A little over 3 years of on and off training, accompanied with losses of weight whenever I stopped working out.
Fall of 2007-Started working out at 130lbs at 5’11".
Spring of 2009- Was up to a pretty soft 175lbs.
Fall of 2009-didn’t train all summer-back down to 155lbs (hurt back)
Fall of 2010-up to 185lbs
Winter 2010-took around 20 days off training-back down to 171lbs.
Current- Getting the weight back up. Around 178-179lbs right now.
I think the thing that’s been holding me back the most this whole time was my diet. I never really even kept track of cals or macros. I’m now following a diet I wrote up on a whim a little over two weeks ago
and have been hitting PR’s and slowly gaining weight since. I’m more serious than ever about my training and am ready to get big.
Folling a five day split right now.
DB Incline- last week was 75’sx7
Seated Press-last week was 65’sx5
Squats-back injury makes any lift involving spinal compression hurt a lot.
I’m planning on giving front squats a try this week though.
For how long I’ve been working out (even inconsistently), my numbers are low, and I plan on changing that.
I’m not proud of the time I’ve taken off, but I am proud that I’ve put on a relatively lean 49lbs since I started training.
DB incline 90’sx8
Front Squat 185x8
Seated Press 75’sx5
Deadlift consistently-get it back to repping 315
Get weight up to 200lbs
DB incline 110’sx5
Front squat 315x1
Seated Press 90’sx5
Get weight up to a leaner 210.
Should be getting a camera some time in the next two weeks for the sake of progress pics.
Now that I’ve finally gotten my diet sorted out, I’m ready do do work.
