It’s Sunday and, as always, today I’ll be evaluating my progress over the past week…

My scale weight this morning is 204.8 pounds, which is a 1.4 pound gain over the past week. That’s a total of 9.8 pounds gained in 5 weeks. Subtracting 3 pounds to account for water weight from the creatine, that’s an average of 1.36 pounds gained per week – no change there. Let’s check out my measurements and body fat reading…

My body fat reading this morning is 12% (as measured by the Fat Track PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers). That’s identical to last week’s measurement. I dunno, I expected it to be higher. We took the measurements 3 times and got 11.8%, 12% and 12%. Let’s see what the tape says…

This week’s tape measurements (as measured by the MyoTape) show continued progress. Over the past week I’ve gained another quarter inch on my chest, a quarter inch on my quads, and a quarter inch on my hips. My arm, waist, forearm and calf measurements all increased slightly, but not quite a full quarter of an inch.

I’m very happy that my chest measurement is continuing to go up every week because I feel my chest needs a lot of work. Part of the chest measurement increases can be attributed to my lats growing wider, but hopefully my chest is growing, too. My right side has always lagged behind my left side in size (but not strength); my right pec in particular is noticeably smaller than my left pec. Lately I’ve been focusing on the right side of my body when forming the mind-muscle connection as I lift. I hope this helps even things out a bit.

My waist measurement is still below 33.25″, so no increase there. I’m happy about that. I’m pretty sure the reason my hip measurement keeps going up is because my butt is growing bigger and stronger from all those heavy lunges! 😆

All my stats, past and present, can always be found on the stats page.

Later today I’ll be doing a brief supplemental workout – just some extra traps work to try and bring up this very weak area. I’ll be doing power shrugs and some traditional barbell shrugs. Thankfully the soreness I was feeling in my traps yesterday is mostly gone, so I think I’m good to go.

Well, I’d better sign off and go clean the house. I wanted to get it done and out of the way yesterday, but Lisa was not having it. So now we get to do it this morning. Joy.
