I have been reading the articles and other resources from T-Nation since January. I have finally decided to join the nation and no longer be a lurker and introduce myself.
Weight: 190 lbs
BF: I'm guessing 15%
As far as my training background goes, throughout high school I played soccer and swam. Never really lifted weights except for a few occasions during high school. During those few occasions I can only really remember benching and doing squats, lunges, and step ups when I sprained my knee for rehab.
Since graduating I've been playing intramural sports and the occasional pickup basketball game.
I started lifting weights around March this year and haven't really stuck to one program per se. But I've decided to just pick a program and stick with it for at least 5 months. I've actually bought Wendler's 5/3/1 book and will definitely be starting to follow it.
My maxes are as follows:
Bench press: 245 lbs
Squat: 275 lbs
Military press: 165 lbs
Deadlift: 335 lbs
Chin up: BW+60 lbs
T-bar row: 4 plates
Obviously my goal is to get stronger and bigger, but leaning more towards bodybuilding.
Btw I have a power rack in my garage at home.
Comments and feedback are welcome.
