A bit about me. I’m 42,6’6" weigh 112 kilos. I was a bit over 120,but went on a protein shake diet about 6 weeks ago.Off the crash diet now. I’ve been training for about 9 years. I trained with some great guys along the way and learned a lot. I moved to Australia 5 years ago. About 3 years ago, I discovered Mike Mentzer and HIT training.
Until recently I was heavily involved in alcohol since moving to Aus. Suffice it to say, I was drinking about a case of beer a day. Now, I am back and this is my training log! My goals are a nice muscular body and a way to workout that i can continue into old age. You’ll notice it’s not strictly HIT.
