Kevin that is awesome!! I was going to say something about it after seeing pics of you lately. Looking good. I gotta get back on the bike soon. This last year I feel like the shift has happened. I'm 41 so things are starting to slow down in the metabolism dept.  //popcorn//

Yes I know...it's defiantly harder to loose the older you get.

Ben,
just start eating salads and chicken or fish and by the time your 50 you'll be slim and trim....keep eating like your 35 and you'll have 35 hanging over your belt by the time your 50.

congrats Kevin!

I'm not in bad shape by any means. But harder to keep trim for sure.

This past Saturday I became a Life Time Member
of Weight Watchers by maintaining my goal weight
for 6 weeks. Total this year is 33 lbs and overall
weight loss of 73 lbs over 4 years.

I could really tell the difference at around 11000 ft
in Colorado while we had to do some trail maintenance
before we could continue.


Congrats Kevin!!

Last 2 weeks I have hit 300 on bench on the 5th set.

Today I got 305 on 5th set.

I had only done 300 once in life before. Never more than 300. I did it before at 165. Now around 185. Still some leaning out to do. Gotta get my legs a little stronger and will go into deadlifting again.

Great job Trip!

I can't remember the last time I had 6 plates on a bar.  I saw a disabled guy on the incline bench pumping out 10+ reps of 275 like it was nothing.

That much on incline is impresive. The best I could do back when was 250....it wasn't multiple reps.

Trying to train through my knee tenderness for a 13.1 mile run in october. I'm smoking my right calf in short order because of my knee. Did 2 miles yesterday.

It was certainly impressive.  I think the guy had muscular dystrophy as he had a walking abnormality and his legs were short.  He definitely is making the  best of the hand he was dealt.  It was inspirational.  Makes you want to ask others, what's your excuse?

I might have to put 305 on the bar tomorrow morning after warming up just to see if I can still do it.  I'll probably hurt myself.

Impressive.  6 plates is a current goal for me, but I've been stuck. One of my forearms has been bothering me and stalled my progress.  Never been part of the 300 club

305 is nothing to sneeze at. I can't rep it once.  But it ain't 6 plates

6 is 315

Well, worked up to 275 and then put 300 on and failed. New goal I guess. Temporarily out of the 300 club. Give me a month.
