I’ve been enjoying the readings on the site for a while, especialy Alpha’s log, so I figured out I’d join in.
I don’t want to turn out like the “guys” in Men’s Health or other mags by any means !!!
So on me,
I’m from Montreal, Qc Canada and I train in a ghetto gym for a year and a half. Did a few months here and there before, but no commitement or nothing serious.
I’m 25 y-o, 6’1, 190 pounds. No clue about my body fat, I have some beer belly.
-My bench press is about 6-7x135 pounds, my PR was 155 pounds (I know it’s low, I really want to improve that) I pretty much do negatives repetitions with my partner (2 or 3) I think it’s doesn harm, right?
-Just started squats, trying to get the correct form. I used to do the squat machine, which doesnt improve the core so…
-I don’t waste time or talk much at the gym, I try to keep the weightlifting around 1h.
I do 20-30 minutes of cardio after all training sessions (except when I do squats and lunges)
Sometimes 30 to 45 when it’s an off day.
Right now i’m eating much leaner and I totaly avoid beer. And no carbs 4 hours before sleeping.
My usual diet/fuel
Morning 1h pre-workout : Shake of 1 scoop of whey + 1-2 banana and oat
pre-workout : some NO generator.
Post : shake of 2 scoops of whey + rasberries
1h after that: tuna or beef or chicken and some vegetables.
2 other meals later in the day (often leftovers) , then either in between or after 1-2 scoop of whey.
And I just ordered some BCAA’s.
My long term goal is to get much better & stronger, and leaner.
My apologies for the long thread, and feel free to comment or ask anything, even if it’s “fuck you, you fail”
I attached my pic, it’s nothing spectacular -I don’t care. it’s me
