I’ve tried starting a log here a couple of times for the t-transformation challenges but never stuck to it, but there are so many others that I lurk in and admire what they’re achieving that I felt it would be good to keep one myself for compatibility/accountability.
Current goal is to get to the standard 1/2/3/4 big lifts, but for multiple reps rather than 1RM. My thinking is this should be well within my capabilities if I just follow a structured program consistently, and by using something like 5/3/1 I can just aim for my TM to reach those numbers (thereby getting 3-5 reps of each which would suit fine).
I’ll come back an edit this post with stats/updates later on as needed.
Current Stats (Aug '21)
Age - 30
Height - 6 foot
Weight - 182.4lbs (13st 0.4lbs/82.7kgs)
Previous best lifts are as follows
Deadlift - 140 x 1, 130 x 5 (this was actually over 130 but I forget the exact weight, maybe 132.5?, so I’m just recording it as 130 to save overstating)
Squat - 110 x 2, 100 x 5
Bench - 80 x 5
OHP - 50 x 5
The 5’s above were all done some years back when I was following GSLP, and I remember being heavier, but sure exactly how much without digging out my old logbook. Think it was somewhere in the 13.5 - 14st range.
I think the 110 x 2 squat was a couple of years back now. The 140 deadlift I’ve hit a few times (3 or 4 times?), the last one being middle of 2020 at some point, but I hurt my low-back when dropping weight in January 2021 so I haven’t revisited anything that heavy in a while now. Things are improving now though so I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before I get back to it.
Current lifts (1RM) are probably somewhere in the range of 120-130 deadlift, 95-100 squat, 70-75 bench and 45-50 OHP. I rarely try for 1RMs though, so this are pretty loose estimates
