I haven’t done one of these for a while, so time to report on all the gainz or lack thereof. There hasn’t been a lifting thread because there hasn’t been much lifting due to moving house and initial renovation efforts. We moved house on a Tuesday and I went to the gym the day before, but I quickly realised that the gym was going to be off the table while the nightmare of shifting was ongoing.
This week I returned in a state of morbid trepidation. At my age, (46), you deal with the fact that the gainz are extremely fleeting. You lose it much much faster than you gain it. I was already having trouble with the squat before I took the moving break and I had decided to deload 10kg. So I went from 87.5kg back down to 77.5kg. When I came back to the gym I hit 80kg and it was a struggle. A big struggle.
