THE WHITE BRICK CHRONICLES
History— trained hard from 17yrs old for a good 10 years. Made good gains as a lanky kid and made it up to 260 and stayed there on a plateau - stayed natty. Did a local show early 90’s but didn’t have the size but learned a lot like I don’t wanna compete ha trained off and on from then on
I’m past my prime at 50 now but still giving it hell in my basement gym. I just love to lift.
I take every November and December off training so I can go kill things and eat them…mainly ducks and deer.
Have the normal arthritis in the neck and bursitis in the joints…had a lotta cortisone shots and a couple steroid eperidurals in my neck. Hell im just normal unless I’m cooking eggs.
January 1, 2020 weigh in at 222. My muscles and joints have had a nice break for 2 months and I’m ready but gonna ease back into things so I don’t jack up any joints…higher reps lower weights and more frequency. Added cardio mid month and have worked up to 30 min a day. 5-6 sensible meals or protein portions daily.
January 31, 2020. Making gains and feeling good. Weigh in at 234. Switching program a bit now to a six day rotation with emphasis on my lagging parts, calves and arms. Also now that body is back in the swing of things we will start upping some weight and hitting fewer reps on major body parts. Will still hit cardio hard but may cut back to 5 days a week…thinking on that one still.
DIET- eat clean 90% of the time but I’m not skeered to drink a few beers and eat some real burgers. (No fast food nothing) Lotta eggs and white brick egg whites, lotta chicken and lotta wild red meat. Tuna n cottage cheese. Greek yogurt.
