EDIT: Time to update my stats.
Now sitting at about 88 kg BW, still 187 cm tall, of course (for the Canadian/American contingent out there: 194 lbs and 6’1.5").
My current maxes (as of 1.1.2015) are:
est. 165-170 kg squat
130 kg bench press
232.5 kg deadlift
My goals for the end of 2015 are to hold a BW of 93 kg (time to get eatin’!) and to achieve the following in my lifts:
190 kg squat
142.5 kg bench press
250 kg deadlift
I’ve been meaning to start a training log for a while now, mainly as a means of motivating myself to plan my training somewhat better. I mostly use Excel spreadsheets to plan my programs, but I know that the input of fellow posters will motivate me much more to make changes and improve myself.
A little background: I’ve been weight training for the better part of 15 years, although I’ve really only taken this seriously for about five of those years (the rest of the time I trained as cross-training for my sport as a youth or just goofed around in the gym doing pointless things).
After playing around a bit with powerlifting during university, I decided last year to take a somewhat serious go at it, to put on some muscle again and to train to get my total up in anticipation of competing. I’m thinking about entering a meet next year, but before I do so, I’d like to get my bodyweight and my total up a bit.
Here are some vitals:
29 years old; 187 cm tall, 85 kg light (lanky-ass mofo). Current gym PRs: 140 kg squat (worst), 120 kg bench press, 210 kg deadlift.
My goals for this year: 145 kg squat, 125 kg bench press, 220 kg deadlift.
I’ve spent the better part of the past year running 5/3/1 for powerlifting with a couple of tweaks; had a brief and not too successful flirtation with Westside and ran the Russian squat program early this year. Currently I’m in week 5 of a seven-week 5/3/1 mesocycle (switching the 5+ and 3+ weeks and doing two cycles before deloading).
I appreciate any input that you might have on my training! Will try to post the odd video for your viewing pleasure.
