The increase in cycling mileage, race intensity has affected strength levels.  I’ve been dealing with upper and lower back soreness and tight psoas for a couple weeks.

My body composition is almost identical as tested 18 months ago.  My fat over the past year has floated between 15 and 20%.  I was affected by injury, surgery and rehab.  I also moved homes, work locations, got married; and, changed sports which has affected activity levels.    My nutrition has been fairly consistent over the past few months and sleep has improved.  I’ve noticed my set point is about 18% body fat. To maintain at 10% body fat I need to train 16 to 20 times per month and tighten up my nutrition.  I’m not eating sufficient protein to sustain the work I need to do – that has to be a priority.

My upper body strength has stalled out.  However, I don’t want to overtax my repaired shoulder with too much volume or intensity.   Instead I will add other exercises: heavier dumb-bells and kettle-bells, weighted carries.
