6'1 280 lbs.
~5 years training ( 5 months serious training )
This will be my journal to track my progress over the months to hopefully being competition ready next spring. I reside in Tampa, Florida and plan on competing earliest possible 2013.
Typical split (as of 7/23)
Mon + Thurs: Chest, tris, shoulders
Tues + Fri: Legs, back, core
Currently maintaining weight. Just recently bulked (DIRTY) from 240 to 280.
Goals (as of 7/23):
1. Increase deadlift which has always been my weakest link
2. Get a gym membership somewhere with a squat rack... my gym only has a smith machine and I refuse to use it.
3. Be ready to compete at an amateur level (and win) by early 2013.
I've stalked this site and these forums for a little over 5 years now and tried two other journals. Work with me here as I actually succeed in keeping up a journal.
Diet: try to eat 3-4 solid meals a day. Usually end up overeating at night lately. Bad habit I haven't yet dropped from my bulking.
Supplements: Each morning I take fish oil, green tea extract and a multivitamin. Other than that it's just some sort of pre-workout and then whey protein after workout.
