WonderMonkey's Journel la pitiful
Alright so I am just getting back into the thick of things. I'm retraining myself to be in the gym so don't expect any miracles or decent comparisons to any of you monsters. I'll post here to publicly shame myself towards progress.
I contacted the supplement company I have recently made ties to and had them help me with a diet to fit my goals. What they came up with seems to be a great plan. I think it will take me a few days to get into the swing of it but over the course of a week I should have the routine down. The biggest thing I see is taking the time to prepare the day before. Else I'll fail at it.
At the same time I'm ramping up my workouts. I didn't want to get going too quick and hurt myself. I'm an old man and things tend to snap off and lay on the floor these days with too much stress.
Here is the diet:
Suggested Supplement Program:
Vitamins: Super Pak – 1 pack with meal #1
Lean Mass Support:
Ultra 40 – 4 tablets with each meal
Mass Aminos – 4 tablets with each meal
Glutamine Select – 1 scoop before and after training
For added lean mass and training energy: Creatine Select Cycle:
1st week – Loading Phase: 1 scoop per meal or 5 scoops daily
Weeks 2-4 – 1 scoop with meal #1 and 1 scoop before training
For added fat loss: Lean Out – 1 with each meal
2 whole egg + 4 egg whites
6 oz. very lean meat
1/2 cup oatmeal - before cooking
Protein Drink: 2 Scoops Ultra Size or Ultimate Muscle Protein, add enough water to make shake or pudding the consistency you desire
8-10 oz. lean meat
6 oz. sweet potato or 2/3 cup cooked brown rice
2 cups vegetables (broccoli, etc.) or salad with 2 TBS. Vinegar and Oil Dressing
(same as meal #2)
8-10 oz. very lean meat
½ cup rice or 4 oz. potato
2 cups vegetables
Salad with 2 TBS. Vinegar and Oil Dressing

I am 6' 2" and 250lbs. Initially I know that 225lbs is very doable even with the thought of "body weight doesn't count, fat % does." yeah yeah I know I have enough fat to get down to 225lbs even considering that I will gain lean body mass.
I have a fairly good base of muscle (for the average loser) still.
Today was chest day. Like I said before I'm still adding more and more so I don't kill myself.
3 sets to failure
At the end my chest felt done. Currently I still feel it.
Tomorrow : Shoulders and Triceps
What are your goals? Cutting, right? How long have you been lifting weights? I know a good website for people getting back into the gym if you want it. If not, good luck!
I've back at it for about 6 weeks. Prior, and years ago, I used to lift regularly.
I've eased back into it probably slower then I should have, but I realized that if I just go gung-ho then that leads to a higher chance of quitting.
My main goals are to cut weight, but I don't need to cut it all RIGHT NOW! So long as I see steady progress I'm happy.
And I'll take that link, I'm always interested in reading.
Thanks, I'll check it out now.
I read the getting started and other then the reps, it's similar to what I did. I signed up for the Max-OT workout and I'll read that as well.
Thanks for the link.

I know you said how much you liked the Max-OT site. I think you need to train with lighter weight since you are just getting back in the swing of things. Once your muscles are used to the workload, then make the switch. You'll benefit more that way..
