Notes

Everything solid enough.

in the same boat re: having to move, although in our case it's because our landlady is selling our house. sad because we've loved this place but we are starting to get excited, too. good luck! where are y'all looking to live?

Ah that's annoying -- landlords suck!

We're going to stay in London, but beyond that we're not too fussed about area tbh. We're both mostly WFH, so our main restriction is proximity to stuff we like to do, and just like being able to find a place that suits us, moreso than location.

makes sense. same for us regarding priorities, with the addition that (1) we like being kind of in the geographical middle of our friends, (2) being close to the metro is critical because when we do commute, that's how, and (3) we are trying to have a kid, so it'd be nice to be near a good pre-k/elementary school. although, given that we lasted less than two years in this place before getting kicked out, (3) is a relatively low priority.

BW - 71.8

Notes

Zombie mode today. Didn't do any "proper" cardio, but took a long, brisk walk that probs worked out to a similar energy cost.


Sleep has been not great quality, but still around ~8 hours. So, probably a combo of diet + training fatigue. Will take an easy day of lifting tmrw and see how I feel on Fri. If still rekt, may take a diet break for a week.

Ah yeah, being near a tube stop is our one big criterion as well. Hopefully having relatively fledixle restraints means we both have an easy time searching!

BW - 71.6 [woop]

Notes

Going to take a few days off training and also goign to eat at maintenance. Only deload I've done in 2024 was that one at the start of this month, which was barely a deload (combing back and push+legs into one session, only did like 30% fewer sets and RPE was still pretty high), and I've been pushing the diet pretty hard, so psychological and physical fatigue are piled up.

Reminding myself that there's no need to push super so hard -- I'm not on a deadline and I'm doing this for fun ultimately.

Feels good to lift again. Before planning this little deload, i didn't think about the fact I'm away for 4 nights at the end of this week, so guess I'm getting back-to-back rests.

Nice, one more rep with your old PR while weighing 5 kg less and being older.

Thanks, yeah v happy with it. I think lots of PRs are coming on that lift because I haven't included it regularly for a while. Also, I'm only 30, so I hope I'm at least 10 years away from age being a meaningful factor in strength PRs...

A - Good Morning
95 x 9, 8

B - Reverse Nordic
+7.5 x 12, 9 + BW x 8

Incline Bench
75 x 7, 5
70 x 7

Lying Lateral

Notes

Numbers decent, but felt bleh, especially the bench felt totally off.

Trip was awful (first time I'd been together with my whole nuclear family without my wife for a while -- there's a reason for that. My dad is 9 years sober, but mom and brother are recalcitrant alcoholics and things got unpleasant). Anyway, glad to be home.

My glutes are still sore bc on Sunday I did one set to failure of walking lunges with whatever heavy things I could find.

Decent enough. Still feeling a bit tired. Anyway, resumed the calorie deficit yesterday for the last push to ~68-69kg.

Thanks, man. And yeah, I'm really proud of him -- our relationship has been so much better thanks to it, and he has been so much happier.

BW - 71.4 [lol nice]

A - High Bar Squat
120 x 4
110 x 5, 5 + Rev Nord x 8

B - Incline DB Bench [one tick higher than I used for BB incline, felt rly good]
32.5 x 6
30 x 8, 7

A - Good Morning
95 x 7
90 x 8

A - Lying Lateral Raise
7.5 x 11, 9, 8, 7

B - Pushdown

Notes

Turns out super-setting squat with db bench is pretty demanding. Got through this workout in 45 mins tho, so that's nice. Feel like my baseline "fitness" is pretty good if it can accommodate that density of training.

Also lol, v surprised by this being my lowest weight yet. Would have bet on being back in the 72s for at least a week after what felt like a binge-eating episode while with my fam. I'm not complaining tho.
