Hi. I’m Emmet. I want to get stronger. I started lifting weights when I was 16 and found some 8# DBs in my father’s closet. I’ve trained mostly like an idiot. I used to pull all my routines from M&F and skip the leg days. My last term of college, spring 2011, I started bulking up, pulling deads, squatting, and trying to figure out how to get stronger on my own. Turns out, I was pretty shitty at figuring it out on my own. I got bigger, but not much stronger. After bashing my head against the wall, going through another bulking cycle, and getting pretty pissed off about how weak I was, I found 531. Did that for a few cycles, and now I’m about to finish Juggernaut.
I won’t shoot test or anything. I don’t knock that–I have a lot of buddies that do. It’s just not for me.
I’m not worried about body measurements. I can tell what’s getting bigger by the mirror and how my clothes fit.
Deadlift 500# by Sept. 2013 without missing a lift along the way. If Ed Coan could leave his ego outside the gym, so can I. That dude almost never missed.
Get a stupid big yoke.
Get stupid big wheels.
Do a raw PL meet sometime in 2013.
Expect more from myself.
Do what I can to keep all my training partners stronger than me, or get them stronger than me.
Now that I don’t make excuses in the weight room anymore, I want that to carry over to the rest of my life.
