Well ok, I am not going to be on the cover of Men's Health, but that doesn't mean i can't achieve a physique similar to a few of the lads they sport on their covers.
Currently weigh 196lbs and i am 6foot 1in with about 16% BF.
The goal is to drop the BF% to around 8-10% while maintaining as much weight as i can. It may very well be that i drop some weight first, then bulk, only to cut once more.
I am back to lifting weights for the first time in years, going to give it some serious effort this time. Still going to pound out some cardio and my diet i think is in great shape, now that Bradley has had a chance to steer me in the right direction
Tomorrow is day one, of the weight part. Using WBB #1 to get myself going. Following an ab routine from a book on ABs, (so many different ab exercises in there, all with diagrams etc) its tittled "legendary ABs" and its a 9 month routine to creating a washboard and a book on general health and fitness too.
I think for the first time i truly understand what it takes to transform the body in to a lean mean (fill in your word here) machine.
I hope that when i hit some speedbumps in my routines you guys will be there to help me through the tough times while also providing encouragement through the good times.
My biggest concern is sleep. I don't get 8 hours a day, more like 5.5-6 and i don't even have kids or a crazy lifestyle anymore. I just don't seem to sleep well. Anyone with any rememdies for sleep, that would be appreciated. May have to try reading a bit to calm down before i hit the pillow.
