Alright! My name is Colby Fore, and this is my 2nd log here on Testosterone. After reaching a generally unsatisfied point in not only my training, but also my log (which you can find here), I decided to try the Westside Barbell Conjugate system for a 2nd time. For those of you who are unaware of the system, check out either this article or this article for some general knowledge. Another good resource is Louie's new website (which can be found here).
Although I am not following HPMASS created by coach Christian Thibaudeau, I still revolve my training around a quote mentioned in this video:
"The goal is to build as much muscle as possible while being as powerful and as strong as possible, and also doing as much work - capacity - as possible."
I want to be the biggest, strongest, leanest, most athletic, BEAST of a human being I can possibly be. Why would I shoot for anything less?
With all this in mind, here are some of my stats/numbers:
Age: 18 years old
Height: 5' 8"
All time best lifts: 2 italicized lifts were done while using the Westside system my first time.
Squat - single ply suit, wrapped, belted at meet: 405lbs
Squat - raw, belted in gym: 345lbs
Bench - raw, belted w/ bounce in gym: 235lbs
Bench - shirted, belted w/ strict pause at meet: 210lbs
Deadlift - belted in gym: 465lbs
Military Press - belted: 135lbs
Power Clean - belted: 205lbs
When in doubt, read this article here on T-Nation and listen to this podcast presented by Barbell Shrugged on YouTube.
It's time to make a change, break some records, and be my best.
