Consistency is in the eye of the beholder.

"Moment" is the operative word! Not really any more. He's settling down.

Eh, more like strongly contemplating settling. But seriously, if you were to look at my training since Feb 2011, you’d think, “Hmm, ok, basically average 3x /week full body, 85% compound lifts, well balanced, some core work sprinkled in, a bit of dabbling in this or that protocol”. It may very well appear as if it was intended. It’s not like I’m going from Power Lifting focus to BB, to Marathon Runner.

While on this, my strong thought for the stable program going forward will the a 4 day /wk, looking like this in general:

Sun: Full body Complex(s), Prehab Work (i.e. light pulling), Short Burst Cardio
Tue: Full Body Upper Push/Pull, Lower
Thu: Upper (All)
Fri: Lower

There will be Suitcase carries after work on Wednesday, and Pallof Press between Squat Sets (2x week), and Planks on Sun & Thu, and Deadbugs every other off day on living room floor.
Cable chops and TGU eventually.

Yes it’s the most incredible hybrid ever. It will be a 2 week schedule, where I rotate Heavier, vs Volume/Speed, vs just normal days for various movements. Ex. One Friday would be Heavy Squats, and Speed Deadlift (may use suitcase Deads here). The next Friday is Heavy Deads, and maybe light/speed Front squats. This should work good with my historical needs for recovery and desire to have variety and goals of strength gains and weight loss.
Anyway, it works great also with my tendency to eat out on Friday, and bring food home on Tuesday.

I have a log of all my training since I put the rack in (Jan? Feb2011). Just saying, I’m fickle but not quitting!

:grin:

Good job on the weight loss in Oct. Don't worry about the up and down. There are lots of things that can cause flucuations and it's not all bad. Usually short term changes are water and it comes and goes quickly. A high carb or high salt meal can make a big difference but it's really meaningless. You can actually lose fat while the scale goes up. Just keep eating healthily making sure you satisfy any significant hunger once in a while without stuffing yourself.

just to add to what Stu said: you'll be building muscle too which'll change your weight.

you thought I'd forgotten about you, didn't you Ozzy?

You thought I wasn't going to ask you how your weight loss is going, didn't you?

Well you thought wrong my friend. I demand to know how your weight loss has been going.

Have you abandoned the effort, or just gotten lazy, or changed your strategy? Losing weight will really help you get that first chinup.
