Hi,
So fellow Skimblers can kick my ass if I get too lazy, here is my story ....
Over 10 years I'd gone from a kick-boxing, gym twice a day, health nut to an overweight (224lbs at my heaviest & I'm 6'1), unhappy man in denial of how unhealthy I was until a holiday last year in the Domincan Republic. I'd done a bit of exercise and thought ' I look OK ' as I stepped on to the beach.... Until I saw the holiday photos !! In disgust I set about sorting myself out !!
I started slowly building my cardio up to move away from the weight-lifting I used to do before starting HIIT training 6 days a week in December...
I'm now at 200lbs and have signed up for a Tough Mudder event in September.
My target weight is 170-180 lbs and a body fat percentage of 14-17% ( it was 28% last year ! )

YOUR MISSION SKIMBLERS .. If you choose to accept it .. IS TO KEEP ME GOING !!!!!!!

Moving into the next phase of my journey! 

I've started lifting much heavier than I used to,  utilizing drop-sets & a mixture of high weight/low rep - low weight/high rep programs.
From time to time I'll throw in a crossfit day to mix it up. 

Loving the gym life now & can't believe I lost it for a decade of my life!!!!!!!!

Drop sets and mixing high reps and low reps is my favorite way to train
