    30ís Ramblings

    Figure I’d like to do a log as I go, something to keep me accountable and on track. Maybe get some pointers from you fine folks (and Jin) as we go. As I’ve said in another thread, I’m slightly injured so I need to slow things down a bit. I was plenty happy eating whatever I want and lifting as heavy as I could, hopes of getting stronger. Well right now that’s not on the plate and as I take a step back I realize that I’m really a flabby piece of shit. I felt fine til I got hurt, now I see a very different me. Complete mind ****.

    So I’ve re-evaluated and came up with a short term and long term goal. The short term goal is to drop to 15%ish BF and stay around 245-250. That’s the immediate goal. Secondary goal is to start working on building some legs and a squat.



    Long term, I’d like to do a powerlifting meet someday. I’ve got my sites set on age 45, should be masters by then, at 242. I’ve set a goal of totaling 1500 by then. If I wasn’t hurt, I could probably squeak out a 400lb bench, 600ish dead, and zero squat (135?). I’d like to press 400, pull 600 and squat 500 by then. I know these numbers are nothing compared to most of you but that’s where I hope to be.

    So Snake has been kind enough to help out and dieting starts now. Cardio starts now. I’ll lift what I can as I can. I will update as much as I can.
    Starting stats-41 years old, 274lbs at 6’4. Guesstimating 25% BF, maybe more. I’ve got to take some measurements to track progress, probably tonight. Anyway, follow along if you want.

    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.
    Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.

    Pretty much just leave me alone.

    You don’t look fat in your AV. I doubt you are 25%.

    In for the log.

    Subbed brother! We are close to the same size. I'm a bit taller and weigh about 15 pounds less. I'll be 45 next month but I'm leaning towards doing a PL meet one day as well. Stay focused and humble! You are going to do great.

    You can do this, 30. Focus on one day at a time, one workout at a time!

    I feel pretty damn fat! We will see what the next couple of months bring. I’m not doing any crazy diet or anything, just trying to keep it simple (thank you snake).
