So about 9 years ago I was 240 lbs then I blew my right knee. I got out of the Corps and got depressed, eventually had knee surgery and life went on. I got myself a BS degree and a Job. During the application process I had to submit a full body photo, Holy shit I was still 240 but not the 240 I once was. so I stopped drinking soda and eating every in sight.
I switched jobs and now work as a wellness Instructor(Drill Instructor) for troubled youth. I have to lead PT (Physical Training) for the “kids” 3-4 days per week so I have slimmed down to a mediocre 210-215 but I’m stuck. I cant get any lower and I’m in hillbilly hell South Dakota with the only quality gym about 1 hour away. work has a gym with junk that have been donated.
back in the day my gym partner was an amateur body builder when we trained he would lead and I would follow, he told me, lift this much, that many times and I did, now I got no partner no program. I have the drive and dedication to do it I just need a program. I was/am a good soldier I follow orders but with out a program I’m lost. If anybody knows a link to a program or something that will help me set up a program I would appreciate it.
Mostly I need help in the weight and reps and how to effectively group the lifts. I’m looking for functional strength and muscle endurance, size is cool and all but not my main goal.
Thanks for enduring my ranting and rambling.
