    Been lurking here on F&N for quite a bit. Time to finally stop bullshitin' and take care of business.

    STATS: 4/17/07

    Height: 5'10

    Weight: 260

    Age: 34

    BF% too insanely high to even post I will guess high 30s (yes I am a fat fooker)

    Short term goals (less than 1 yr)

    Bench 225
    Squat 300
    DL 350

    Get under 200lbs
    BF down to 15%


    My motivation....sick of being an old fat dude....that and I want to teach my 5yr old early in life the importance of getting and staying fit. :hsd:

    Plan on doing a 5x5 routine to get my strength up and adjust from there. Non lifting days will be intense cardio. I know some have said that cardio isn't all that needed while on a hardcore 5x5, but I feel at my size the cardio is pretty much mandatory.

    Diet will be kept pretty much clean without going insane.
