    Default New to the sport.

    I am 45 and have a back ground in power-lifting. I recently came back from almost a 3 year break. I have been lifting since mid January trying to get back to where I once was as far as strength goes.

    Lately I have been thinking a lot about bodybuilding and what the sport has to offer any of us.

    Are there any recommendation on starting? Is there any information that i may provide in assistance with helping me on this?

    Thank you for your time and look forward to designing a workout program and nutrition diet plan with everyone here.

    Hey Rigdon

    You can find a lot of information here in forums and many to help you get started, etc.

    Start a training journal, ask questions and get back to it.

    Tell us what you're doing now, your diet and I am sure members will chime in.

    as of right now i am in the beginning stages of making a workout routine. diet wise thats a work in progress. for me i would like to get the workout finished and taken care then the diet part set-up. I was thinking of trying the MUTANT mass diet but not sure if thats what i need at this point and time.

    Anyone know as to where i could look for a beginners guide to bodybuilding? the hardest thing for me is going to be going from powerlifting mode to bodybuilding.

    I am bit confused because there is a big gap of about 3 years. Its hard to control the situation. But all the best!

    Respectfully at 45 years of age and with a powerlifting background I think all you would need is a full length mirror in your bedroom to start. Try looking at Johnie Jackson for tips . I'm sure his YouTube videos could help. Good luck.

    What is it that you need help with?? At 45, powerlifter, 3 year break, i would say with all due respect, your out of shape, unless round is the shape your after?

    Start with conditioning, get on the stairs for 20-30-40 minuets, put on your hoodie, and sweat.

    Then , you will do theses body parts
    Back , pull up’s
    Chest, bench press
    Bicep, barbell curl
    Tricep, rope pulldowns
    Legs, squats
    Calves , calf extensions

    4 sets each body part, Stick to 12-15 rep range, 1 min rest between set. TIME THAT SHIT!!!

    That’s your start,

    Now what will you eat?
