To summarize, I am going to be doing a variation of Bill Starrs 5x5 for 8 weeks, starting yesterday (monday) June 25 2012. I am going to be lifting Heavy on M & F and on Wednesdays, I will be doing light weight.
I will keep a log on this thread of all my workouts as well as update my weight every other week.
Background and Goals:
I am a 22 year old male college student at IU Bloomington, Indiana. I have 3 more semesters left to get my Exercise Science major (I switched majors and took a semester off) and then I intend to go into Physical Therapy. I am already in pretty good shape, I bike every where.
I am 6’2" 205 lbs roughly 12% bf
I can post pictures later.
I have always just gone to the gym and trained kind of instinctively, most of what I know having been derived from my high school strength and conditioning class. Now I am a little more knowledgeable and ready to get serious.
I am trying to get my weight up to 220-225 lbs at which point I will set new goals, more related to strength/performance/body composition and shit.
On this thread I intend to keep tabs on my progression, I don’t do any drugs, hard or soft, I don’t drink, I don’t take any supplements, and I hardly eat fast food, if anyone gives a shit. My goals at this time in my life are to do well in school and learn my trade so I can be a good Physical Therapist later on, and to get cocked as hell. This is the most focused I have ever been so far in my life, and I want to see what I can do.
My big 3: (Where I am starting from)
Squat: 275 lbs
Bench: 240 lbs
Deadlift: Idk I will have to see, but I can Romanian DL 225 8x’s
Goals: Short Term / Long Term
Squat: 350 / 405
Bench: 275 / 315
Deadlift: 350 / 405
I will post the workout I did yesterday later tonight, because I have to get ready for class and shit, and I kind of decided to start this thread after I already decided to do the 8 wk program.
