I'm a guy in his mid-thirties, overweight beginner. I started training several months ago but have been messing up by not following programs properly, tweaking things, over doing it, under doing it, missing days and weeks, not studying proper form and falling off the diet wagon.Â
One thing I found when getting into the gym for the first time since high school, is that putting weight on the bar is very addictive. I had a realization that I will never have an ideal body but with patience and consistency I can be stronger than 99% of the population. This seems a hellavu better reason to train. Strength sports also seem very open to beginners and it's all on yourself how well you do.
I am going to follow the Greyskull LP (lifting progression derived from Starting Strength) as closely as possible and take my training ADD out of the equation. I choose GSLP because I can't power clean yet and it has some conditioning and other cool things written into it.
For diet I will be using the Anabolic diet. I'm going to overeat, work hard see how it goes in terms of body recomposition.
Interested in eventually getting into Powerlifting, Grappling and maybe Strong Man.
