Hey fellow ladies of T-Nation,
Just a beginner deciding to delurk after a lot of things happened.
A little about myself…
I’m a premed student who also happens to adore playing piano and lifting weights. I’ve played piano for about 12 years now and I’ve been lifting for…well, just a year and a half now. At first I wasn’t so sure about making a log but after breaking up so suddenly after four years of a stable relationship, I need a little extra stuff to keep myself occupied until I get over it. So that’s pretty much the gist on why it took me this long to think of starting a log after lurking and creeping around the forums for months, ahaha.
Current Physical Stats
Weight: 164 lb
Current 1RMs (lbs)
As you can see, my overhead press is just terrible, since only until now have I realized that I’ve been doing it wrong all this time. Specifically I realized my range of motion was total shit last week, so that’s something I really wanna work on.
My current training style is something like a higher volume Push/Pull/Leg split, done over five days with two days for conditioning. Goes something like ABC_AB_CAB_CA_… thing, with underscores being rest/conditioning days. I’ll talk more about it in my log entries later, so I’ll keep this part brief for now.
As for goals, I pretty much just wanna be strong and look it too, kinda like what Konstantin Konstantinovs and Matt Kroc managed to do. Well, as much as I can do within my means anyway, but I’m not gonna quit pushing myself to my fullest. Specifically, I hope to be able to reach or surpass the following 1RMs within two years, without weighing over 165 lb ideally and not an ounce over 181 lb as a clear-cut limit.
Goals (1RM, lbs)(within 3 years):
As for long term, I hope to be able to achieve a 1000 lb total with the big 3 lifts within my lifetime, in 181 lb weight class realistically, 165 lb ideally, or 148 in my dreams haha. Of course that’s something I’ll see after I actually reach those totals, but I see no reason to not shoot for the stars. At least I’ll land on the moon or something that way.
So that sums everything up, I guess!
I’ll get to today’s stuff after I actually do it, so I’ll be back with my Leg Day updates later today.
EDIT: Updated my current 1RMs and amped up goals a bit for certain lifts (read: bench) because I might just be reaching my old goals way before my deadline.
