I notice the same thing when I put on weight, but my legs/running come back pretty quick (and I put like at least 1/2 inch on my calves from running with the increased body weight).

On the other hand how's your body comp? Call me too much of a bodybuilder, but if that 15-20# is fat then maybe losing it won't hurt you too too much.

No its cool...I think having a bodybuiling approach is good from time to time. I feel the 20lbs is bit of both. Was my confidence higher at 185 for sheding the shirt compared to now...yea..lol..but I'll still do anyways..haha

Your right though...I've haven't been this heavy for long.

I think my body comp could be better though.

Going to start 531 on Monday. I'm going to start doing KB ballistics and running for my conditioning.

Today

Did 5 rounds of crossfit football wod "Tillman" w/ marines.

7 deads 315lb
200yd run
15 pull-ups (kipping)

I could've...w/ no respect for my body....went and did 7 rounds, but my mind was not there....plus I was in boots/utes/flak jacket too...my other guys were in PT gear.

I was looking at some times for people that did this as rx'd...(45 sec rest after each round)...how anyone can keep those times that low for 7 rds w/ 45 sec rest...is crazy.

Being in boots/utes wasn't fun either...haha
I can imagine that sucking big time

Nice stuff with the KBs. The real test is how you do in a strength session after a 12+ hour fast.

Some do really well, others need something in their system. More endurance/strength-endurance stuff tends to be more comfortable fasted.

Looks good.

Thanks the feedback Derek.

I just printed out "The LIFe Revolution" from Mike O'Donnell's site...so I'm going to be reading up on that.

I'm starting to fall in love again w/ kb's...I feel more and more dialed in and overall complete w/ them compared to barbell clean/jerks/snatches/press's...

Sounds like I'm talking about women...haha

I like KBs for a lot of stuff. One being that I deal with fairly persistent lower crossed syndrome considering I sit at a desk way too much, and the swing and snatch are good to help offset that, along with work on the hip flexors/quads and ITB.

The other is that I am able to press in a more natural line given flexibility level, past injuries etc than with a barbell.

Loading is an issue though.

You may want to check out some info on Eat Stop Eat as well. I like it in that I just don't eat for a day (I choose a day where I'm busy) and can go about the rest of the 5 or 6 days I am eating without any trouble.
