I’ve been reading T-Nation for about a year and a half now. Thought I’d come out.
Did a bit of lifting last summer, but got sidetracked.
About a month ago I started going at it seriously after I quit smoking.
At first just with lifting and protein/creatine supplementation, and then I started really pondering and pontificating about what it is I’m eating, why I need it, and when.
Currently I’m 24 years old, 6’6", 237lbs.
I’ve yet to establish 1RM’s, but what I do normally at the gym is:
5x5x308lbs rack pulls
4x10x77lbs bradford press
5x5x100lbs bent over narrow grip rows (to chin)
4x10x110lbs overhead halfpress
4x10x88lbs flat bench press (sucks, I know)
I don’t do all of them at the same time, and I don’t post squat numbers cause I am quite timid to do them as I don’t have anyone to spot me, but I have done 4x10x330lbs in an hacksquat machine.
I try to alternate my program as much as I can, doing what I feel like, but usually going at it 3-4 times per week, for 60-120 minutes at a time. And I just started doing cardio on my off days (damn I hate cardio).
I took 2 pics, both of them suck since I don’t have a clue about taking physique photos, and I just have this stupid camera phone that can’t stand on its own.
Plus somehow I look even fatter than I thought I was on them. But regardless, even though I forgot the shoe, I’d say I was about 20-25% BF. Maybe 21.33401%
Taking the pics was a bit of a downer, but regardless I think it will motivate me even more to ramp up some time in the gym.
