Diet: Paleo Plus Dairy
I lifted weights 9 days during January, steady with December. A busy work schedule and travel schedule precluded more days in the gym.
My maximum squat increased 202 pounds to 245 pounds (1.7 times body weight). Deadlift increased 10 pounds to 205 pounds (1.4 times body weight). Bench press was steady at 155 pounds (1.08 times body weight).
I’m switching formats for workouts this month – and adopting a program closer to a Crossfit Football. Looking at the results this month, it’s as much out of wanting some variety as meeting results.
I ran one session of sprints this month. Eventually that will happen as part of my training for the Georgia Games.
Sleep was mixed this month. Some nights were better than others, but work and the desire to get workouts in has lead to getting up between 4:30 and 4:45 on some weekdays.
Weight: 142 Pounds
I lost two pounds in January against my January 1 beginning weight of 144 pounds.
February will prove to be busy – youth Soccer season opens matches on March 4, so our first practice will be on February 24th.
The blog also had its best (most-read) month by almost 25% over the previous best – no doubt a function of actually writing posts regularly.
