Began working out at age 15.
Suffered a bad back injury in 2006 and was forced to hang up the towel.
so far ive Lost over 3 and half inches on my arms,
my bench stregnth decreased by 50 kilos and basically packed on an aditional 12 percent of body fat.
Finally got the ok from my doc to hit the gym again, got back into the scene 16 weeks ago after 10 months of couch potatoe. Concentrated on basically cutting, and lost 19 kilos, probably the bigest cut ive ever done in my lfe. Last monday, the 27th of January 2007, i commenced my first bulking session post back injury. I have alot of catching up to do, and my goal is get back into the game and work up a body for the Australian summer of december 2007
My stats/mesurements are as follows:
estimating @ 13-14 percent fat
38 and a half inch chest at the nipples straight
16 inch calfs at the largest point
11 and 3 quarter inch forearms
22 inch legs
Bench is about 65 kilos
Barbell curls at 35 kilos
Squats at 70 kilos
Deadlift.... haven't dont yet, dont know wanna try it till my lower back is back to normal
First week of training:
Currently doing S.A.I.S.S training,
this means you pick 3 excersises for each body part.
You perform each set to failure which consists of:
-Fast twitch excerises: 6 reps of 3 sets, peformed very explosive and fast, with 1 second breaks in between reps and 3-5 rests between sets
-Intermediate excerises: 10 reps of 2 sets, performed at a medium pace, with a short pause between reps and 2-3 rests between sets.
-Auxillary excerises: 20 reps of 1 set, performed very slow with no pause between reps.
I actually add i set to each of the 3 excerises, to a] burn more calories b] ensure the muscle is totally ripped. Though the 6 sets is proven to be adequate in stimulating some serious muscle growth.
My training program so far is as follows:

I believe i may be lactose intolerant.
So in the meantime, ive cut out of my protien shakes and replaced them with their protien equivilants of either tuna or salmon [temporarily] and have replaced my cereal milk with soy milk. Cottage cheese is been replaced by 5 eggs.
I also droped the omega 3 and green tea, because its highly possible they are also adding to my upset stomach. I'm really wishing ill get to the bottom of my diet troubles soon, and will add just the 1 protien shake post workout for its digestive qualities as well as omega 3 for good fats. Everything else, i can live with.
I'll be updating at least every week for the next 8 months during my first post injury bulking session.
My goals are by that time:
I will get the majority of previous gains back,
and look just like i did at my peek at the end of 2005:
Everyone has commented on how my operation has eaten away at my body,
its time to use that as motivation and get back what i worked so hard to achieve.
-Flat Bench back @ 120 kilos
-17 inch arms
-No more 1 percent of body fat acumilated in 6 weeks of bulking
-Barbell curl @ 60 kilos
Wish me luck.
