Hey everyone ive been posting here for awhile, and i decided that the best way possible to record my results would to make a journal everyone can see. My name is Joe, I'm from Canada, im a junior in highschool and im sixteen years old. Ive been overweight since i was 8 years old. I was always a big kid, the tallest in my grade till grade 9. 2 years ago i weighed 185 pounds at 5.11 and benched 135x3 times, i stopped working out for a year and three-quarters and shot up to 245...i dont even know how. No idea what my body fat is, but its gotta be around 25-30% atleast (seem like a reasonable estimate to me). I will be as honest as i can be with all of you and myself, for i truly wish to improve, this is way past the point of being embarssed.
I have a few goals in mind, i want to become stronger for the sake of being stronger as well as football. I want to decrease my bodyfat to improve my relative body strength, as well as for aesthetic reasons. I want to improve my endurance, as well as my personal fitness scores. Specifically i want
Benchpress-Currently is 155x3 i want to be up to 200x3 by football which is in september
Squat 190-I dont know why this is so low, but i def want this to be way way up by football, dont know exactly what
Ill be looking at the deadlift later
12 minute run-Increase my laps around the track from 4 (yes that bad) to 5 and a half by the end of the semester.
sit ups in a minute-I am not sure what i am at now for this, i will update it in the next couple days when i do it. Whatever it is i want to dohalf again as much by the end of the semester. it will probably somewhere in the low 30s.
Chinup-Cant do a single one of these but i want to get up to 5 by the end of semester.
Sit and Reach-Want to go from 28cm to 40
Most important of any my goals i actually want to start on the football team this year. I will be practicing alot of football as well as getting my strength up as much as possible.
Routine and Diet
Im on WS4SB, monday is maxeffort upper, tuesday is dynamic lower, thursday i rep upper, friday is max effert lower. I think i am going to somehow incorperate GTG method into my off days. I am unaware of what how many calories i have been eating...i have been eating slightly less with more of what is left coming from tuna and lean chicken. Im def getting 200 grams of protein a day.
I have a friend, who actually has an account on here though he never comes on. His name is Stu and he has been beating me in all our lifts even though we started out really similar. He recently deadlifted 295 on his first time. he benches 175x3 and squats 225x3. Basically he is my rival and i am going to do all i can to beat him.
Ill post probably 5 times a week, thanks anyone that read this and comments (or not, thanks for reading anyway)
