I'm pretty much 'done' as far as losing weight is concerned, last official weigh-in had me at 82.5kg and 10% body fat, saw 81.1kg once, though now I'm bouncing around 83kg with the intent of losing more body fat and improving skeletal muscle mass.

BMI has me (just) in the 'over' range, I'm happy with that as I'm also already 'over' on the muscle range, I know I'm going to add a few more kg's in muscle so BMI is of no real concern.

Had my first real decent ride in ages on the weekend, absolutely smashed it compared to the last few years, didn't have the ride fitness I would have liked though stamina and general fitness felt worlds better than before.

As an aside I handed out some BN samples at the gym with some good feedback and one of the trainers, who also competes, is stoked with the quality, range and price.
Damn, 10% and under is very lean, you'll be riding shirtless with transparent armour to show off the hard work soon!

The biggest difference I noticed between being fit and unfit on the bike was recovery after spells through the day. I found previously if I really struggled I'd hit a wall, and would never quite be the same from there on.

Being fit meant I'd be far less likely to get to that point, and if I ever did, in a few minutes I'd be fine again. It's likely a lot to do with the conditioning and familiarity of stress to the body high intensity training brings. If the bodies conditioned to hit 180bpm and really exert the aerobic system on a constant basis, ridings just another typical stress.

You compare that to someone who does zero training and gets out on the bike once a month. Their base is zero and riding so infrequently means there's just no fitness improvement.

"Bike fitness" is another matter, but being fit generally puts you so far out in front before that's a factor.

Many thanks for promoting us. We now employ 50 Australians full time in production, marketing, customer service etc, and we put a lot back into the economy buying local ingredients etc. People like you keep our business going, so it's really appreciated.
Feel free to PM me if you want any specific samples too.

Thanks

The ride was awesome, felt so good to be able to just keep going long after I normally would have had to stop for a rest.
I stopped just after the halfway point just to regroup with the others (and have some carbs), turned out they stopped just before the half way point to regroup, oh well.
Did the rest of the ride non-stop and got going again quickly from a whoopsie just before the finish on a 'hard' section.
Felt great the following days = no recovery period or soreness.
Considering how long it has been between rides I was stoked just how much difference not being overweight and unfit could make to my riding ability.

i found the same thing. recovery after a technical climb was almost instant (under 1 minute) so you can just keep riding and riding all day without getting tired. even in physically demanding terrain (lifting bike over obstacles constantly and pushing up sections). now my heart rate won't really go over approx 130bpm while riding but i can easily keep it above 160 for 5 mins while running/sprinting.

Just came across this thread, hit rock bottom when last at doctor and tipped the scales at 117kg. I am trying the man shake diet and am liking it. Doing 70 km on the bike per week as well. First goal is to loose enough weight to fit into my suit for my nieces wedding in early December so I don't have to buy another one..... got 3 already. Second goal is to be 100kg by xmas. I don't use the shaker, i use the magic bullet thingo and it makes a perfect smoothie.

Assuming you're weighing at the same time interval, something a bit higher in salt than usual several hours prior to a weigh can cause you to retain fluid and weigh heavy for a one off, don't stress yet.

I've been on the Bulk Nutrients WPI for a few years now.
I have it every day with skim milk & yoghurt (maybe a few berries now and then)

Kickboxing twice per week, 1 x gym session and 1 x 8klm walk to stretch out a little.

I have been able to maintain 84kg ~ 85 kg for quite some time now and i feel that this is my balance weight between strength & endurance.

**still working on that elusive six-pack though

It is amazing how many people seem to let themselves go after 50

Purely a low body fat percentage thing.

Had a barely visible 4 pack for several years now don't expect an effeminate thin waist with a six pack if you use your core, a strong core needs diameter.

The first prominent muscle I got was just below the ribcage, asked the doctor if it was a hernia.

No I'm not taking photos of my freckly fair skinned torso, eww.
