Some people find it really hard to get started. I always say the same thing when asked… Just start then work the details out as you go. Take a break when you need too but never quit!
It’s the philosophy I followed 30 pounds and 2 pants sizes ago and I still do. It’s important to make your workout fit not only your expectations but your physical strengths too. If you never push yourself then how will you know what’s possible?
Customization is the key. Unless you’re trying to be a competition bodybuilder your first time out there is no need to read some professional’s food & workout log and expect that to work for you. Especially if you’ve been away from the fit life since elementary school.
Take your time. Customize your workout and diet to fit you and your expectations. Lean on people who are already where you want to be and workout with them when time permits is a great way to get going.
I’ve posted a few of my workouts below. Remember, these are just something to work your way up to. Customize, customize, customize! If you have any questions, reach out to me on social media(my info is on this blog) or email me at email@example.com.
