There are others that have their blogs, or accountability threads and such, I like to talk with them but sometimes I feel that I'm hijacking or diverting the thread.
So I'm going to start my own where I can talk rant etc. about my lifting and hopefully it will make me feel more accountable and keep me going.
I say, in the title, "RAW power" because it's MY BELIEF that if you can't lift it in shorts and a tee shirt then you can't lift it. That's the way I lift, and like I said it's my personal belief. I don't do steroids, and I gave up DHEA so nobody can say I do, which amazes me, but anyway. I do take a multi-vitamin pack daily, have for years, and use no pre-workout drinks and such. I'm trying to keep it as raw as possible without lifting nekid
So, for my opening... I'm off to a slow start this year, work and such has kept me away from the gym for the last month or so, and today, hopefully, will be my start back at some steady lifting.
From time to time I like to pick a particular lift and drive it up to previous, or record levels. That's tough for us older guys, but it is motivating and gives me a goal to work towards.
My lift for now will be Incline bench. My best ever, I was 28 then, was 425X2, so my goal now is 400X1. Last week I made my first, attempt at getting back and did an easy 275X5. I'm getting back to the gym today and will see where it goes.
I'm going to follow the traditional Chest/Back, Arms/Shoulders, Legs routine.
Sorry, forgot to add : I'm 56 years old, body weight of 240 lbs, 5' 10" and a 36" waist.
Body fat...I honestly have no idea, I can see some abs, but they're not sharp.
Any thoughts, ideas, etc., are appreciated.
