    Default MidnightHawk's journal

    Hi, welcome to my journal to keep myself accountable.

    A little about me:
    30 year old out of shape fat a$$ that got tired of feeling tired and out of shape. Found this website back last year around Christmas time. Seen the transformations other people were making and said to myself "hey if they can do it I can do it too". So here I am 7 months later feeling good about myself and losing weight and getting in shape and studying nutrition and working out.

    My goals:
    I have no aspiration to excel in the bodybuilding world like a Mr Olympia or Mr Universe because those dreams belong to those who can devote serious time and effort to make it happen. I only want to better my personal health and lifestyle and if possible help others do the same or beyond. Another goal I have is too learn so that I can pay forward to anyone whose goals reach further than my own...if it be possible.

    It will take some time to pan out and show but plan to make this journal about my routine and my nutrition so if you happen to stop in here by chance and see something that will help me improve myself then by all means toss in your 2 cents ...if you help me achieve my goal then I can forward the knowledge and help others achieve their goals. Fitness is supposed to be shared with others, right?

    Today, 7 months after making the decision to better myself. I have lost 28 lbs, made strength gains that I had not thought of before 2015, and keeping myself accountable as to my hits and misses.

    Anyways, welcome to my journal.

    This has been my routine for about the last month. I was training different body parts almost every day til my work picked a lot and since my workout time got shortened thought it best to switch up how I was working out. I think the change is helping me a great deal. My muscles seem to be reacting differently in a positive way.

    No leg work...Probably gonna regret it though. Long week ahead so plan to hit them lightly on Wednesday and again on Friday as usual. I am revolving Dragon Over Ride and Extreme Over Ride on gym days. Definitely enjoying the difference of having added Plasma Blast to my supp regimen. Two scoops with one scoop of Extreme Over Ride 30 minutes before gym time. This will be my final week using PB as a pre before going to intra for two weeks.

    I'm a big fan of the pay it forward mentality. I personally think that the being open to helping others is the best thing for the fitness community to continue to develop and grow. While there will always be those who detract from the community, it is worth it to help other experience the same joy and benefits we derive from exercise. It's like new years resolutioners. Most are just taking up space and will quit relatively soon, but a few discover a new passion that will benefit them for years to come. Aside from that...

    With all those sets/exercises, how long does your typical workout last?

    If the gym isn't packed I can get in and out in around 2 hours... if I work legs. Without leg work I can get out in 1.25 - 1.5 hours most days. But please note I train M-W-F only. This is not a schedule I could handle 5-6 days every week. Early in '15 I was hitting 5 days splits but my work doesn't allow me to keep that schedule anymore.

    It's always interesting to see the difference between people's training methods. Just checking if I'm reading this right, on Monday the 28th you started with 16 sets of bench? I'm guessing you take minimal rest inbetween sets to fit all that work in that little time. I can't imagine fitting all that work especially with some of that poundage into that period of time ( admittedly I train with a very different approach )

    Yeah. But notice my rep #s are not in the 12-15 range. I hit lighter weight to warm up then move on. Plus I use spotters who rack weights for me. 30 seconds rest between sets. My schedule is quite busy so socializing in the gym is not one of my finer points. I try to get in and out asap.

    New Years Day !! Hit the gym early at 9am for first morning workout in a long long time. Strangely enough there was no NY crowd by the time I left at 11:30. Added 4g Citrulline to my usual pre...made everything just about perfect.

    Flu symptoms set in in early afternoon. Been sleeping and tossing cookies ever since. Got the new year off to a great start then straight down hill after that.

    LOL.. to correct my main typo in OP my age is 53, not 30. Thanks to those who pointed that out.


    Anyway, been a long while since updating this thread. I had totally forgot it even existed. Will try to keep it updated more often now that I am back to more activity here.

    My routine has been nothing like previous. Using free weight bench and dumbbells since Spring of 2016 with only 180 lbs of weight. I have stopped into a few gyms on a rush to say hey to an owner or two but haven't had the time to spend like really needed. Eating good healthy foods. Trying to bulk til mid-March.

    Hey!! So good to see you back. Many of my old friends don't post anymore. I just got back on in Dec, although I have been pretty consistent with lifting.

    Am I reading this correctly--you do all of this in the morning? Impressive. How early do you go? I do aerobics at 5:50 am, but I cannot lift hardly anything until at least 10 am. Did you have a hard time getting use to all that weight in the am?

    Yes nothing like back in the day when there were many more people on here. Always was a positive place for support.

    At the time I was working for myself. So I built my workouts into my schedule, sometimes in morning, sometimes afternoon, sometimes at night, whenever I could get into a gym. Pushups, situps, and pullups are every morning regardless. Never really had a hard time just had to deal with pains that set in a couple hours after finishing up. But haven't worked out in a gym since Spring of '16. Bench and DBs in garage at home has been my only resource since then.

    Will be glad to see a revival of sort soon. Some forums around the internet have gone full potato where newbies seeking advice aren't welcomed to ask questions.
