Screelo’s Log to Strength

Hi everyone,
After looking through several logs on here I’ve been motivated to start my own on here. Hopefully to hold myself more accountable and make progress with my lifting rather than spinning my wheels with no direction. This is my first post on t-nation but I’ve found much useful info on this site over the years.

I’ve been lifting since I was 16, the first 6 years I was focused on lifting to improve my baseball abilities, which I played through college. Now I sit the desk. After college I’ve done a lot of different things with not much direction. I tried 531 for a few months but lost motivation with it. Currently I am on day 10 of a 20 day strength program I found online that looked interesting. I’m thinking of trying 531 again after but would love to hear other ideas. Input is always welcome!

About me: I’m 28, 6’-2” and 205lbs (up probably 10 lbs the last couple months). My best lifts are:
Squat 315#
Bench 215#
Deadlift 425#

My short term goals is to hit a 1000# total. Longer term I would like to continue to increase my strength and maintain around a 200# bw. Eventually I want to hit 405, 315, 500.

Thanks for reading, I will start logging workouts tomorrow.

Squats were a major grind, legs felt beat up before even starting. Bench moved easily. Increased bw lately has definitely helped my bench.

I do have a log but you may not find it too interesting - haven’t been in the gym for a while.

@The_Myth thanks for sharing. Respect for being so open with what you’ve been through.

Glad to share.

Not sure if it’s being open or needing work on my boundaries, lol.
