Not an excuse just a fact, 2009 I had shoulder surgery god what a long recovery. finally got back to work and back to the gym, and got into a car wreck. I cracked my sternum back out of the gym.
Problem is I got lazy during the injuries ate like crap and quit caring. Somehow got it in my head that I would never be able to lift again. I didn’t even try in 2010 and now i’m starting to look like something I never wanted to be. Fat.
Jan of 2011 I stepped back into the gym, I lost 20 pounds in 30 days. Problem is this I have had a back fusion in 2002, shoulder surgery 2009, bursitis in the other shoulder. arthritis in my knees back and shoulder now. So since January I lift a week or two and take a week or two off because of my shoulders mostly. I AM SICK OF THIS. Just got turned on to MSM with glucosamine and I gotta say I think its making a differnce. Just watched the mobility videos and I’m going to start doing that as well.
I am sitting at 280 currently, around 21% I’m 6’2 My goal for now is to get back to 247 lbs. With new goals to come. Mostly that someday I want to be a healthy active 70 year old, and I know I got to get on that road NOW!
I have been pouring over info on this site and intend to use what I learn.
This is what a work out week usually looks like for me
Day one chest and shoulders
Day two Bi and Tri
Day three back and abs
day 4 off
day 5 legs
day 6 and 7 off
I am also doing 30 to 40 min of speed walking on the treadmill after each workout, but nothing on my days off, which I intend to change this week. I am eating clean at regular times.
I am looking at 37 years old this August, I really want my health back. A side note as well I have quit chewing for 3 weeks now, and never want to go back to that either.
If God forbid I am injured again, I will eat clean during the injury, no more laziness there.
This past week was relatively pain free and I’m feeling good, I am going by the Mantra “never too late”
Advice is appreciated.
