5/3/1 for Ping Pong

It’s time to start a log so that I can keep track of what I’m doing. I’m currently in a fat loss phase. Week one. I’ve been training consistently for 4 years now. I don’t follow a program, but thinking of starting one.


HT: 5’8"
WT: 181
BF: ~15%
Bench: 275 x 3
Squat: 275 x 3 :frowning:
Dead: 405 x 3
OHP: 185 x 3


My main goal is to get my squat up. My problem is tightness in the hips/ hams. I’m currently doing 45+ minutes of mobility work. Just started this this week. Since I’m in a fat loss phase, My goal is 10% body fat by July 1st. Once I reach that then I will make another for 8%.

I will be logging cardio, weights, and nutrition/ supplementation.

Follow along!
