It has been a while since I have posted in this forum but it’s a New Year and it’s time to maintain my training log for the year and to record the changes during the year as I forge ahead to get my bodyweight up to 182lbs. To put things in perspective I used to weigh 120lbs back in 2006 and after getting back into training in 2008 I have managed to build up to 154lbs at 12% body fat (weight and body fat as at time of Dexa Scan on 10 Jan 2012) but after sticking at this bodyweight for over a year now I have had enough and want to get to 182lbs at around 12% body fat. Quite ambitious I know but oh well what the hell I have nothing to lose so damn the torpedoes and steam straight ahead.
I will try and remember to put everything into pounds for you so it makes sense. I live in Sunny Australia so everything is in metric.
First week of Training Mon 9 Jan 2012 to Sun 15 Jan 2012.
Frickety Frack everything feels so frickety frackin heavy! What the hell! Did Henry add 20lbs to every weight plate in the gym while I had a week off? No seriously did he? What sort of cruel world do I live in where 2 weeks of inactivity and beer drinking are rewarded with sub standard performances in the gym – damn you Odin (shakes fist at sky). I shall have my revenge. Training sessions this week were a bit of a washout due to the unfavourable influence of Odin (Note – one of my New Year goals was never to blame anything on myself its always someone else’s fault – it’s a strangely liberating experience) and I only managed to do 308lbs for 3 reps on the Safety Squat Bar squat to a medium box and 120lbs of bar weight and 150lbs of chains for 3 reps on the floor press for my ME work and there wasn’t anything dynamic about my DE work. I won’t list my training sessions in detail this week unless you really want to see the excruciating detail. Well I hope the beginning of 2012 has been a bit more auspicious for you and I shall get back to you at the end of this week with a more inspirational tale of training. Odin shall smile kindly upon my training next week!Or more importantly I will get my act together get rid of the beer and Christmas cake next week
