Found this site while checking out menshealth forums. Was looking for motivation to get back in shape and get back on the weights. After researching, I feel like I knew nothing before.
Here's a brief bio on myself and my current workout routine.
29 y/o, 6'2" 220lbs Average build. Been lifting since early high school, off and on. Best shape was probably 19 y/o 185lbs.
Anyone trying to get back in the swing of things. From late may to june 30 I did a biggest loser contest at my wifes work; lost 25lbs in 6 weeks; some muscle. Tried total body workouts as a change.
Now that the contest is over, i don't want to lose weight as fast, but want to build strength and reduce body fat; specifically my waist.
Here's an my current routine - any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Monday - Push
Calve Raises 3x10-12
Tuesday - Pull
Biceps 3x8, 1x12
Weds - Cardio
4.5 miles, walk 3 minutes, run 37 minutes, walk 5

Diet is clean eating, white meat, fish, occasional steak, veggies, nuts, fruits, water,
Pre-workout shake (just bought this stuff called pump fuel may be a waste, meant to take it back but didnt, so im trying it. Has that new form for creatine, plus some other stuff similiar to NO2

Took some before shots and keeping a journal of my sets and weights to track progress.
