Theres my old log.
Stats
Age: 16
Bench: 225
Squat: 300x3x5
Deadlift: 285x3

As you can see my deadlift sucks, especially compared to my squat. Those pr's are from over the summer. I broke my wrist over the football season which put me out of lifting for about 9 weeks. Ive followed Starting Strength for the last month to get my strength back. I designed a program inspired by the Coan/Philippi program but with less volume and more geared toward my weak points.

Everything is in WeightxSetsxReps

Today

Deadlift
Warm up
280x2 These didnt feel too hard

RDLs
225x4x3 Never done these before but was pleasantly suprised at how easy they felt. I picked each set up with a normal deadlift and then did 3 reps of RDLs

2" Defecit Deads
225x4x3 Never done these either but felt good.

Chin ups
10,10,10,8,8
Intended to do 5x10 but I havnt really trained these in years and my grip was shot from all the deads.

All in all today felt great.


#2

Note: I am doing deficit deads and RDLs because I am very weak off the floor. I have a long torso and short arms. Ive found that if I can get a weight past a couple inches off the ground, then I have no problem locking it out.

160x6

Hammer Strength Rows
130x5x10

Incline Bench

70x3x8 I intended for this to be 75x5x10 but I was dead from the rest of the workout. Something to improve on.

I’ve had success with this bench program in the past. Today the bench weights were all pretty light.

I got lazy with updating this. I pulled 350 like 3 weeks ago. That means I added 50 lbs in 10 weeks with the program i ran. I also benched 225x3 which was a pr for me. Now i am in the lacrosse season. I will be training in season and will hopefully be able to pull off some prs

Update: I broke my OTHER wrsit in the lax season, meaning I broke both of my wrists in a 6 month time frame. The doc seems to think i just got unlucky and nothing really wrong with my bones. Anyway I’m back to 100% now. I actually just ran the 1st program of “Neanderthal No More” and I might post some pics. At the start of this week I began training with the football team and Im running a program with lots of compound movements.
