    So, I weighed myself about a week ago and I'm at 190 pounds, which means I've met my goal for weight loss (lose 15 pounds). Unfortunately, a lot of it is muscle. This occurred because my leg has been in casts, splints, and a boot for 6 weeks, with about 2 more weeks to go. I am not able to do the exercises I want due to the restrictions, so I'm not getting tired. Add in a irritated nerve at the ankle that causes numbness and tingling, and I can't rest properly.

    I want this ordeal to be over, and soon.

    So I need to brag a bit. I moved in the end of January / beginning of Feb. Around the same time I decided I need to drop a serious amount of weight if I want to have any point in joining the alpinist school/get better at climbing. Here are the intermediate results ( i'm about 50%/30% done ):



    Graph shows KG lost vs days. Red line is scale readings while blue line is the 4 day average.

    My caffeine starved brain read the axis backwards for a moment, and i thought you'd somehow lost 45kg in 9 days

    Great work mate.

    Been following a pushups app in the morning, up to 150 now (over 5-8 sets depending on the day)... Cruising towards the magic 100 in 1 set mark

    I mean I finished it, but the last 10(20) weren't exactly what you'd call good form, though the first 150 were alright.

    In any case, you might just have inspired me to take up working out again starting by doing something similar to you

    I was in tiptop shape two years ago, now not such much after the winter especially. BUT, as soon as my cold/allergy clears up I can take up cycling again (which will also hopefully put me off cigs again) and dust off the old dumbbell and iso mat.

    DO EET.

    I'm basically doing morning pushups every other day and 30 minutes yoga in the other mornings... As well as my evening capoeira 3-5 times/week (depending on work and that)... Feels good except for the weird progressions on these pushups

    How does the progression work? I'd have thought something like pushups is fairly linear. Or are there different variations you do?

    How does the progression work? I'd have thought something like pushups is fairly linear. Or are there different variations you do?
    For the first 4-5 weeks it's just 5 sets with increasing amounts every 2 days, then all of a sudden there's an increase to about 8 sets, less per set, more overall, with the last set being large... Every now and then back to 5 sets with no less reps. 2 minutes break between sets

    So for example, this morning was something like 14, 14, 16, 16, 12, 12, 18, 18, 50.

    Seems a bit fucking mad as sets go, so thinking maybe it's not as well though out as it seems in the first 4-5 weeks (I'm assuming most people drop off before they get to this point because of :effort

    Seems fairly well thought out from that description. Linear progression for the first few weeks and then daily undulating progression afterwards. It's easier to build up work volume through extra sets than through extra reps (especially when you can't adjust the load to manipulate volume).

    Nah. Lifting isn't really all that interesting.
