Rhino's Training Log

Why the hell not…I’ll start one. Im not one t carry around a pad and pen with me to the gym but I’m going to put up my numbers on here after I get home so I can somewhat keep track of my progress.

Current Stats:

Weight: 206lbs
Height: 5’8
Bodyfat: Don’t really care, but I would guess somewhere between 12-14%

Goals: Been doing typical 5-day bodybuilding split, moderate rep ranges for the past few months. Going to start trying out the concept outlined in the Matt Kroc interview today so I can get my strength up a bit. I’ll still be adding in a lot of bodybuilding type training as I go. I guess you can call it “Powerbuilding”
