-Note: I wrote this last night, but lost internets due to the storm lol.
With the impending doom of finals approaching and a thunderstorm raging outside, I figured now would be as good a time as any to introduce myself:)
I’ve been lurking for a few months now, and since I’ve finally started to get my butt in the gym, I thought it would be a good idea to keep a log. I’m 19 and a student at the University of Oklahoma. I’ve managed to keep off the freshman fifteen with next to no physical activity and horrible eating habits the past two semesters. I have an athletic background of gymnastics, swimming, and volleyball, and I missed being in shape. Plus I’m planning on wakeboarding a lot this summer, and I need to build up my strength so I don’t burn out so easily:)
So my goal is to increase my strength and build muscle mass.
I’m on my fourth week of the routine I’ve been doing and I’m already making gains.
BF: NO idea
The short-term goals I set are
Squat bodyweight (135)
DL bodyweight (135; achieved today!)
Squat 1.5x bodyweight
DL 2x bodyweight
-definitely starting off weak…
PR’s as of this week:
DL 135…made this one today:)…big PR for me, 40lb jump.
Bench-not sure where this one is at, will see this weekend.
My routine is as follows:
Overhead DB Press
Wide Stance Squat
I need to work in cardio and ab work on my off days, but life has been crazy with work and school.
Once finals are over this week hopefully I can get into a more consistent routine.
Oh, and my diet is pretty much shit. I’ve been trying to just eat more in general, I used to get by on hardly anything with being so busy with school and work.
Anyways, sorry for the long post!
I really enjoy reading everyone’s logs and seeing the progress being made. I can only hope to become as strong as the women I see on here!
I’ll post logs and all that jazz later, the storm has subsided, so it’s bed time:)
