Diet: Paleo Plus Dairy
I lifted weights 13 days during February, up from 9 in January. My travel and meeting schedule has been relaxed versus last month and December.
My program changed from my own design to doing Crossfit Football. Some of the workouts I’ve modified to my own strength limits, and I don’t always do the workout from the specified day.
My maximum squat has increased five pounds to 250 pounds (a little better than 1.7 times body weight). My maximum deadlift has increased by twenty pounds to 225 pounds. I attribute a lot of my increase on deadlift to increasing the limits of my grip strength through Farmer’s Carries.
Maximum bench press increased by five pounds to 160 pounds (1.1 times body weight).
I’m enjoying the Crossfit Football program – it’s a new challenge each day in the gym. What’s interesting is that I’m doing less each day in the gym than I did before – fewer sets and fewer exercises but seeing better results.
I’ve continued to burn the early hours – rising at about 4:40 each day to lift weights before work.
Weight: 142 Pounds
Consistent with February’s beginning weight.
