    Back of hols.
    Fatness over fitness the goal

    1 mile jog
    2 k rowing
    3 mile bike

    32 minutes to complete it.
    30 mins sauna

    Its a start from which to build on.

    See how long I can stop off the ale too.

    100kg needs to drop to 80kg

    Hard work and stronger mental attitude

    See how we go��

    Good to hear you back on the health kick Stagger...

    100kg down to 80kg is a big ask though, but it can be done. Depends I guess on your body frame and ideal weight...

    At my worst I was 102kg and i had a target of 84kg. Got down to 90kg in less than 3 months through good diet and hard exercise. Then it slowed down but got down to a regular weight of between 82-84kg. Then an extra push and I got down to 78kg for a fight, and pushed down to 76kg whilst training in Thailand (different climate/lifestyle/full-time training, I'd never achieve that over here). Now walking around at 80-82kg and that's probably about ideal for me, but I still look pretty well built for a fell runner, even though as my dad would say "there's more fat on a chip"....

    Takes a change in lifestyle rather than just a period of diet though in my opinion...

    Been again to the gym.

    Increased by 35watts every 2 minutes.
    Has you pedalling a cadence of 60-80.

    170 max Hr
    32.4 VO2 max
    245 watts

    So this was for a 55yr male weighing 100kg

    Monthly efforts now to monitor performance ��

    Had to really force myself today.
    Just a steady recovery session.
    15 mins horizontal bike 110Hr
    25 mins stretching and floor work.

    Legs tired but a fraction lighter on the scales, so a smile on my face.

    Early morning steady effort with no food prior to training.

    15 min run 75-80% Hr
    15 min bike 75-80% Hr
    Stretching and balance for recovery.

    5 sessions in 8 days. No alcohol or choc either.

    Might just be on the turn �� (I hope so)
