About Me
My name is AJ. I'm a 19 year old college freshmen, majoring in nursing. Oh, and I like to lift weights :D

I lift by myself at a local commerical gym (yawn). I'm currently 175 lbs - and my best lifts are 225/165/350.

I have minor shoulder impingement. Because of this, I proceed with caution and bench with a narrow grip.

My Goals
Overall awesomeness :)

I don't want to specialize in one area - I want an even distribution of all. I want to be strong, lean, jacked, fast and most importantly - healthy.

Short term goals are to focus on getting progressively stronger while tightening up a bit.

Shoot, this is where I suck..haha.

3000 calories sound good right now. 225 grams of protein is a must. Trying to cut out all the junk. Everything else is just fluff.

Since beach season is approaching ;) - one day of sprints/car pushing - one day of LISS a.k.a old woman cardio.

That's about it. Let's see if I can get some people in here - or I'll just keep talkin to myself :clown:

My first workout will be Overhead Pressing on Monday.
