I am married, 2 beautiful kids (2yo and 4 yo) and live in Tasmania Australia
Height 6 foot 1
Motivation for BB, get fit and healthy (started to put on weight around the waist which is something I hadn't done for 10 years and felt unfit and lazy), also to demonstrate a healthy life style to my kids.
Started weight training 21 October 2006.
I am doing a 3 day a week full body beginners routine:
Bench press 4 x 12,10,10,8
Barbell curl 3 x 12,10,10
French press 3 x 12,10,10
Bent over row 4 x 12,10,10,8
Seated military press 3 x 12,10,10
Shrugs 3 x 12,10,10
Squats 4 x 12,10,10,8
I increase the % of One Rep Max each set.
I am using ORM to track my progress. I increase the % of ORM over a6 week cycle and then re set.
I am focussing at the moment on my style, trying to perform the exercise as intended, not boost my ego by cheating with extra weight.
My ORM at the beginning for each exercise (absolutely no cheating):
Bench press 56kgs
Barbell curl 36kgs
French press 19kgs
Bent over row 51kgs
Seated military press 32kgs
I will let you know my next ORM in a couple of weeks.
