You bet...that has definitely become one of "our" things we love to do together. He just turned 6 yrs. Last year he was able to dead lift his body weight (~40 lbs). I just wanted to test his strength, but I don't normally make him do a lot of weights. The only time he uses weights are for DL' s, a 5 lbs plate for "KBell" swings, and farmers walks. Otherwise our circuits are runs, jumps, stair climbs/jumps, burpees, inverted rows, rope jumping, leg raises (which he calls rings), and push ups/dips.

I wouldn't trade that time with him for ANYTHING!!

Default My Baby Bodybuilder

Yeah....he is pretty strong....and totally hilarious. Sometimes before bath time I'll get him to strike bodybuilding poses, and he totally gets into it!! I mean front/back double biceps, most muscular, etc. I love it...he actually gets upset on days I take off. How does an old fart keep up to a six year old??

Ha ha...isn't that the truth. He loves the Ronnie Yeah Buddy video on youtube. Does the yeeaahh buddddy, ain't nothing but a peanut, light weight thing.

Anyway, rest day today.

1 month weigh in tomorrow. I haven't really lost any weight yet. Went over my diet logs this evening and think I've figured out why. The system that I was using to track my macros and calories was a little off and underestimated the calories I've been consuming. I'll either stick with the same system and drop my calories by 300-500 calories, or I'll have to get more diligent and start tracking by the actual grams.

Default My First Month/Stumble...

So weighed in for my 1 month - no weight lost.

As I said previously, I will have to readjust my diet and push on...Normally I would've quit and given up. But, I won't let my first log ever be a failure!!!
The only thing about this month that wasn't fail, were pretty much weekly PR's and the fact that I feel leaner.

The long term goal is to drop down to ~12 % BF. For the next month, my goal will be to regroup and drop down to at least 210 lbs (weighed in at 216 today).

I'm fighting to keep/maintain my muscle and strength, so I don't mind making the process slow.

Has anyone dropped weight/BF% relatively quickly and been able to maintain strength/muscle? What was the time frame?

What kind of caloric deficit did you have?

If you did lose muscle/strength, how much?

Today's w/o was some Oly lifting and a little conditioning.

Empty bar (25lbs) work to warm up - HS (hang snatch), OS (overhead squat), and BTNSP (BTN shoulder presses) + mobility work.

50 (lbs) x 3 HS + 3 OS + 10 BTNSP
75 x 3 HS + 3 OS + 10 BTNSP
100 x 3 HS + 3 OS + 8 BTNSP
125 x 3 HS + 3 OS +8 BTNSP
150 x 1,1,1 HS
160 x 1 HS
170 x Fail, Fail (ended up basically doing a snatch grip high pull)
175 X 1 Power clean and push press
195 x 1 Power clean and push press
205 x Fail, 1 Power clean and jerk

Wife and son joined me today (nice surprise to have the missus join the boy and I )

Set up a circuit of 6 exercises - 3 rounds of 30 sec on & 10 sec rest
(dips-inv. rows-shuttle runs-plyo jumps on stairs-leg raises-step ups on bench)

Nice numbers on the O-lifts!

My son is 7 and he does a little with me sometimes when I work out. My daughter loves it more though! haha.

I lost 40 pounds in a year once and steadily got stronger, so you can do it. I was a beginner, so that helped, but you can do it too. It's easier to stay strong losing weight when you go slow. A pound a week or so.

Be sure to get your bodyweight (the bodyweight you want to be at least) in protein each day. Cut down on straight carbs like 150 calories a day (a slice of bread basically) for a coupe weeks and weigh again. Stay 150 less as long as you keep losing fat. If that stalls for a couple weeks, cut another 150 or so carb calories.

That and keep doing O-lifts and you'll be in great shape in no time!
