Will probably talk about my training a bit later and some future plans for that log.Too tired and hungry right now
So,although singles and speed work(haven’t done that in a while) have worked wonders for me,I feel burnt out.So I’ll switch to 3-5 rep maxes for the upcoming 1-4 cycles(depending on how that goes),looking to add a lot of size and build a base for huge strength gains on the future,while having some fun by changing stuff a bit
Wow you went through all of my log.That really is a flattery
My cycles are 4 weeks always,4th week being a deload.Although that may seem too often to deload,Heavy squats,overhead presses,rows ect get me fried fast and by taking it easy for a week I manage to make consistent progress
Since I’ve made some online friends here and also fell in love with logging,let me talk a bit more about myself,training background,future goals,both training wise and general ect
I started training back at 16.My father had purchased an 1 year gym membership and he had 2 months for a friend as a gift,so 2 days before graduading 10th grade I joined.My little 13 years old bro joined with me cause he had a low self esteme and he never stood up for himself.Kids half his size slapped him and he started crying or feeling bad.Funny how now he is a 210 pound ‘‘monster’’ that always stands up for himself
I trained there as a retard,what I did right kinda right though was train legs twice per week with insane volume,which contributed to their current size I think.After the 2 months passed I joined the public stadium I occasionally trained at cause I didn’t want to ask my father to pay 2 memberships.Although it had minimum equipment,it taught me the value of free weight training.I think if it wasn’t for that place I’d be stuck squatting in the smith machine
After 2 years I graduaded high school and moved to another city to study at the math department.Training kept being kinda all over the place.I didn’t really care about powerlifting but I just trained for it,which had me unmotivated
Then,at 2015 I joined t nation and you know the rest.Seriously,joining there and logging every single detail of my workouts was the best thing I did for my lifting career
Here’s me at 16,before I started lifting(yeah,I was the guy that was listening to music and sleeping at boring classes)
It’s good you got started so early and did more right than wrong. You’ll go far the way you’re going.
The community here is awesome. I think it almost makes up for the lack of that exact element at many gyms. I’m lucky because my gym has a decent community, but my mates here on T-Nation are every bit as important to me.
Yeah,starting at such a young age is a huge advantage.As long as I keep training and I don’t get hurt I have it’s almost inevidable that I’ll reach some solid numbers and size
My gym is an exact replica of what you said,but tbh it doesn’t bother me at all.As long as people there are nice and provide me the equipment I need the lack of like minded individuals does not bother me a single bit
P.s shaving,not having my hair short at the side and wearing tight clothes was like I was playing a prank on myself on the last pic lol
We’re basically the same training background wise only I’m not as far down the line as you. I think without t nation I’d be doing whatever exercise was rated highest on a random site in a body part split for 100s of sets. I definitely wouldn’t be as motivated or serious as I am now.
Keep on logging and getting stronger.
