I'm a regular over at http://ironstrong.org, started lifting weights regularly in April 2011 after I lost 85lbs of weight. I started modestly, with just the bar on most exercises, and as of April 2014, I'm able to lift:

  • Squat: 455lb
  • Bench: 290lb
  • Overhead press: 170lb
  • Deadlift: 520lb

I'm still improving, both in the amount I can lift, and removing the amount of fat I'm carrying around.

comment Advice for improving metabolism burn: how do we keep it in high gear?
The fat is still being burned at the higher HR range, it's just that in proportion, most of the calories are coming from glycogen stores.

comment Is it a myth to wait before eating, after workout, due to Krebs Cycle?
Without seeing the source of that theory or even what the perceived benefits are, we have nothing to go on.
