    Connelly's bulking log

    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:
    Age:13
    Height: 5'6"
    Weight 140
    5RM's:
    Bench: 135
    Squat ATG: 155 (did 165 but critiqued form again haven't tried above 155)
    Deadlift:225
    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.

    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.
