First I’ll introduce “Me”, My Name is Greg. I’m 37 years old. Still married to my high school sweetheart, 19 years in May, and the proud father of two wonderful children. Although my son, who just turned 18 in October, would probably prefer that I don’t refer to him as a child.
I don’t have near as many hours/months/years training as a lot of the people in this forum but I hope to make up for that with my absolute desire for knowledge. I’ve already learned so much reading all of the posts here (most of them two or three times) and the videos are priceless. It’s so much easier to understand “good form” and “Full ROM” with a visual aid.
My training history consists of a couple years 2005-2007 where I would go to the gym and just lift heavy things. No program, just eat everything in sight, take every Biotest supplement on the market and lift. Of course I made what I thought were great gains 165# in 2005 to 208# in about a year. Unfortunately that was gone and back to 172# within about 5 months of not working out.
“Myself” is that 175# skinny weak guy that I saw in the mirror a few months ago. We won’t get into him that much since Iâ??m not hanging out with him anymore.
My training goals are simple for now…GET STRONGER…PERIOD
I’m writing my own programs to start. 5/3/1 may be in the future…seems to be “THE” program here.
I started back lifting about two months ago so I’ve already made up for some of the lost time (that muscle memory thing sure is great). Currently 193# and climbing. The Following post will be my first week of the new program. Kind of a 5x5 thing I guess.
Thanks in advance to anyone who checks in and has advice to offer.
