Starting a log up for the summer and gonna see where it goes from there. Little background about me, I’ll keep it short and sweet. Just graduated college, decided to not get a real job and I’m working in the Florida Keys as a divemaster for 3 months, then I’ll figure out what I want to do. I’m interested in the police, fire or coastguard as places to start a career.
Training for a year and a half. Mostly a powerlifting routine but havnt competed. My lifts are (sq-315, bn-225, DL-375). I’m stronger then those numbers says, I could squat more and I know I can deadlift 405, just missed it last time. When I started I weighed 225, I’m now 185. I’m 5’ 8".
My routine for a while looked something like this -
mon - sq/bench
wensday - DL/bench
I did everything heavy, between 3-5 reps and occasianally went for 1rm. Benching on wensdays was usually lighter and every 3rd week or so I did rack lock outs instead with a real heavy weaight.
My goals for now are to keep (or gain) strength, and lose fat. I love training for strength but now I want to work on endurance and being fit (for police, fire, coastguard, etc.).
I’m going to track my workouts in this log and some small nutritional stuff. Mainly what I’ll post about nutrition is if I fuck up and eat an entire pizza, which happense every so often, and hopefully you guys can kick my ass for it. I learned in a psych class that a person has a better chance of doing something if they announce to others that they are doing it. So here it is. I’m going to clean up my diet.
I just read the shotgun method and its nice. I like the fact that it works around the big lifts because thats what I like and thats what I’m used to doing. I’m still working on it but what I got so far is something like:
D1 (Mon) - Shotgun - Squat, Bench, cable rows/pulldowns
D2 (Tues) - Bi work, Abs, Pullups
D3 (Thurs) - Shotgun - Deadlift, Military Press, Upright Rows
D4 (Fri) - Pushups, Tri Work, side lat raises
On my days off, or even on my days on I’ll probubly work in some cardio. I’ll also be doing some other physical activities,kayaking with the g/f, diving, etc.
Well theres the intro post. Think thats it. Anyones welcome to post here with critizism or w/e. Thanks.
