My name is John.
I’m 20 years old. I dropped out of college last year to pursue a career in sales.
I am 6’3, and I weigh 189. I’m what you would call skinny fat. I look tubby as hell around the midsection, but I really need to gain a lot of muscle.
The last time I had a girlfriend was when I was 17 and a high school senior. I didn’t even get to second base.
I’ve never won a fight. Shit, I like to fight. Correction, love to fight. Maybe even live to fight.
In high school my senior year a friend of mine started a fight club. We fought every weekend, often times two or three fights a night. In nine months, I never won once.
Then I went to college. I was gonna change everything. Got into ok shape freshman year, then sprained my ankle really bad. Since then my training has been incredibly sporadic and completely unfocused.
Finally I’ve decided to say fuck it and make this happen.
I’m doing Rippetoe for two months bare minimum. I’m going to drink my gallon of milk every day, I’m going to eat my 4 to 6 clean meals a day with protein at every meal.
And I’m going to BUST my ass in the gym.
So here’s the brutal facts:
Upper Chest: 38
Lower Chest: 36.4
Largest Waist: 39.25
Left - 13
Right - 12 7/8
Left - 15 1/4
Right - 15
Left - 22.5
Right - 23
Left - 10.5
Right - 10.5
Now here’s the pathetic part that I don’t want to bring up. I did my first workout yesterday. I wanted to cry after realizing how fucking weak I am. I’m so embarrassed to even put these numbers up, but it’s even more motivation to bring them up.
10 minute treadmill warmup: 1.2 miles
Back squat 3x5x95
Bench Press 3x5x85
With as weak as I am today, that’s disgusting.
I’ll be adding 10 pounds to each on Wednesday when I do my second workout.
Power Clean: 3x5x180
I want to start fighting again, and training martial arts as well. In the next month or two I want to join a martial arts gym and start studying Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Eventually I want to fight at the amateur level in MMA.
