Getting Started

This is a new experiment for me. The main purpose of this blog will be to track my progress from my current physical condition to my ideal physical condition. So a little background information would probably be a good place to start.

I have always been one of the skinny guys. When I graduated from High School I was 6'3" and weighed somewhere around 165 lbs. Basically a bean pole is the way I would describe it. I'm now 25, married, and have one child. So naturally, I've put on some weight over the last few years (I currently weigh in around 195 lbs.), but still have a skinny appearance. I first noticed that I was actually putting on weight about 2 years ago when my wife and I went on a cruise. It was shortly after that when I started consistly working out. I've done all sorts of "programs" over the last 2 years (Body-for-LIFE, Maximum Growth, etc.) and have had progress, but not nearly as much as I would have hoped. I want to take it to the next level!

Being an ectomorph body type, I have found over the last 2 months or so that I have to constantly change up my workout routine or I tend to plateau very quickly. So the main purpose of this blog will be to track what I'm doing from day to day and week to week in terms of my training. I'll also post some stats tracking my progress every month or so to really see where things are heading. In fact, as a personal motivation, I'm also going to enter the 2006 Body-for-LIFE challenge, just to give me a short-term deadline and something to work towards as I get moving on this small journey of mine. Instead of following just one particular routine or workout program, I'll most likely go back and forth and use other techniques that I find on other websites to keep my routine in flux.

So that's the background info. This project will get started on Monday, April 3!
