Well, been a bit since last posting. So, time for an update. Started back at working out this time last year, with the goal of being between 195-200 lbs. Before I turned 30 (back in August). Was weighing in at 227 lbs 1 year ago.

Glad to say, since a week before my birthday, I have been consistently in that range.

Since September (both kids now in school), I have switched to a Mon to Fri routine, and working on tone and definition.

Feels awesome.

Just hammering some bicep/tricep for today. Feeling great.

I'm still lifting, but the frequency is lower due to just too much life/work and nagging knee injury.  Due to not going full blast as usual, I have stopped logging the lifts and just focus on a circuit or two groups to keep it simple for now until I can go at it once again.

Still hitting the gym 5-6 days a week.

Weighing in @192.5 lbs in the morning.  Versus the 227.5 lbs of 2 years ago

Now I'm going to start to shift my focus to moving more weight, as opposed to losing weight.

I've made some very sustainable changes to my diet/lifestyle.  So things are on the up and up.

Did a fun arm workout today.  Called "the fours" if you look up Damien Patrick on YouTube, it's his workout.

i focus more on barbell style lifts in the last year or so... Haven't done an actual arm workout in a long time... tris are the only thing I hit sometimes on chest/OHP days.... but bis I just incorporate different grips to activate especially on

Always changing my grip on back days.  But have always found my arms/biceps to be lacking.  And so now focus them one day a week.

I am constantly changing routines and incorporating new/different exercises .

Still lifting, but down to maybe 2 days a week with how much work and driving I have had the last few months.

still doing weight training 5 days per week (Monday - Friday)

trying to get in a 20-25 minute HIIT workout at least 3x per week (dependant on work schedule etc.)

Volleyball on Tuesday nights for 1.5 hrs

And try to get on a treadmill or elliptical for a more extended LISS endurance run once per week, if I can manage it.

I haven't lost any weight in about a year now, so I think I'm sitting at my optimal weight (195-200 lbs), but my body composition has definitely changed.  Getting more muscle tone for sure, and the waist is thinner.  Aiming to maybe for the first time in my life have some visible abdominals in the next 6 months hopefully.  But we'll see.
