Hello everyone. I would like to start a log to record my progress and get advice too. To introduce myself: I am going for my blackbelt in TKD in October. Weight 112 and I’ve always been thin but not really athletic.
Last November I decided I needed to be stronger, so I started doing bodyweight exercises and then lifting actual weights.
Today, here’s where I am:
deadlift 1x3 140 bb (< first time!)
lunges 2x5 75 lb bb
bench 1x3 3x2 85 bb
row 3x5 35 dbs
squat 1x5 each 45, 50, 55, 60, 65 bb ( I know this is really low. I’m trying to get deep and I have a lot of trouble staying stable at the bottom so I am working up steadily.)
overhead press 3x2 60 bb
chinups 7 bodyweight, 1x2 1x3 with a 10 lb db between my feet
squat 1x5 each 50,55,60,65,70,75 bb (same comment as above. My best full squat ever was 90 lb)
bench 1x2, 1x3 1x2 1x1 85 bb
Any comments welcome or you can ignore me if you like!
