Matt's Log


#1

Starting this log to keep me accountable. Ive been following WS4SB three day template for the past 4 weeks, starting very light, to get back into the swing of things after nearly two years off from lifting.

I've decided to go with four days of lifting a week with some sprinting thrown in. Planning on following this for 5 weeks, after that I will know exactly where my strength and conditioning is and I will be able to set some goals and reassess my training.

I will be shooting for 3000-3500 calories per day.

28 years old.
As of Monday morning: 198.7 lbs with 18.9% body fat. Going to retest after the 5 weeks.
