Hello all, heres my story.
Well I'm semi newcomer to the lifting,and been reading T-Nation for about a half a year.
I am 25yrs old
6ft even, 310lbs
about 120lbs of fat on me.
In the begining of 2002 I was 280lbs, Which was when I began workingout dieting and trying to eat healthy. In first 4months i lost 60 lbs, then lost another 20 in the next 3-4 months. I usually had a hr weight lifting session followed by 40 min of cardio. wIt was very time consuming but it worked, but I dont think i gained hardly any muscle.
I droped my workouts down to 3 times a week for to just keep in shape so i didnt gain it all back. I started hurting in my front shoulder, and left knee after a while and just ignored it. After about a year and a half after I began this program and several months of hurting I went to Physical Therapy. I had a muscle unbalance with my infra spinator*(spelling), and my IP band on my left leg was pulling on my knee along with my glutious medius*(spelling again). While i was in PT for 4 months they suspended my workouts and cardio. In this time I became lazy, fell out of my goal to stay fit.
Now fast forward to today, fat and out of shape.
New day, new goals.
I would like to get back into shape, and gain strength and muscle, get down to somewhere around 200ish with 10% bodyfat.
I was thinking T-Ddawg diet, but i need to make sure i strenghten my core, because i have developed quite a slouch, and my back is sore alot. I was looking towards low impact cardio's till i lose alot of weight.
I am gonna order some Surge, Low-Carb Grow!, and HOT-ROX.
1. whats a good program or exercises to ease back into it.
2. whats some alternative exercises for pull ups, and dips becausewith my weight i cant do a sufficient of either, if any.
Well i would appreciate any sugestions, or comments, and i will fill in any unanswere questions ya have for me. thanks ahead of time
