I have been wanting to make a training log on here for a while, and today I am going to go through with it. I have so many goals it's not even funny, and have no problem putting in the effort to reach them. Main goals are powerlifting oriented, 405 bench, 405 squat (or more would be great if my knees ill allow such things), and 600 Deadlift. I also would like to do some mini marathons like tough mudders, warrior dash, ect. I would like to compete in a strongman competition, and dunk a basketball. These are goals I have before I go 6 feet deeper than I am now, not goals for next week.
A little about myself. I am 22 years old, 181 pounds as of today, and 6' tall. Last maxes were (IIRC) 215 bench, 320 DL, 140 MP, and my squat (185x4) well that's explained here. http://www.wannabebig.com/forums/sho...38#post2565338
I never lifted a weight in high school and regret it more than anything now. I have been in and out of a gym for roughly a year and a half. Doing silly things with my friends. I have gained a lot of knowledge about supplements, training, diet, ect. I have been seriously training for about 9 months. I never weighed over 165 pounds until about 6 months ago. I didn't try to gain weight, because my gains were going up and didn't have much time to eat like I should. Since then I tried to put on some weight and gained almost 20 pounds in the blink of an eye.
My training for the past 9 months has fluctuated (mainly just seeing what routine I liked). I have tried the hepburn method, 5 3 1 (my favorite), and 5x5. Honestly the best routine I have found is not a routine lol. I have seen the best gains by going in the gym and saying "sure I'll do that toady". After this stop yielding gains I will get on 5 3 1 again. I may have left something out, but hopefully I will see it and rectify it. I will get my training from today up, and hopefully some pics tonight (looking for some now). Any questions fire away.
