I figured I would start a training log here since I don’t have one anywhere else.
Some background on me:
I am an engineer by profession (cubicle desk jockey), a father to 3 great kids and married to an awesome woman.
I started working out years ago in high school and put on some good size and strength while playing rugby. Continued that through college while training MMA (when I achieved my leanest/strongest at 248 with a 500+ lb deadlift). Took a few years off when I got married, had kids and pursued a master’s degree (2013 to 2019). Body took a hit and I was up above 300 with a serious dad bod for awhile.
Decided to regain my health and musculature starting this year. I have been consistent since January with few breaks working out and my physique is finally starting to show it (pics to come later in thread).
30 years old
6 foot 3 inches at around 280 (dense and most of my engineering teammates think pretty lean, but no abs currently showing or anything).
Arms currently just shy of 19" without pump (need to get other measurements).
Current Program I am running a push/pull/legs split 4 or 5 days a week. I train mostly for hypertrophy and size (due to the fact I workout at a commercial gym that discourages things like squats/deadlifting).
For recording purposes format is SetsxWeight-Reps
Previous workouts this week not logged: Monday - Legs, Tuesday - Push day with shoulder focus.

Felt pretty strong this morning, size is definitely coming back quickly (I have always been able to add muscle fast).
