I am a long time lurker and a never poster.
I am starting this log to hold myself accountable and track progress.
I have been lifting for 3 years however… all 3 years has been with fuckarounditis.
In those three years i have gained 50 lbs… from 90 lbs to 140 lbs. I look and feel much better however I think it’s time to kick it up a notch.
i want to bring my squat up as its lagging behind my dead lift and increase my lifts in general. More Strength!!
I also want to lean out just a little bit. i am sitting at about 25 to 28 percent body fat and want to be closer to 20-22 percent. aiming to lose 5 lbs at a time in fat but gain muscle and strength.
I also need to improve my conditioning. I hate all forms of cardio and as a result… never do any cardio. My off days will now consist of 30 mins of… incline walking for now.
I intend to use 531 5’s Pro W/ FSL/BBB
Jim layed out a mix of the two in his new book that I really like. My plan is to run two 6 week Leader cycles of it with a 7th week TM Test between the 2 cycles anda 7th week PR test at the end of them for a total of 14 weeks. I intend to follow those up with a 531 PR Anchor Cycle. After that i will decide where i want to go from there.
I am reducing my training maxes a little to make sure I can hit solid reps for my first few cycles and will be increasing the standard 10 and 5 until I need to slow down more (if ever). As jim says… “start too light”
