Hey Everybody!

I am a 23 year old college student. I work full-time as a bartender, and I am married with my first kid on the way!

I figured that I would start to post my training log here for two reasons: 1) I think it will help motivate me and 2) It will be nice to have all of my workouts in one place. I have been following 5/3/1 for the past few months since football ended, and I plan on continuing with it. I am going to be doing the 3 day/week split. I find that it makes me hungrier to always have a day off in between big lifts.

I am trying to get into law enforcement down in Texas. I am into the background stage of one department’s hiring process. My main goals for training are strength, endurance, and to maintain my speed. I know that it is not the best idea to mix goals, but I feel that these are essential to being a police officer.

I will hopefully get up pics and stats sometime this week. My new mesocycle starts tomorrow with military press!

Today:

Weight - 170lbs

Military Press:
5x85
5x100
7x115

Abs: Anti-Extension: Ab-rollouts with the EZ bar - 4 sets of 8 reps

Extra chin ups between sets: Total = 31

Today felt like a good day. I was pumped to get back into some weights after a deload week. I struggled to get 10 reps on the second to last set for MP, but the last set I just flipped the switch. BW pullups felt great other than the fact that I’m using my biceps quite a bit. However, this may not be a bad thing necessarily because I do very little direct bicep work.
