Hey guys. My buddy "one rep under" got me to join the other day and told me to start a journal, so here it is. A little background on me, I am 19 and I'm a sophomore in college. I wrestled for 7 years and now I do a little BJJ here and there. But I only started to lift at the beginning of freshman semester. I went from a slender 125lbs to a solid 135lbs by May. But I took the whole summer off . Now I am about 128lbs and I'm starting to lift again. I am following the SS program for now and we'll see how that goes. My goal is to get to around 140lbs and bench>160, squat>150, deadlift>150. These aren't really short or long term goals, just where I want to be sometime.
Sept 1 2009:
1st day back in gym in ~ 3 months. Doing Starting Strength.
Squat: 3x5 @ 115- got deep, felt good but will drop to 105 or 110 to start
Bench: 3x5 @ 125lbs-felt like 145lbs used to. Will prob drop to 110 to start
Deadlift: 3x5 @ 135- where I was before but did feel pretty heavy, will prob drop to 115 or so
I am currently using GNC 100%whey and when it's done I will be switching to ON100% or Nitrean, or possibly a weight gainer instead
Today was the 1st day the gym was open but I will be on a mon/wed/fri program from here on out. Feel free to comment/make suggestions
