Lots of injuries over the years. One after another. I've done this so many times I can't count anymore. WTF though, let's give it another run. I went through that 58 page thread about the basic lifting workout that one big huge guy does. I got through about 24 pages of it and said fuck it, I'm just going to print that shit out and go to the gym and do it. Today I did the Legs workout. 4 sets leg ext 10-15reps 50x15, 50x15, 70x15, 90x12 4 sets squat 6-10 reps 135x15, 135x15, 135x15, 135x10 3 sets leg press 10-12 reps 100x12, 140x12, 180x12 4 sets leg curl 10-12reps 90x15, 110x12, 120x15, 130x10 3 set db stiff legged or walking lunges 5x80 and then complete leg failure. Couldn't walk anymore. Took me 20 minutes to walk to the door of the gym and down the stairs, holding on to the railing and wobbling. Came home and threw a pound and a half of london broil on the grill. I'll eat some in a minute and keep the rest for beef sammiches with babycakes tonight. Goals: 1. Lift the routine I described 4 days a week, and dial it in over the course of the first month. 2. HIIT to burn fat 4x/week (or more, depends on how often I can do it for maximum results 3. Clean up my diet, control portion size, establish 6x small meals per day of clean food. 4. Spend more time out with my old lady and less on the computer. Swing dancing 1x per week whenever we can. That counts for cardio, right? 5. Cut out the alcohol. 6. Reevaluate progress in 60 days and update plan.
