    Bmcgarry's Log of Getting in Shape

    I got serious about working out during a military deployment in 2007 and worked out consistently for about 18 months. I was in the best shape of my life in 2008. In early 2009 I hurt my shoulder at work and being stubborn, didn't do anything about it for 6 months. Ended up a subscapularis tear and bicep tendon rupture. During the time from 2009-2011 I had two surgeries to include a biceps tenodisis. I moved and started a new career, attended college full time, and produced two children. I've got a whole laundry list of excuses (cue worlds smallest violin). So here I am now, overweight and in horrible condition. Finally finished school so it's time to focus on my health.

    Positive suggestions always welcome.

    GOAL: Lose fat, gain muscle. I'd like to stay around 180lbs, but need to reduce my body fat percentage significantly.

    Supplements: Protein powder, CLA, Jack3d pre-workout, multivitamin
    BEFORE (the starting point): 5'9" 183lbs about 26.7% bodyfat.
    Neck 15.5" Shoulders 50" Chest 40.5" Arms 13.2" Waist 39.2" Hips 40" Calves 13.8"

    Tried to post pics but post count is under 50. You can see them on my bodyspace if your interested. Nothing impressive.
