Default BrackneyC Gets Back To The Basics

Hey all. New journaler here.

A bit of background:

May 17th, 2009: I weighed 264lbs. I was heavily medicated for Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. Saw myself in the mirror for what felt like the first time in a long time. I was appalled. I decided to make a change. I am currently 180lbs (up from a low of 170lbs). I am in the process of trying to drop about 8lbs of BF through a strict diet and consistent training.

I train 3 days a week (full body) and do cardio on two of the other days, and off the other two days. I am in the middle of a 5 week routine, and I am unsure if I will keep it after 5 weeks, or go to some type of split. I will re-assess in 2.5 weeks.

I look forward to posting my journal here, and getting some feedback if you see something that looks out of sorts.

Here is what I did today.

Wednesday 05/11/2011 Workout B

Weight today 180

Time in: 0415
Time out: 0540

3 x 175 x 10

4 x 150 x 12

3 x 125 x 10

3 x 115 x 10

3 x 165 x 10

Had a good one today. Nothing out of the ordinary, except this…I feel like I am consistently giving all I have on every set, with every rep. That for me is much more important than having a good set here and there, which is sometimes how I used to measure my effort. I feel like I am very connected to my program right now. I will take that as a bigger sign of my progress than anything else right now. Consistency, with a mindset of feeling every rep, is driving me further into this game than anything else right now.

Have a great day everyone. Lift heavy. ☺
I'm your Huckleberry....
