my journal. im going to keep this one because i have an internet connection that isnt going to go away after 3 months again...
18 years old
body fat % = ?
bench 1rm = 300 touch and go 285 competition
squat 1rm = 405 atf.
deadlift = i have no access to that for a while, havent done it in months
changes: i only squat atf anymore. i think my next meet (december) i will go atf there too since it will be my first meet in over 8 months. bench is finally moving up at a decent pace. no more 5lbs a month thank God.
background info: started jan 2004. i squatted 315parallel, benched 200 or so, deadlifted almost 400 at my peak last april i squatted 515 for a single, benched 285 competition, and deadlifted 535 competition. i then took 3 months off after bombing out on squat at high school nationals. i was so mad at myself i wanted to quit lifting. so i have been squatting again for about 3 weeks and im only at 405 but after 4 weeks my bench is back to where it was. i can no longer deadlift though, only rdl's etc... (i lift in my garage and cant crack the cement lol)
also, when i was lifting all those big numbers, i was at a BW of 230. i would starve myself for a few days to make 220 weight class. (smart i know) when i quit lifting for 3 months i dieted down to 180 and now i weigh 200 even but can bench 300 again. i need to get my squat back up, and build my hammies up enough so i can start deadlifting again at a decent weight.
the midwest senior states is in december about a week before i turn 19. last year i went and took 2nd place, lost to a 34 year old. my goal this year isnt to win, but just crush all my old pr's (and do it raw) and show all those old folk what an 18 year old can do.
pics: only have a couple, and they arent your normal pics. as you can see, my legs have suffered. my back is doing decent because i can actually do pullups now, 10 in fact. compared to my old max of 1. arms are just growing faster than ever before.
