    Tallied my cals for the week and I averaged 2487, with a low of 2310 and high of 2841 today. That's up a hundred from last week's average. I'll try to hang here for a couple weeks and see what happens. I was 125 at the beginning of December when I started increasing, hit 128 at the new yr, and have been at 129 since then. Hard to figure out what is "real wt" vs. noise from increased fluid/etc. but 2500 might be about right for a 2#/month gain. I was hoping to get away with more, sigh...

    Today's trainer workout (7 left after today):

    1. Warm up with band walks, 1 legged squats, step ups, inchworms with pushups, ball slams, and box jumps

    2. Repeated this cycle 3 times
    a. pushups with one hand on a ball instead of the floor, 8/side
    b. split squats with a 30# (I think) kettle bell and 5sec hold at the bottom, 8/side
    c. farmer's walk with the same kb

    3. RDL, 95#, 10
    Assisted pullups, neutral grip, 40#, 12. My grip was limiting me more than anything here, probably from coming right after the RDL's
    Kneeling cable chop, 50#, 12/side
    RDL 95#, 9 and my grip failed- never really recovered from above

    The place I've been training has a strong functional-fitness/ sports conditioning orientation; they follow programming from Michael Boyle for anyone who knows who he is. Not a style that is as consistent with my current goals, but I'm making the most of the sessions I have left and I appreciate what I have learned and built there. I had to beg to do deadlifts with a barbell instead of a kettle bell, for example. I did get some good advice though- he pointed out that I'm not really following through with the hip thrust/lockout part at the top of the motion, so it was worthwhile. There's another trainer at the studio who actually works out at my gym, and I see him doing plenty of deadlifts, power cleans, barbell squats (these are frowned upon at the studio due to low back concerns) etc. I'm thinking about asking to switch to him because I think he'll be more understanding of my goals, even if he does have guidelines to follow- I would have already if I wasn't worried about hurting anyone's feelings....

    Hey Christina! Just wanted to say that you need to do what is right for YOU and not worry about hurting anyone's feelings. Although, I can completely understand where you're coming from, because I'm very much the same way when it comes to putting myself out in order to spare other's feelings... BUT, if you're not digging the workouts you're doing, then say something. After all, you PAID/PAY for this! They should be dedicated to helping you, and if they are professional than they won't/shouldn't get their feelings hurt that you want to try a new trainer! I say do it because 1) it's your $$$ 2) it's your body 3) it's your time and 4) it's what they get paid to do!

    rock on girl.

    Hey thanks guys. I know you're all correct. I'm in a service profession myself (I'm a vet), and some clients naturally gravitate to one or the other of us, while others don't care so much. I don't typically take it personally as it usually just boils down to communication styles and the way personalities mesh. Part of me figures I only have a few sessions left so just use them up and be done. The trainer I want (the one who lifts at my gym too) is out next week, so we'll see. I actually talked to him when I ran into him at the gym over the weekend. He said he'd teach me to power clean (need that if I do Starting Strength), and my trainer won't (somehow thinks it will aggravate my hip or back, which I'm not seeing). I did speak to the owner today and he said he'd talk to my trainer too. Now it feels all weird, yuck

    Nice progress so far! I've never used kettlebells for anything, but I've always found them interesting. They don't even have them at my gym (and like you said, they're not completely compatible with strength training), but I'm sure I'll try them someday...

    Just wondering, when did you start lifting? Also, even if you don't run the Starting Strength program itself, the book is a really good resource, so IMO it wouldn't be a bad idea to check if you haven't already.

    I know what you mean by yuck...I hate when relationships get uncomfortable as well. As soon as you get everything resolved, I'm sure things will resume normalcy. Til then stick it through, and remember that it won't last forever!

