.
A great side effect was my dog lost 5 lbs too due to all the NEPA walks. I feel bad I let him gain weight along with me the last few years. We’re gonna keep working on it together. He’s down to 78 he should be 60.
