I’m a long time lurker, and just recently began to post here. I’m from the Netherlands and I am 23 years old. I have been a prettygood soccer player a few years ago, however never made it to the pro’s. Quit when I was 18 and now 5 (college) years later I am 15% bodyfat and about 80 kilo’s (175 pounds?)
I have been “working out” some time in my life, yet never on a decent program. However I have always been squatting and deadlifting and been reading this site for ages so I am not exactly a newb, yet also no athlete.
I chose the West Side for Skinny Bastards program, because it incorporates sprint/interval training with heavy lifting, and I like to dive in with all I have, thanks to Alpha’s Log here.
I do three days lifting with 3 energy system works. Let’s hope there is still some soccer endurance in me otherwise I will be dead by next week.
Nutrition wise I aim for a low carb approach with carbs before the lifting days (not before the sprinting) and then one big ass carb rich meal in the weekends. The only problem might lie in the fact that I still will go out sometimes (I AM a student after all) but I will limit the damage.
I created this log for my own accountability, although it would be nice if there would be people that would actually follow this log. I will try to post the routine and numbers and diet on here everyday. If there are any questions, feel free to ask. I will be logging daily.
Happy lifting everybody!
