Hey this is my first time keeping a log and have been reading this site for a year or so now. I train for strength with a training style that resembles powerlifting though I do not intend to compete. ok so here are my stats
Height: 5ft 8
Age: 18 years
Weight: around 74kg ( heighest weight I have been is 80kg)
Close grip bench press: 95kg
deadlift: 170kg (poor grip strength)
Standing barbell press: 60kg
db rows: 45kgx5
I have been training seriously for about 12 months now and I am starting to realise what works for me. I hope to one day compete in MMA but at the moment cannot get to the club that I would like to train at.
I have 5 and a half years years kickboxing experience(from 7 and a half until 13 years old) , reaching brown belt ( two away from black belt) and had a record of 2 wins 2 losses( the two losses came at the age of 8 and i did not compete again until I was 12 the last win by K.O in the first round)the plan for the moment is to build strength and gain some weight before cutting down to fight.
I have no illusions of fighting as a pro or at a weight higher than welter weight more likely to fight at light weight.
here is a brief look at my training.
mondays: squats(usualy olympic) followed by hamstrings and abs( usualy stiff leg deadlifts and pull down abs)
wednesday: bench (usualy close grip, incline or board press) triceps and back work
friday: deadlifts and some quad work( leg press and high box squats) as well as more ab work
sunday: db bench some shoulder work and triceps as well as back work.
today I went to the gym but had no energy and was in the frame of minid that I should not be training
db bench( weight is for 1 db)
db shoulder press
after this I just had no energy, had more planned but decided to call it a day
sorry for the long post.
hope everyone has a good day, Im off to get sorted for tonights party.
