Hello, my name is Mike and I'm from Poland. English is not my nativ language so be forgiving.
I decided to finally start my log somwhere to keep track of my progress and keep me motivated. Since I found here very good and interesting articles I decided to stop here for a bit longer.
My training history include 6 years of voleyball training then 7 years of muay thai with some regional competitions and sometimes lifting as an add on. I got some few injuries in thaiboxing with elbow and had to stop for a long my career. I started to lift more and used several FBW, push pull legs programs but never felt like they'r good for me.
Recently I started to do 5x5 bill star program with nice progress on strenght and also got some mass but still not enough (tho I didnt workout for a hypertrophy yet) In 3 weeks from now I run in "obstacle race" so I decided to start some bar complexes as my strenght and conditioning workouts and also add some intervals then back to normal plan and probably start 5/3/1 n some variations later on
My numbers for now (after 5x5 progg)
weight 76 kg / 167lb
height 185 cm / 6,1"
Deadlift 160 kg / 352 lb
Squat 5x100 kg / 5x220 lb (ATG)
Bench 90 kg / 198 lb
OHP 5x50 kg / 5x110 lb
GOAL: be stronger obviously, start bulking after I back from holidays (late autumn), "look like a bodybuilder, perform like an athlete" since I might back to thai boxing sometimes (not competetive) n more obstacle races if I like them
I might add some photos of when I started n where Im at now tho its nothing to show off. More like to keep track for my own purposes. Same with videos I might upload to check my form so feel free to comment n get constructive advice
