Here is the deal, ive havent worked out for over a year and a half. I just started again 6 weeks ago, and i must say im back to loving going to the gym.
Since getting back into lifting, ive been log onto this site for hours at a time just soaking everything in, and i have decided to make a log of my progress on here as motivation to keep pushing.
My main goals for the end of Feb 07 are
- Bench Press 405 for 5 reps - Squat 675 for 5 reps - Deadlift 675 for 3 reps - Military Press 315 for 5 reps - Weight 265-285
Now here is were im at now for all of the above
- Bench 315 for 3 reps - Squat 495 for 5 reps - Dead 495 for 3 reps - Military Press 185 for 3 reps - Weight 390
Now i know these are some high goals, but lile i said, ive missed over a yr of lifting, and before i stopped i was squating 595 for reps of 6, deadlifting 595 for 2 reps, Military pressing 225 for 5 reps and benching 365 for 1 rep. So im counting on regaining alot of that over the next couple months, if not sooner at the pace im at right now.
Also i know my bench goal isnt as high as the rest, but its because over the years ive been a slow gainer in bench, but a fast gainer in deads, squat. So ill be happy to break the 4 plate mark on bench.
For a program im using a 4 day a week work out of
- Mon Heavy Back, traps, Light legs - Tues Heavy Tri's Chest - Thurs Heavy Legs, Back, - Fri Heavy Shoulders, chest, tri's
Basically its Deads mon, Bench Tues, Squat thurs, Military Fri
For cardio im going to fill it on my off days.
For diet, im eating lean meats, fish, with alot of green veggies. With fruit, and light carbs, no junk.
Also drinking a min of a gallon a day in water.
Ill be updating my progress on this thread at the end of each month with my current weights for everything. Also im using reps with wieghts, because i lift alone, and maxing out isnt something ive done since ive started again, and i dont think i will max out for awhile either, i just dont need to right now, i shooting to just loose weight, get stronger and add muscle.
