    Countdown to the big 30






    Alrighty a new Journal... I will try to stick with this the best that I can. Anyway just wanna be doing a little better with improving myself before my 30th birthday. I have left almost 3 months to prep for the results.

    I have been very lack with my work out routine and diet for the past 9 months. So now is the time to clean them up some what.

    I am weighing in at 215lbs. would like to be at 200-205lbs

    Supps right now are just Fish oil, Multi, and Protein Powder. However I will be incorporating DS Melting point, AMP, Basic cuts, and Lipo-Ultra.

    Training during the initial phase will be full body 3 time/per week with 2 cardio (Bike) sessions per week. Plus one Hockey Game, and when the season is over Ball Hockey.

    Couple new things in my life. Just started a new Job a few weeks ago, so I am not sure how available I will be for updates yet. And well we (Wife and I) are expecting our second child. She is 14 weeks and due in Sept. We are pretty Excited.

    So time to get things started. My main focus will be cleaning up my diet, but I will be more concerned with that after I return from Vancouver the beginning of April.

    Any questions or comments are welcome.

    Where are you Iain!!!! Let me know how you like the MP. Good luck and I'll be here
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    what is your routine going to look like?

    Maybe you should base it off of 2 different days (day A and day B) that way, if you are pressed for time due to the new job or pregnant wife, you can get in there and only train 2 times that week and still get everything done without having to worry about missing a day which you would if you had a day 3.

    like:

    mon- workout A
    tues- bike
    wed- workout B
    thurs- off
    fri- workout (A) or off if you don't have time
    sat- bike (or workout A if you missed it on friday)
    sun- off
    mon- workout B (if you got to perform workout A at the end of the week or start this week with workout A again and move on).....etc....

    Circuit type supersets can work really well for decreasing the time in the gym, increasing work capacity, and increasing caloric expenditure. Sometime like lower/upper/core cirtuit.

    circuit 1
    squat
    chin up
    plank
    rest 60-90sec

    circuit 2
    RDL
    overhead DB press
    crunches
    rest 60-90sec

    stretch and go home.

    Hey P,

    Yeah I don't see having any problems fitting in my workouts. Plan was Mon, Wed, Fri/Sat (depending on time)

    A/B sessions, that I basically took from the retard training program thread. Figured it would be a good place to start since I have been so inconsitent over the past while. Plan was to shorten RI's on a weekly basis. Ideally I would like to get into a circuit pattern, but don't think my conditioning is up to par.

    Hockey season is over now... lost in the final 2 games to none. So ball hockey will be Tuesday evenings on a full rink indoors that gets stupidly hot during the summer.

    *Ahem* C'mon Iain....post! So are you going with that A B workout you posted? What's the volume going to be like? I'm thinking of doing something similar. We should do the same thing.

    Yep A/B full body workouts for about 4 weeks, initially with higher reps 10-15 working down the RI after each cycle.

    You will see a workout in here tonite. Will I post weights? depends if my ego can handle showing the public the light weights I will be throwing around.

    What are you trying to acheive?

    Right now my main goal is consistency. Actually going to the gym when I plan to. Eventually I'd like to trim down a bit again, get rid of the love handles! Have you started the MP yet?

    I'll get on board with A/B full body w/o's. What's the RI's to start with? How many sets of each exercise? I think I'll try and workout Mon, Wed and Saturday.

    Yeah I am basically the same viewpoint you are.
    Starting MP after the easter weekend.
    I am starting with 60 sec RI's ( might be a little ambitious) 3 sets Probably same days as you. However I have Ball Hockey Tuesday nights and want to fit in some more cardio.

    Alright, cool. I'll start the program on Saturday morning. I want to fit in more cardio as well. I'm thinking maybe 3 mornings a week for 45min. But I don't want to overcommit myself and set myself up to fail right away LOL.

    I plan to "clean" everything up. Not perfect but better than it is now. Back to good carbs and only in the morning. A lot of chicken and fish (though not cooked the healthiest ) What about you?

    Still playing around with things. But for the most part it will be pretty clean. My 30th b-day is just over 2 months away, and that is my goal.
