I'm 43, 6' even. I range between 242 and 255... Just got body fat measured with one of those Omnicron or whatever thingies at 22.5%.
My body is fairly battered, but everything works!
I have a rather stressful life. Sleep hygiene is my biggest challenge.
I've had the hardest time getting enough protein. Previously I was lucky to get over 100 grams. I've added a gallon of skim milk a day and now can reliably get over 200 grams. I have a huge fear of carbs due to the insulin resistance. Between stress, lack of sleep, and nutritional difficulties (lack of carbs and protein), I was regularly exceeding my recover-ability...
I am lifting for the first time seriously.
I lift because I enjoy it... I find lifting melts stress for me. I like the results as well...
I hate cardio, except I love riding bicycles.
I wanted to get below 25% BF. That's done, so maybe 20% next.
As few injuries as possible.
Lift several times a week.
Progress in some form.
Symmetry and balance... I've always had lagging parts. (Delts, Pecs, Biceps, Rhomboids). My bench and curls have always sucked!
I have a couple nagging soft tissue issues:
Left heal feels bruised, much worse when cold gets better with use.
Left elbow: Both golfers and tennis elbow. I use a band, and that helps. Lately I've started using lifting gloves and that seems to offer more relief.
I was doing 3 day various splits. I'm doing 4 day upper/lower splits now.
