T Nation

TJ's Log


Alright, so I'm back to T-Nation after a few years of hiatus and a few months of lurking and I'm starting this log so that I can more accurately keep track of my numbers. If anyone wants to comment, criticize, whatever, that's cool, but this is mostly just so I have a place to keep track of my own shit (I lose notepads like it's cool).

Anyway, maxes are recent (within a month) bests, body weight is as of today:
-6' @ 215lbs
-315 Bench
-425 Deadlift
-315 Squat (I know I've got more than this, but I'm back from a tailbone fracture)
-265 Power Clean
