Destruction in Reverie


#1

Starting a new log, haven’t been on here or training seriously in quite some time. I’ve gotten through the past 8 weeks training and eating so I figured give logging a shot on here again.

Stats:
Age - 22
Weight - 184-186

PRs:
Squat - 585 in Wraps and belt
Bench - 315 touch and go
Deadlift - 700 in belt

Currently nowhere near those numbers at all, especially since they were done around 250lbs and on the dark side of the moon.

Split is going to run as
Day 1 - Chest / shoulders / tris
day 2 - back / bis
day 3 - quads / hams / calves

with ab work thrown in wherever. These sessions are obnoxiously long and destructive, but I respond best to destroying myself and resting for days. The way I plan on eating is how I did when I hit those big numbers but much less shitty carbs only good ones. Each meal will be
-50g of drinkable protein (From whey and milk)
-30-50g of protein from whole sources
-One serving of fruit or veg
-any amount of carbs

This plan is taken straight from Jim Wendler, it worked well in the past as long as I don’t turn from rice as a carb source to donuts. Will start around 3 meals a day likely with a shake post workout as well, and move up over time as needed.

Also I do yoga 3-4x a week at a studio, so I’ll log that on here as well.

I’ll post a picture in the morning along with training
