Not real sure where I fall, so I’m posting this here.
Never been involved in sports growing up, aside from playing racquetball in high school and college.
Did some Tae Kwon Do when I was 13-14. Weight training with a trainer around 17-18. Started lifting again at 23, along with about 10-15 hours a week of m.a. training (traditional TKD, filipino Arnis, bjj).
At 27 I stopped lifting and training, discovered drinking and working crazy hours.
Now, I’m 31. Trying to get back into regular strength training. Trying to drop the heavy drinking. And would like to get back into m.a. training.
I’m 5’11, approx. 165 lbs…but fall into the very stereotypical “skinny-fat” category.
I’ve been a “nervous” person for most of my life. I’m allergic to…living, basically. As a result, I don’t sleep well and still drink more than I should.
As far as working out: I’m, starting the 1st…following the 31 Day Challenge outlined on gymjunkies.com…hit 245 lbs. on my deadlift ORM on June 1st (personal best ever!!)
My eating tends to fall into the Anabolic Diet / “primal” eating (marksdailyapple.com).
I really don’t care for being huge. Honestly, I just want to be about 175 lbs. (my heaviest ever was 190) and be about 10% bf. Really, I want to be fit and healthy. And as strong as possible at that weight.
Not sure where I’m going with this. Been reading/lurking on here for about 10 years…and recently decided this is the place I need to frequent in order to reach my fitness goals.
Simply put, I wanna be a T-Man and any suggestions would be welcomed.
