Please allow myself to introduce myself…sorry for the lame joke, but for some reason I was thinking about Austin powers.
I’m a long time reader but first time poster. My stats are:
Weight: 163 lbs.
BF%: Idk, but fairly lean
BP max: Idk, but I can bench my body weight (160 lbs.) X 19 times. The 1RM chart says I can bench 303 lbs, but if I try to bench that I’ll have to pay an early visit to Mr. Jesus.
Squat: Zero lbs. Yes, I can’s squat because I have a problem with my groin, so if I want to squat the Dr. might have to take one of my boys out (btw one of my balls didn’t drop when I was a baby, so the Dr had to retrieve it).
So, any movements like squat, lunges, or leg presses are beyond my reach. Therefore, for legs I do interval runs with a weighted vest.
I’m currently attending a junior college, and the wellness center holds a competition every summer called “pump paddle and run”.
Where, I have to bench my BW as many time as I can, and for each rep I get 6 secs off my accumulated time for the run and swim.
For the paddle, I have to swim 75 meters against the clock.
The run is 300 yards divided into 10 intervals of 10 yards between 2 cones.
Each contestant gets time on the run and swim, but gets 6 secs off the general time for each rep made on the BP.
I really want to place in the top 3. I’m graduating this year, and I want my name and face to be in a poster placed at the entrance of the gym (I know its lame, but I want it). In part because I had a terrible break up with a girl last Dec, and I want her to see my face there everyday for a whole year. I will elaborate about that soon on a post.
I’m wondering how I could train to be able to BP my weight about 30 times? I have about 3.5 months to train.
I go to the gym 3 times a week, and train (shoulders, neck, traps, triceps, and biceps) on day Mon. For Wed I do interval runs + abs. For Friday (I do chest, shoulders, triceps, and traps). If you guys want I could elaborate more on how a typical workout looks like, but I don’t wanna make this post look like a 50 page book. Thanks for taking the time to read, and please help me.
