I'm 20, been in NY most of my life and I've been lifting on and off for the course of about 4-5 years. I picked it back up pretty seriously over the past 2 years and just now I decided to log. My father back in his day was a bodybuilder so it all started when he taught me the basics as a teen. I don't classify myself as a bodybuilder or a powerlifter, or in any category because ideally I'd like to be everything, so I like to think of myself just an amateur weightlifter.
Currently I'm 5'6 and ~161 lbs. The picture above was taken ~2pm today after back day
I'm starting this log so I can get more serious into my weightlifting and track my progress as things go on.
Last week I set some new PR's, all without videos but I'll find someone to record some in 2-3 weeks when I decide to max again.
BB Bench 275 x 1
A2G Squat 225 x 6
DL 405 x 1
Strict Standing OHP 175 x 1
Clean and Press: 205 x 1
The proportion of my lifts are retarded I know, all I did in hs was Bench/DL for local highscool pl meets. (For some reason they didn't squat?)
My training split is a little funky currently, but sort of in a bodybuilder style.
Sun - Heavy Squats/Calves (5x5)
Mon - Chest
Tues - Back/Light-ish Front Squats
Weds - Shoulders
Thur - Squats and Legs (usually 10x10 Squats)
Fri - Arms
Sat - poop
My weak point is my overall leg development so for the past several weeks I've been attacking them with a vengeance. Hopefully it's not overdone and I'll be able to cope with the continual soreness I'm always experiencing squatting 3x/week

I forgot to put my diet in here...
I'm not very strict on my diet, nor do I log it but I typically eat 2 times a day, yes TWO times a day!
I live in a dorm with only enough meal swipes per week for 2 swipes/day so I gotta deal unless I want it coming out of my pocket.
When I'm in the dining halls I tend to load up on chicken breast/whole milk/a few greens/cottage cheese/fruit to the point of feeling sick, twice a day. Usually after eating, I'm incapacitated for the next hour or so but I gotta make the most of what I have!!
I do have my own mini fridge and I do go out of my way to buy my own milk. I typically drink about 1/2 - 3/4 gallon of whole milk/day along with 2 whey shakes. Also throughout the day get ~1 full serving of my mass gainer in (which is 3 scoops and the scooper is nearly the size of my fist!)
To list out my supplementation other than food:
ON Strawberry Whey / ON Hydro Whey
GNC RE-BUILT MASS gainer
