Thanks to everyone who left a post in The KimbaLog since August 2009 – its filled up and this is my new log.
Here is the CliffsNotes version of the old log:
I’m 5’4", 111 lbs or so, 45 years old by the calendar but not in my head.
Lifting heavy things, eating mostly clean and winning the genetics lottery have gotten me the body I want. My cardio is bicycling in the good weather, and downhill skiing and XC ski-skating when there is snow.
My goal now is to lift heavier things, but in a rational, sustainable, injury-free way.
I started 5/3/1 in January and am currently in Wave 2.
The only female company I have in the lifting of heavy things are the badass chicks right here at PW. (The gentlemen-callers frequenting this space are the icing on the proverbial cake).
If this forum didn’t exist, my squat and deadlift form would be utter and complete shit, as opposed to the reasonable works in progress that they now are.
Specifically I want:
a 1.5 x bodyweight back squat (170 lbs.)
a 2 x bodyweight sumo deadlift (225 lbs.)
a 1 x bodyweight bench press (110 lbs. – I’m rounding this down cause this is my suckiest lift)
an 85 lb. military press
40 bodyweight dips
- My PRs as of today are:
Back squat - 120 lbs for 2 reps
Sumo deadlift - 160 lbs for 4 reps
Bench press - 85 lbs for 1 rep
Military press - 65 lbs for 1 rep
Dips - BW 1 x 27
Chinups - BW 1 x 8
Let’s see what wonderful goal-attaining I can log here.
