It’s time to finally get serious about lifting now that I have my ducks in a row.
I’ve been a lurker on this forum for some time and decided it’s time to get actually serious for once in my life about lifting weights.
I’m a 32 year old married working professional that has always been active, but never really hit the weight room. I know how crazy commercial gyms can be, so I decided to buy a few bits of equipment to help me on this road.
360lbs worth of weights
dip & pull up tower
85lb, 100lb dumbbell
I see everyone that is serious has a log of some sort whether it’s paper and pen or on this site. I am creating this log to hold myself accountable.
This is the start of my journey.
I will be running “The Morning Star” from the 5/3/1 Forever book.
