Hey guys and gals!
So I am another one that has been skulking around this site for the past three years and have finally sucked up the courage to make a post.
A bit of history:
When I was younger (6-14 years old) I did gymnastic before moving on to other stuff like Netball, Basketball, Athletics, Cross Country (forgive me), Swimming, and finally rugby. Got to play to national level back home, but have kind of been out of it since being at university.
Sadly, the university rugby team is rubbish, so I got really into hitting the gym. Did a NASM PT course last summer, and In September I did the V-Diet Intermediate programme, and am just finishing up the Advanced programme.
I'm 5 foot 4, 124lbs, and 21 years old.
Here are my most recent numbers from the programme:
DL: 220lbs x 8
Push Press: 88lbs x 8
Pull ups (neutral grip): BW x 8
Squat: 132lbs x 8
close grip bench: 105lbs x 4
Looking forward to testing out my new 1rms after this programme. My DL record was 286lbs but I am really hoping to get it up to 310 by July! Also want to work on my benching which seems to be severely lagging behind - I used to be one of those fools that was all worried about my upper body!
The numbers may seem a little funny - I work in kgs so have just converted them over.
Oh and the topic title - I am half Asian (grew up there) and half American represent!
Looking forward to becoming more active here with all you inspiring people!
