Hello all, It's time I started a journal to keep track of my progress. My training partners (bjohnso & MihialikPJ) are both on this forum, so I figured I would join in. As the title implies my current goal is to hit a 1220 total (315 bench/405 squat/500 dead). My current total is 1005 (265/315/425). I've been training for about 2 years, but just in the last 4-5 months focused on strength instead of size. Im about 6' and 250-255 with prob 16-18% BF, if anyone wants to know.

Well tonight is back and hopefully I'll have the numbers up sometime tommorow.

Nice deadlifting. You were so close to locking out that 425.

I don't know if I'll be able to squat on Sunday. My shoulder feels a little bit better, but I don't know if I want to risk it.

It's agrivated from back when we were working on that project for DME. I don't know what it is that's doing it - I think it may be front squats or face pulls, maybe barbell benching. I'll try to avoid those for a while.

I took the opportunity to finally take this cutting business seriously - it always takes an injury to do that. I have to control over something, and if I can't lift weights, then I'll work on getting lean, so at least I am accomplishing something. Protein and fats are high, I'm getting less than 100g of carbs a day with about 2800 calories, and I feel like crap, lol.

I seriously need to rethink my training for my next bulk (more legs).

I still don't know if I want to attempt squatting on Sunday. I'm itching to get back into the gym.

Yeah, I thought I'd change it up some, I'll prob just go to bodymasters because I can't really get there any earlier. School is soooo much fun, huh
