Hi, just joined the site so thought I would start a journal to log my workouts and my nutrition, as I will be getting back in the gym tomorrow after about a month layoff due to injury and exhaustion.
First off, a little about me…I am 22 years old, 5ft 10ins and weigh about 168lbs. I play soccer, so want to stay about this weight and am not looking to add much in the way of size. I am really only looking to improve my body composition a little bit through lowering my bf% slightly. Other than that, the other objective I always hold in the gym is to get stronger each workout, either by adding weight or reps. After this, I find the rest takes care of itself.
As I say, I play soccer, which means either 2 games and 1 team training session a week, or 1 game and 2 team training sessions (usually the latter). In between this, I will be lifting using the Defranco WSBIII template, which I have used with good results for probably a year and a half now.
As stated earlier, I have been injured so haven’t done any running or soccer for about 2 weeks, nor have I been to the gym since 2 weeks prior to that as I burned out a bit. So, I am feeling small and soft at the moment, and weak. Therefore, I can’t wait to get cracking tomorrow and get back into the good shape I was in about a month ago!
Will update tomorrow!
