6’5”, 235lbs, 53y/o. Stopped working out 10 years ago due to neck and back injuries. Spent 8 years with a serious painkiller addiction. Turned into the ultimate jelly donut blob. Got my act together 3 years ago. Clean and sober. 20 months ago I started the claw back into the iron. I’ve always admired/aspired to the aesthetic classical physique. Would like some feedback on what I’m lacking because my basic body dismorphia doesn’t really allow me to be objective, and I just don’t have friends my age who are into the workout thing.
I train at home using a pin and a smith machine, along with a few dumbbells. I do a pretty Workman-like routine with a push/pull/legs split. I try for six days a week, but average more like 5. I try to eat clean, but have a normal American dinner with my family nightly. I essentially eat a low carb, no sugar, high protein, medium fat diet.
