I am 24 years old. I went through my phases throughout high school and college getting cut up (never too bulky though) and toner, and losing it and getting back into it after a few drinking/eating poorly binges.......and now working in the office chained to my desk got me looking a bit pudgy and unfit.
My muscle mass has started to reduce and my posture is not how it used to be. I feel sluggish, dependent on coffee and I never have energy. This never used to be a problem for me until the past year or so since I had the job. Currently I work out sporadicouly, which is surely part of the problem.
Eating is also on a when I want what I want basis which is something which needs to be changed as well. I read several of the articles here, which is serving as motivation to pass my previous peaks and get back to where I want to go.
My goals are to become lean again quickly especially around the waist aand abdonominals, and also fat in the upper legs and glutes. I am now about 180 lbs- but I believe my body fat is 15% or maybe even more. I want to also bulk up my shoulders and broden them along with my back. I also want to get my chest to expand and bulk up.
I am willing to commit to a routine and time commitment of 45 minutes per day at 5am-before I have to go to work and which also should serve as a pump up for energy and mood throughout the day.
Now I am ready to be serious again in getting into tip top shape- for good. I am getting very interested in nutrition as I am now opening up my eyes to the powerful role it holds in success with your body and routines.
I purchased today Spike, Alpha Male, and HOT-ROX extreme but wont receive it until later this week to start. I am thinking of starting the Spike and Alpha Male first and HOT-ROX to knock of the excess fat after gaining some muscle mass in the upper body. I want to start over from scratch- the right way.
Can Anyone offer help on eating traing programs and also the motivation to be strict to it? Any positive suggestions appreciated.
