21 years old, was super nerdy in high school and was addicted to Everquest II, looking to get strong and improve my life by starting a proper training routine.
Stats- 5 ft 8 160 lbs
I have been lifting for about 1 year and I gained about 10 lbs in that first year, but I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I only did curls, DB Bench press, skullcrushers, leg extensions, and situps, all with high reps(20-30), poor diet, and inconsistent training. After doing some research, I have come to the conclusion that I need to start strength training on a proper routine. Yesterday I did my first workout on Starting Strength. This thread will track the progress on my journey to ultimately competing in a powerlifting contest( hopefully )
Workout A (8/6/2013) (Yesterday)
