I’m now at 62.8 KG (138 lbs). Yes! Gained some weight since. For the longest time I was stuck at 59 to 60 kilos. I still have a bit more to beat my heaviest weight achieved back in June 2012 which was 63.1 KG – some of which I puked out later no thanks to stomach issues!
Also achieved 2 new PRs today:
- Bench Press – 130 lbs x 3 reps, and
- Bench Press – 140 lbs x 1
I’ve never been strong at bench presses and usually lift about 80% of my body weight at best – that is until today.
The best I did was April last year when I was on a 4 day-a-week intensive training regime. So to get to this level on just once a week training (and gaining weight to top that) is really good!
Most of my time is occupied with my new Musemancer venture and since I abandoned the ‘work from home’ lifestyle, my gym training fell from 3 times a week to once a week average now.
Which is why I signed on to the next Viper Challenge in March 2015, so I remain committed to training and give myself a solid purpose. It would really suck to slouch back into mediocrity and surrender my years of training. LOL
