Hi guys, I am from the land down under and have decided to join this forum after weeks of research looking for a knowledgeable, well respected site, even though half a world away! I have been a knock about lifter for a year or so and have lacked consistency and poor diet. I am not going to blame shift work (mostly nights) on my lack of consistency; its more my lazy ass and care free attitude.
I have improved my diet (and attitude), and began lifting consistently for 6 weeks (while I research a quality program that I could commit too). My goal while getting old is to be SAF, which when translated from Aussie slag means; Strong as F@#@#k.
My stats are: 48 yo Male, 89kgs, 22% body fat.
My lifts (for 5RM with 2 in reserve) are: Squat 80kg, Bench 70kg, OHP 45kg, DLF 110kg.
From reading this site two points have stood out; 1) you need to train a muscle at least twice per week and, 2) the 531 program is a good place to start (I think). My question is: Given my lack of real lifting experience and age, is the 531 program the right choice?
