This will be my first log. I have taken notes of training and diet in the past but no real, thorough log book. I’m going to keep training and diet info here.
I started playing football in grade 12 at age 17 (2009), i had zero playing time but started working out. prior to this i had very little athletic ability or experience aside from soccer in grades 1-4, which i also sucked at. i played football during the summer on a local team, when i returned to high school for a 5th year (2010) i started at right guard and inside linebacker, played on all specials teams, and at the end of the season i was awarded the coaches award (dedication, leadership, etc) and the most improved player award, but missed the first team all city by 1 vote at both positions. currently I’m 19, in university studying kinesiology, i coach the senior linebackers at my high school, and I’m on the defensive practice squad for my local CJFL team. I haven’t worked out consistently since fall november of 2010, i did maintain a fair bit of my strength, but put on a lot of fat since then. in the last 3 weeks I’ve got back into the lifting game my current stats are listed bellow.
*all measurements are impereal unit (foot, inch, pound)
lift / previous pr / curent lifts / goals: jan/1/12
dead lift: 415x4 / 365x1x2 / 450x1
squat: 365x2/ 315x1 / 375x1
BB bench: 315x1 / 225x2 / 315x1
OHP: 165x1/ not sure/ 180x1
clean: 185x5/ 155x2/ 225x2+
C&P: 145x5x5/ not sure/ 155x5x5
40y: 4.9/ 5.4/ <4.9
BF: 20% / 25+ % ? / 18%
let me know what you think of these goals.
strength gain and fat loss, i believe i will lose a lot of the fat just by starting to lift again. i want to accelerate better, be faster, more explosive.
Right now i don’t have a gym to work out in, free membership at the university but transportation is an issue, free workouts at the high school, but getting there while its unlocked is an issue. don’t really want to pay for the generic gym around the corner. As of right now i do not have a workout schedule or a diet plan, shame on me, to come asap any input is highly appreciated, my workouts have always been centred around a few sets of singles, doubles and triples, occasionally up to 8 - 15, of the big compound lifts, with assistance work much less frequent. I’m starting this log as a tool to get my self serious and on a schedule again.
once more, any insight from you guys is likely greatly appreciated.
