I have decided to start this log to give myself some accountability. Since I joined the gym in January Ã¢??09, I have kept a journal logging all my lifts. Looking back, it seems that I havenÃ¢??t made that much progress at all due to training attention deficit disorder, seriously, IÃ¢??ve tried about 8 different programmes! At least I know what works for me now, and that is 5/3/1.
Profile: IÃ¢??m a 2nd year student doing Landscape Management (think project management for nature reserves). I like metal, xbox360, history, animals, women etc.
BF%: ? too much

At the moment IÃ¢??m eating for recovery and growth. Mainly food based, eggs, meat, milk, green stuff, sweet potatoes and rice. 200g protein etc. I do have excess body fat but I want to have something to show before I reduce that. A big change I have made since the beginning of the year is to cut out 90% of bread and beer (and drinking and wheat in general), you might not be able to see in the pictures but i reckon i have lost about 10kg of fat just from that.
I use fish oil, multi vit, zinc+magnesium, BCAA, some protein powder, and gut flora promoter stuff.
