After lurking on this like a crazed stalker reading all the articles and your blogs on T-Nation, I decided that I too want to be a powerful woman. I learned quite a bit from reading everything here and it's about time for me to step it up.
My name is Rachel. I am 24 y/o recent college grad who still doesn't know what she wants to do for a living. But what I do know is that I have a passion for the weight room, martial arts, and Buddhist practice. That is my holy Trinity. As the title suggests, I have some chubby wubby hanging on me since I can remember and quite frankly, it over stayed its welcome. I have been in and out of the weight room for a while and now am determined to make it an integral part of my life.
wt: 175 vertical: 18in Squat: 165 x 2
ht: 5'5 1/2 bench: 85x4 (BOO) Dl: 185 x 3 (probably lower, form is off =/)
BF%: 30% pull up: 1
Short term goals: 20-22% BF. Frankly, whenever it feels right
Long term goals: bench 135, DL 315, Squat 275, vert: 25 (if possible)
I will be posting a log later today. I am using Alwyn Cosgrove & Mike Rousell's Warp Speed Fat Loss with modifications. Modification I (Diet, instead of 10% carbs, 30% since I play competitive volleyball 3x/week.), Mod 2 (up calories by 250 since I am going to do this more than once), Mod 3, focus more on deadlifting technique and add some rehab work for my scapula winging on off days. I don't know if I am being excessively detailed but I think that I must write it down since I am not doing the program 100%.
Bye Bye Chubby! HELLO Wonder Woman! =D
