I was wondering, is an online coach / trainer interesting, did you use it, can it be helpful for beginners, is it a big waste of $$ ?
So, I tried to start Starting Strength program, (you can find the training logs). Sadly, I got sick in the process of my first part, getting a lung virus, and had to stop some weeks ago. I am just recovering now and think I would be good to go soon.
My goal is to get leaner and bigger, basically, and stronger. I have always been the scrawny kid and now I am 30 and it will be too late after to build mass.
I got quite good results, lifted more than ever, but started to get a lot of knee, back and shoulder pain. However I have an issue. Planning. And also technique. I have a job where I have to plan on a day-to-day basis. I travel a lot and can be called the day before. (Yeah it sucks but it pays the rent). Diet is also an issue.
The coach at my gym, in France, sucks. They will not coach me and I don’t like them. But it s the only gym with a squat rack in miles and I live in a flat.
