Just saying hello here quick.
I have been reading this site for over 2 years on and off, it's always stood out as the place that cuts the figurative 'shit' and gets right to it. I've been amazed this year with just how much new cutting edge information that has been released by people like CT and thanks to the effort of many others in that process.
I've never trained for much longer than about 10 weeks... I got some good gains, I think I went from 148 - 170 in that time, performing somewhat of a traditional 4 day split, chest/tricep, back/bicep, shoulders and then legs which was basically just a cop out involving a few sets of hack squats. I did something of around 2 exercises per bodypart and between those two exercises about 12 sets per bodypart.
I injured myself benching and after that my life circumstances changed a bit and I haven't been able to workout since. This month I've taken some drastic actions and I've put things in place to get better.
I'm currently about 160 and I'm about to start a 4-week blitz on my body, just because I can't stand how I look right now.
This time round I'm going for mark rippetoes starting strength programme. I've decided for this particular one because you can't argue with his results or his methods and regardless of if I have no intention of ever doing meets in powerlifting and regardless of the fact I'm not as dedicated as some of you guys in the sense of developing outstanding physical strength, I would like the best balance of strength and physique, so I guess my goal is to look like I workout.
So I've got the food to fuel my workouts and I'm getting myself some Biotest supp's screw the fact the price is steeper than some other brands out there, because I want quality stuff and frankly some of the other supplements I'm seeing are scaring me. No-XPLODE or w.e and so on.
One final thing to add, I'm dedicated to this, last time round I did nothing but commit my day to bodybuilding 100% this time round it's the same, except I feel like I'm doing a better programme with less chance of injuring myself and using supplements to optimize my recovery even more. Also I'm a bit of a volume fanatic, I like it and I respond well to it so I'm doing 2 a days. Workout A in the Morning workout B at night.
I'll post back when I see some results.
Have a good christmas!
