Alright folks… I’ve decided that since I’m God’s gift to everyone and everything, I’ll bless T-Nation with my own UBER ADVANCED training log; I sincerely hope that everyone can learn a thing or two about becoming massive and strong through this thread of mine!
All kidding aside, TheDudeAbides sold me on this program almost effortlessly by directing me to his log. I’ll be starting right around where he did, and I would love to make similar gains. I’m coming in with 1.5 years of beginner experience, initially with lifts of:
Squat: didn’t have a squat rack/was a pussy
Moving to Spring 2007
Deadlift: temporary break, ran out of weight
Squat: still a pussy
Bodyweight: still 215
<—gym membership is acquired----->
Moving to dumbell benches and barbell squats by the present:
Bodyweight: still 215
I feel like I’ve made progress, but not as much as I possibly could have. Time to do better.
I was on a 5 day split, Mon-Fri; since I’m impatient, and also I think it’d be a good idea to get a workout that’s not during a school day I’m gonna start tommorrow and go every second day with Fri/Sat off.
Initially I probably won’t be so religious with logging my nutrition, because it’s pretty much always the same thanks to my cafeteria:
Breakfast: 5 boiled eggs and an orange, 2 cups of skim milk
Lunch: tuna wrap, plate of vegetables, 2 cups of milk
Supper: same as lunch
Post-WO: 2 servings of Optimum Gold Standard whey protein
Random Snacking: Kellogs Special K, green tea, V8 juice.
Supplements: Fish oil and Met-RX Tribulus at each meal
Total Macronutrients: generally just short of 2500 calories, ~200g protein, 80g fat, 200g carbs.
So, that’s where I’ve been and where I’m at. Where do I want to go? I want to go down from 215lbs to 195lbs and see how I look; once I’m lean I want to go back up to 215 and stay lean. I want to see my military press go up significantly, I was using 55lb dumbells on my last workout for sets of 7 and feel I should be doing better.
I want to see progress resume on my deadlift, which has been stalling on me for a couple weeks. I want my squat to be in proportion to the rest of my lifts since I started it late.
I’ll probably also bitch about things that bother me, as I happen to be an angry angry person who’s also generally long winded. Bad combo
So there it is… I can hardly wait to start lifting heavier and looking lighter.
