I ballooned up to 262 pds at 6'1" by the end of December. Decided to start back getting serious with portion control, what I'm eating, and how much I'm exercising. Started on a Couch to 5K app that someone on the old tMB suggested just to help with burning off excess pounds. Been hitting it pretty religiously since I started and with the diet I've lost 8 pounds so far in January. I also had to start back with some kind of weight lifting program. I know if I made it too ambitious or difficult I'd quit soon, so it's pretty damn easy so far. I broke up body areas and opposing muscle groups for each day Monday-Friday with core everyday. I think it's helping a little bit so far. I'm 48 and do not have great genetics so I don't build muscle really fast, and I don't want to stick needles in my leg so it's slow going.

Currently running this:


Have run a few of their programs in the past and just cycle through what I have. They are great programs but take some getting used to if you have not used RPE before. Most of them have exercise selection so you can choose what you want to do to not get bored or if you have limited equipment. They also put out tons of great content if you want to learn more of the science behind what they do. Both of the head guys are MDs and are strong AF.

Oh hell yeah bro. I did the Bridge by those guys a few years ago. Took me to another level in strength and I've never lost that foundation.

They have incredible programming where you can just handle massive volume and your body seems to take it really well

Fucked my knee up a couple of months ago. Thought for sure if I laid off for a while it would fix itself. Apparently that method has a very low success rate. Getting my MRI done in a couple of hours. Gotta get this shit fixed. That fucking platform is calling my name.

Bout to go now. Hitting bench today. Doing a 8,6,4,2...starting at 225 and adding 20lbs each subsequent stage . Maybe a 1 rep if I’m feeling it.

Incline DB - 3x8
Pec Deck - 3x15

Probably wonder around the gym a bit trying to convince myself to just leave.

...then hit some Half ass tricep push & pull downs The I’ll be out of there. Ain’t trying to Kill my entire Friday night. Fuck I’m dreading it already.
