OK so I’m new here. UK based. Trained 2 years ago heavy 5x5 after a leg break and got my PR’s up to:
Squat: 140kg (308lbs) 5x5
Bench: 90kgs (198) 5x5
Deadlift: 160kg (352) 3x5
Press: 55kg (121) 5x5
Then I stopped wanted to Olympic lift and work got in the way. (Crap excuses I know)
I have been completing the Wendler 531 system since October for 4 full cycles. I began to fail to complete the standard weights with good form and as of three weeks ago had built back up to:
Deadlift: 125 1x5
Bench: 77kg 1x5
Press: 57.5kg 1x1
Squat 60kg 5x10
No real squat as I have developed patella tendinitis and need to keep the squat light and frequent. I squat every session and am adding 1.25 kg to each session with a view of the 5x5 program except I do 5x10.
I’m logging my workout here with two real goals.
Improve my strength to Press 60kg 5x5 Bench 100kg 5x5 and to have a single digit body fat %
Current weight is 92kg body fat 22%
Feel free to chip in and make suggestions I am restarting the Wendler (from cycle 2’s weights) as the program suggests once you fail.
Food wise when I am good I am very good when I am bad I am horrid. But Ill log an we can see where I can improve and get going.
Here’s to getting fit and not fat.
