I’ll admit that I haven’t been getting in 3 workouts a week, but I have been putting in 2 good ones, and I’m back on track with the metabolic circuits, so I’m not going to be mad at myself.
Tracking my food again on Livestrong is going well. I’m using their calorie recommendation for losing 1 lbs per week, and not being upset if I go over, but aiming to keep myself at a reasonable level. Mostly I’m just trying to get my macros back in line. My carb ratio has been creeping up lately, so I’m working on bringing that back down.
I took today off work in order to get a bunch of things done to get ready for the holidays, so I was able to get in a nice long workout without having to worry about not getting home until 7:30 or later at night.
Today was the first time doing DLs again since I finally broke 100, and also my first time doing a full 3 sets of the super-duper set of 4 exercises in this phase.
I decided today to take a video of my last set of DLs in order to get a check on my form. Since I workout on my own, and there are only mirrors in front of me, I’m never quite sure if I’m really doin’ it right, so I thought a video would be a good idea.
So, here’s me deadlifting 105lbs and feeling good. Before this I’d done warm-up sets at 45 and 65lbs, and then working sets at 95 and 100 lbs. Each set was 6 reps.
Anyone have any form tips? I’m always open to critique!
