Just ordered Starting Strength. Should be here 5 to 10 days.
Height: 6' 6"
Weight: 327lbs (Down from 337lbs.)
Body fat: 35%+
Only has one-arm.
Procrastinator at large.
Loves to eat.
Needs to find a real gym.
Bench - 110lbs
Squat - 315lbs
Deadlift - 225lbs
Press - 60lbs
Ass - 327lbs
I want to lean out and still gain strength. After that, bulk up and get as strong as I can.
How I plan to obtain goal:
Keep the commitment to myself and actually follow through with it.
Keep my diet clean, eat proper proportions, and rest/sleep as much as possible. Eat just enough to keep myself fueled and my muscles fed. (Maybe) Lift three times a week and the rest days, rest and/or some cardio.
Squat 600lbs+ while being 100% raw.
How I plan to obtain 2nd goal:
Use food, rest, food and more food, wraps, belts, and anything else I can to help gain enough strength to obtain the goal.
To love my sons and wife until the day I die.
To make sure I'm strong as hell and to be able to pass the knowledge I gain from the book, others, and any other resources to ensure that my two (big ass) kids will be monsters in JR High.
I'll post a before picture in the next few days as I wait for the book to come in. It was a few years ago but, not much has changed. (Or I might snap a new one at 327lbs.)
So any comments, suggestions and criticisms (good/bad) are welcome. Trolls will be +1'ed.
Thanks and I hope to bring more delight to this great board and all the wonderful participants.
Quick video (posted in Technique already) of myself deadlifting 225lbs 8 times.

125 of mixed ab work (crunches/bicycles/leg lifts).
I forgot to mention in my first post that I've had an ongoing shoulder issue and certain movements really hurts. Prime example (the motion) is like opening a sliding door. Pulling from right to the left as it opens. Sometimes I can barely do anything like that. Also, drivers side seat belt. Grab the latch at the top and pulling across really hurts too. I have to pull, stop, pull stop as one large motion really hurts.
I would have never guessed you are 327lbs from the video. You wear it well.
Thanks, I wanted to for awhile but, I wasn't able to do much of anything (low paying job) workout wise, so I waited. Now that I have a new job and they pay for a gym membership, I'm going to take advantage of it. Also, bought SS too so, I'm ready to get going. I hope it gets here before Friday or on Friday. I'd like to start Monday morning.
