I did wrestling, swimming, and bodybuilding in high school (I did a show my senior year). I had previous been up to 210/215lbs @ 6 foot when I was 19 with all-time bests of
Bench: 275 or 225x8
I've fallen quite a ways due to inconsistency and just not focusing enough. I spent this summer doing some linear progression and have some strength now, but not where I once was. I'm currently weighing in at 193.4 lbs, am 21 years old, and probably couldn't bench 225. Bleh
I also recently got braces so eating has become somewhat problematic. I'm trying to maintain a schedule of eating so I have a plan that will get me eating regularly. This is not a cutting blog, but the past few months have seen me lose some bodyfat. I'm going to stick with Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 with healthy joints, flexibility, and strength gains as a focus. The plan is to do this for a year straight. No on-and-off bullshit. I'm in a swimming club at the University and I do that 4 days a week. Hopefully I'll be eating enough to offset that and be able to pack on some muscle. I'm taking a big course-load this semester in my senior year so I'm kept quite busy with schoolwork so my weight workouts are kept to 3 day a week.
I'll be posting my first two 5/3/1 workouts in subsequent posts with leg day coming in tomorrow.
