I've decided that I gather more motivation and hold myself more accountable when I run a log. I turned 53 a few months ago and I want to add about 10 lean pounds to this body frame. I've coined a phrase: "I'd rather have abnormal amounts of muscle and degrade with age to "normal" then have normal amounts of muscle and degrade to decrepit with age".
As of now here are my stats..
Height 5'6". Weight 160 lbs Goal: Bulk to 170 (there will be PH usage here)
Max Lifts Starting (1RM off cycle)
Machine Bench: 235 lbs
Machine Squat: 235
BB Deadlift: 325
Machine Shoulder Press: 125
Target Macros: 225 /250 /65 g p/c/f 900+1000+585 about 2500 cals (will tweak if my waist expands)
I perform workouts on a daily basis in my garage gym. They are generally 1 to 1.5 hours long and utilize combinations of an Ironmaster machine and free-weights:
I train with a HR monitor to time when my HR returns to a point that I can begin the next set. I'm a nerd engineer, what can I say! Really switching up my routine here. Upper chest and abs are lagging behind, will tweak it as I go:
Tuesday: Upper Chest
Saturday: Chest Concentration
Sunday: Upper Back/Triceps
1) Feel free to post anything you'd like to motivate or make me do my best.
2) If my weights for any lift seem "off" it might be due to incorrect form. Don't flame me (PM me instead) as I'm still learning. Lol
