This is mah log.
I think we mostly all know each other already.
In the words of Winston Churchill: "A joke is a very serious thing"
This is my Song:
Brief background: Was very sick with Hypothyroidism and Reverse T3 syndrome until 2010. Got super fat, my hair fell out, slept ALL THE TIME, could barely work... I slept on my office floor on lunch breaks and would sleep in my car before I drove home - I felt too tired to drive home five miles safely. Heinosity. The Reverse T3 syndrome made it so standard supplemental T4 made me sicker and sicker. I finally found and went to my amazing doctor at Holtorf Medical Group on 4/17/2010.
Was in the gym 6/1/2010. I started with Body for Life... say what you will for me it was an awesome beginners program and got me lifting again for the first time since college. September 2010 I started working with a professional coach. He was great and I lost ALOT of weight with him. Right now I'm taking a break from active coaching.
Just switched up to 5/3/1 to focus on strength for Fall/Winter and will be doing quite a bit of BB accessory work also. I'm on the fence regarding cardio. Sometimes I love it sometimes I hate it. We shall see how that pans out.
Height: five seven
Weight: around 140. I plan to stick around 140 all winter as long as my strength keeps going up.
Athletic History: Highschool swimming and soccer, Hobbyist Quad Roller Skater (srs LOL)
Goals: Build Muscle this winter without getting fatter. Like at all fatter.
Program: 5/3/1 plus BB accesssory work
Injuries: Healed up from strained lat but my DL is WAY OFF major working weight reset there.
Diet: I am eating around 2k calories a day here lately. More on this later.
I just finished my first cycle of 5 3 1. I am using blackironbeast.com calculator which allow sme to put in rep PRs as oposed to 1RM... I've never even attempted a 1RM so this is good for me. The info I put in the calculator is what I lifted my final workouts of cycle 1. I have lifted much higher on the DL but am trying to stay safe here still eskeered from my injury. Here is the info for my current cycle which I will be starting today:
