I found that when I concentrated on strength workouts that the muffin-top vanished faster.

I agree, and I experienced the same thing through 2013 and 2014, but this year I've been neglecting my diet and my training has been less than consistent.  I'll get back on track.

Did a leg workout on the lighter side last night.  I was working on the Hammer Strength Leg Press, which is the one where you sit upright and press straight forward.  The weight I can push on that is about 2/3 of what I do on the 45 degree leg press, but last night I was using much less than that.  While I was on it, a big bodybuilder dude who was at this gym for the first time, was walking around looking at all the equipment and got excited about seeing that HS Leg Press.  "Wow, you don't see these everywhere.  Tomorrow's leg day, so I'll be on this bad boy."  So then I was embarrassed to have only 270 lbs of plates on the machine while he was watching me use it. 

Wednesday Sept. 16 - Legs

HS Leg Press:
180 x 12
180 x 12
180 x 10
270 x 10
270 x 10

Lying Leg Curls:
70 x 10 - 3 sets
90 x 5 - 2 sets

Seated Calf Raises:
90 x 15
115 x 10 - 4 sets

PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

So I was off from the gym Sept. 18 -26.  The end of Summer, and the end of off-and-on training I've been doing for 4 months. 

So I got back to the gym Sunday Sept. 27, and shook off the dust and cobwebs with a light full-body workout:

Sunday Sept. 27 - Full Body 
Deadlifts:
135 lb x 5
135 lb x 10 - 3 sets

Bench Press:
bar x 20
135 lb x 10 - 3 sets

Leg Press - TechnoGym Machine:
220 lb x 10 - 3 sets

Military Press:
bar x 10
65 lb x 10
75 lb x 10
75 lb x 10

Lying Leg Curls:
70 lb x 10
50 lb x 12
50 lb x 12

Then I got sick overnight Sunday night, and was sick all day yesterday with a 24-hour stomach bug.  Could not stray far from the bathroom.  Then I felt 100% fine and well when I got up this morning.  Someone at work told me, "There's no such thing as a 24 hour bug.  It was food poisoning." 
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

Sorry to hear you were sick Toby but glad it was only the "24 hour bug".  ;)  Some people need to learn.

Glad to hear you're back in the gym too.

Actually, there are some intestinal viruses that last ~24-36 hours. They'd hang around longer but since we're usually "flushing" them out, the viral load gets low enough our immune system takes over.

I've had this 24 hour bug thing a few times myself. It sucks but beats food poisoning.

I've always read that food poisoning is much worse than what most people think it is.  Much worse than a short-lived intestinal virus. 

Anyway...  Decent shoulder workout last night.

 Wednesday Sept. 30 - Shoulders

Military Press:
bar x 15 - twice
95 lb x 11
100 lb x 8
105 lb x 7
110 lb x 6
115 lb x 5
(To failure on the last four sets, as in I tried to go a rep further and couldn't)

Dumbbell Reverse Flys, face-down on 45 degree bench:
17.5's x 10 - 3 sets
15's x 10 - 2 sets

Dumbbell Lateral Raises:
20's x 10 - 3 sets
17.5's x 10
15's x 10

Front Raise with BB Plate:
35 lb x 10 - 5 sets

Felt good to get in 20 solid sets.  Nothing record-breaking, but a good hour's workout.

For being out of the gym a while that's a strong showing with the shoulder presses!  :)

And, yes, food poisoning is way worse. Had 1 episode that was confirmed by county health way back in '93. Could barely hold down water let along anything else for 4 days. I was lucky I didn't have to have a hospital stay like some others did. County health traced it back to Subway sandwiches with the cold cut combo meat. ~ 200 people got sick from those. Happened over a weekend. By Monday county health had traced it back. For whatever reason that box(s)? (not sure how many) of the cold cut combo meat was bad.

Don't let those random 'off' days bug you. I have had more than my share of them. Just do your thing and get through the workout. Next time you'll kill it.

Thanks man, and welcome to the IS forums.  I've been struggling a big lately with my schedule, with tendinitis, and with diet consistency & tracking.  I'm not lifting any PR-setting weights these past few weeks, but keep on plugging along...
