I am a new member to the forum but I have been reading and following along for awhile now. I decided to start this thread to document my lifting this year. I am 24 y/o. I have been lifting consistently for about 3 years now. I lifted all through college but I basically skipped leg day every week so I can’t really count that as consistent lifting. I learned how to lift in high school with the football team so I do have a decent background of proper form etc… 1 year ago I dropped my membership and stocked my basement with gym equipment. I competed in a powerlifting meet this past summer ‘17 with RPS. I was going to wait to compete until I had better PRs but I decided (with some inspiration from people on this forum actually) that there was no real reason to wait. I totaled 1050lbs which I was happy about. 340/310/400. I completed a 320 bench for my third attempt but I lifted my feet off the floor (this will hopefully be an easy mental error to fix). My bench was good for my weight-class but my squat and deadlift have a lot of room for improvement. I competed in the 181lb class and my body weight was 179lbs at the time. I fluctuate throughout the year between upper 170’s and mid 180’s. I stay decently lean. I eat well. I only count protein because I habitually eat healthy carbs and low fat. I almost always get 150-180 grams protein per day. Currently I am working out 3 times per week with full-body workouts. The only supplements I take are creatine 5g daily, preworkout, fish oil/daily vitamin, and BCAAs.
I plan to post on this log after every workout with my current BW and lifts of the day.
Current BW: 183.6
Squat: 6,3,2,1 255,275,295,315
Bench: 5x1: 280
Back: 5x5 t-bar row heavy
Triceps, biceps, shoulders: 4x10 dips, curls, lateral raises.
Thanks for reading. All comments welcome.
