weight loss often isnt linear. if you have broken that plateau in 2 weeks, try a refeed or add some cardio.

hit a 100kg clean today. I was pretty stoked.

'grats on the 100kg clean -- great work!

As for me, long travel + having someone put in a lifting platform in my workout area + time away with my wife = long break.

Came back to completed lifting platform. Yay!

Unfortunately, bike riding and hiking up hills yesterday and today got me tired out.

sn: singles up to 130#
j: 145#x1x5
fs: 195#x3, 185x4
chins.

Wanted to push sled, but events conspired against me.

Sounds like a great way to come back though. Time with the wife, a new lifting platform, bike riding, hiking, a little lifting.

And it's not like that workout was even close to bad.

Looks like a real nice series of events.

If you get a chance I would love to see a picture of your lifting platform. Nice workout.

Here's the platform. I had a local handyman/jack of all trades put it together. Super solidly built -- the bottom layer of ply is bolted AND Gorilla glued to the concrete.

One of these years, I'll replace the squat rack with a proper full rack. As you can see, the legs of the rack intrude a bit on the platform.

Wow. Your platform look very nice! It also comes with a nice view.

Thanks!

And there's even a bit of breeze when I open the window just to the left of where I was standing when I took this picture. Too bad the doors you see open in, rather than out (and too bad the view I see when I lift is the storage shelves )

Quick pre-travel workout:

sn: up to 130# for a single
c&j: up to 155#, cleaned 165# no problem, but no energy for the jerk
fs: 195#x4, 175x5

Weight is back to 183 or so, need to get it down 4-5#.

I love your platform. I was thinking if I was lifting I would have faced the rack instead of the shelves. Weird how the mind works. Thanks for the picture.

By the way really nice job again on your FS. It just keeps on a moving.

Thanks!

It's funny -- when I back squat, I face the shelves, because that's how I walk it out, but when I FS or press, I face the rack (and the windows). I started snatching and c&j'ing facing the shelves because of how I setup the floor + ply + stall mat craziness I had before the platform -- I really should re-train myself to face the rack and window because it's a much less distracting view.
