So, About The Lack Of Updates…

Don’t worry. I haven’t vanished. Life got turned upside down for a little bit – I’ve almost got both feet back on the ground and I plan on doing a YouTube video to update that, but as far as things are going now here’s a quick update on this weeks progress.

CHALLENGE 2017

It’s still ongoing. Since beginning it on cliche New Years Day, I’ve gone down to 259lbs and finally broke the 260lbs barrier! Looking to be on track to get under 255lbs by the end of March which should be the end of the Challenge. I may extend it out further but we’ll see…

STRENGTH TRAINING

Yep this is still going on as well. The one downside to weight loss for me, which has become incredibly predictable, is a loss in strength through certain lifts. In particular? The benchpress for starters with the squat not lagging too far behind…
