kari29's Journal, 10 May 2014

Week 4 of weight training (doing heavy lifts). My body is responding so well to it! I love the changes I am seeing :) Nick224 and I are applying Mike Mentzer's principles of maximum time under tension when we lift which allows us to lift heavy weight to failure, rather than merely completing a set amount of reps and sets. We BOTH are reaping HUGE benefits from this approach. I am down almost another pants size since beginning the weight training program, even though the scale hasn't moved a whole heckuva lot.
232.6 lb Lost so far: 23.4 lb.    Still to go: 72.6 lb.    Diet followed 100%.

Omg, that is awesome, Kari. I'm so happy to hear that you are losing inches even though the scale hasn't moved much, because that's what I'd like to do. But it IS moving for you and that's great! Make sure you eat substantial protein to fuel your weightlifting workouts. You're inspiring me to get back to working out next week. Thanks!

Way to go! And lifting is the the way to do it! I was always taught that the only rep that counts is the one you fail on. Everything before it is "practice". haha. You're doing awesome!
