I guess I’ll do a little about me and then put up some pics later. I have been hesitant to start a log cause I keep my own already in a notebook, but I guess it will be worth it to have some other people look over it. Here goes.
I’m 19, started training a year and a half ago, at this time I also started increasing calories too gain mass. Here’s my basic stats before and after before I get into detail.
Body weight- 139lbs
bench press- 45lbs x5
deadlift- 135lbs x5
body weight- 215lbs
bench press- 250x1
squat- can’t do cause of surgery
Okay so after about 7 months of training I got extremely sick, vomiting every morning, couldn’t keep down whole foods, vomiting during day, constant extreme nausea. This lasted for about 6 months, I went to a ton of hospitals and got tons of tests, even for cancer, overall this was very serious chronic illness symptoms. I went into this at 195lbs, came out at 180lbs, and took me a month to get back to 195. I tried like hell to maintain my weight during this period by continuing to train hard and drink liquid smoothies. Overall worst experience of my life. Anyways I get a good amount of my calories from shakes still as my body is still adjusting. I eat 4200 calories a day.
Also during this time I had two surgeries. One got me out of training lower body for 8 weeks, the next has kept me from squatting and doing any other form of leg work (except deadlifts and leg extensions) for the past 5 months. Still got some time to go as the wound is taking a ridiculously long time to heal. I won’t go into detail but trust me its not pretty nor is it fun. I’ve def been introduced to the concept of extreme pain at a young age haha, more of lifes lessons.
Anyways my goals right now are to get strong as hell while working around my medical conditions and also get as big and muscular as possble.I’ll throw up some pics later but I’m guessing I’m sitting at about 20% bf, not too bad I guess considereing its been about a year and a half of bulking (although interrupted).
I’m doing wendler’s 5/3/1 for my main lifts (obviously no squatting) I’ll post my routine in the net post so this one isn’t long as hell
