Formerly active member, taken a couple of years out as lifting fell way down my list of priorities. Two kids and a whole lot of drama later and I found myself as 220+lbs of weakness, decidedly south of vag and decided to do something about it. That was about 6 months ago, give or take, and I’ve been slowly ramping up my efforts since, while getting accustomed to fitting lifting into my new family life.
Height: 6 foot (still)
Weight: 188.6 lbs
Maxes (difficult to tell on many, as I’ve not even approached a max for a long time on most of these lifts)
Bench: 80kg x 2 easy reps, 65kg x 16 reps
Squat: 92.5kg x 10 breathing squats
Press: 45kg x 6
Deadlift: 150kg x 1
As someone totally new to training for physique goals rather than performance, I am definitely in need of advice, as well as a few gentle reminders to do the things I should be doing (like abs and cardio), so feel free to chip in and tell me I’m doing it all wrong.
