Hey everyone, I'm getting back into lifting after a very long time off. I'm looking forward to losing some fat, gaining some muscle, and getting as powerful as possible. I feel like I could lose 20 lbs of fat and be pretty lean. I'd like to gain about that much muscle mass, so I'd like to stay around 210 lbs just get much leaner and stronger.

Age: 26
Height: 6'
Weight: 211

I worked up to a 1 rep max tonight for bench press.

135 x 10
185 x 4
225 x 1
235 x 1
245 x 1
255 x 1
265 x fail

In the long run I have 3 main goals I would like to hit. A 315 lb bench, a 405 lb squat, and a 500 lb deadlift. For now, I'll set my bench press goal as 280 by september 4th, giving me 60 days to gain 25 lbs on my max. I'll set my squat and deadlift goals tomorrow after I set my PRs for each lift. Thanks for stoppin in, and hopefully this journal gets much more impressive as time passes.
