I'm two workouts in to the HCT-12 so far and I like the format. It's been 2 years since I've done any lifting and about 5 since I've done any really serious lifting. I was never a real beast, 285lbs on the bench and 400lbs on the squats are the most I've ever put up.
Starting out right now I'm 6'1" and 89kilos (196lbs), I'm not fat and I'm not skinny or in shape by any means. My goal is to be fit at 100 kilos (220lbs) give or take.
I've never taken the nutrition as seriously as the lifting, in addition to HCT-12 I'm going to try to be more careful about what I eat and when this time.
I live in Chile so that really affects things, for example a 4lb tub of generic protein is $80USD. Creatine isn't cheap either but not nearly as bad. The upside is local food is cheap. Especially fruits and vegetables, for example lemons are about 12 cents a pound. Also powdered milk is dirt cheap. I might have to get creative.
I welcome any advice and critique, I'm serious but I'm not trying to compete or devote my life to this, it's a hobby for me and only a competition against myself.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
