    hello all,

    Highschool athlete, taught to look at the sky during squats and press. And still breaking the habit.

    I haven't worked out in roughly 6-7 years since starting work. (25M, 220LBS, 6'2'')

    I am mainly body fat i assume. I have worked on the pipeline in west and south-east Texas for the past 5 years and have the "wrench muscle" but hitting the gym made me realize how weak i have gotten. The gas station food and Whataburger have treated me poorly. I have been on a "diet" the past 3 weeks consisting of 200gs of protein and keeping around 2700 calories and i have lost a couple pounds. I have a high water intake and have dropped to zero alcohol intake. I plan on starting the program and upping my calories to 3500 starting October 4th. Can I expect a "recomp" or a total mass increase? I have before pics and they're depressing to me. I assume this is a wasteful post and I'm okay with it being taking down. What can i expect from starting from the bar up to 6 months from now?

    If you read the book follow the training exactly as recommended your body composition will change radically.
    At your age this is the time to get serious about who you want to be.

    Donít worry about 6 months weight training requires a dogmatic approach where you look years out.

    The good news it will work and does work every single time for every person that puts in the effort

    Nothing that comes easily is worthwhile

    Get the book look forward years even decades make it a lifetime habit

    Iím turning 70 been lifting since the 70s Iím way stronger than most guys half my age

    You can expect to be stronger than now, physically and mentally, and be thus more useful.
