Hey my name is Alex and i have lurked for a long time. When I first started reading the articles on T-Nation i only did three exercises. Bicep curls, lateral raises and a quarter squat sort of bench press.
I’d like to think after reading many many articles on this website and other research that i now have a fairly proficent knowledge on weight training.
At 6.4, 4 years ago i weighed about 160 pounds. Now 4 years later, 2 of those having consisted of serious training, i am the same height but not quite the same weight. I now weigh between 242-251 pounds with no leg muscle.
Overall i am to improve my bench from 308 for 1 to about 355-360 for 1 by december. I also want to get back into doing leg work. I have dislocated my knee 4 times + hyper extended it once requiring key hole surgery all in the space of 4 years.
All though my knee, bar a bit of instability, has been fine for a few months i have wussed out of training legs. Every time i try to train them my ego gets shot as i can only front squat 135 for 7-8 and 200 for 1. This log, i hope will get me to actually train my legs and stop bitching out.
I have experiment with a few workout variations and i am currently doing 3 month phase of an upper-lower split with no direct arm training.
I’m just going to post my figures as they hopefully gradually increase. I will start with todays workout…
