Starting this journal as way to help myself stay accountable.
I am starting from absolute scratch - been a sedentary couch potato for many years, with only isolated bursts of exercise; nothing resembling anything consistent since about 7 years ago.
38 yrs old
Body Fat: 36%
My goal for now is to increase overall health and fitness and cut fat, while preserving as much lean body mass as possible, maybe even benefit from some beginner gains.
I'm starting out with this 12-week full body routine
I'm going to ease into it slowly. I'm going to focus on form and letting my body get used to weight training before I up the intensity too much. This means I'll be starting out with very light weights, but I'm in this for the long haul, so I'd rather do it this way than overdo it to start.
