I figured after a while of lurking and reading other peoples training logs (mainly j_wiley, I dont know why)I would start my own. I'm 39 going to be 40 this year. I have been working out for a few years but not seriously. I toyed around not doing anything real until I read Charles Staleys' book Muscle Logic. It changed the whole way I look at training and eventually led me to this site, where I have based my training philosophy on several authors.
I am currently doing 5-3-1(big surprise I know). I am on my second cycle and will post my workout. I have goals I want to reach this year. I want to have a military press in the high 100's, a deadlift in the 400's, and a bench in the low to mid 300's. I also want to bring my sqaut up from vag where it is now. I never really trained much on the squat but I have decided to change that. The deadlift is my true favorite, but the squat isnt. I want a front squat of body weight and back squat int the low 300's. I am currently doing front squat now.
I have decided to also use Joe Defranco's Built Like a Badass program as well and I saw Dave Tates, 30 second rep workout I will put in as well. I dont know how to design a good program so I will use theirs. I'm not hung on my weight as a number, but I do want a better looking physique. I will post phots of me in a couple of days. Any and all comments are welcomed.
