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.

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.

Was running late today, so I didn't get to do any ab work. I may try to do it tonight at home or at a client's office. I didn't get into the workout like I wanted to, just wasn't feeling it. Maybe running late had my mind racing with everything I needed to get done.
Slept really good last night. Went to be around 8:30 and woke up at 4. Laid there for a "minute" before I realized it was 4:30. I need to start popping up when the alarm goes off.
Got to work and was putting my lunch away and my wife had a little side bag with something in it. Steak snack!!! Gobbled that up, decided to eat my lunch too as I haven't had breakfast yet. Ribs and broccoli. Yummy. I'm still getting my water in daily.
Yesterday was crazy. I posted in Ends and Pieces with "I'm hungry as hell!!!" and I ate a shitload of food yesterday. Some of it not do good but, I ate a lot. I weighed yesterday morning at 331lbs. After eating all day yesterday and taking two "so-so" dumps, this morning I weighed 329lbs. Very weird.
