James' First Ever Training Log


Hi all

Just creating this so I have somewhere to track all my logs since I'm on my third log book at home and it's nice to have everything in one place.


Age: 20
Height: 173cm (5'8")
Weight: Still needing to weigh myself in the morning before eating but around 78-80kgs


Don't want to write too much here but started lifting halfway through 2006 due to a knee injury and needed surgery. Got hooked from there and haven't stopped lifting since but still have a lot to learn.


Did 1RM testing a while ago and could only test a couple of lifts due to injury so those numbers won't be so relevant now as some lifts have dropped while others have gone up but here are my current numbers as of last week and this week...

Front Squat: 3x5 105kg ATG (1RM 125kg last year)
Bench Press: 3x5 90kg
Weighted Chin up: 3x5 BW + 22.5kg
Deadlift: 1x5 140kg (155kg x5 is my PR)
Push Press: 4x4 60kg (just got the form down recently)
Hip Thrust: 4x6 105kg


Going to start logging from yesterdays workout, this is the fourth week into my new programme so here we go...
