I’ve really been enjoying this site and it’s forums over the last few weeks, so have decided to start a training/(hopefully)progress log.
I used to train in my 20’s, was never in great shape but made some size and strength gains.
10 years off, and I find myself fat and out of shape.
I’m 180cm tall and this morning weighed 214lbs, I’ve no idea what my body fat% is, I’ll try to get a photo up later.
I would like to lean up considerably, this will be my main focus, any muscle gains would be nice too!
I’ve joined a gym and have been training in the morning before work and Saturday’s for the last 2 weeks.
Kind of doing push/pull/legs, six days a week, but with a horizontal plane push/pull day then a vertical plane push/pull day. I don’t have that long to train so volume is low and I’m not really going to failure on any sets yet.
Been trying to keep my carb intake low as I feel I’m quite sensitive to them, eating a couple of chicken breasts a day, some eggs, vegetables,and having a protein supplement after training.
I’ve lost 6lbs in 2 weeks, but realise this rate of loss won’t last.
I’m hoping keeping this log will help me stay motivated.
Is it OK to have a log in the over 35’s section or should I have posted this elsewhere?
