klaatus journey

in the past 5ish months Ive been stripping the fat to get to a good foundation level. today was day 1 of building my self back up the proper way, Ive done the gym thing twice before but never got anywhere through being distracted by the razzle dazzle of the likes of isolation moves and supplements. this time is different, im just eating clean and often and starting strong-lifts 5x5.

squats
20kg
bench
20kg
bent over row
30kg

was all pretty easy as expected but i was mainly concentrating on form, really stoked to get back there on Wednesday.

12/12/12
day two of strong lifts 5x5

squats
22.5kg
overhead press
20kg
deadlifts
40kg

squats are still super easy, dead lifts were fun too, i can see im going to struggle with overheads soon but thats expected.

ive worked out my nutrition too, at the minute its an average of 2700 cals, 20% protein, 60% carbs and 20% fat, 143g protein, id rather err on the side of caution and eat more if im not gaining enough rather than ruin all the fat loss ive done just for a little extra muscle.

Good luck in your journey, already looks like you are off to a solid start.

Look forward to seeing how you progress ~ you're absolutely correct in thinking you should be focusing on the basic big compound movements. Think of the isolation movements as the icing on the cake part, makes things more complete but not essential.
