    Just introducing myself and saying hello

    Hey everyone... I posted my first thread yesterday but realized that I hadn't submitted a formal introduction. From of life of absolutely no physical training whatsoever, genetics overrode that and I have always been very lean. Age 18 I was 5'8" 100 lbs - married at 22 at 110 lbs. Then just sit at a desk or stood all day for my jobs. At about age 35 I started to get a little bit of a belly because I guess the metabolism slowed somewhat and now the bad eating attributed to a bit of a gut. Really, though, my midsection was the only place I saw fat.

    About two years ago, I started eating healthy and maintained my weight but still had a bit of a gut.

    n January, when I decided that before my 40th birthday (12-12-12), I wanted to work out and see what happened. At 39, I weighed about 147 lbs and 5'10" tall. I hired a trainer at the beginning of the year and boy was I in for a surprise. First squats were 20 lbs on a smith machine!!!! First bench was 40 lbs! Unbelievably weak!

    I bulked through the end of May this year and gained 11 lbs. Then, on June first, I started leangains (with my trainer) and currently sit at 138.5 lbs and dropped 4.5 inches around the gut area! My goal is to see a bit of abs before beginning a bulk again on my anniversary date of January 12.

    I can't believe how much strength I've gained. But most of all, I've committed working out and eating healthy as a lifestyle.

    My goal for March 2014: Weigh 160 lbs at 10% bf. Not sure if it's attainable yet or not, but it's my goal.

    I enjoy reading all your posts and am still learning so much on top of what my trainer has taught me. He's an awesome guy and has done wonders with a gutty skinny guy of nearly 40 years old.

    Cheers!

    Matt

    I would not mind being 5'8, however not quite that thin. Best of luck to you and am looking forward to seeing and hearing about your progress.

    Hey buddy. I only joined yesterday as well. I used to train 15 - 19 years ago but always focused on strength. I never worked on reducing body fat, although playing sports kept me reasonably in shape.

    Now at 37, my goals are a little different. Metabolism has slowed and I have a belly. I still want strength gains but my priority is removing the fat which has become rather unsightly (to me at least).

    Part of the reason for the weight gain is that I gave up smoking six months ago and have piled on the lbs since. Yep, I know, bad lifestyle - but it's all behind me and i'm now heading in the right direction.

    Best of luck with your training and continued motivation.
