My Workout Program
I'm trying something new, but it feels natural: Powerlifting and Strongman. I've always been drawn to those specidic lifts and events. Although I want the bodybuilder physique I am thinking that I will pursue this avenue for a bit while I work on my shape. It's been very saitsfying and it's fitting my lifestyle. (raising a family) So I am constantly looking for advice, techniques and motivation. Hopefully I will compete in the near future although I am training for the "big" lifts at home as my gym doesn't really like you doing them there ut it the one I can afford! When I do some I'll be sure to post some photos...

PREFACE: Any Help of Feedback is GREATLY Appreciated.
I am working Gluten Free, Post radiation therapy for Grave Disease (Thyroid Disorder)

I workout first thing in the morning before work. I am broke so instead of affording a nutritionist I have been studying a ton of diets and using some intuition (which I hope pays off), here is my latest attempt.

Well this is tough. Besides using Bodybuilding.com, there is not much except shear determination. I have 1 (yes 1) other person I know who trains their body. He keeps me going on days I feel lost. And I can always log on here to see other people's successes and losses and how they keep it balanced. And let's face it, my kids are the best motivator. I look at them and realize I do not want them to see their dad suffer from a triple bypass that almost killed him like I did...
Otherwise I'd say I make motivation all around me. I see a slob walking down the street and I think " yeah go suffer some more under your own weight"... or I see a younger guy than me deal with self-inflicted health issues and I say "serves you right". Don't get me wrong, I'm not a total dick. I had my days when I was stupid too. But to be honest, I need to see that in others to remind me of where to stay away from. It keeps me focused. Think what you will, it's me.
I would suggest this to anyone though... you will only find the motivation that works for you. Don't be ashamed of it. Own it. Motivation is personal, make it stick.
