    After 3.5 years of zero training/excercising I am in possibly the worst physical condition of my life :wtc:. Went to the gym this morning and came to terms with just how badly I had let myself go, I got fucking winded after 7 minutes of cardio at 80% and my thighs were visibly trembling when I tried doing squats without weight. To top it off, my push ups weren't even half of my OT post per day count :o. I thought I was just gonna hop in there 3 times a week and follow the christophers routine, in the sticky, then come out all broly in July, but it looks like I've got alot more work ahead... I'm gonna have to spend some time getting my breathing and strenght together before I can get serious with a building routine that I can stick to. Anyway this is my last weekend of pure sloth and laziness, starting Monday I'm back to giving 110%.

    Unrelated Post Script: I actually managed to finish a full serving of ON Vanilla whey while typing this. It still tastes like absolute crap, but I just can't work 180 grams of protien a day on natural food without spending the whole day in the kitchen.

    I think I did.. just not at full throttle.. as I said before I'm in crap condition and don't wanna be sidelined before the 1st quarter. I'll be spending the weekend trying to get this diet down.

    Oh, I didn't realize that you had done that this morning. My reading skills aren't that great.

    Good luck in your quest. The exercise part is the easiest, it's the diet that is hard getting adjusted to

    Good luck, was the same for me when I started a few months ago. You'll get used to it though. Hardest part for me was getting over the "everyone will think I suck" complex, i've found nobody honestly gives a shit.

    The upside to being in horrible shape is that you'll start to see big gains pretty quickly. That is motivating as hell!!!

    Good luck.

    As for the natural protein source dilemma, grill up a bunch of chicken and refridgerate OR buy Pilgrim's Pride pre-cooked chicken breasts. They are the best tasting microwavable chicken breasts I've had, and I've gone through several brands.

    good luck man. i was the same way. make sure you stretch/warmup before exercises btw. a lot of beginners don't do that.
