Little about me. I’ve been exercising for about 3-4 years now, but never seriously weight training, and whenever I do try to get serious, college lifestyle slowed me down. I’ve always been very athletic, fast, explosive (considered walking on for high jump). However I party and drink. A lot. And I’ve been undereating for a long time.
Anyway, I just finished my master’s degree in exercise physiology. I was initially doing my PhD in exercise physiology, studying mainly the molecular pathways involved in disuse muscle atrophy in rats. However I realized I needed a job with more human interaction and got really interested in exercise training. So I finished my masters in Human Performance.
This is my first training log as I start a new chapter in my life.
Age: 24 years
Height: 5’ 11
Weight: 170 lb
Bodyfat %: ~5
Measurements: (in cm, relaxed unless otherwise noted)
Biceps (flexed): 37,36
Upper arm: 32.5
I will start this log using the 5/3/1 program. I have an injured right shoulder and pain with internal rotation. I’m using a workaround by performing chinups instead of overhead presses, and I find I can perform BB floorpresses with flared elbows without pain.
Initial estimated numbers (conservative)
There it is. I will update regularly with estimated 1rm, weight, bodycomp measurements. Every 3 months I will update bodypart circumference measurements.
(Will also try to post pictures if I ever get a digital camera)
