Hello all, i've decided i'm going to track my journey of conditioning and whatever goals i desire. but before i get into that here's a bit of background info. I played football(soccer) at a semi professional level and trained with a premier league academy from the age of 9, but decided to leave at 16 due to wanting an education instead of relying on a career that may never truely take off. I'm now 20 years old and have suffered with knee tendonitis for years, but most recently i've been diagnosed with arthritis in my left knee due to either A. shit genetics, or B. taking one to many dodgy tackles to it. So as you can tell my knees are the bane of my existance. As of tomorrow i'm getting my shit together, fuck knees. I want to work solely on conditioning myself using only my bodyweight as well as combining LISS and HITT around my college work and part time job. I'm quitting drinking and eating unhealthy food all together, i can survive without em. Obviously i understand how beneficial lifting is but for the moment i want to work on being able to run without being in any pain, or atleast less. I plan to look into starting strength once i've achieved this. Short term goals - 3 month time period Achieve a 5 mile run in under 40 minutes Drop 20 - 30 pounds over 3 months using strict meal plans. Increased flexibility, especially for the muscles that support my knee. Be able to perform 50 bodyweight squats in one set pain free. 10 consecutive elevated hand stand push ups. 50 consecutive push ups. 20 consecutive pull ups. 20 full dips. Hold back bridge for 3 minutes. Hold the plank for 3 minutes Do atleast 5 GHR My height is also 6ft 4 and weight is roughly around 215lb. I'll add whatever long term goals i have whenever i accomplish the short term ones. Anyways i'm drunk as fucks so i'll get you guys up to speed with my progress tomorrow.
