About ten years ago I lost about 40 lbs of body fat through diet changes alone. I've been working out for about five years however the first three didn't get me very far. Considering my family's history with back problems I was very apprehensive to the idea of doing much of anything with free weights so I stuck to the machines and cardio. I did get results with that but nothing substantial, I was still a bit stick figure like and needed someone to push me.
Two years ago I hired a trainer with the premise that I need to know how to keep proper form so I don't injure myself. I began to see results from his training and he moved on to other opportunities. I immediately hired another trainer and decided at that point I really wanted to start on the physique that I always wanted.
This past year I've had a few setbacks around the holidays with limited time as well as some back muscles, for lack of better term, locking up to the point that two different massage therapists a week apart from one another were frustrated. Since most any movement was a chore it was a month long setback after the holidays. Despite that I've been able to go from 160 to 182 and definitely want to continue packing on quality pounds.
Problems to overcome:
Need to force myself to get in more often. The past few months I've not been hitting my minimum 5x/wk target.
In the name of gaining size I've let my diet slip. I still eat better than most but I need to clean it up a bit.
Current Measurements: (want to increase Chest and Arms and decrease BF)
Chest - 39"
Waist - 33"
Arm - 14"
Quads - 23.5
Hips - 42"
Shoulder to Shoulder - 43"
BF - 15%
Arginine - Labrada A2 Pump
BCAA - CTD BCAA-3750
Creatine - ProSupps Hyde
Protein - Depends on what's available at the time. MuscleMilk is readily available at my gym so if I'm in a hurry I'll get that. Otherwise it's Met-RX Protein Plus or BSN Syntha-6
Guys I'm Looking To Meet
Would like to meet guys in the Chicago area, guys that are visiting the Chicago area or guys that are in a city that I'm going to be visiting.
Would be great to meet more guys that are at a similar level as I am where we can provide encouragement to each other or more guys that have surpassed me and can offer advice.
Otherwise if you enjoy computers (Mac & Linux especially) movies (Horror, comedy, interesting documentaries ...) travel, video games and/or board games that's also very welcome.
