    Flailing my way to fitness *insert bicep emoji*

    Origin story:
    Obese child, skinny-fat teen, obese young adult. Went from about 220 to 140 in 2016 through calorie-counting, hiking, and rudimentary lifting (just the big three). Maintained that until I had some some life stuff early 2018, stopped lifting and started smoking, dropped to all time low of 130 but with serious loss of strength and condition, and then crept up to 145 by the end of the year. Earlier this year restarted hiking and fell in love with bouldering, then almost immediately got a pinched nerve in my knee and since then have gone up to 155, though I did take up daily yoga, which is fun and chill. Knee has resolved (yay!), and I want to start taking fitness seriously again. Putting this here to have somewhere to keep track that isn't a coffee-stained notebook - long-time accountless lurker, first-time poster haha.

    Current stats/1RMs:
    - 29 years old
    - 155 5'6"
    - 99 squat
    - 154 DL
    - 66 bench

    Outcome goals:
    - 130
    - one pull-up oh god
    - lifting TBC (just gonna see how I go, focus on getting form better, and incorporating more movements)

    Exercise regimen:
    - daily 30 min yoga and 1 hr commute cycling
    - Mon squat, bench + OHP, calf-raises
    - Wed bouldering
    - Fri DL, bench + OHP, calf-raises
    - fortnightly 7 mile+ hikes

    Nutes:
    1300 cal
    120g pr
    45g fat
    100g carbs

    Today I:
    Cycled and yogaed.
    1360cal
    122g pr
    50g fat
    111g carbs

    Today I:
    Yogaed (twice!) and cycled. Felt stupidly cautious lifting; possibly could have gone harder but couldn't bring myself to do proper to-failure reps on all sets. Kinda queasy from 3 x 30g pea and rice protein shakes; need to get better about hitting protein with whole foods.

    Hi and welcome! Why aren't you incorporating back work if your goal is to do pull-ups? I would trade one flat bench for an incline bench and one OHP for a lat pull/row variation. A stronger back and core will also help with bouldering.

    Hey! Thanks, that's an excellent suggestion. I don't have facilities for inclined benches atm (using a very basic community gym space for lifting, will be switching to my uni's swanky all-in-one gym in Nov), but have been contemplating some kind of row - on your prompting I'll give it a try Friday and report results.

    Yogaed twice, cycled, weighed in at 154.8 again (missed yday). Attempted bent-over row - it was good! Started with a low weight, can probably go higher next time. Definitely going into rotation.

    Hey OP, nice work in here! I love that you turned yoga into a verb. Also good addition with the bent over rows. A strong back not only helps your back exercises but everything else like bench. IMO overhead press, bicep curls, and squats are like the crescent rolls of Thanksgiving dinner, while row is the Honeybaked Ham that pulls the whole event together. If you have dumbbells available a one arm row is also great to add in.
    Current PRs:
    Bench Press: 200x1
    Deads: 315x1
    Back Squats: 275x1

    Thanks! Appreciate the supportive feedback And yeah I'm glad to add the rows to the party - I definitely think that my back and core are limiting factors atm.

    And, to report on the weekend and Monday:
    Went camping (it was fun!) - 3 hours walking on Saturday with 40lb pack, 8 hours walking Sunday without the pack, and then 3 hours on Monday with the pack.

    Nutes were pretty bad - averaged 1550 cal p/d across the 3 days (some of which from booze smdh), and just barely managed to hit 100g protein daily :/

    Today I:
    Yogaed, cycled, and felt sore in my quads. Did rows again instead of OHP - tried to go a little heavier and I think it was OK? I checked a couple of times in the mirror and I seemed to be maintaining appropriate form. Might jump up a bit next time and see how that goes. Weighed in at 154.6! But that might be post-hike dehydration - thinking about tracking weight daily and then doing a weekly average so I don't go nuts haha.
