My goals run year to year (You can get a brief background on me in the thread: Vital-Statements).
My goal this year, is pretty simple. I want to bulk a small bit, and then lean back down to about 8% just before my 51st birthday. Currently, I am between 8 to 9, but haven't had a DEXA scan in about 3 weeks or so. Going to get one on Thursday, so its a visual estimate. When I lean back down, I want to be above 172 ish (dry weight, without adding the normal flux during the day -/+ 3 to 4 pounds). Basically net about 3 to 4 pounds (over-all) muscle. Last year, I netted about 3 pounds approximately.
In my workouts, I peform Upper/Lower Slow-rep Circuits. Upper is basically a push/pull circuit. I focus upon time under the bar as well as time between sets, with heart rate up. I progressively respond well to this as compared to more conventional methods. Diet I can get into, later, as we move along in the journal. I also focus on cardiovascular conditioning: Have to take care of the engine that moves the house.
I am personally a very demanding individual. I let my brain dictate correct action, as I know my body lies and tells the truth.
Do either of you want to partner up?
