    Olympic Weightlifting

    Hi guys, I decided to start a work journal for winter break. Man, college has really put the roll on me. I started out around 145lbs Freshman year. Currently a Junior, I've inflated to a plump 175lbs.

    Current State: 5'8" 175lbs.

    Short term goals: 170lbs. Realistically, I want to shed five lbs by the end of break (a one month period). I also want to gain a little strength back.

    Here is my regimen: Please ring in with any suggestion/comments.
    Everyday: Either run or ride my bike.
    Monday: Chest and triceps. Really heavy weight.
    Wednesday: Rows, Pull ups, Etc...
    Friday: Deadlift and power clean.
    Weekend: If I can find some equipment for Squats, I'll fit them in for the weekend.

    I'm going to stop eating at night. Also, I'm going to try to reduce my carbohydrate intake.

    Goals by the end of the month:
    Bench - 225lbs
    Squat - 275lbs
    Deadlift - 245lbs
    8 pullups.

    It's about time to put some Chinese pride back into the UMass weight rooms.

    Long term goals (end of the semester):
    Bench - 255lbs
    Squat - 315lbs
    Deadlift - 275lbs
    15 pullups.
    Fit into my size 32s again at 160lbs!

    I know they are pretty low numbers, but I'm just trying to be realistic. I'm a lazy person. Hopefully I can really get down to 160lbs.

    Sounds pretty reasonable. Deadlift might take some work. It's never been my strong point.

    Flat Bench: 155 x 6 (3 sets)
    Incline Bench: 135 x 6 (3 sets)
    Close grip: 105 x 8 (3 sets)
