ULY's Training Log - Beginner

so ive been training since 2007 when i went from 260lbs to 215 lbs, wit very little muscle gain but lots of fat loss. i am starting this log to see if i can make any progress in some muscle gain. and also more fat loss.

height: 5’ 10"
weight: 215lbs
body fat%: 20-30% =(

goals
weight: 175 lbs
body fat: 10-15%

i am setting realistic goals for now but will try to set the bar a bit higher as i progress.

any suggestions or tips are welcomed, as are criticism. thanks!

Been keeping all my training logs to myself, mostly because the weight I can move is light compared to others on the site. But since I’ve abandoned this log, I’ve gone through a short cutting phase followed by two 531 runs. Weight did not change too much but I have gotten stronger and a bit leaner. Still have more to improve.
