Goals! What Goals?

Flashback.

Sometime in the month of May this year. Day 1 at the gym.
Here I stand 35 years old, 5’9″ and weigh 220lbs with a BMI of 30. I have a spare tire i want to get rid of and have legs like jelly. My upper body is quite stocky anyway but needs to be toned.
Fear grips me, will I hack this? I spent the night online at the bodybuilding.com, scouring information on exercises, training routines, supplements, you name it.

Age Factor
Will my age work against me? Can I lose weight; get rid of the fat and gain muscle mass? So many questions, so confusing. Now, I got a whole mess of nay sayers and encouragement guys to refute me, but honestly, at age 35, i can certainly get my weight in order, and cut up more, and there is always the illusion factor IE: waist is smaller making the taper seem bigger, etc….

Goals Specific
I’ve read that i need to set specific goals and if i don’t then i will fail or not keep to my training regime because i will get disheartened from not seeing results.

So out comes the note book / diary, starting a gym log …yeah …setting targets.
All this because in a couple of years , I want to look like this .

“The feebler the body, the more it rules: the stronger, the more it obeys.” Rousseau from “Emile” Book 1
For anyone who cant make it to the gym for various reasons, check out this site. http://hundredpushups.com/index.html

  1. Hahaha nooooo! That can’t be your goal, he’s too muscled up. Too much muscle ain’t that good, you will feel like a rock. Being in shape and fit is good. You can use Idris Elba 🙂

    So now I have a mental picture of you (I hope you did yourself justice) … and your age … tihihi!
