I will start my log here as well. Some prior lifting experience, but more like on off.
It will be in kg, I am too lazy to change everything to lbs
19 years old
I just started my 2nd cycle of 5/3/1, have been training for ~ 6 weeks now.
calculated 1rm before 1st cycle:
OHP 43 kg
I train 4 times a week:
1.Week (just AMRAP sets)
Deadlift: 908 (+ 120kg1)
No deload week, because i couldnt train for a week in between w1 and w2.
Squat: 62.5 * 10 (kind of fixed breathing issues, very happy with the results)
Benchpress : 42.5 *5, 50 *5, 57.5 *7 (i am still trying to find my benchpress… does not really feel solid, first reps are kind of easy but then from one rep to the other I lose my strength, gotta to some reading I guess)
DB incline bp : 20 *10|10|8
db rows : 30 * 10|10 ; 28 * 10 (felt the biceps starting to take over much of the work, so I dropped the weight a bit)
standing db press 16* 8|8 ; 14 * 6 (used to do them one arm at a time with 18, I am gonna have to drop the weight a bit more though, feels kind of weird)
triceps cable extension 40 * 12|12|12
Till end of march at least, I dont want to have to set weights back. We will see how it goes. I am definitely highly motivated. I am trying to eat a lot, but it is kind of hard on my mind to always eat an other serving, even if I am not even hungry anymore. I always make to much food anyway.
short term goals:
work on benchpress technique
2x BW Deadlift 1. jan
other 3 lifts, I will first have to see how they develop
