    I'm 25, goin on 26 this week. I used to be a pretty hardcore lifter in high school, and a little after. Well, i ended up married w/3 kids and completely out of shape. I'm not getting any younger, so i'm goin to start training again. I have a good bit of weight lifting equipment at the house, and have a very nice place to run right outside my backyard. I'm goin to try to jog 5 times a week, and lift 3.

    I will hopefully progress from there. I have a big build, but just some fat has ruined my look. I will post pics later, and i will surely be in F&N more often. My major thing is eating. I eat complete shit and really need to get back to the wonderful world of chicken breast, tuna, and more water!!!

    Thanks for any support guys!!!:wavey:


    Edit: As of this morning, i weigh 263lbs <which i thought was under 250lbs> and i'm 6'tall

    Well, i just got back from my first run. Shins hurt FTL. Anyways, i ran about 1/2 mile and walked about 3/4 of a mile. Not bad for the first day, but man do my legs hurt. Sitting at a desk or on a couch for so long really did me in.

    Any suggestions of my weight routine??? I want to hit everything, but not to hardcore until i get used to the feeling again.

    I wonder what the OTF&N wall of shame would look like if you took every ambitious go-getter that fizzled out after a month :dunno:

    Easy there captain. I used to be into lifting for about 4-5 year of my life. I just got into a training slump. I got married, had kids, and worried more about working extra hours instead of caring about my body.

    go into the archives and open Christophers thread about what built him a base. its a very good 3-day routine that'll get you back in the game.

    you should start a log and read some of the stickies/the archives, too
