Well I haven’t posted on this site in a LONG time. Some may remember me, most won’t. I started a new career, I went through an academy to get where I am now. The academy included a lot of long distance running, and I lost size and strength. I wasn’t, in my opinion very strong before this, and I came out weaker.
I have a couple reasons for training other then the fact I just like it. I work 12.5 hour shifts in what can be concidered a dangerous environment. I often work with dangerous people, and I make them unhappy just about every day. I often get threatened and have on a few occasions had to overpower them.
Some day, one of these dirtbags will try to prevent me from going home to my family safe, and I train so when that day comes I can turn the tables.
I have 2 kids, and I lead a “somewhat” active life. I still like to get together and play football, softball, basketball etc. This is one of the other reasons I train. I want to get leaner right now, not so I can see all of my abs. I feel if I lose some of my inefficient weight I’ll get more explosive.
In the past I’ve had trouble training consistently. Since my new career has started, I’ve been pretty consistent for the last year. I’ve bumped around from 5x5, to OVT to WS4SB. Since I may tryout for a charity football team towards the end of the year, I’m sticking to the WS4SB stuff. Some, if not most of my training days are after working a 12.5hour shift, that I often don’t get to eat for 6-7 hours.
If anyone has any criticism, feel free to give it to me. I have a training partner that is 145lbs and shows up about 30% of the workouts. Other then that I train alone in a commercial fitness gym. If I’m doing too much of something, or not enough of something else, please let me know.
Body fat: Not sure. I can see some abs, but I still have some love handles.
