Howdy all, New around these parts, been a member on ukm / TM for a bit but never posted anything of worth. Been training for close to 10 years but again, never achieved anything worth shouting about. Now I'm 30 I've accepted the fact that I just train because I enjoy it, it's my 'me time' and I can't be bothered taking up a new hobby! Training is and has always been all over the shop, it varies depending on what interests me at the time. Hopefully starting a journal will help me focus all of my thoughts in one place instead of flitting from one thing to another. I'm also hoping it keeps me accountable to myself, but we'll see. Current stats 30 y/o 5 foot 11 Weighed in this AM at 17st 10lbs. Nowhere near lean, but I seem to carry my weight well in that I wouldn't consider myself a chunker to look at. I've always been heavy, even as a scrawny teenager. Seem to hold weight around mid 17st on 2800kcal. Once festivities are out the way I fancy getting to, and holding at 105-110kg. When I get down to this weight I always feel a lot better. Training is more strength based these days. I accept I won't ever resemble a BB, so going to try getting my lifts up to a half respectable standard. I have 1RM's from years ago when I was younger, more focused and partaking in certain 'supps'. But I'm not going to be that guy banging on about what he used to lift. Recently hit 230kg deadlift, and 182.5kg squat which I'm reasonably happy with. Haven't tested bench or OHP, as I've had shoulder issues I'd rather take time to build the strength back up than push for a max and knacker myself. I've also been dicking around with some strongman style stuff, for no reason other than curiosity. Training will likely be all over the shop for a bit as even when I put a programme together for myself I deviate within a week or so as I have a terrible attention span. In the new year I do plan on investing in some sort of coach, whether it be a monthly thing or even a one off programme to start with. Going out for a push session shortly so will throw it up here after.
