Can be lifting related or cardio related.

A certain race win or certain time.



Mine would probably be that 1000lbs powerlifting total. Got 165/107.5/185 for 457.5kg total. Was a great day and i went 8/9 with a deadlift PB after only 2 deadlift sessions post injury.

I cycled at 20 mph up a steep hill once. Nobody cares because it's only 20 mph but they will never understand how hard that is to do uphill on a bike

Came back from to uni after summer and was completely unfit since I hadn't worked out for about 3 months. Went to the gym and jogged at 8.4 mph with for 50 minutes straight.

20mph uphill is fairly good. I used to try averaging 15mph when i used to go for longish cycles on my bike(mountain bike).

Got chubby in the space of a few months, and I sorted my diet and my exercise out.

So that was a good step.

That's some impressive running. And that was after 3 months off?

Still training? Beaten that time/distance since?

That's actually really impressive. Requires a lot of upper body strength.

Thanks It was 3 months after no exercise at all. I now do that 3 times a week and after that I do sit ups and some leg and bums exercises for toning.

The crow pose doesn't actually require all that much in terms of upper body strength. Barring a few trial runs for balance I was able to hold it for 90 seconds on my first ever go- though I won't pretend that was easy!

I guess girls might find it substantially harder though with much less upper body strength/muscle mass.

How much you weighing now Areeb? I'm cutting myself at the moment. Its pretty tedious business tbh (mainly how slow it is). I've just resorted to going all out over the next 3 weeks (till end of uni term) crash dieting with 4x maintenance/slightly above days/week and 3 days where I fast till dinner and do fasted cadio and aim for a 1.5k-2k calorie deficit on these days (eat just over 1000 cals mainly in meat veggies and a bit of healthy fat).

Did it properly for the first time yesterday and no joke I could actually see the loss of fat on my abdominals after just that single day (probably burned about half a pound of fat). Hoping it does the trick quickly!

I got down to just under 80kg, weighing just under 90kg now. Obviously some of that is water weight, gained muscle but fat as well. Cutting in about 9/10 weeks.

That's pretty intense, how is your strength? I think I'm going to keep this cut nice and slow over about 6 months, probably jump on 5/3/1 to keep strength progression nice and slow and hopefully maintain or gain strength.

Christ that was a quick gain of 10kg!!

Slow is safe but damn tedious. My strength so far has held/slightly improved. I have been off weights for several weeks except ocassional deads/squats for lower body and just focusing on strength based calisthenics (as its much easier to recover from and less time consuming- uni work/commitments). Went to the gym today to do some squats and had the bar at 60kg for my second warmup set. Thought I may as well try and strict-press it and see if my strength had suffered (I only just managed to completely strict press it a couple of months back when I was 5kg heavier after a massive grind even having warmed the movement up)- this time despite being completely cold (not having primed the neuromuscular system) I managed to press it with moderate effort so seems I got a bit stronger.

Not entirely sure what will happen with such aggressive cutting as I wasn't cutting as aggresively before but I plan to commit to it for the full three weeks remaining. I'll report on what happens to my strength at the end of it!

Also its amazing just how much fat one has to lose to get properly lean. I'm super light now (77kg) and will probably end up around 74kg with a proper six-pack! Time to bulk definitely after that .

If it's only for 3 weeks I doubt there will be any major strength losses. Also 60kg press is good, that's the one exercise I loathe because I'm so **** at it. 74kg is super light. I don't think I'm that dedicated to get dem six pex

Yeah strength loss shouldnt really be an issue especially since I plan to go in a slight surplus each strength training day to make up for it and prompt my body to hold the lean mass.

Yeah its very light but I figured I already spent so long cutting and I'm really not that far I may aswell get properly lean then thats already half the battle and I can lean bulk in such a way that I'm never more than 2 weeks of dieting from my ideal leanness which I think will make the whole process much more enjoyable as I can really focus on muscle/strength whilst not being worried about being fat .

60kg press isn't very good to be honest. Its probably around the beginner-intermediate crossover on most strength charts (I did look at one once but I can't remember exactly what classified as getting out of beginner strength). I'm focusing on getting down to full range hand stand pushups (doing partials atm) so it will be interesting to see how much of a carry over to overhead pressing that has (I don't plan to overhead press meanwhile).

EDIT: yeah only around 60kg for men between 75kg and 82kg. Interestingly as an 82kg male it only goes up to 75kg to be classed as advanced.
