Hello everyone. I’m creating a log to document my workouts.
I’m from Singapore, have been working out since i was 18 so more than 15 years of working out consistently. At the beginning (2005) i was doing men’s health magazine workouts then got into Madcow 5x5 for a looooooong time. lol. alot of following programs blindly and not becoming stronger.
Next I got into olympic lifting for a short while in 2010-2013 but didnt make any progress. I guess there was alot of blindly believing about the “eliteness of olympic lifting” (same as above) and didnt focus on getting stronger as well as doing the proper ground work to build strength.
Since last year i’ve decide to make a change and focus on becoming stronger and I am the strongest that i’ve ever been in overall body. Some of my stats are
Squat: 150kg (April 2021, not much focus on this)
Chinup: 50kg (Jan 2021)
Dips: 30kg x 10 (Recently, done as an accessory)
One of my goals is to cut till an 8pack this year haha but ive not decided when in the year I should do it. I also need to read up on how to diet down lmao.
For my goal currently is to get a bodyweight weighted chinup (75kg estimated), so this thread is to track how it goes.
neutral grip pullup
(the lactic acid build up was bad lol)
i started with 60kg and both my legs were convulsing from dormant muscles not being used in months. i did a few more warmup sets with 60kg and went onto incline bench to let my legs rest. AFter bench, I went back and did a set of 5.
