Thought of creating an online training log in order to keep track of my progression, nutrition and get positive criticism. Currently weighing 177lbs,5'7 tall and 15-17% Body fat.Goals are 1)Strength 2) Hypertrophy 3)Fat loss (Strength given top priority)

Current training program is Wendler's 5/3/1 (Starting 4th cycle next week)

PR records
325lbs SQ
230lbs BP (approximate)
390lbs DL
160lbs Clean and Press (No jerk)

Training for 3 years (Though I took a 4 month hiatus and first year I didnt know what on earth I was doing)

My long-term goals (February 2013) are 430lbs SQ and 500lbs DL (RAW). That would be a florida state record for 181lbs class :hump:

Working on my nutrition since I'm carrying some extra fat and if I lose 10lbs, my relative strength (bw to max weight ratio) would improve.

Deload week:

BP
140x3
160x3
185x3
160x3
140x3

The way I'm deloading is by doing (65%,75% and 85%)... going to pyramid down top set in order to get more volume work in. Bench SUCKS so bad its not even funny.

Pull-ups 7-7-7-8-5

DB rows 3x10 (70lbs)
DB Incline Press 5x8-12 (55lbs)

Triceps push-downs (drop set) and 20 minute power walk

Experienced a little elbow discomfort but it must be because I'm out of fish oil... whenever I dont take them, I get slight joint pain.

Nutrition is a bit better, i'm down to 176lbs and counting.... going to rest till monday.

DE
Clean and Jerk 115lbs (6x2) Will probably remove them...
Explosive squats 5x3 (160lbs) 50% of Max + red bands (70lbs of tension) probably will add more band tension.
BB Rows 3x10-8-5 (155lbs)

Strongman training (Right after DE)
Log Press 5x3 (110lbs) Shit is hard.

Then 3 rounds (~40 meters)
A1) Farmer's walks (110lbs per hand)
A2) Yoke carry (345lbs)
A3) Keg carry (75lbs)

First time trying strongman training but I like it.
