View Full Version : My So-Called Journal

I am maintaining this journal primarily for strength training purposes and as such, body fat % and measurements are immaterial at this point. Diet will also be of somewhat secondary importance but I will be sure to get enough protein for my bodyweight. Goals include breaking the current powerlifting records in the squat, bench, deadlift by the summer of 2003. I will break these records by July 4th, 2003 or I will humiliate myself on this forum. I will not reveal the absolute horrors that I will commit against myself yet, suffice to say the self imposed psychological damage involved will be the likes of which I shall'nt ever recover. For my sanity, nay for the well-being (both physical & psychological) of all those around me, I MUST reach my goals!

For now, I will use a personalized modification of the old Rader Isometronic Training System. For superstitious reasons I ain't going to go into what I adapted from it (if you knew the majority'd think I was a quack anyway) but I will be detailing the basics as far as sets, reps, and weight here.
