Project ; Rev210 Fit At 40

Recommended Posts

I am approaching my 40th in May this year so the idea is to get into the best shape of my life before then. Establish some good habits and routines around looking after my body for the rest of my life.

I have let myself go relatively speaking, due to the usual excuses.

The key goals are;

* Fix/correct issues with my longer term injurys (left shoulder and wrist). Also train to correct posture , mobility and flexibillity.

* Get stronger. I would like to be able to get to a point where I am able to get good numbers on the big 3 lifts again. Will be happy to just be doing them again.

* Get leaner. Not stupid lean , just to a good asthetic level (so I can see 'all my abs again). Don't care about measuring % so much as ensuring I get back to not having the pudding on the sides and lower abbs I have now. Waist is 34 inches , I'd like to get back down to 32 again.

* Improve fitness and cardiovascular health.

* get back legs. I have lost muscle in my legs more than my upper body for some reason (probably lack of use) So correcting the chicken legs will be happening.

I am aware of my weakness to go too full tilt when I start out (something in my head remembers lifting more and drives me to go stupid). So I am just doing some very basic lifting with the weights at home till I have been going a month and then , provided I am ok in the injury areas I will get to a power orientated gym.

At the moment I am 192cm and at a guess I would be 100kg-ish.

I am not that focused on weight , I tend to use scales for measuring food not myself. But, I might get some out if it's a good idea for tracking things.

If people have views/ideas on this or other things happy to hear.

Initial fix up workouts for wrists /elbows/ shoulders have definately got me into the land of two day later pains.

My range of motion on the stretches for my left side was pretty bad. I should have mentioned I am doing lots of these to help ROM and recovery every day.

Even the cursed foam roller is being dusted off to help unlock things before I do anything serious for the legs. Rolling the ITB's fricken pain city...

The plan is I won't be doing any squats /deads or bench till I complete this phase of recovery and earning the right through demonstrated commitment to go to a gym.

Once I am happy , I will be in there to re-learn and train to go hard. oh and do lots of squats of course.....

Yes it is good so far. But, I am really unfit, including the gym fitness. I am having a huge rest at the moment after doing my first lot of deadlifts. Almost vomited (obviously could have tried harder).

RS172 needed to go. The Polo gti is reminding me to go back to a GTR. This year it will be another gtr....

Checked my weight today . I was thinking I was maybe under eating the last two weeks or so too.

Wiifit board says 96.5kg

I am substituting some foods. Going tuna in oil vs spring water and adding some extra carbs in the morning in the form of more oats.
