I got my new diet (finally) on track yesterday, so I figured I'd start a training log.

After years of bouncing back-and-forth between powerlifting and recreational bodybuilding, I've set my sights on getting back into promotional work (which I did when I was younger).

Hence, I've started a 2-a-day training split—hitting diet and cardio especially hard.

My stats:
Age: 28
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 220
Years Lifting: 13
Goal: 10% bodyfat

My training split:
MONDAY:
AM: 45 min. Stairmill
PM: Chest

TUESDAY:
AM: 45 min. Stairmill
PM: Back

WEDNESDAY:
AM: 45 min. Stairmill
PM: Shoulders

THURSDAY:
AM: 45 min. Stairmill
PM: Arms

FRIDAY:
AM: 45 min. Stairmill

SATURDAY:
PM: Legs

This is my "before pic" from a hike I went on with one of my Church Sisters on Saturday morning.

The angle and my total lack of posture/sucking in my gut unintentionally produced a pre-transformation pic.

The good news: It's only up from here! Haha.

I really pushed the pace of the workout by limiting my rest to only 60 seconds between sets, which allowed me to get the workout in ~45 minutes.
