Been keeping a paper journal for a while but decided to start an online one. Been lifting for a around 1.5 years. Started the gym a few months before my 17th birthday. Current goal is to get as big and strong as I can while I’m still in my teens. I plan to stay in a surplus for as long as I can (probably 90% of the time). I was progressing nicely until about a month ago where I decided to cut and to stop squatting for a whole month because my abductors rubbed together, which I totally regret. I would like to smash through my previous strength numbers and continue growing. I have a good chance of getting some quality sleep over the summer now college only continues in September. Would love to reach a 2 plate bench by the end of this year and perhaps 100kgx15-20 Squat. Would like to keep bodyfat the same -18%.
As of now I’m 18/5’7/82kg/182lb
Best squat: 100kgx8
Best Bench: 72.5kg x 10
Current: 75kg x 6
Press 60kg x 3
I don’t deadlift simply because I don’t like them but I’m trying to be able to do a barbell row with 2 plates. Currently on 82.5kg for 5. I will try and do add some deadlifting though since I literally have so much progress I could make with this exercise because I’m so weak at it. Perhaps if I get stronger at this exercise then I would enjoy it alot more. Would like a 185kg deadlift hopefully.
I’ll be following a slightly modified version DC training will be rotating between A and B workouts. I’m literally going to go from a workout to workout basis, trying to get one more than last time. I’ve done previous programs that are percentage based but I personally think it’s not the best option for me. I’ll post the exercises on the specific day since I rotate exercises fairly frequently. Will be hitting lagging bodyparts 3x a week while more dominant muscle groups will be getting worked 2x a week. Lagging bodyparts currently consist of biceps (long american football style insertion), rear delts and calves. Will be hitting lats and side delts pretty hard too although they’re my best bodyparts but I want to have a truly insane V taper.
