The purpose of this log is to keep public record of my training for my own accountability, for anyone interested enough to glance into it, and to have backup stats in case anything should happen to my now-sacred notebook which I purchased two days ago.
I currently weigh about 165lb, standing 5'7". To give you an idea of BF, my current contest weight is somewhere between 140 and 150.
My max deadlift was tested at 365lb a few months ago, weighing about 155lb.
Max bench and squat are unknown, but I work in the heavy 3-5 range at 195-215 for bench, and 315-325 for squat.
I did a quick-and-dirty wide-grip pullup test recently, getting 16.
I have been reading a lot about DoggCrapp recently, and have been getting angry with my progress over the last few years. I feel there is no reason I shouldn't have more strength and mass to my frame as a natural athlete. I have decided to postpone my experiments with DC training and focus on getting my lifts even higher, especially bench.
Due to the inspiration of DC training methods, I will be adopting the principles I believe I need the most. I am in the process of writing a complete training program, which I will post the details for in my next post. All progress will be recorded in my notebook, and eventually transferred to this log but not necessarily at fixed intervals of time.
Details of my diet will also be recorded, but not in this log unless otherwise requested. I have recorded every gram of food I have consumed in 2009 and will continue to do so as I change my diet. Brief history: I experimented with the AD for the first half of this year, tapered into GSD, tapered out, slowly brought carbs back in, increasing calories to 3000. I will be trying to target my macros into a 40:30:30 CFP breakdown. Currently they exist more as 25:45:30.
I'm sick of being small, even with the success I have had in recent years. I am aiming far higher now, as 180 isn't even a satisfying number. However, I don't plan to go right to 250 or anything absurd. My first goal is to get my weight to 180, while putting at least 20-50lbs on my squat, dead, and bench numbers. I hope to do this over the next 2-3 months.
The program that will get me there...
