This log isn’t going to be very exciting. I’m setting it up because I ran out of room in my current notebook and felt like making the switch to digital journaling.
Long story short: 26 yo M, 6’1 205 lb. I’d say like 15% bf, give or take.
Was an athlete growing up/through high school, spent most of college doing boxing and bjj, focused on lifting mostly after graduating college in 2014.
Had serious lower back surgery in November of 2016, got back into the gym around February of '17 (about a year ago). Did well to put weight back on after the surgery and get my strength back.
Things I’d like to improve:
-MOBILITY: my mobility, compounded by the LB issues, is piss poor. I realize that I’m still recovering from the procedure and not at 100%, so improving movement quality and range of motion is paramount. I’ll take any and all advice I can get with this.
-Aesthetics: Summer is around the corner. Who doesn’t want to look great. I look pretty good now, but could def improve body comp a bit.
-“Core”: def want to improve core strength and stability.
Split is as follows: Chest/Tri’s - Back/Traps/Bi’s- Legs/Shoulders-Arms
My leg work has to be “creative”, spinal loading is still a no-go, so I stick to DB squat variations, and lunges.
As for food, I’m not an adherent of any strict dietary principle. I try to keep protein up and cut out the garbage and sugar. Lowering inflammation is another goal of mine.
Lastly, I rate every workout out of ten. It’s a weird mental thing I’ve always done.
Ok, off we go.
