Here I am at the beginning. I'm 48-years-old and have not looked like a bodybuilder for 25 years. I have researched HST on the internet and it looks the way to go. I have completed my first two 15's workouts. I have greatly enjoyed the full-body workouts which took about 1 hour. At the advice of Totentanz my first cycle from this state of complete uncondition is going to be two back-to-back 6-week cycles of 15's,10's and 5's with a two week SD at Christmas. I am 6' 1 tall and weigh 183 lb. According to my handheld monitor my body fat is around 22%! I think I look quite bony in my photo with <13" arms so am going for a bulk to regain lost size, I expect to drop a little body fat if I respond well to the program. My dietary intake will be around 3,300 kcals and approach 1 g/lb protein. I don't want to go higher than that to start as I am "middle-aged" and slightly fatter than the optimum. This is a lot of food for me; I may increase the macro's later. Before pictures taken late September 2012. Along with my weight and body fat readings I have taken full tape measurements so as to fully chart the efficacy of my first HST cycle. I also have a back double bicep, bicep shot and a recent poolside photo that I will publish later alongside my transformation pics! Diet plan to follow.
