I’m new here to TNation and look forward to sharing my training log with everyone. A little background on myself:
Body Fat: 14%
Years (seriously) Training: 4
I was first thrown into a weight room my freshman year of high school because I wanted to play for the football team. I was given absolutely zero direction and had no idea what I was doing. It wasn’t really until my senior year of high school before I really started to somewhat train hard. I didn’t come from a stellar high school program which makes sense due to the lack of weight room commitment. Despite my underwhelming strength, I got a few feelers from some Division I programs from conferences like the Big Ten, Missouri Valley, Ivy League, and others. I decided upon a small university in Indiana. I came in as a freshman tight end at 210 pounds while benching around 185 and squatting 200. 2.5 years later I am 250 pounds, benching 275 pounds, squatting 375, power cleaning 280, and front squatting 300. While these numbers are still much lower than I’d like them to be, I feel they are a great improvement from my lack of lifting early on. Right now I am focused on further strength/performance gain while trying to clean up my diet and lose some body fat, while still keeping my weight up. I will do my best to post my training, as well as my diet, the best I can.
I look forward to any questions and comments you guys may have!
