Alright so I feel it is due to time to change it up once again. With my good friend Daveh competing and killing his first powerlifting meet in November. He has officially talked me into giving it a go too.
Now I just hope my body holds together until April. ( I have ducktape just in case ) Now this is supposed to be a smaller meet but I want to beat all my previous PR's I have so far. Now this last year has been terrible for me as far as setbacks and injuries but over the past 3 or 4 months I have been just taking smaller leaps and been more consistent and that has been working so far.
Recently got some new goodies for my training aids. A good jump rope for cardio. 7mm knee sleeves, elitefts mini bands, and some new meal prep containers. ( hopefully this will help me making excuses of not packing my lunch and eating out )
I will be focusing more on moving weights and getting strong than looking good. I tend to have decent results when I just train hard anyway.
As of right now I do not know what my Max lifts are and I do not want to try them as yet , just simply because of injury prevention.
I will try and focus on eating better and more often. Which I have been doing some and I feel much better in the gym than I have in a while.
But I would like to learn a bit more about better cooking using stuff like coconut oils and which rice is better than others and so. I seem to have forgotten how to eat good over the years.
I will be adding a good joint supplement program and see if that helps. My joints hurt bad all the time and I am open to suggestions.
Right now I am thinking of a basic supplement program of.
( thinking of trying beef gelatin )
I guess getting older you just have to fix what hurts.
Some stats I took today.
Arms 17 3/4 flexed , not flexed 16
legs at thickest point 25
waist at hips 41
waist at belly button 38
chest ( I think I measured right ) 50
shoulders ( if measured right ) 58
Not sure what my weight is. I will weigh as soon as possible.
Today will be legs so I will post later what happens there.
Hope to see some in here. With advice.
