Long time, no post.
So I moved from NY to CA, left Blink and joined 24 Hour Fitness. I love love love the Golds in my town but my two best friends both are 24 Hour members and promised I could drag them to workout and induct them into my weightlifting cult. So 24 it is. (There’s also one 15 minutes from my work, so if co-workers want to hang out when they get out of work at 6:30, I can leave at my normal time of 3:30, get some gym in, then drink.)
I’ve also been pretty decent (…except weekends) at following the diet Fitocracy Macros gives me. I like the macro cycling so I’m not giving up carbs, and it’s instructive to see how little protein makes up most of the things we think of as “junk food”. Haven’t seen a change yet, but when I finish NROLFW I’ll be taking progress pictures that will hopefully be pleasing.
Finishing up Stage 5 tomorrow. Had to decide whether to do the Optional Stage 6, which I think I will. I can actually do a chin-up - which the stage is working towards - but pull-ups elude me and I’d like to be able to say I’ve done the whole thing. Stage 5 has led to a 35lb one-arm dumbbell snatch, which I’m proud of, but not much else in terms of strength.
When the program is over I’m excited to get back to plain old deadlifts / squats. I plan on getting the New Rules of Lifting Supercharged and planning some pretty kickass workouts.

sweetgreen:

March is just around the corner, which means it’s time to meet your new seasonal salad:

mesclun + shredded kale with local blue cheese, caramelized onions, roasted sweet potatoes, bacon, and candied pecans; topped with a balsamic vinaigrette

In DC and Philly, we get our blue cheese from our friends at Firefly Farms (learn more about them in our ‘Meet the Farmer' video); in NY we use Old Chatham Sheepherding; and in Boston we partner with local producer Great Hill Blue.

I feel good about the march salad before I LEAVE YOU FOREVER SWEETGREEN ;_; ;_; come to CA pls and thank you

Stage 3 is complete. Not super impressed with progressions here, but with only 4 of each workout, there’s only so much to do.

One Arm Dumbbell Snatch: 20lbs -> 30lbs
Dumbbell Single Leg Romanian Deadlift: 10lbs -> 15lbs
Barbell Bent Over Row: 60lbs -> 75lbs
Dumbbell Single Arm Overhead Squat: 10/20lbs -> 15/30lbs
Dumbbell Incline Bench Press: 20lbs -> 30lbs
Barbell Romanian Deadlift / Bent Over Row: 75lbs -> 80lbs
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown: 100lbs (no visible “improvement” since the first workout I did was actually underhand grip, but an actual improvement)
Back Extension: 100lbs -> 130lbs
YTWL: 8lbs -> 10lbs (I didn’t go any further on this since my range of motion on the T was really lacking)
And my last interval training was 4mph / 9mph

The reverse woodchoppers were a mess because I’m 97% sure the weights on the cable machine are mislabeled on at least one of the 3 gyms I was at over this past stage.

Body Weight Matrix: hell on earth. People have compared times on the 4th workout to times on the first - I think I shaved off a minute (from like 5:30 - 4:30, nothing impressove) but even finishing the damn thing each time (which I did not the second) was a goddamn accomplishment.

First workout of stage 4 today was during lunchtime - the front desk guy asked why I was later than usual, which means I’m recognized now at both of the gym locations I frequent (even though the split means I’m only at each one twice a week at most). Dumbbell step-ups felt easy, when they used to be the worst. The last time I did Push Presses at 55lbs I had to split my 2 x 10 into 1 x 10, 1 x 7, 1 x 3, where today’s 3 x 8 didn’t feel bad at all.

It’s the planks that got me. 90 seconds is a reasonable time for a plank. 2 minutes breaks my brain, and I couldn’t get even past 1 minute for my second two sets. Not sure how to overcome this. I’ve done them before. It’s the prospect of 6 full minutes in a 15 minute span. Too hard. Don’t like!!!

Next workout: deadlifts again. My loves, how I have missed you!
