Lecher08's Training Log

I’ve seen someone else posting there training log and i deicide to start posting mine as well. I believe it would start helping me to remember my workouts since now i just make tallys on the floor of my garage or try to remember them from my high school gym. I’ve been working out for about a year now. Im 17 5’9 and weigh at 170lbs. @ 12.5% BF. My max on bench is 235lbs. Clean & Jerk 200lbs. I havent maxed out on squats since i hurt my right knee.

My goals are now to try to increase my maxes while trying to become as lean as possible. I will post up pics later but I believe I could drop pounds and still look as big as I do now since i have build up my shoulders nicely and they are wide. But im now in the quest for ABs. While keeping my strenght as high as possible.

Legs have been sore since Thursday workout so fridays workout was very light.

Inclind dumbell curls and inclind press
each rep. I find it a good way to do biceps and upper chest at the same time.
Try it!!!

*I used 45lbs dumbells each hand.

^^
but every time you get done with the inclind press, youll bring the weight back down so your arms are hanging straight down then do a curl up with both arms then do an inclind press and repeat. It takes focus and energy!

I did a split workout and did legs later at night.
