Well this is acually the 2nd log I have but I figured I might be able to get some good info from others on here. Ok about me is i'm 13, 14 in 2 weeks I weigh 140 have been lifting on and off for 2 years been lifting seriously for 6 months. I have gained around 30 lb. since june I am 5'6" and am very serious about getting bigger and stronger. I play football as my main sport also do track to help with speed and do tennis competitivly but not my main sport. Stats:
Squat ATG: 155 (did 165 but critiqued form again haven't tried above 155)
The Bench and deadlifts are very recent happy about the 1 and 2 plates. Currently doing a split I made where I hit each muscle twice a week, Likely to swich soon. Will take constructive (or non if you really want) critisisim or any advice my ears are open as I have alot to learn!
Gonna be doing some heavy (for me) squats today probably around 175 probably 2-3 reps not really sure trying to get used to some higher weights so I can max before I turn 14.
Pretty good workout soon i'll be ready to max.

Ok this was yesterday:
2x175 <--Kept deep the ones 2 days ago with 185 were barely below parallel
2x150 probably gonna try to do same thing with 155 don't know if I can get 2..
Missed 245 I warmed up bad i'm not used to warming up for 245 I know I can get it.
Goals for december 31st (b-day)
Squats:200-205 this might be hard though haven't really gone above 185
missx165 (figured i'd try)
4x135 so I felt like I acually did something.
Gonna do squats and deads later today maybe tomorrow still working up to maxes on dec 31. Tri still hurts but I don't think I made it worse.
While it's much better then what many other newer guys do, do you only squat, bench, and deadlift? I'd suggest maybe adding in a few extra exercises here and there, mainly the OH press.
Also, to do the big three, HEAVY every single workout isn't the best idea, because in a short amount of time you won't be recovering properly once the weight gets too heavy.
You might want to work on a better split in the future, but good work on your progress so far.
