Hello IM Forum Members!
Went ahead and registered after "googling" for different info and kept winding up here. So figured I might as well join the fun instead of just getting some info and leaving.
Anyway, I started working out again after a good 10 year run of partying, eating crap, smokin, and just being un-healthy in general.
It's been a little over a month now since I've quit smoking and started my regimen. I am determined to stay with it, have lost about 15 pounds since.
Currentlly I am weighing in at 201 lbs, 5' 11", 32 yrs young and am working out 4 days a week.
Mon, Tue, Wed (off), Thur, Fri, Sat(off),Sun(off). I am a member of L.A. Fitness in San Marcos, CA.
I started MRM creatine monohydrate, on my 3rd day of that now. Decided to skip the "loading phase" and am just taking 5g in water right after my work out with a piece of white bread with honey on it for the "high gi" carbs. Read that on Bodybuilding.com - Chris Zaino - All Carbs Are NOT Created Equal!
Been taking "MRM whey pumped" protein powder in water, 2 scoops to 7 oz. water for the last month now. I'm up to taking 2-3 of these a day. One in the morning, one pre-workout and one post-workout. Mostly I workout at 5 am so I'll only have 2 since I'm combining the first one.
I also take a multi-vitamin everyday "Mens Formula One-a-DAy".
I've been having good success with my diet recentlly and am learning more about what to eat and when. Basically I am focusing on High-Protein and low-carb (except the good ones when necessary). Drinking lots of water and just recentlly POM juice that I picked up today for right after my work out.
I am very serious about my commitment I've made and am looking forward to learning more from the members of this forum. My goals are to gain strength, endurance and muscle-mass while losing body fat.
Excuse my exhausted first post and thank you in advance for all the help
