Pre Powerlifting Weight

I really don't have any training to speak about but my consistency has been really good. I have been keeping active and my fitbit is keeping track over everything. This morning I went for my standard walk around the block, 2km. Tonight my lovely wife and I went on a good long walk. 5.85km. This morning I weighed in at 283lbs. My first competition in 2005 I weighed 284lbs. As the post title states I'm the lightest I've been in 13 years. Lets keep this ball rolling.

Fun Day

With Canada Day being on a Sunday (I was also working all day) today is a holiday. We got together as a family and went out for breakfast then went for a walk around the Assiniboine park. I love being lighter in body weight. It allows me to goof off lots more. I can run and jump and really fool around with my kids. We walked about 5km in the park not to mention all the running and jumping I did. Fun stuff.

When we got home my lovely wife assisted me in changing the snow tires on our van to summer tires. I know it's late in the season but we really didn't have time before now. We also took the van to get washed. At least it looks great now on the outside.

After that I BBQ'd some hamburgers and sausages for supper. The evening was slow so I cracked a beer and set up some weights in the garage.

Narrow Grip Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 6 sets/12 reps/185lbs.
Inclined Dumbbell Extensions - 6 sets/12 reps/20lbs.
Inclined Dumbbell Flys - 6 sets/8 reps/20lbs.

I supper set each exercise. The Inclined Flys were done slow to stretch the concentric portion of the movement and dynamic during the eccentric portion. After the weights I decided to cap off my day with the standard walk around the block. Lots of calories burnt today.
