Hello T-nation, enjoy the site, thank you for all the incredible information!
Starting a training log for some extra dietary accountability as well as to be able to look back at my progress.
I am 45 years old, 5 foot 11, weighed in at 255 lbs on Jan 1st. Looking to get down to sub-200 while retaining as much muscle as possible. I know this means getting serious about my diet. I’ve been tracking for 2 weeks, starting out with 3 basic goals: 2200 cals max, 175 g protein minimum and no alcohol.
Followed CT’s perform like/look like… program through Nov/Dec, really enjoyed the workouts, found that my knees couldn’t handle doing squats/DL 6 days a week so I did push/pull/rest…repeat.
The past 2 weeks I’ve been following Best Damn Workout number 2. It’s taken some getting used to, a lot of shoulder and arm soreness but that seems to be subsiding. Following the program as written with the following substitions:
Day 2- DB hammer curl for BB curl to avoid wrist issues
Day 3- DB flies for pec deck, so I can do the first 3 WO’s at home
Day 5- Zercher squat for leg extension, to avoid knee issues
Will be posting workouts as they are done as well as weighing in every 2 weeks.
