Decided to start a journal on here, I'll be posting my reps and weight for Squat and Bench. I'm too lazy to do any others :redface: I'll be doing 5x5 for 4 weeks, then 5x3, than 5x2, than I'll max out. Right now I bench 330x1, and squat 405x1. 12 weeks away from 40 pounds more on both lifts :D

Good luck with hitting your target of 40pounds:thumbup:. Is squating and benching ALL you do or all you are prepared to document in your journal??

No, I do a strange form of training called Function Dynamics that makes me a better athlete, I do a few other lifts but they're not worth documenting, I get most of my balance and symettry from function dynamics because their philosophy requires to hit your body from every angle possible and to work through full range of motion. Thanks for asking Franji. Oh yeah and for more info on function dynamics, just go to http://www.fucntiondynamics.com

DAMN 275 Saul? How tall are you man? Any idea what your bf% is?

02-04-2003, 09:15 PM
Squatted 385x3 today.
Monstar: I'm 6'4''. and my BF% is probably 15% around there. I play football, and that's why I lift for the most part, I am being looked at by Oregon State and a few other schools, so I really got to push it this season, being my senior season in highschool.

Damn nice bench and squatting strength Saul, keep up the hard work. You should really consider posting your entire workouts...

02-19-2003, 07:11 PM
light bench day,
Monstar: My whole lifting workouts are massive and hard to keep track, because I only do the major lifts plus lat pull down, curls, and calf raises. The reason is because at function dynamics we do so much lifting and strange exercises to totally balance your body out and make your strength and cooridination in complete balance. by the way thanks for the compliment :)

I know this journal's for your personal info, but more detail would be cool (if you have the time), just so we can get some idea of exactly what you're doing as you make your progress. :)

(Helps out newbies who might wanna follow your example, too)

I was sick from Thurday on. I still am sick and I had to go to a recruiting clinic and show off my stuff, no pun intended. I got good reviews, washington state likes my style. I was sick during the whole time but not as bad during the earlier part of the week, but still had trouble breathing right, I'll post my stuff tommorow.
