Yes, in the catch position.

I'm 41, have been weightlifting for 4 years. I ran my weight up to 94kg twice, trying to gain mass, but my lifts never did much, so I've been engaged since November in getting fat down. My goal is to be 85kg at 10% BF or so, I'm 83kg at 12+% now. So very doable.

Afternoon session:
sn: up to 135#
j: up to 160#

Revised averages: sn: 131#, j: 157#

What was the difference morning and afternoon? Food and time, I guess (morning session was fasted).

I find I work better in the afternoons. I'm more productive at work in the mornings...not sure what's going on there.

That's some very realistic goals. I'm aiming for about 10% bf myself...which'll scrape me into the 62kg class.

OK, this one was supposed to be a punch-the-clock workout as well, but I got stupid.

sn: up to 130#, felt light, so tried for 140#, had it overhead a bunch but no go. Didn't help that my first rep I had my son yelling at me in the background.
j: up to 155# (at this point, I got sensible)
fs: up to 205#

bw: 185#, same caliper measurements
averages: bw: 186#, lm: 163.7#, sn: 132#, j: 156#

Then went climbing with my daughter. Climbed a bunch of 5.10a routes -- forearm endurance is the limiting factor for 5.10b. Feels good to be able to do this; not something I could be doing with her when I was 20# heavier.

Looking good on the workouts.

Where do you go climbing?

Ironworks in Berkeley. She's on the teen team there - she and her friends climb pretty much every day.

Random observation: I've been eating high carb + protein meals after working out. Often, the net effect is extremely depressed appetite. Yesterday, I had yogurt, protein powder, rice krispies, low fat milk, bread and a bit of butter. Call it 1800 calories max. Had absolutely no appetite.

Saturday morning:
sn: up to 135#
c&j: failed jerk at 150# -- shoulders and back sore and weak from climbing

Will withhold comment until afternoon post-food session.
