Hi there bodybuilding community. My name is Rob. I first got serious about working out in about November of 2008. My mother is overweight, (had at that time one total knee replacement) and she was not very motivated to change her life. So I started to go to the gym with her. I have been in the gym every week since. Fitness once a mild intrest of mine has developed into a insatiable passion.
I have learned a lot in a year and a half and love that you can never learn all there is to know about fitness. I am currently pursueing a BS in Nutrition and I enjoy learning about fitness and Nutrition. I have enjoyed what the gym has done for me so far I have gone from about 200 lbs at the end of high school in 2006 to 153 lbs 5’7.5" tall and 11.7% bodyfat in 2010. What has happened with my body thus far has made me truly optimistic about the possibilties for my body in the future.
Recently I realized the benefits of long-term planning, so right now I am first trying to define my goals and second develop a detailed plan for acheiving those goals for the next 5-8 years of my life. Goal numero uno Build a Solid base level of fitness, what this means to me is that I want to build my physical fitness level up to the point where my body can handle 3-4 hours of intense physical training sessions 6 times every week. Goal number two I want to have a jaw dropping physique, What this means to me is weigh 175-180 lbs at 6-8% body fat on my 5’8" frame. My goal with this blog is to gain help and advice from people with experience in formulating a long-term plans (2 plus years) in order to acheive my goals. That’s all for now I think. Thanks for reading my long self-righteous post.
Any comments appreaciated constructive criticism greatly desired.
