Here is a journal I plan on keeping. Its been a month since I tore a muscle in my back on a set of SLDL's. It is almost better. I did some VERY light squats on Friday with 135lbs, my back didn't bother me at all. I am going to take this week easy, then next week ease back into things SLOWLY. I messed up my back 2 weeks ago, by stupidly deadlifting 405. I thought my back was all better, but on the second attempted rep, I felt a VERY uncomfortable stretch, and it was stiff for the next few days. It hasn't bothered me at all for the past few days.
My diet has been working great. I have lost 13lbs with no loss in strength. I am down at 220 from 233. It is mostly High protein, moderate Carbs, and semi low fat, and I eat 6 meals a day. The only cardio I do is jog for 30 minutes in the morning once or twice per week.
My routine is going to be part westside/part olympic lifting. I have no idea on any maxes since it has been about 5 weeks since I have done squats or DL's. My bench is still 280-295.
Wednesday- ME Bench Press
Friday- Squats/Leg Assistance
Saturday- DE Bench Press
I recently measured myself. I am not a bodybuilder, but I just thought I would give you an idea of my size.
