I am starting this log to keep me on track (like most others). I will begin with my stats, history, and PR’s.
Weight: 185 lb
BF: ~17 (just a guess, will get it done ASAP)
I have only been weight training for about 3 years. Didn’t really lift heavy (<6 reps) until last August (2008) when I picked up Olympic weightlifting. Before that most of my training was comprised of work capacity stuff (as you will see with my future logs, I am good at handling higher volumes and intensities). My focuses now are to build strength, gain size, and lose BF (that probably sounds like every other log). I know what to do, I just need to do it. Around September/October is acquired a partial tear to my rotator cuff muscle (which one I did not know) so I am just now getting back to the presses.
Below are my PRs off the top of my head. Some are more recent than others.
Clean & Jerk - 220x1
Snatch - 190x1
P. Clean - 205x6
P. Snatch - 150x3
B. Squat - 345x1
F. Squat - 225x6
Deadlift - 315x6
Sumo Deadlift - 280x6
Pull up - 100+BWx1
Bench Press - 230x1 (pitiful, I know)
Military Press - ??
Push Press - ??
*listed in lbs.
I am currently following a ME/DE template. I just finished 4 week cycle and saw improvements in both bench and squat, so I will keep it for a bit longer. My next post will include the actual program, so keep checking.
In conclusion, I am starting this log to get some feedback from fellow lifters. Please give me any advice you think is warranted.
