I’m “Dom” and I’m a powerlifter/former Div. 1 college football player. I decided to make a log because I’m bored, and I’m just trying 5/3/1 for the first time. I’m about 6’1, 230 lbs., trying to shed some bodyfat, get stronger, and look and feel better.
I played 4 years of Div. 1 football, as a OLB/DE hybrid and a TE (2 years each.) I took some time off to work, f-ed around in the gym, and after enrolling in a grad school program 2 years ago, I’ve started to powerlift and try to get to a new level of strength.
I competed in equipment up until last April, with number of 635/455/585. I haven’t competed or maxed raw in a long time, but the numbers I use are 515/410/535. I’m hoping to make a major leap forward over the next calendar year, and hopefully be competitive as a raw powerlifter/overall badass.
I started 5/3/1 two weeks ago, so yall are lucky enough to get the 1’s week. I’m planning to do every other deload, so it will be a little more exciting for yall. This month, I choose to do the bodybuilder accessory work that Wendler outlined in Men’s Fitness, with a few subs to keep me interested.
I’m also following a Modified Warrior Diet program, designed by Michael Keck, so hopefully I can keep yall informed on that too. I’ll update as often as possible, and maybe include some pics for yall.
