First my stats: 39 years old - Bday in September. 6' tall Weight - 278 Goal - 185 by September 09 ***Revised Goal*** I have high blood pressure and I really need to lose this weight. I have been carrying way to much weight for 10 years or more. I need to drop it before it drops me. I also want to be able to do simple athletic stuff again like play basketball w/my kids. I weighed my self last Sunday and I was at 288. I started doing Atkins and doing the Stronglifts.com 5x5 program this week and I am already feeling better. I want to get strong and be able to do some pull ups and maybe even swing on the monkey bars w/my kids. I am going to post Friday's workout below and just go from there: w/up - 10 min bike Squats(ATG): 5x45, 5x65, 5x115, 5x5x135 OHP:5x45, 5x5x95 DL: 5x133, 5x183, 5x227 Pull down palm out: 3x156, 4x146* Pull down palm in: 2x156, 5x146* *I am supposed to do pull-ups, but I couldn't pull my self up. I am going to do some BOR's or pull-up negatives from now on. Whole w/o took 1hr 15min. Saturday I did 50 min on the bike w/avg HB of 124.
