So here I am. I'm planning on keeping this log so that in 2 years time I can look back and laugh at how bad I had let myself slip.
Been training on-and-off for 2 years, but if you lump together the 'on' it's probably less than a year.
Currently 6' (and hope to stay there!), 225Ib and BF at around 30%. I haven't tested my BF for a long time, but imo there's no point if you have an over-hang anyway.
I went on the V-Diet 2+ years ago, then moved onto the Anabolic Diet and was around 196 @ 17%BF. Then I got clobbered with depression and gave up completely. I started lifting for a few months (about 6 months ago) and rather oddly managed new PRs in all my lifts:
DL @ 395 x 2
Squat @ 330 x 1
BP @ 265 x 1
Nowhere near what most of the monsters on this site are lifting (well, maybe for warm-up), but not bad for a lard-arse with only one patella.
I seem to have lost my strength since, but now I'm determined to see my abs for the first time since . . . well, since I was 15, I think.
1. See at least 4 abs
2. Lose man-boobs
3. See penis without leaning forward or using a mirror
4. Find where my chin / jaw-line disappeared to
5. Have a smaller hip size than my wife
6. Get big in the manner befitting of this great site.
