    2021 Fitness / Weight-Loss Accountability Thread

    My arms would snap under 315.

    I got to 245 a few years ago and thought I was a beast. Iím a 2 plate guy these days and proud of it.

    Iím also going the wrong way with weight loss. Iíve been working out like a fiend since XMas and Iíve gained 5 pounds.

    All muscle, Iím sure.

    I used to lift three plates regularly.










    In the buffet line.

    Anybody else use preworkout? I never had a meth habit, but I can kinda understand the allure thanks to preworkout.

    I used to but wasnít a fan of the jittery feeling.

    Now I drink BCAAs before my workout.

    Sometimes - the Ascent PWO is my favorite. Flavors are great and the energy boost doesnít make me feel jittery. Try to avoid it as much as I can, but every once in a while I need a boost.

    I use it when I workout in the mornings/weekends. If I lift after work I opt for coffee.

    haven't swam or lifted in the gym since March, although I do have a decent home gym setup which I do use some (no squat rack)

    after slipping up a bit in late 2020, I am re-committed although still not in the gym - so lots of walking/running to supplement the home gym sessions

    my go-to snack is plain nonfat Greek yogurt (buy the quart tub, have 8 oz at a time) with probably a half-cup blueberries and sometimes blackberries and/or strawberries

    If I'm out of yogurt, almonds are next up
    This is the thing I miss the most over the past 10+ months....used to swim at least 1-2 times a week fairly regularly, and have not had access to a pool during most of the past year due to COVID. That was always a good cardio workout that didn't cause the pounding on the joints that running does. Trying to mix in some more bike rides (harder to do in the winter when there is no daylight in the evenings) and walking more on the golf course to make up for those lost swims. I have a feeling I'm going to be sucking wind for the first few weeks when I do get back in the pool regularly this spring/summer.

    I have never been a swimmer until starting it up about 2 years ago, and I always dreaded it, but it's the best cardio workout there is. The main drawback is that I am HUNGRY when I finish up. Hope I can get back to it soon.

    I no longer have access to a whirlpool or a steam room and I definitely miss both of those.

    I was pretty into swimming about 10 years ago and was hungry all of the time. Then I lost my access to a pool and never really picked it back up.

    Yeah so I haven't been doing well.

    Aside from being generally lazy when it comes to fitness, I can't seem to find the time. Only way I could do it is get up when Mako does and work out in the morning. But WOOF...Mako, man, you gotta give me some motivational tips to work out at 5AM

    When I say can't find the time, it's legit. My wife works from home while watching the baby, so when I get off work I pretty much have kid duty until dinnertime to give her a break.

    Is working out AFTER dinner a thing? I couldn't imagine, because that's when I thought booze was supposed to be consumed.

    The thought of 101 burpees makes me sick.

    Before the pandemic I had a string of 3 weeks of getting up at 530 to workout before work.

    Pandemic threw that off. Now I just workout whenever I need a break in the day.

    I got up at 6 a few mornings to do it but our bedroom is above our garage and I woke up my wife.

    No way Iíd be able to do box jumps after those squats and lunges.

    I did three sets of 12 squats at 225 on Saturday and could barely walk yesterday.
