Thought I'll do a journal so I can track my progress through the months.
Here are some basic facts
Weight: 19 and 1/2 stones (273 lbs) - Most of the weight goes to thighs area.
Height - 6'0"
Aims: My main aim is that I'm going to be starting A.football in a couple of weeks so I want to be prepared in terms of stamina,fitness and strength. I'm going to try and get the position of Linebacker or Tight End (if that makes a difference to any body). I also want to get more speedy. Part of me wants to gain muscles, but I think the sensible option would be to lose the fat and then worry about the bulk part later.
Other exercise I do: Yoga on Fridays
Equipment available at work
Dumbbells/Barbells of various weights
Leg extension bench
Chest press bench
Lat pull down machine
Think I saw couple of weights with cord through the middle (I assume to make forearms,wrists stronger)
I've been looking at the P/RR/S program and it looks good, but I'm always open to other suggestions and willing to learn.
I'm looking at my diet and trying to improve it.
Previously at work, used to have tons of snacks and coffee but done cold turkey on those and have lasted 2 weeks without it. Instead of a sandwich at home, I have oatmeal and green tea for breakfast. But like I said, working on the diet.
Tried circuit training yesterday, died halfway through it and couldn't catch my breath.
Anyway...I hope to become a permanent fixture here and I've rambled on a bit too much
