    Dropping a log - TJM's deadlift log!

    I'm fairly new here, I think I'll start a log.
    age- 19
    height - 6'2
    weight - 260
    experince - 1.5 years
    Deadlift goal - 700lbs by summer 08.
    I'm a bodybuilder who dabbles in powerlifting. For my 1st year of training I had no gym membership. I mainly just benched and deadlifted in my garage no sqauts cause I had no rack just a bench a bar and some DBs, in fact, I did no legs other then what I got from my deads and SLDLs. I progressed a lot just doing those movements though. I went from 150lbs @ 6'2 to 260lbs. My max incline bench was 315 and my record for deadlifts was 500x6. Recently (as in december of 2007) I finally joined a gym but unfortunatly torn my pec and have been recovering from that ever since. So, for the past 2 1/2 months I been concentrating on becoming a better deadlifter and squater. I've finally been able to train legs with sqauts and all the nifty leg machines!
    I'll start this log to track my progress and get opinions / suggestions on what I'm doing.
    How I train:
    I do whatever I feel will help me. I take into consideration westside methods, stuff I've read from Stefán Sölvi and observed from watching powerlifting vids. You'll see a mix of bodybuilding and powerlifting.
