Just Some Dude's Log

New here but have been lurking for a good amount of time. All of my college classes are online and i’ve got a stupid amount of time on my hands right now so I thought a log would give me something to do.

Age: 19y/o, BW is 225.8 as of this morning

I haven’t maxed out on anything recently, so I can only use Rep Maxes
Squat: 490x3, 510x1
Bench Press: 310x5 TnG
Conventional Deadlift FS: 545x3 w/ straps

Biggest concerns for me are injuries. I’ve gotten lucky that I haven’t had any setbacks so far. My Programming is built upon two men I met at my gym, retired powerlifter who totalled 1800ish and another who totalled around 1550.

Squat and Bench Press are my main priorities at the moment. I just got a new pair of Knee Wraps and will be learning how to use them soon, excited to see how much it adds to my raw squat.

Ok enough of the boring things. Thank you for reading this far.

Forgot about this video from Pete Rubish. His older deadlift videos are unintentionally hilarious to me just because of how freaking cracked out of his mind he is during warmups lol

Failed to lockout the 5th rep on my topset for deads. Was stuck a few inches above the knees for a good 6-8 seconds, just didn’t have it in me today. Went a little harder on accessories because of that.

Speed off the floor was incredibly fast though, explosiveness has been improving.

Haha, thank you. I never thought my deadlift was that strong, I’ve been trying to bring it up as best I can but I absolutely hate the movement. Makes it harder to progress when you don’t enjoy it.

Decide to do alot of different variations today for my accessories. 2.5lb PR for Bench. Might’ve been able to hit 340x3 but who knows. I’ll have it in the bag next week though.

Shoulder was acting up after benching, so wanted to go light on alot of stuff. Finally getting used to form changes on bench. I was cramping up bad benching on my toes. Transitioned to flat footed benching and it feels great.

Tried out the wraps today. I felt that I could’ve gotten an extra 3-4 reps with 435lbs but we decided to stay at 8. We’ll be going back down to heavy triples next week since i’ve been running this rep range for 7-8 weeks now.

I’d say my max is around 540ish raw. But won’t know till we try.

Thought the 110lb Dumbells were going to snap my ass in half lol. It’s getting extremely difficult to hoist them up but I manage, somehow.

Nice session and nice work getting 110s in position. I imagine a bitch solo kicking them up.

Yeah it was heavy as shit. Thankfully the benches at my gym are really low so it makes it a little easier to setup alone.

I’ve tried getting someone to help me out at the start, but I noticed it really messes up my concentration and positioning. So i’ve opted to do it solo.

Looking strong brother! Especially for your age. I wasn’t moving weight like that at your age. Stick with it, and I bet you will be really strong!
