Well gee, I could sure use some help
Hey guys, I've been gone from BS.net for a while.
I broke my foot in judo, and work has been hell, but anyway I'm trying to get back to training. I've stopped doing judo (still doing bjj), and joined a gym. I haven't lifted weights in years, and I'm in terrible shape for me, so I want to get back in shape.
But not just back in shape, I want to do it better this time, train for strength and properly. The thing is I've always done some random isolationist stuff at the gym, and that was years ago, so while I've been doing lots of research, I'm stumped by all the options out there, Stronglifts, Starting Strength and so on...
As for me, I'm 1'80m (around 5'10-5'11) and 72kg (159lbs), so not fat, but not big either. I do bjj twice a week (work permitting), and I go dancing with the missus once a week. I want to start going to the gym twice a week in the mornings before work and lift.
I've never squatted, deadlifted or any of those exercises in my life, but I'm quite serious about getting bigger and stronger. Also, I'm probably gonna have to start eating better, I'll have to see about that.
Help me Obi-Wan-Kenobi, you're my only hope.
