I miss my blog! I was re editing this blog title to reflect it's general posts not what's going on now and was reading the very first post I wrote shortly after joining VBBF.
first blog post on 02/04/08.... I've come so far. Thank you everyone here for CHANGING MY LIFE FOREVERRRRRRRR I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH
I feel like posting poundages on the daily and jotting down each individual exercise can be taxing, repetitive and difficult to look through. I will post a short summary once a week of results and noteworthy accomplishments and perhaps sometimes in between weeks if something really exciting happens for me and I wish to share.
Quick Background Info: Have not been in the gym for 1 1/2 years and completely inactive for 8 months. Excessive weight gain from september - december from overeating. In the past have accomplished many feats in the field of being an advanced athlete (won a bb comp, ran 1/2 marathons, cycled 150+ miles at a time, played collegiate tennis, powerlifted for a brief spell successfully, used to be a personal trainer) so I expect muscle memory to be in my favor for producing fantastic and quick results.
January 1st 08, 1st day back. First two weeks will be spent getting acclimated to basic exercises and upping cardiovascular fitness level as much as possible to enhance the resistance training and overall health level.
The Workout: I will perform the same exercises and repeat this cycle 5 times before switching it up. No supersets, drop sets, negatives, working on weaknesses. Just trying to build a solid foundation for future work on growth, strength.
4 sets and twelve repetitions per exercise
There will be no rest in between days or at the end of a cycle unless my body asks for it or something gets in the way.
Day 1: Chest / Calves / Core
Day 2: Upper Back / Forearms
Day 3: Lower Back / Traps / Obliques
Day 4: Shoulders / Calves
Day 5: Arms
Day 6: Legs / Traps / Core
Cardio: Indoor / Outdoor / Machines what have you
The Diet: 100% raw but Less nuts / seeds / gourmet and more juices, fresh produce, seaweeds, algaes, grasses and superfoods. Dieting down and very reduced caloric intake to melt away unnecessary bf but subject to change as by body will gradually wish for more fuel, I suspect.
Starting stats: 198 lbs, 12% bf, very weak and out of shape, basically feel
like a noob. how did this happen!!!
Goal Stats: 170-180lbs and sub 8% bf within 3 month time frame but
weight is only a number so it will all depend and time will tell.
Before pictures taken on January 10th. After pictures will be taken on February 10th and placed in the proper forum shortly and will be taken every two months thereafter and posted.
A thank you in advance for any support and motivation thrown my way. Suggestions and criticism is always welcome!
Where do you get your protein?
But as long as people stay away from our cooler bags with our meals and not ask silly questions, we're all pretty tame
