Cliff notes version of what got me here today…
I was dedicated to training 5 days a week before I took a job that made me move to Colorado. Hours were long and after a while got back into training again. Then took another job that was 50% travel. Then my wife got pregnant and we both gained weight. She lost it and I didn’t(still traveling as well).
2nd baby comes and of course I gained more weight…
After a few doc visits and a rising cholesterol number. Finally, mentally committed to changing my lifestyle. Over the last few months I had cut out many bad habits and now committed to making permanent choices for better health.
Protein Shake with Banana first thing.
Lowfat sandwich for lunch
Gym late afternoon with a ABB Ripped fuel Drink
Another Protein shake
Chicken and Veggies type of Dinner
Multi-vitamin daily and Anabolic Pump before meals.
I re-read the sticky in the Beginners area and nothing struck me as “glaring” that I was doing wrong.
I am going seven days a week, with every day ending with 20-25 minutes of Cardio, however not weight training everyday.
Each set I do for whatever muscle group has 12-15 reps as I am just slowly getting back into training again.
The reason for doing Cardio daily is I want to lose 20lbs by Thanksgiving. More than enough time I think.
I am sore daily, but I it is a “good” sore IMO…
I paid for a trainer and was not impressed by his wealth of knowledge, so I will be asking politely for a different one since I have 3 sessions left.
I know there will be questions and I am sure some flaming of which I deserve for a BF of 28%.
I am challenged by the fact that my job requires me to travel frequently so the luxury of a consistent training routine will be difficult but I will persevere in the end.
I am looking at adding Glutamin with the above mentioned but based on my intensity I am sure the veterans can provide intelligent suggestions on additional supps.
