Started working out about 3 or 4 months ago when I decided to give the p90x videos a try, I know they wont hold much stead here amongst the more hard core crowd, but they suited me well for the time and gave me a good introduction to following a consistent exercise routine for a number of Months. I saw some fairly good results on it too. I combined it with some HIIT cardio and after 3 months of so I had leaned down from a very pudgy and very weak 162 lbs to a fairly lean (except for the last 3-4 pounds of fat around my midsection) 144lbs. In terms of strength gains I think it gave me a relatively good base of strength in terms of pull ups, push-ups and general muscle tone. But now my goals have gone from trying to get as lean as possible and as such getting a six-pack to wanting to get more "functional" strength. Because of this, I needed a change and wanted to start lifting actual weights for the first time in my life. My goals now stand at staying relatively lean, maintaining a good level of cardio fitness and trying to be strong like ox! A friend has helped put together a lifting routine, and for the last 2 weeks or so I've been following it and most importantly, enjoying it. This log is where I will detail my workout logs so I can hopefully look back in a few months and feel warm and fuzzy inside over the progress I've made. Another disclaimer; This new lifestyle is one I will attempt to fit around the lifestyle of a somewhat busy and impoverished student, so please bear that in mind!
Anyway, as I've said I've been following a programme for 2 weeks now so I will update the log thus far and continue on from there. If anyone reads this, please don't hesitate to critique and offer advice. It would be very graciously accepted and appreciated!
