Ok, I've been a lazy POS for the past 3 months and havent gone to the gym. I'll spare everyone the excuses and get down to business. I really need to get my ass in shape, Ive done Rippetoes's before and thought it would be a good program to get back into.
Im 30 yrs old
My goals arent to get huge. Just leaner more muscular and healthy.
I started a calorie deficit about two weeks ago and I plan to stay that way for another two weeks in hopes of losing some winter fat. I eat alot of protein but ive been cutting out carbs. I think this might make my gains more difficult.
I thought Id start off low
So I started today with this:
Bench: 115 - 5x5 (it was pretty easy so I did 5 sets)
Squat: 135x10, 155 3x5
DL: 175 3x5
I didnt do any accessories...I was happy i got myself back in the gym.
I'm very motivated now and I think I'll make some good progress.
BTW I did the squats on a Smith machine... Does that suck?
