Figured I'd make the move from the notebook to the web, maybe build motivation, read some other people's logs, get some advice, and overall become better.
Some background info:
I'm 26, 6' 2 3/4". Right now I'm at around 205 depending on the day and the time of day I weigh myself (bw fluctuates a lot). Don't have any 1RMs and honestly don't plan on testing them any time soon - just worrying now about increasing my weights each workout.
I ran track in college (decathlon) and following my last season had my best summer of working out ever, doing a lot of crossfit/gym jones type workouts with some track buddies. Our log of what we did that summer (and some of the following summer) is here:
We definitely didn't know a lot and often just did workouts because they made us hurt, but it was fun as hell.
I'd love to get back to these someday but my immediate goal is to get bigger while keeping my BF% around where it is (don't know what that is, need to get it measured soon). As such, I'm following Jason Ferruggia's Muscle Gaining Secrets workout program and started experimenting with carb cycling. I weight train 3 days a week with upper/lower splits (i.e. week 1 - upper/lower/upper, week2 - lower/upper/lower). My strength is nowhere near where I'd like it to be which will be apparent when I start posting my weights.
Immediate goal: (next 6 months) 215lbs, single-digit bodyfat. Once I'm there I'll probably do heavy lifting 2 days a week only (maybe stick with 3) and switch to more athletic/timed stuff - sprints, plyos, tabata stuff, whatever.
Biggest weaknesses: Shoulders (thank you javelin), eating right, general strength, getting enough sleep (probably my biggest issue).
I'll start posting after tonight's workout.
