1st log.. here we go.
Background- 33 years old 5'10 225 ish. Been lifting 3 years ish. Intermittently. More serious the last 8 months. Played 4 years of highschool football guard/linebacker lifted a bit my varsity years and 1st cpl years of college. Mostly bench. Curls. Situps ect. Just started lifting again 8 years later at age 30. 2011 started off benching situps n curls. 2012 added in some deadlifting. Sept. 2012 suffered a suprasantis (sp)? In my shoulder and took a hiatus from benching heavy or any overhead work. Still deadlifted n what not. Feb 2013 resumed benching and started squatting as well.
Two things 1. I am the oppitimy of good bencher/ bad deadlifter. Long torso/shorter arms. 2. Only starting deadliftig and squats after 30 years of age makes you realize the base strength that can be built and retained by doing them at a young age is priceless..as I had none. I dont train for.powerlifting or any sports in life.
I do this because i enjoy it and want to get stronger and healthier as I age. Work 50 plus hrs a week at a physical job, manage a wife, three kids2 dogs house cars ect.. took 5/3/1 and just stalled on 5 th cycle. Gonna try somethin new . 10x3 based training.
