I’m 35yo, 5’10" and weight 65kg. I’m now at the end of my 5th week of training and so far I’m happy with the results; I feel stronger and healthier.
Here’s my WO schedule, WO days are Mo, Wed, Fri – and I’m curious to hear your thoughts on them if you have any.
Bench Press 3x8
Dumbell Press 3x8
Dumbell Shrug 3x8
Seated Dumbell Curl 3x8
Basic Crunches 3x12
Push Ups 1x20, 2x15 (When I started with this I could only do 1x10, 1x5 so I’m very happy with the progress there. The idea is to work my way up to 3x20 and after that progressive loading perhaps or maybe a few more reps. We’ll see.)
My goal is simple: add 10kg of lean mass in 6 months. So far I’ve had an increase of 1kg and I know its muscle as my fatpercentage is definitly down. Haven’t measured it yet as I don’t have the means to do so but I estimate it at around 13-14%. I wouldn’t mind dropping that fatpercentage a bit but it isn’t a high priority.
Right now I consider my eating habits the biggest obstacle to gains; I’m not a big eater and I find it much harder to eat throughout the day then to train and sleep properly. So right now that will be something I’ll be focussing in on heavily. For starters, starting tomorrow I will keep a foodlog to accurately keep track of my caloric and protein intake.
I will also try to get some pics up soon and update that each month to have something to compare myself to at the end of the six month period.
Glad to be here!
