Alright guys, it's now or never. Allow myself to introduce....myself. I'm Andrew, I'm 17 5'11 165lbs. About a year ago, maybe a lil more, I was 5'10 240lbs. I've lost quite a bit of weight, but I lost a lot of muscle along with it. About two months ago I decided to join the gym. I started...
So, yesterday i started training westside. i'm definetely still learning and reading. i don't go to school or work right now, so i'm hoping to progress fairly quick, learn, and see some decent strength gains. i'll post my weight and height later tonight, after i weigh myself at the gym. yesterday i...
I love everyones advice here so though I should post my work-outs!
I believe a strong mind is key to reaching your goals.
I love all types of lifting but my focus is on benching big weights, I have turned my worst lift into my best.
I have competed in a lot of sports...
Just to give you guys some background information on myself, I have competed amateur and pro from the 220's to the SHW's. I used to compete full meet, but ruptured two discs in my back which caused me to be a bench specialist (well, for the most part). I once held the all time 275 record and my...
Figured I'd start a new journal here. I have a meet in just over 2 weeks(Feb 14th). I have been maintaining my bodyweight at right around 153 for the past 6 weeks or so and I will compete @148 and hopefully rehydrate back up to at least 153. My goal is to squat 600+ and total Elite. Here are a...
Hey guys, I'm starting my very first journal so feel free to leave me a post whenever you visit. I'd appreciate all of the criticism and tips you guys might have. I'm 16 years old, 141 lbs, and 5'7". My goals are primarily to get stronger, but I am also trying to gain as much lean body mass as I...
After a couple years of really crappy curl jockey training, I finally found this site, and got my act together. The date I registered, just a little over a year ago, was the day I started my new lifestyle, with the help of all of you. 'Could go on with a crappy long story, but I'll cut to the...
Alright so I'm starting a new journal because my training has moved to a whole other level this past year my old journal had some newbie workouts in it clear back from when I was in high school haha.
I am Currently on west side for skinny bastardsV.3 slightly modified to more advanced to...
I did a meet this weekend, so I'll start my log with that. I train in my garage with other lifters that I coach. I basically steal ideas from Westside and Super Training (even have the same training days as them) and add things to it based on our weaknesses. We video all of our workouts, and...
Hoping to go 2500 before this year is out.
Right, here goes.
Been training the last six months, but only at home and with little space, equipment or idea, except that squats, deads and benches are good.
Joined a local gym (bargain student price) and today was my first time down there. Left my mrs to do her cardio on the bikes and I...

Here we go, it's a new year with some new goals, so why not start a new journal. I've decided to skip the BMC once again. They changed the date from March 24th to March 10th and it sort of threw me off guard. So now i'm just going to start 531 and train to get strong.
i never done this before so ill give it a shot and try my best to keep this updated. current background stats as of 5/10/07:
Weight: 195lb give or take a pound
Experience: 2 years
Style of training: PR's/powerlifting/getting big
Best bench: 275lb/315lb shirted
I am straying a bit, so I don't want to keep a journal under the title of DC training. For those who have been following my other journal, you will see what I mean after a few entries and should be able to figure out what I am doing. The routine is still very inspired by...
Havent posted in a while. Been lazy with the training because me and my missus have been focusing on sorting out our new house which has caused diet to go to rubbish aswell, being unemployed doesnt help either, but from now on gonna start back hard and heavy. Planning to start some mixed martial...
I often get asked how I train. I train very much based on how I feel, so that is a hard question to answer sometimes. I do have set days but my actual workouts very. If I have a competition coming up I have my way of peaking, but even that changes. It will change from meet to meet, as I change, my...

I have been reading Wannabebig for a few years now and decided I would post up a training journal over here.
I train mostly for powerlifting and strongman. Currently, I am doing 5-3-1 with great success.
The name is Rob. This is my training journal. It contains a combination of letters and numbers to document feats of strength.
Beginning a new log, kind of a bad time because I am feeling beat up at the moment and will look to deload in a couple of weeks but oh well. Current supplements are Results,Protein,Fish oil and Flax seed oil. I was involved in powerlifting about 12-15 years ago and stepped away due to life and kids...
Alright, I figured it's about time I started a journal on here.
24 (25 this month)
14% BF (estimate)
Training for the 2010 USAPL PA States most likely.
Typically follow a Westside-style routine to increase GPP and to increase raw lifts immediately following a meet. Then start to increase intensity on lifts that will help the equipped 3 lifts. Then peak with a modified Sheiko CMS/MS routine. ...

With new goals and a fresh training regime I figured it was a good time to make a fresh start with the journal too.
Recently I cut weight to get back into the 83kg (183lbs) class and am now sitting at that mark with the goal to be to cut the body...
Beginning journal ended in 2007. Has restarted as of March 2011. Last page is the beginning of the current Crossfit portion.
Well due to several reasons ive fallen out of the competition i was going to enter. Now my plan is to do a lean bulk until late july or august when i should be shipping off to basic. My plan for this bulk is to take in around 4000 calories and around 200 grams of protein. My workouts will be...
Hey guys, this is my first post! I've been keeping a private log for a while, and I recently started a log on a different site. It seems that more people on this website are interested in powerlifting and natural lifting than the other one though, so I'm going to start posting here!
Here are my...
I've never done one of these things so I figured maybe it'll help me hold myself accountable if it's out there on the web. Today I started the 531 program. My goals are to get stronger, plain and simple. I'm new to all of this, so if anyone happens to read this and see something I'm doing...
coming over to this board since fortified-iron.com seems to have **** and fell back in it. i guess this is home now for training and such. here are some catch up training posts for me training for the powerstation pro-am in a couple weeks.
raw squats up to 375

Hey! I've been training for about a year and a half (after nearly 10 years of inactivity in over 20 years as a nuclear submariner) and this journal is mainly to help me keep track of progress whilst (hopefully) motivating me to push harder!
In the 1st year of training I put on about a stone of...
So I saw that Jim Wendler released a new version of 5/3/1 and with the holidays and work ive been looking for something simpler and shorter for my training so I decided to finally give it a shot.
I usually am not one for set programs so im probably going to stray a bit on the accessory work, but...

Numbers as of March
Bench PR 195lbs
Squat PR 250lbs
Deadlift PR 275lbs
Bench PR 265lbs
I guess im back again guys. I need to keep a log of my training because things have been a little rocky. Good to be back. This time im going to stay longer then 2 months lol.
Quick background of whats been going on. My last meet went ok, i pulled an easy 650 but a narrow miss at 670. Been...
I am a big fan of the 5/3/1 routine, will try out this revised version that Jim Wendler posted earlier this year, looks very interesting and fun :drooling:
It is done 4 days per week, and three cycles...
I been keeping a journal on FI but, that place seems to have caught internet AIDS, so I'm stalking Tone and came here. Been lifting almost 10 years, and have done 3 powerlifting meets. last one was oct 10. I lift using 5/3/1 triumvirate, most of my training is focused on on fighting though. I train...
