So I’ve been a member of this site for a couple of years, though I’ve only been posting off and on.
I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a beginner, but bodybuilding is not my goal so I’m going to start my log here.
I use to be pretty active but have slacked off lately. I’m going to start this log to keep myself accountable.
My goals are to maintain bodyfat and increase my physical fitness.
I have two phases. One I call a diet phase, which is of course diet, but also includes increases physical fitness. After I get to where I want to be, I will take things a little easier and maintain, hence, the maintenance portion.
I have a workout program that I kind of pulled from a few different sources and smashed together to fit my lifestyle.
The following is what I plan to work up to, by increasing reps day to day:
Monday / Wednesday / Friday (maintenance optional)
Bent leg crunches 4x40
Stomach flutter kicks 4x30
Hanging knee-ups, r/l 3x15
Hanging knee-ups, s 3x15
8-count body builders 3x15
Trunk rotations 3x20
Standard pull-ups 4x15
Wide grip pull-ups 4x15
Side-to-side pull-ups 4x15
Tuesday (optional) / Thursday (optional)
5 minutes x 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 mph
Saturday (diet optional)
6 x 25 / 50 / 75 / 100 yards
I’m going to try to keep my diet flexible, but here’s the guidelines:
Shun sugar / sugar substitute / soy-based products
Dinner Hot meal
Diet Eat one free meal a week
Maintenance Eat one free day a week
