I thought it would be a good idea to start a training log, so here I am!
Current bodyweight: ~107Kg
I started at the gym almost one year ago, at the end of January 2016. When I started I could Squat 50kg for 8, Bench 40kg for 8, Press 25kg for 8 and Row 40kg (badly) for 8. I started at a bodyweight of around 90Kg.
I followed a slow progressing bodybuilding routine for 3 months with a friend, who subsequently dropped out and left me alone on my quest for strength. I realised after some research and not much progression in the gym that I wanted to do a strength training routine, so I switched my program to a 3x5.
My progression was generally good, but I had a few setbacks that resulted from visiting my girlfriend who lives in another country, as well as a bicep tendon injury that resulted in me taking 3 weeks off. In total I missed maybe 2 months of working out, so the total amount of time I have been running a 3x5 program is about 7 months.
I will call it a year though, because one year ago was the time that I decided to get off my butt and start bettering myself!
In terms of diet, I kind of overdid it; force feeding myself and going up to around 4000 calories a day, with the impression that I had to eat as much as possible to grow…
…I got fat.
So now my goal is to lose fat while maintaining or gaining strength if possible.
I will be using this log to note down my workouts and my diet, as well as my progress in improving my posture (I have an anterior pelvic tilt).
