Point of this thread is to have other people judge my progress and give feedback on it and what I should do from here. I’ll break this up into 2 posts.
Okay, so I started out 16 years old, 6 ft 1 180 lbs on October 28th. These were my lifts (in pounds):
Squat: 3x5 160
Bench 3x5 135
Deadlift: 1x5 185
Overhead press: 3x5 80
Power Clean: 3x5 115
I got up to 226 lbs by May 1st (so 6 months) but decided I was too fat (picutre links at end of post) and started cutting. Unfortunatly I strained a quad muscle the first week into my cut so I couldn’t do much cardio, and my squats and deadlifts instantly got weaker due to the strain (I lifted through the pain up until 2 weeks ago). I did low carb/high fat/high protein diet and used Bill Starr’s 5x5, which was what I was using to bulk until this point. Pretty much no cardio because of the quad strain, only incline walking on the treadmill for 20 minitues after the 3x weekly weight lifting sessions.
Anyway, now im about to turn 17 in 2 weeks, and im about 194 lbs with these as my stats:
38 inch stomach (down from 43 inch on May 1st)
Squat: 3 reps 275 lbs
Bench: 4 reps 170 lbs
Deadlift: 2 reps 360 lbs
Press: 3 reps 120 lbs
Power Cleans: 4 reps 175 lbs
