Just got on my nerves that a goal that I could achieve in under 2 years seems way in the future because I can't cut until I stop growing.
I'll try to just think in terms of weeks from now on like Mike sad.
I just got bogged down yesterday when I started thinking about the future.
I'll try to priorities.
there is no quick fix linden you have to put in the graft and enjoy what you are doing.

Yeah, I know.
Just feels like my goal is going to take a good few years more than I thought.
I'm prepared to work for it regardless though.

Lifting is a lifetime process. Why work so hard for a goal just to stop when you reach it and revert back to your old self. Don't think in terms of weeks, months or even a couple of years; think about life changes.

If you do the work for a year, you're likely to put 100 lbs on your squats and deadlifts, at least 50 on your bench press and upper body lifts. Two years could easily double that (so 200 total on lower body lifts and 100 total on upper). I'd be shocked if you didn't look as good as that actor fellow in two years or less.

But you won't look one ounce better until you start to be consistent about getting the work done and eat and sleep properly.

That said you could also look a lot worse too. Anything can happen. All good plans go awry from time to time. There's no guarantees in life.

Just keep doing the right things and see what happens and you'll be amazed a year from now, even more amazed in two years.

Exactly two years ago, I could barely squat 215, bench 200, or deadlift 235 at around 188 lbs. Now I'm about 10 pounds heavier and squatting and deadlifting close to 400, benching almost 300. I fit in the same pants I was wearing back then. I'm much stronger and "bigger" overall, but only 10 pounds heavier and no one will tell you I watch what I eat all that closely (unless it's time to make weight). And I'm 48.

You're young and likely to make much better progress, and you actually want to gain weight which I didn't really. Not that I realy tried to stop it either. haha.

But the journey of a 1000 miles starts with the first step. I had no idea I'd be lifting what I can lift now 2 years ago.

Just take the first steps and see where this goes.

Never said I'd revert back to my old self.
I'll never stop training, but there'll be a period when I don't want to get any bigger.
I guess then I'll just focus on getting stronger whilst maintaining my weight.

Oh my God.

Iv'e just written out a full log of everything that happened yesterday and my computer froze.
Too annoyed to write everything out again, it took me half an hour.
I'll type it up again later on.

UPDATE

Ddi my workout late yesterday so was too tired to write this up. Here it is.

FOOD
Got to grips with my diet now, and my appetite has gotten bigger since I started last week.
I found myself wanting more food even after I've eaten all my set meals.


WORKOUT


ONE ARM DUMBBELL ROWS-5X5-16.5KG/36.3lbs
DEAD LIFT-5X5-58KG/127lbs
PUSHUPS-TILL FAILURE-BODY WEIGHT
PULL UPS-8X3-BODY WEIGHT
MILITARY PRESS-5X5-20KG/44lbs
V UPS-TILL FAILURE-BODY WEIGHT
GOBLET SQUATS-16.5KG/36.3lbs

Workout went really well. Didn't feel sick at all.
Which meant I could get through more.
I progressed in weight with dead lift and one arm rows.
With military press, I could do 20kg/44lbs on the first set, and then for each of the 4 sets after the first I knocked off 1.5kg/3.3lbs.
Eventually I'll be able to do 20kg for the full 5 sets. Probably not the most conventional way to apply progressive overload, but each week I'll hopefully be getting closer.

In general I feel bigger somehow, although I might not look it.
My lats brush against my arms more now when I walk, and particularly my chest traps and biceps feel fuller.
And no, thats not just the pump :P
