T Nation

Blood, Sweat, Iron, and Men in Singlets


#1

Hows it going all, I figured I'd start a log here on T-Nation considering I'm on it all the time. I keep my own personal log, but figured it'd be fun to start one up here as well. I'm a high school wrestler for my varsity team, junior year. Love lifting, and plan to be doing it for the rest of my life. Alright lets get some stats and facts:

Age:16
Weight: 148.8
Height: 5'8"
Years training: 1.5
BF%: Around 7-9% (rough estimate)
Current Program: 5/3/1 Periodization Bible Template. Going to be running my 2nd cycle.
Goals:
-Get down to 145 and maintain it throughout my wrestling season.
Lifts:
-Overhead press 80x8
-Deadlift 240x10
-Bench 130x6
-Squat 205x6
Lift Goals:
-Overhead press 100x5
-Deadlift 315x1
-Bench 155x1
-Squat 245x1

Had to carry some 45 plates 500 yards from the middle of the mall into my car today, needed to pick up some more weights. Longest impromptu Farmers walk I've heard of. Will be back tomorrow with some overhead pressing.

Nutrition:
-2 whole eggs, 1/2 cup oats, whey shake in coffee (23g pro)

My nutrition almost always stays the same, dinner is always changing but unless I start stalling in weight loss or start gaining, its not a big issue.

Got back from practice and hit a contrast shower, felt good doing this again.

Nutrition:
-2 eggs, 1/2 cup oats, whey shake in coffee
-Deli turkey 6oz, 2 slices whole wheat bread, 1/8 cup almonds, whey shake
-Whey shake with 2 tbls peanut butter
-Big ol' chicken cutlet with sauce, 1 mozzarella stick, 2 bites or so of spaghetti (all leftovers)
-Whey shake after practice

Bodyweight this morning was 147.6, that being a .6 difference felt like i might be losing too quickly. Added in another whey shake with peanut butter for an extra 330 or so calories, will see how it goes. Back tomorrow with some deadlifting.

How long is your offseason?


#9

Depending on how far into districts, regions, and states we go it could be anywhere from early March to Mid-April. This year it was the middle of march or close to it. Season typically starts on November 28.

Just in time so you can't chow for Thanksgiving. Nice lifting, keep it up. And don't get discouraged if you stall/lose strength while cutting.

Diet is gonna be critical, but it looks like you have a better handle on that than I did in high school.


#11

Thanks for the encouragement, and your right diet tends to be key. I keep as close a handle on it as I can, but thanksgiving will probably be one of those days where I just try to keep it as clean as possible but eat a decent amount of food anyway. I've been backing off the weights on my assistance a lot, but my main lifts have been going good so no worries for right now.

After my partner left my house around 6, I got a bit of treadmill incline walking in just to burn off some extra 200 calories.

Nutrition:
-2 eggs, 1/2 cup oats, whey shake in coffee
-Tuna, 2 slices whole wheat bread, 1/4 cup almonds, whey shake
-2 scoops whey with 2 tbls peanut butter (PWO)
-10 pieces of london broil, 3/8 cup rice, a lot of carrots

Ended up combining my usual preworkout and postworkout nutrition into different meals because the meals conveniently places themselves around my lifting schedule today.

Off day from lifting got 40 mins on incline treadmill walking in. Burnt 400 calories there then continued to do 6 50 yard sprints and 2 100 yard sprints. Grabbed a shake and called it a day. Back later with nutrition.

Seeing myself get down very lean in the mirror lately, hopefully hitting that 145 soon. Training at school with the team tomorrow and seeing as how I'm looking to be captain I'll be coordinating the conditioning after. Sprints here we come.
