In the past I have started up going to the gym many times, but I could never manage to keep myself consistent and would lose my gains, get deterred and stop. I can only blame myself and for this lack of determination.
A short bit about me:
I’m currently 6’3" and weigh 176lbs.
In high school I was not very physically active, didn’t go to the gym and I was skinny as a rail. I weighed around 140 lbs for the longest time. Fast forward a couple years and I find myself studying martial arts full time in China for 1 year, probably the hardest year of my life. It was during this time that the mind-muscle connection was made, balance, stability and agility was acquired and I started to put on some muscle. This was back in '07 and since then it has been an on/off kind of thing at the gym and I am now making a change to this pattern.
I found a local Muay Thai/Jiu Jitsu club that I will start attending come January. I am in pretty good shape cardio wise, but I plan further improve this with kickboxing, jumping rope and other misc. exercises at the Student Rec center before or after some of my workouts.
