Been lurking for a couple of months now and just wanted to post up and say thank you for all the advice I've been taking from this site. I'm 41 176lbs and started working out in mid January and have been really enjoying it. I'm seeing some progress in my physique and I keep a spreadsheet of my workouts and really see progress there with the numbers continuing to rise, whether I'm adding weight or just an increase in reps.
This is the first time I've lifted weights except for a short stint in my 20's when I had a used bench in my backyard, and that only lasted for about a month. Other than that, I've done some martial arts, 3 times and was injured and stopped each time (sprained ankle, fractured bone in foot). So my level of exercise was nothing until now.
I'm following a plan I got from another site which is a 3 day/week plan. Bis/Back, Legs and Chest/Tris. I'm not following a nutrition plan, but have been eating much better than I used to, and including more oats, veggies etc. along with whey and some other supps.
Anyhow, this seems like a good group so I wanted to introduce myself. I look forward to learning more with/from you all.
