I’m a 27yo male, just got cleared to work out after leg surgery. I’m about 175-180lb and 5’8".
I just got out of the service due to the surgery, and always thought about getting into lifting but always had excuses not to. Now I’ve got nothing but time and opportunity so I’m hoping to best the excuses and get to it.
I bought a 7ft olympic bar, 300lb of weight, and a power rack and bench. My goals are to lose body fat and get stronger, my weight isn’t a huge concern(aside from it being lean). All of this is stuffed in a room just barely wide enough to fit my purposes.
I bought the equipment with the idea of beginning with Starting Strength and was hoping to see if there was any reasons to not go with it or any tips to increase my results.
My diet is terrible and is something I will be working on as I go. I’ve already nixed sodas and am starting to eat more home cooked meals.
Anyway, with the equipment that I have, will the basic SS routine be a good launching point for me to meet my goals?
