Default Bigger, Stronger, Faster, Better!

I found this place a few days ago and i like the way people here think so i thought i might start a log here and maybe make a few like minded friends along the way.

Long story short: I worked out for about 5yrs (went from 130lbs to 180lbs in the first yr), then quit for a couple years and lost all the muscle i gained. Ya im a genius.

Thankfully i got back into it again a couple yrs ago, but sadly i havent taken strength training seriously this time around so im weak as hell. Add to this the fact that for the last 4 months ive had a mysterous illness that Drs cant seem to find the cause of (chronic fatigue/ fibromayalgia or something with similar symptoms- fatigue, muscle weakness, not sleeping well, anxiety etc) and its like im starting from scratch all over again. But this time i have this illness to contend with so my strength is worse than most beginners. Feel free to LOL at the fact that im down to 140lbs (about 9% bf) and squatting about 100lbs for 5 reps. :s Its pathetic, but i have no where to go but up (i hope) and who knows maybe the ridicule will help me push harder..lol.

IDK if/when ill be over these issues, but im hoping that im finally on the path to recovery and that ill be able to build some strength and add some mass while getting back to my former healthy and energetic self.

My goals are simple. To gain strength, muscle (without getting too fat), and better health using strength and conditioning training, proper nutrition, positive thinking and anything else that i find helps my mental and physical well being.

I plan to use this log in a few different ways:

-To motivate myself and possibly others.
-To keep myself honest and on track so i dont jump from one routine or goal to another like i have the last couple years.
-To learn as much as i can so i can be a great PT and help others.
-To post funny/intersting/positive stuff i find worth sharing.
-To make friends and have fun.

Thanks,
Wes

================================================== ====

Current Goals:
Bulk from 140-160lbs
Squats 200lbs
Deadlift 200lbs
Bench 200lbs

Welcome aboard. Nobody here is going to ridicule you... if you truly want that kind of feedback for motivation, you're in the wrong place (BB.com is the place to be for that).

Glad you decided to start a log too. I'm no expert on full body, but plenty of people here are.

Wherever you're starting from, you're starting. That's the best decision you could make.

Subbed. It means subscribed to the thread. People here actually read each others training logs and encourage them. There is no B.S. here, only a postive attitude and a dedication to work harder to acheive our goals.
