    Fighting to live

    What up IM! It?s been a while since I?ve been on here and am excited to be back. I did an online journal here years ago and made some great progress but stopped lifting as life took its toll. Long story short I?m overweight and tired all the time so I decided it was time to do something about it. I feel as if I?ve been letting my God, family, employer, and boxing club down due to my lack of taking care of myself. I?m here seeking encouragement and accountability in hopes of getting this train going again.

    About me:

    Age 33
    Current weight 220lbs
    Height 5?6?

    Married to a beautiful woman and have 4 amazing daughters

    I own and operate Dungeon Boxing Club

    Hope to have some of you join me on this journey!

    Welcome back brother.. It sucks when you're middle aged.. and realized you got chubby when you should have been getting shredded..

    Just makes it all that much sweeter when you get things back under control.. and capture life back.

    You'll never be young again, but that don't mean you can't look and feel good.

    Was laying in bed, all 225lbs of me doing nothing watching YouTube, something I’ve been doing a lot of lately..smh. Got up thinking I’m sick of this, finally got my ass in the garage..

    Bench Press
    4 sets of 8 @ 135lbs

    Squats
    4 sets of 8 @ 135lbs

    Deadlifts
    4 sets of 8 @ 185lbs

    Db Shoulder press
    4 sets of 8 @ 40lbs

    No real structure for this workout I just wanted to get out and do something and boy do I feel good. Only thing I really wanted to accomplish today was keep my rest periods to a minute max which I did. Super gassed!