    I've lifted off and on for a decade- but never with the right nutrition, so I never really got stronger... I have starting strength and I've read it cover to cover, along with practical programming. And I've watched a bunch of Riptoe's youtube videos. So dude has me pretty well indoctrinated! On my non-trainer days I am doing his starting workouts for the most part- but no power cleans as I haven't learned to do them, and RDL's instead of full deadlifts as I've been watching my back- though it has been great lately, so next weekend is probably when I'll give them a try! And, I add back stuff like you are doing with baby-something guy's modified program Kettlebells are ok for some things- they are easier to hold when doing lunges and split squats. J ust another variation. I'm itching to go heavy/low rep though- I've always been skinny, even at high bf. I think seeing some muscle on myself would be fascinating and trippy

    Sorry things feel weird now... that sucks.
    Try not to let it get to you - you said yourself, you sort of know what it's like being a vet and having certain people gravitate towards you or others...
    Since the trainer you'd like to train with is out next week, maybe just finish up with the one you have now and then move on? That might be the best option to keep things less-awkward

    Yeah, I could see needing several months to recover core strength after an abdominal incision. Did you get any PT or anything after sx so you could develop a plan for safe exercises to regain your core strength? I haven't had to deal with post-op challenges, but I had the weakest midsection ever when I started exercising again last summer. The evil ab roller and a bunch of planks whipped me into shape

    Since the trainer you'd like to train with is out next week, maybe just finish up with the one you have now and then move on? That might be the best option to keep things less-awkward
    Hey Roxy,
    That's probably how I'll end up handling it. It's already somewhat awkward I need to get over that, I know.

    Today was another trainer workout:

    1. Warm up with band walks, walking lunges, ball slams
    2. Side planks
    3. A bunch of agility ladder stuff (he calls it "movement prep", I call it cardio!). Variations on hopscotch
    4. Planks/side planks

    Then, cycled through this 3 times:

    1. Goblet squats 40# KB, 3 second hold at the bottom, sets of 10 (these were easy on my legs, fatiguing for my arms- I prefer the barbell)
    2. A press exercise with 25# KB; while in a lunge position, going from one side to the chest and then to the opposite side; 10 per side
    3. Step ups (pretty tall step) from the side of the box, 40# KB, sets of 10 per side and no touching with the following leg

    Sat I'll be in the gym on my own again so I'll do bench press, pull ups, squats, and dead lifts. 6 more trainer sessions to go. I'll going to ask him again to teach me to power clean- if I get that down I may go the starting strength route when these are used up.

    On the nutrition front: still 129#. Monday ate 2833 cals, Tues 2847, Wed 2484. I'm still aiming for 2500 a day for now, I was just hungry those earlier days! I figure the scale has to move soon- pants are certainly snugger and I'm less smooth around my thighs and midsection...

    Fantastic lifts! Our numbers are fairly similar, although I think you've got a bit on me. It looks like you'll be doing full-on pull ups in no time...you should go for it next time with no assistance, I bet you could pull one off!

    And yes, I love the little microplates too. Lifesavers

    Hey there I read your journal and I had the same thought I hadn't officially decided to do SS, but it seems that that is what I'm falling into (though those trainer sessions will be around too for a few more weeks). You can be my virtual training partner, lol. Ripptoe says newbies can make gains for 3-9 mos doing this, so I'll stick with it as long as that happens- with the extra back work of course. I only ordered 1.25's, but I may go back and get the .25/.5/.75 plates too

    I'm still jealous that you get to eat 2800! I was half hoping the scale wouldn't move until I got to 3000 or something absurd. I'm satisfied on this amount but not overly full at all. Oil, pb, and dried fruit add up really fast. I look back on the days of eating 1600 or so cals a day to lose wt and I have no idea how I did it- I've adapted to more food very easily

    Hello to my bulking inspiration I work out with my trainer tomorrow morning and he's making an effort to go heavy/low rep with me, so as long as he does that I'll probably just stick with him. Only 6 sessions left anyway. And, he agreed to help me learn to powerclean soon as long as my deadlift form stays good and I stay injury free (poor guy, I know a lot of this comes from being afraid to injure me as I was a bit of a train wreck when I started last summer)

    I posted this form check request yesterday but figured I'd keep a link here too. You can see my first attempts at a big girl deadlift (which I apparently need to work on as my legs are too stiff) and barbell squats

    Ok, today was another trainer workout.

