Today is my 32nd birthday. I’d like to say I feel great about that, however, there’s this sinking feeling in my stomach that I’ve half-assed it over 32 years. In fact there’s not a single long-term accomplishment I can say I gave it my all.
That changes now. Starting with my training. My goals can be generally summed up as this: by this time next year I would like to be roughly the same body weight (214 lbs), but lean, strong, and well- not half-assed, but BAD-ASSED. I am neither very strong, very big, or very lean as you will see. I love the feeling of over-eating and drinking to excess-but not the result.
Long term goal number 1: Get as lean as possible while increasing strength and improving health
Long term goal number 2: Improve conditioning to play more sports and be a competitive weekend-warrior
Long term goal number 3: Slowly add mass with as clean a diet as possible to at least 214 pounds
I am compiling pics, measurements, and testing baseline maxes for the big lifts as a starting point. Will also be throwing together an initial program by tomorrow. My hope for this log is that it helps not only me but other “average wussies” out there get their shit together.
