So I’ve been reading these logs for a while now and I figured I’d post my own. It’ll only help me improve what I’m doing and if anything you guys can critique anything you see that may not be optimal.
Little bit of backstory, I’m 18 and I graduated last year. I played football in high school for four years and my dad taught me the basics so I had some lifting experience before I got really serious. Being in high school I never really took lifting seriously, although for my size and body type I was decently strong (I’m 6’3, skinny, with really long arms and legs). I actually hold a record for the power clean for the football team (165lb clean at under 150lb body weight for Junior year).
About August of last year I really began to hit the weights hard and watch my nutrition, also about the same time I began lurking here. Since then I’ve jumped from a body weight about 148, to 185. I just recently started keeping a journal of my lifts about 3 weeks ago, because I thought I could keep track of everything in my head (I was deluding myself, I know). Since then I’ve already gone up on my lifts quite a bit.
So for my lifts today. I’m working with a Push/Pull/Legs/Off setup right now. Just started it about a month or so ago. Today was Leg day.
255x4 (nearly fell on number four, didn’t push any further)
Seated calf raise 5x10
Standing calf raise 5x10
135x10 for all 5 sets
Hack Squats 3x10 (it was a big slanted machine so I’m not sure how to gauge the weight, I’m putting the total amount of weight I added to the actual bar)
Hamstring curls 3x10 (I tend to rush these so I was making sure to really take these slow)
Leg extensions 3x10 (once again, I tend to rush these and use my arms to hold my body down, so I’m focusing on taking it slower and using good form)
I didn’t feel as good about this workout as I normally do. The gym was cramped and I had to wait around a few times for specific areas to clear.
Thanks for reading.
