hey all. i see lots of other logs and lots of responses and i wanna play too!
so here goes and to start a little about me. i was an athletic trainer working independently for nearly 9 years working mostly with endurance athletes (runners and triathletes) and high school level multi sport athletes. i also did some post rehab work before the athletes went back to their school and off season conditioning. and there were other various short term gigs.
well i had a kid, got married, got divorced, changed careers (i now work in IT so if you need PC help...), and gained a bunch of weight and stopped working out for years and became an out of shape 37yr old. im back into it since the spring. taking it slow so i dont cripple myself after a nearly 4 year layoff.
this year set myself a goal, to finally become strong. or as strong as i can. i even found a group of guys to train with that are competitive strongman and powerlifters. one guy has a garage gym that is awesome and i have quite a bit of equipment. the other guys gym has produced a few national level competitors so i know i am in good company to learn the ropes. most of them dont even know i was a trainer. i am stepping back and learning which is quite the experience.
my workout right now is fit to be able to work on the main guys schedule. right now i do this:
tuesday - deadlifts. started the coan/phillipi 10 week program as recommended by my new training friends. this workout is done at the strongman gym.
thursday - bench. using wendler 5/3/1 for this.
friday - squat day. i was doing volume squats till last week and am changing to a focus on bringing up my backside and lower volume to handle the deadlift day better. plan on doing lots of box squats.
sunday - strongman training or shoulder press. every other week i dont have my daughter so i do most of the strongman competition lifts for the guys next meet. been doing lots of log presses, farmers, and tire flips. the other week i am doing wendlers 5/3/1 on the overhead press.
i throw in GPP work when i can.
