Been lurking for some time now and really never gave much thought to what I would post first too! However after reading and watching Gus Pancho I feel that his inspiration is enough to make me want this!
I work on a full time SWAT Team and have competed in events at the National Level of competition twice. Due to the unknown daily work schedule being on any “diet” just seems unavailable.
In 2007 my goal was to DL 405 and Squat 405 eventually meeting both goals with a final DL of 455 and squat of 425. However after those goals were made life changed for me and I fell off the wagon, if you will, from training. My weight went from 190 to about 219 and fluctuated in that area! Not being happy with this present state I have recently gotten back into training full time with a mix of the 5x5 program and a college football pre season program that was designed for my team during the training for National Competition.
I plan on starting Monday 02/23/09…as the following month I will be working exclusively in the field of recruit training I feel this is the best time to kick start a program at better health. As well I have my annual PT assessment on 05/22/09 and would like to score in the 90 percentile. (scored 83% last year)
Thanks Chris, TC, Chad and Gus for the inspiration and time investment!
Pictures to be delivered Monday!
