    Gaining Again...Is it Muscle?

    I'd like to say I'm bulking but that is not the plan. I do notice more muscle but I think I am gaining 2lbs of fat for every 1lb of muscle. Seems hard to lose fat in the winter and most of my day job, for now, revolvees around using a computer. As soon as the plant I work at restarts, I'll get more daily activity,

    Water Weight Loss

    Went off the anabolic diet during Christmas and New Year's. Had a cold/flu the entire time also. Gained a lot of weight but it looks to be mostly water. I dropped carb and sodium intake down and dropped 3.6lb in one day and that is before a BM.

    Decided to Switch Weightlifting Programs

    I decided to switch weightlifting programs. I was doing Wendler's 5/3/1 and am now going to do Men's Health Power Training. I burned nearly 900 calories in 75 minutes versus 300 calories in 45 minutes. Granted, Wendler does recommend extra cardio work like sled drags or hill sprints but I like burning more calories with weights.

About Me

I am married and have three daughters. Between work and family, I try to find time to exercise. I suppose that from my family's perspective, I find too much time ;). My favorite form of exercise is weightlifting. It burns calories and builds muscle. I have lifted weights for many years but it wasn't until a little over a year ago that I found a website called StrongLifts.com that I was inspired to lift weights progressively. In other words, progressively add weights when you train so that you keep the body from fully adapting and thereby you keep building muscle mass. It took me a while to learn that this type of exercise is not the same as bodybuilding. You get bigger muscles but not that big. You get strong muscles. You get an increased metabolism. I am stronger than I have ever been in my life and it makes day to day chores a lot easier. I don't do much cardio. I do like biking but probably more from a perspective of getting out rather than as a form of exercise. I also like working on home projects at a pace that does provide some cardio benefits. Nice to get stuff done and see your effort. As far as nutrition goes, my diet varies depending upon current objectives. I keep protein to a minimum of 0.8g/lb of bodyweight but I vary fat and carb. I do take fish oil supplements as well as probiotics.
