Stayed the same. I was only able to gym-it Monday and Tuesday due to traveling. Weight stayed steady. I intend to make a violent push for 180 in the final weeks.

Greg, I need your workouts and supplements

I'm still making progress strength- wise and even mass-wise, but unless I can get cut, it's just not that noticeable. It's not a major accomplishment because I started from nothing, but I've increased my bench 110 lbs - from 65 to 175. I started with a bar (45lb) and a 10 on each side and was real wobbly my first time out. I was on a different bench yesterday with a heavy bar (55lb), 45, 10, and 5lb plates on each side. I got it 3x and failed on the 4th. This is the most I've ever been able to bench. I would like to see if I can hit 200 just 1 time by the time this contest is over. With dumbbells, I was pressing 20s when I started. I was able to do 60s 6x yesterday...without failure. Went from being able to tri press 45lb up to 120 x10 yesterday. I've been working my core good. Went from not being able to complete 15 situps to 75 situps nonstop. I can feel I've got a wall of muscle now below my gut. So the strength/muscle is there and gaining and I've got a good diet, but not perfect. Even though I'm not cut, I'm definitely in the best shape of my life at this point. So I'll take that.

I have not been nearly as disciplined as I should have or could have and I am still down to 133 as of this morning. AND I was able to jog nearly 3 miles nonstop today... might not seem like much to you conditioned folks but that is HUGE for me. I'm proud of myself even if I am still not where I want to be... yet!

Last time I tried to run I made it 15 minutes before it became excruciating. Good job April.

Thank you. I'm really proud of myself and I look forward to increasing my endurance. I actually enjoy it... it doesn't feel like torture. haha

It absolutely gets easier, and fairly quickly too. Before my wreck I was able to rin for an hour solid with barely getting my breating up, as compared to feeling like my chest would explode after 20 minutes when I first tried jogging. Unfortunately my weak link is the rod in my leg now, not my lungs.

I've heard mention of the "runner's high" in which your body starts releasing endorphins, but I've never ran long enough to get to that point. Jogging is a means to and end to me, necessary evil if you will.
