StraightEdge's Training Log


#1

So i have been off from training for the past five days due to having job training at school and the gym not being open. So tomorrow I should be able to get back at it. I'm not doing this for people to specifically follow me, because honestly I don't think people care, it is more for myself to be able to track my progress and to keep myself accountable.
Hopefully I will be posting tomorrow with tomorrows workout.
Things will get crazy at school but my goal is to post as often as I can.


#2

So I have just started 5/3/1 and I have just completed week 1. I will be taking tomorrow off and probably start up monday night when i can lift with the powerlifting team here at school due to the gym that they use is better IMO. I weighed in at 191 this morning. I am feeling a tad soft but i really feel like have have made some major progress the past few months. the fat is always easier to diet off. i will be posting my workouts from this week in a bit, i just have to go and get my training log but this is how my week went.
Tues: Military press --- My max 155 x 3
Wednesday: Deadlift --- My recent max is 375 x 2
Thursday: off
Friday: Bench press --- Recent max of 255 x 3
Satursay/today: Squat --- 345 x 2

The reason i say recent max is because these are numbers i hit over the past month that i am using to base 5/3/1 off of. Hopefully I will post some pictures from a bodybuilding competition that i competed in back in early august and them maybe i could get a few from now up at some point. I have decided to run 5/3/1 because i would like to increase my strength(dont we all) so i can possibly do some higher volume work in the future. It is more of a change for me because i have been using CT's methods as far as ramping and sets of 3 for basically the past year. I would love to run his latest program that he released but it is unrealistic for me to do here at school especially without access to a prowler.

#9

I don't give two shits what other people decide is right for them. I've made my decisions and people make their own and I have no problem with that. I'm not the type of person to hate people because they drink or smoke weed; its just not for me. I've seen too many people in my family throw their lives away due to drugs and alcohol, and I have felt the impact that it can have on families.
Just my 2 cents, I respect other peoples decisions and I hope other people respect mine.
