    Mickles - Journal Until 200 lbs.

    Hi, I'm new here and I've been lifting pretty inconsistently since sept 2009. I started at 6'1 130 lbs with Bench: 85 lbs Squat: 95 lbs Deadlift: 115 lbs. Started freshman year in college (engineering major) so I had a solid meal plan and gained some decent weight. Now i'm about 180 at the same bf%. And my lifts haven't improved as much as they should have in this period of time so i'll be logging here.

    I've done several programs: Starting Strength, 5x5, IA's spbr, 5/3/1. But my lack of consistency with eating enough has held me back and I know it.

    Thanks for reading.

    Lifts Now:
    Squat: 315 x 5
    Deadlift: 455 x 1
    Bench: Not sure

    Today's workout (I'm not really on a program just squat deadlift and press on certain days I feel comfortable)

    Deadlift
    135 x 5
    225 x 3
    275 x 3
    315 x 3
    345 x 2
    375 x 1 (Everything was speedy until here)
    395 x 1
    415 x 1
    435 x 1
    455 x 1 (PR)

    Incline Bench
    135 x 2 x 7
    155 x 5
    165 x 7 (PR)

    Have some back and maybe more pressing on saturday

    Today was pretty good. I finally got a blender so i tested the whole blending: 2 cup oats, 2 cups whole milk, 2 scoops whey, 1 banana, 2 tbsp PB. Dunno how many cals/protein but it should be enough

    Incline Bench (Feels better than flat bench, my arch and tightness that is)
    185 x 6 (PR)
    165 x 3 x 3
    165 x 5

    Db Rows
    90 x 8
    105 x 10

    Pendlay Rows
    155 x 5
    175 x 5

    Chinups (Did these throughout my whole workout)
    BW x 5 x 10

    Some tricep work

    Hey, strong lifting man. Are you mainly focusing on strength gains?

    Thanks a lot! And I'm more interested in gaining size than strength, but I learned that with strength comes size at my height and weight.

    I dislocated my shoulder unfortunately around mid march so i stopped lifting. Literally just started back again today.

    Squats
    225x5
    235x5
    245x5

    Incline BB
    135x5
    145x8

    Pullups
    BWx10x3

    With muscle memory and linear progression I should be at my old numbers in a few weeks. Thanks for stopping by my log i'll check out yours
