Same!

Started BSing with this guy at 24 in Mansfield one night. I used the old line, I am too old for this shit. He laughed and said he use to think that also. However all of his friends that quit going to the gym have died. I asked how old he was and he stated like 57 or 62 or something. Big ole dude and I would have guessed late 40's. Most people that guess think I am late 30's to early 40's, but I am late 40's. I stop people in my age bracket all the time and think, fuck you look old. Drugs or weight are two biggest contributors to that usually.

Finally for a first in my life.
flat bench 225lbs for 5 sets of 5

Hit a lot if other personal goals in the gym too this last month.

But I dropped a 35lb plate straight down like a guillotine on my big toe knuckle from waist high. Busted it real good. Totally fucked my leg days and set my cardio plans back a few more weeks.

My wife got a fancy new scale that does a body fat reading and a bunch of other stuff. Normally my "summer shape" is what I would estimate as 11-12% based on the mirror test, and I gain maybe 5-6 lbs over the holidays (oct to jan).

This scale is saying high 15% now, but its given me a new challenge. I want to see it dip into the single digits for the first time in a very long time. That means instead of losing 5lbs in 3-4 months...I'm going to drop 12-14 lbs depending on my loss composition. Which puts me in the low 180s. It's amazing what a little digital readout can do in terms of pushing me to go somewhere I havent been on years...let's see if it works.

The first 2 months will be the bulk of loss at about 1-1.5 lbs per week. Itll be a relatively slow loss so I can preserve lean muscle mass.

I'm going to experiment with a much different workout plan that works muscle groups more frequently to preserve mass. I typically do a major workout for each muscle group only once a week, now I will do a heavy workout per group once, with 2 days of low weight high reps spread out through the week.

No alcohol at all in January and limited consumption in Feb. March will be just a few lbs to polish off the goal...but itll likely be the toughest.

Down about 0.5% body fat in a week while skeletal muscle went up a little (as a function if body weight). I think the loss in body fat is pretty accurate but doubt I gained muscle.

Regardless, I'm losing fat and not lean mass so I'm happy

Another 0.5% down and I'm almost back in the 180s. Just over 1% down for the month.

Well Iím 230-240 these days depending on what Iím doing. Still chasing that 405# flat bench. Chasing 405#+ squat and fixing my deadlift mechanics before I start to lift over 550 again. Just need to keep doing my thing and be consistent. Almost at the 7 year mark since my fatass started this all and the main thing is Iím keeping it off still. Thatís a feat within itself.

I never know what people mean on that - are you chasing that for 1 rep max? Or reps? Just curious I guess.

I rep 225 right now, and my end goal is I want to be able to do 315lbs for 10 reps on flat bench. I want to look cool with 6 plates on there. Figger you gotta be pretty strong if you can do 315 for 10 reps.

Been doing other things but I just started back up with squats again yesterday. My legs are rubbery. And don't want to walk when I want them to walk.

Main thing is get it up for 1 and then start attempting for reps. 315 was my goal for a long time and now I can get 6-7 without a spot. Slowly increasing on reps as time goes on. Just personal records is what I go for so I can continue to move forward.
