    Check it out. Lift weights for strength, ride the dirt bike for conditioning. Makes it real simple.

    How many grams of protein are you all shooting for? Per day.

    That is looking at it through a narrow window. Eventually poor diet will catch you whether you exercise or not and your heart rate will be higher along with other health issues. You can be outwardly physically fit and have a poor diet leading to high blood pressure and your heart rate will be high. Less beats to move your blood equals better quality of life along with stamina and longevity. I was using heart rate as an indicator of health and making a point that these things in combination are healthy and will help the original OP. OP's diet is not bad just could improve and there are many benefits to doing it this way.

    I am glad to see your not-so-good diet has not affected your heart. Do what you do as it is working but I don't agree this is the norm for most people. - Jerry(LOL!)

    Terrible compared to yours, but not the worst, or that bad. I just don't restrict myself to the point of being miserable. that never works. You end up with urges and then you fall off the wagon. My BP was 106/64 last time I had it checked, so for now, I am doing ok. In my line of work, I simply cannot eat really clean, nor do I really want to. LOL water only sucks! haha

    sorry, IDK where I pulled Jerry from. haha maybe some odd combo of Jimmy and Jason. IDK. A little scattered here lately.

If you like the gym go try Orange Theory out. Way better than the normal gym routine. I only know this as I have daughters that use Orange Theory and I visited as a guest. Guess what. The whole routine is done wearing a hear rate monitor. No cheating! If you're not sweating real hard you have more to give.
    good advice right here, thank you

    a few of us said this. hahaha

    but, sounds like it's not a huge step for you, already in decent shape.

    Good luck. push it, use proper fuel to help you, you will get there.
