Welcome to my journal...... all advice is welcomed
Sometimes I just feel totally overwhelmed by the amount of info out there and the amount of info in my own head.
I NEED PEOPLE TO COME IN HERE AND TOATLLY TEAR WHAT I"M DOING APART.
I totally realize that my thyroid disease plays a HUGE factor in my training results, but maybe with the help of other following this we can figure some stuff out and use maybe some unconventional methods to get me to where I want to be. I've learned I have very few fast twitch muscles, my recovery sucks and my muscle contraction is inhibited, all from my thyroid disease.
AGE- 35 (turning 36 in the new year)
WEIGHT- 185lbs (started at 280lbs, dropped to 175lbs last summer, bulked up to 210lbs last winter and currently at 185lbs with abs most days)
BF%- less than 10, but I haven't measured lately
SUPPLIMENTS- 100% Whey, Animal Pak
TRAINING HISTORY- Trained at a gym for a year and now have worked out in my basement alone for an additional 2 years. I've tried a million different programs with very little results (Hench the "Frustration)
PROBLEMS- one hour a day, no more no less, lack of equipment, Arthritis in my legs quite bad, slower recovery than the average human and VERY slow metabolism.
My CURRENT PROGRAM seems to be working pretty good avoiding over training and keeping the fat off this older guy.
