Wanted to start a workout log for anyone that's interested in following along. I'm following ice cream fitness 5x5 novice routine- will end by December 2013. Link provided: h t t p://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=148036063
Background: on/off in gym for years without any knowledge of training and nutrition. Started training again in April 2012 with a little more knowledge of the iron game. Now I want to pack on some muscle while minimizing fat. Workout is gonna be 3 days/ week, no cardio at the moment. Hopefully, I'm able to motivate some people out there that is in the same boat as I am. Oh, btw I am a night shift worker who does 3, 12 hour shifts. I train after I get off of work, so sometimes energy level may not be there.
