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...
Use to be over at FI but seems its gone now, so ima try and keep up with some of this again. Been awhile since ive been online with a log. Mainly just focusin on bench lately but started squattin again and pull again soon. Heres the last few i remember.
Well then... i have to keep a journal somewhere... and at this point i cant even tell if my posts on the other forum are even there... so i'll start a temporary journal here. Might just turn into a permanent one. It was either here or at Pendlay forum, and though i AM a weightlifter before i am a...
Beginning journal ended in 2007. Has restarted as of March 2011. Last page is the beginning of the current Crossfit portion.
New guy here, thought I'd introduce myself and get a log going.
I'm an amateur raw powerlifter... done three meets so far, and my meet PRs are 455, 270, and 500. Those were all from October 2011-January 2012... I haven't done a competition since then, for some pretty poor reasons. ...

Ok...since this forum is populated by some of the baddest/strongest MFers on earth, I'll start keeping a log here, just to lower the overall stats and maybe get some useful advice.
Since I'm from Europe, all weights will be in kilos, ok?
Let's recap (single ply gear # in brackets):
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...
I have started this log because I need your help....
In the past, I have done sloppy bulking, bad routines, and gotten nothing but fat and weak...
THIS TIME FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.
I am requesting your input and advice as I go along this journey ..If I plateau or stall, I...

So the new log begins...
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...
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...
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...
Not really sure how to start, so I'll start with a little background.
Since March 2009, I had one goal in mind, and that was to get my life back to happy. I didn't even know what happy was, but I was about 500 lbs with practically zero muscle on me and at that point I just wanted to die. Instead...
Hi everyone! I have been lurking around the site for a bit and really want to make a log and join the diverse group of lifters posting here. A little about me:
Weight: 110-113 note: I have competed twice in the 114 class and now plan to cut weight to 105 for my April 2013...
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...

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...
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...
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...
Pretty new to this forum. I've spent the last 3 or so years working out, the first 18 months or so pretty regularly, got my strength up to a decent point. Last 18 months I trained maybe 2x/week, switched routines a bunch of times, rehabbed a couple of niggling little injuries, and...
