Ok everyone, I’m getting an accountability log going on. Here’s my situation and goals, both long and short term:
Short term situation: I will be studying abroad in Kuwait for the next three weeks. During this time I have no access to a weight set, and I’m bunked in a hotel.
Short term goal: Improve my Army Physical Fitness Test score from a 275 to as close to a 300 as I can get, emphasizing the 2-mile run and maxing my pushups. Here’s an outline;
Run time - current: 13:39
Run time - goal: 13:00
Pushups - current: 65
Pushups - goal: 80+
Test is the first week back to class in January, sometime around the 10th or 12th.
Long term situation: Full access to university gym, extra $ for supplements via the National Guard. LDAC in the summer, for those in the know.
Long term goal: Attain a 300 ASAP. Afterward, begin Rippetoe’s SS approach to build up a base and eventually hit a 1000lbs total in the big three while maintaining a 300 until post LDAC.
current DL: 275
current squat: 250
current BP: 155 (weak sauce, but I’m sacrificing #'s for pushup reps for now.)
Help me stay accountable, and I’ll post with my daily routine for the short term as I start. Feel free to yell and heckle if I start to slack in posting or #'s. Thanks.
