K, lets try and keep this short.
I used to be a collegiate athlete who last year decided to focus on other things (lets be honest, I wasn’t going to make it to the NFL). I have a budding Sports Performance program (i.e. S & C stuff) and will see an athlete who I helped train (in VA) be the first to make it in a professional sporting league (the NFL). Currently my client list is full and I enjoy the clients I train now.
On top of that I have a serious gf, school, and will be picking up 15 hours a week as an financial analyst intern for a large corporation. As you can see, I have a full plate.
That being said I’m not neccesarily happy with where I am now physically. One year out of highschool and after a year of football in college I was in the best shape of my life, about 215-220, low teen body fat, had speed and athletic power. Now I find myself the heaviest I ever was only a month ago 245, all on a 6’ frame.
I’m going to create this log in the hopes of getting back to where I was physically while handling realworld responsibilities. I have a good idea of what I need to do physically (i.e. it is my job to know afterall) and the motiviation is there, I just need something, like collegiate football, to hold me accountable. I am therefore using this log as a starting point.
6’ 238, i’d say about 18% bf, just an estimate, no chuck t’s to confirm
Bench (current max): 315
Deadlift: raw and without grips, 405
40: 5.1 or so (and I’m being generous with myself)
I just got done doing my first workout. I’m also going to keep a food log here as well. I also want to start running (GPP) and sprinting as well so keep an eye out for that and call me on it if you don’t see anything. If you have any comments, etc… this is the place to post them. Any questions, that will do as well, especially if you are an athlete and have training questions, while i’m no pretty boy like cressey ( ) I still know a few things. (Places arm over oly bar to exaggerate bicep size)
This should be fun. I want to be able to post before and after pictures in 8-12 weeks.