    1. Warm up with single legged bridges, band walks, body wt squats, walking lunges, and inchworms with pushups(lots of focus on my hip, which they've been doing since the beginning, and it helps).

    2. Alternated step ups, box jumps, and the ropes 3 times through (the ropes are hard, but awesome- basically you shake these heavy ropes for timed intervals).

    3. Cycled through this 3 times:

    RDL, 95x8, 115x8, then 135 x4. I felt these in my lower back more than my glutes and hamstrings so I'm hoping I was doing it correctly. This was a wt increase and he said my form looked good, but still....

    Inline press 60x8 per side on the cables for all 3 sets. Basically take a lunge position, start above the head one one side and come down to the waist on the other.

    Pullups! Sets of 5 with a parallel grip, and a 5 second hold at the top. I actually got up on my own on the first 2 or 3, but by the last couple he had to give me a little help and I wasn't able to stay up the full 5 seconds. We only went through these twice. The second time around my grip was totally failing and I had to let go and restart between each rep. But it is still progress

    4. Cycled through this twice:

    Bench press 60# x8, then 70# x8.

    Split squat, 70#, 8 per side. My legs could have handled more but my arms were getting tired holding 2 35# kettlebells after the pullups...

    Pushups with 1 hand on a medicine ball, 8, switching hands between each rep. I got the first set but on the second I dropped to my knees for the last couple.

    Isometric band hold- not sure what to call this but basically an ab exercise- take a lunge position and hold a band, and the trainer pulls on it while you resist and try to stay still


    Nutrition: 2565 cals a day average (yesterday I only ate 2100, brought my average down a bit)- but this am I hit 130.8# so seems to be about right.

    Jealous about the pull ups! Nice bench as well, I'm impressed. The bench is one of my weaker lifts, as I'm afraid my lower body is ahead of my arms and chest.

    Story of my life...I've done walking lunges with 35s and 40s, and my forearms die even when my legs could go on. It's the grip strength (or lack of) that kills me). I've done reverse lunges with a barbell which makes it much easier to handle a higher weight, although of course you don't get the benefit of strengthening your arms and shoulders.
    46kg snatch | 62kg c&j
    202lb bsqt | 171lb fsqt

    What is bench.

    Benching is really hard for me too! And I feel like I'm still forever away from being able to do a nice set of full pullups all on my own.

    No mid-week workout for me, thanks to food poisoning. I'm down 4# since this started 36 hrs ago, maybe got 500cals in yesterday (mostly ginger ale), and slept a nice 23/24 hrs. No more lobster tails for me, ever!

    Just a little workout today. I'm feeling recovered from the food poisoning/norovirus fiasco, but I'm still down 2 pounds. Today was not awesome but it happened so here it is.

    1: squats, 3 sets of 5 with 115#. Lost my form a bit on the last rep and I have the feeling I didn't quite get parallel a couple times. But it was close enough that I'll try that wt again next time.

    2: bench press: 3 sets of 4 with 70#. These were supposed to be sets of 5, but I failed at 4 each time. I'm thinking of going back down to 65 and doing more reps for the next couple rounds.

    3. deadlift- 1 set of 10 RDL's with 95#, then 2 single reps of regular deadlifts with 135#. I'm still working on my form on this exercise, and I'd like to practice with less weight first, but the smaller plates don't get the bar to the right height so I feel stuck here.

    4. neutral grip pullups. Worked on negatives instead of using assistance- did 3 sets of 3-5, slow as I could on the negative.

    I think the next workout should be better as I continue to recuperate. Thankfully appetite is back.
