    The Time is Now - My Journey to 180lbs

    Alright!

    The time is now! Today is the start of my new short term...ish goal, to weight 180lbs by the time I go on my lads holiday - 29th September. I've deceided with this new goal a new routine is needed, so I've decided to revert back to basics and I'm going to try Mark Rippetoe's routine. I'm sure most of you know what this is, here is my slightly modified version.

    Workout A

    3x5 Squat
    3x5 Bench Press
    1x5 Deadlift
    2x8 Weighted Dips
    CGBP?

    Workout B

    3x5 Squat
    3x5 Standing Military Press
    3x5 Bent Barbell Rows
    2x8 Weighted Chin-ups
    Curls

    The only thing that bothers me is the 1 set of deadlifts, not sure why this is?

    Anyway, I'll be starting tomorrow with my Monday - Wednesday - Friday routine, and since it's Wednesday, I'll be starting with workout B!

    For future reference, my current stats are:

    Height: 6'-6'1" | Weight:160lbs

    Bench: 176.4lbs x 5
    Squat: 187.4lbs x 2
    Deadlift: 264.6lbs x 5

    Today is an off day, but it's Tuesday which means football (soccer) for me. I have two 1hr games 5 then 6 a side, which is pretty tiring and burns a lot of calories! Just making sure I've had plenty to eat today.

    Today has been a funny day because of a short day at uni then playing football at dinner time, so eating was a bit off, thought I'd post what I've had so far:

    Breakfast: Coco Pops, 1 x Nuttella Sandwhich

    Early Lunch:
    1 roll N links

    Lunch: 1 scotch pie

    Late Lunch: 1 roll n slice sausage + cake

    Early Dinner: toast and scrambled eggs - 2 slices of toast and 2.5 eggs.

    Dinner: two pork chops with chips

    Not exactly the healthiest of foods today...

    Wednesday's Workout

    I hurt my ankle on Tuesday playing football again, so was unable to squat

    Wednesday

    Bench Press: 3 x (5 x 170.9)
    Deadlift: 1 x (5 x 253.6)
    Weighted Dips: 2 x (8 x BW + 44.1)

    Felt good, I have more in me with all of my lifts, progressing each week. Pretty funny, while deadlifting I head a huge RIIIIP! Checked my trousers and I had a huge rip down my arse, finished my workout with my boxers showing through!
