This is the first training log I will be taking seriously. Im just starting the anabolic diet, and will be using that to lose anywhere from 15-20 pounds. Im currently doing a push-pull-legs split. My stats so far are as follows. (all in lbs)

Bench- 290
squat-345
deadlift-500
push press- 250
front squat-300

im 17 years old, 6 ft, and about 205 lbs.

push

rack was taken and i didn't feel like cleaning the weight because of really sore traps, so i just did some light db shoulder presses.

Dips.

dropped to 30, did 30 reps each side, alternating ever 10 reps, but one straight set.

light tricep work, and that's that, time for a couple days off.


#8

My training has been going fairly well lately, but if I want to break some state records for powerlifting (hey, i live in RI, its quite possible) Then i really need to step up my squat and bench training. Im going to be going back onto 5/3/1 to try and get a low 300's bench and low 400's squat. Hopefully once i continue working on technique, my squat will start to push even higher. I will be doing more of a body part split than what I have been doing lately. Soon, I will be able to post footage of my training as well.


#9

Last 2 workouts.

Deadlift. 7/5/11
this was just a workout to see what my max deadlift was for 531. i went to 525 and missed it right above the knees, so i will be using 90 percent of 500 for my max. after that i just did some light back work.

Bench. 7/6/11

Flat BB bench.
135x5
185x5
205x5
225x10 not bad, now that I will be benching weekly instead of my usual slacking on it, i want to hit 315 pretty soon.

db bench
30x10
70x5
90x5
100x5
80x8
