Two months progress

#1 Postby christian » Wed Oct 05, 2011 12:06 am

I'm so glad I found this web-site as I have been vegetarian/lifting weights for about 20 years. It's been a challenge finding others with same interests/challenges.

Anyway, I've just started lifting weights more seriously again over the last two months. I have been doing 3-4 days cardio for half hour (riding bike or rowing on concept 2 machine) and 3 days of "abbreviated" weights (each week progressively increasing bench/deadlift/squats).

My goals are:

1) Improve cholesterol - Numbers are fairly good on low dosage of lipitor, but I am trying to get completely off the drug. Main concern is increasing HDL (at 46) and keeping LDL down (at 98).

2) Increase definition with focus on abs - According to my body scale, I'm at 20% body fat, so I think I need to lose some of the fat to do this. In addition to cardio, I've been doing about 2 minutes plank exercises in the morning as well to focus on abs/core.

3) Gain muscle - I'm 6'2", and 185 pounds so could use some more weight, though this goal somewhat conflicts with goal 2 above. Until recently any weight training I did was upper body, so I've been more focused on squats/deadlifts to strengthen the lower body.

Any advice/feedback is welcome.

Just wondering - How do you judge progress without a before picture?!

OP: Welcome and good luck!
