I've been a lurker on this forum for quite some time now, posted a few times for advice and whatnot but I figured it was about time to get more serious and put up a log to keep me on track.
Weighed in at 195lbs on Monday morning, my scale isn't the most accurate(tanita electronic measurement) putting me at a 20% body fat.. one aspect I definitely need to improve.
Previous to recent injury my lifts were
Squat: 280x5 (low I know, I seem to have recurring issues with my knees and hips which usually results in extremely slow overall gains on squats for me)
My goal is to increase muscle mass and strength, just want to end up as a really big strong guy(with less body fat eventually of course)
I have always followed a 5x5 format, however the gains were coming to a slow halt. I read into many other methods recently, quite interested in DC training principles so I decided I would give it a test run and see how much I can get out of it.
Hopefully some more experienced guys can chime in and give their 2 cents, always looking for some constructive criticism.
I'll try and upload some pics and whatnot soon.
