Newer "Old Guy" saying hello!

  1. Newer "Old Guy" saying hello!


    I have been lurking for years and have finally found the desire to get back into weights. I use to be involved in bodybuilding back in the early to mid 80's. I never competed...but I worked out with Corrie Everson once in awhile back then. I had friends that competed and I guess I was their personal motivational coach.

    Well, now I am 45 and trying to get back into the grind. It has been 6 months now and I cannot believe the gains and pains. I look better now (BIgger and more definition.) than I did in the 80's...Yet, my body fat in greater. I don't get it...but I am not complaining! Some body parts are always sore and golfers elbow is getting me on my left arm. (Bicep curls are difficult to perform.) Other then that I am happy to say that I have the drive back after 26 years. It feels good!

    I am not really into any kind of diet. (Although I should. 5'11 250) I am taking 8 ounces of "ON" whey protein before and after my workouts and that is it. I am also consuming more proteins during the day too. Would anyone have any advice on other supplements I should be taking?

    I should add that my last physical I found out (After a blood test.) that I have a "Fatty Liver".

    I love this site.It is a great resource of info.

  3. Thanks DreamWeaver. You are correct. I am finding that hurdle to be the toughest of all.

  4. Glad you're gonna hang out with us bro....welcome. Dream is right. When I started working my diet is when things started to change. Went from 214 to 170. Now I'm working on putting "quality" weight back. Enjoy the forums friend....good company here.

  5. welcome to AM, and good on you for getting stuck into the iron
