So, I’ve been on this site for a while and have posted a couple times and as you can probably tell from my posts, I am your typical beginner/newb in the sense that I have no idea what I want in terms of lifting and how to go about it. I’ve done like 3 week stretches of Alwyn’s program, Nate Green’s program and Chad Waterbury’s program to name a few.
Luckily for me, I came upon a “Blood and Chalk” with Jim Wendler and this got me interested. I started this about 3 or so months ago and am in my 6th deload week and loving it. The program that is, not the deload but whatever. I guess the point of this post is that I’ll just be keeping a training log and hopefully, the other 5-3-1 guys will follow along and chip in with their experiences.
At the moment, I am 26 yrs old, about 6’0 and 205 lbs. I have a chest that resembles a piece of looseleaf paper and I hate it. This is the one thing that I am hoping to improve on and am hoping for pointers from some of you successful 5-3-1 gents.
My starting training maxes were:
My training maxes for next week will be:
150-Military (actually got up to 155 but had to reset the maxes back down)
Goals are to get a 225 Bench, 315 DL and Squat and then keep on moving north of vag.
As for food, I’m just gonna eat clean as much as I can and only eat when I’m hungry really. I’m tired of trying to count calories and carbs and fats and proteins. Mostly, I’ll have eggs and bacon and a grapefruit along with a glass of whole milk for bfast, lunch will usually be the 2nd piece of meat that I cooked from the night before along with 2 green peppers, dinner will usually be a meat along with some type of bagged veggie unless I decide to get something else.
If I get hungry, I have the “Dave Tate Grab Bag” with peanuts, almonds, cashews, and m ‘n’ ms or I’ll have some David Pumpkin seeds. Ok so time to move north of vag. I’ll try and keep my log and keep you up to date on progress.
