Alexmiezin's Workout Journal

Background:

Been lifting weights for six years now. Bulked from 145 to 220 then cut back down to 145. I am at 145 now at about 12% bf or so. I do not lift for strength as I have aortic stenosis, which is a heart condition. I have done every split/routine/workout under the sun. I am used to lifting weights 5-6x per week, so this progream will be a change of pace for me.

I will be following Frank Zane’s program in his training book. It offers an entire year of training. I will be posting progress pictures throughout the thread. Hopefully I can throw some up tomorrow as I started the program off today.
