    Restarting


    Well I used to be in excellent shape. Was a paratrooper in the us army. Then got hurt. Then got out. Then had a child. Now I'm a fat turd lol. With the advice and motivation of a close friend I'm getting the gain train back in track. At 5'8" x roughly 200 lbs , and 23-25% body fat I'm gonna log my diet , routine , and all various forms of progress. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. More to come...

    If your just getting back to the gym my advice would be to go easy the first 2-3 weeks and work your way back to shape slow. If you try to do to much to soon you'll either get hurt or discouraged. After that though it should be easy to motivate yourself back into the gym, no sense in wasting those weeks back in just to quit lol.

    And I agree totally. I've been easing back in gradually for the past few weeks doing what I call "platforming" just to get back into the shape I considered a good point to start training hard like I used too. But there's been no heavy lifting. Just high paced , high intensity lifting with the idea of keeping motivation and desire. Plus my body isn't in the best condition due to injury in the past few years. Which I feel has helped make me a better lifter in just the short time I've been back at it. Me and my boy who remotivated me came to the conclusion that smart and strong is better than dumb and tough.

    One distinct advantage I do have to getting back into shape and lifting again is my boy I started training with years ago in Iraq never gave it up. He's one of the fittest dudes I know and reps with a supp company. He hooked me up with a 30 day supply of pretty much everything I need to get started again. It was a sweet little combo of everything u could ask for to get started. And I take his advice to be gospel most of the time lol. So I'm gonna stick to the supps he knows are legit and recommends. I'll have a full list of my supp regiment soon.

    I'm not totally positive he works out either but we have lived together. A couple times. And I do know for sure that he is an avid YouTube expert. I think that's where most of his stuff comes from. Plus these days it's super easy to cut and paste anyone's advice off the internet. Especially when it's not trade marked lol

    Ok so throughout today I'll get my meal plan posted. A lot of stuff has been taken out of the original container for space/ keeping in the fridge etc so some of the macros will be posted after my next grocery day. But this is my typical morning:
    As soon as I hit the floor it's a grapefruit and my daily dose of Finaflex active multi.

    About 2hrs after that is my morning shake:
    2scoops protein
    1/2 cup Greek yogurt
    1/2 cup egg whites
    8 oz almond milk
    4oz water
    2tbsp almond butter
    1/4 steel cut oats

    About an hour after that I prep my gym shakes and head out:
    Pre- 1 scoop Finaflex creatrona
    1 scoop Finaflex stimul8
    1 scoop Finaflex bcaa/saa

    Intra- 1 scoop Finaflex bcaa/saa

    Post- 2 scoops protein

    Other than my first shake of the day getting 8 oz almond milk and other shakes/drinks are made with only water.

    I'd use the term friend loosely. The army forced us to work together then he grew on me like hemorrhoids. Lol.
