Default FlyUSMC's journal

Well due to my irreparable shin splints (and therefore a very unfortunate career shift), I can now at least concentrate on lifting (which is a HELL of a lot more fun than speedwork). Tomorrow (Monday 4/2) begins the fourth week of Rippetoes, I stupidly haven't kept a journal yet but am starting tomorrow. So far, this is me:
20 years old
Male
5'10
162lbs
est. 15% BF, will get an accurate reading this week
Cutting for summer.

That's it till tomorrow, here are a few pics. The first one for some reason won't acknowledge that it's resized, but you get the idea...






Yeah, I know I have a huge nose...I'm Polish

FlyUSMC's Sig:We can rebuild him...

Man, do not cut! You can bulk up and that will mask any little bit of fat you have. (Standing up straight with your chest out also help get rid of the stomach flab ) You don't have much muscle, so cutting will make you look super skinny. I don't think you'd be happy with the look you'd get from a cut. Just my $0.02, its your choice.

The journal's a good choice too. It will definitely help you keep on track...especially with all of us constantly looking at it to make sure

ps. I'm polish too, I know the curse of the big nose first hand

Wanna know the fun part? That's my natural back curvature...I'm all sorts of jacked up I'm kind of going back and forth between cutting or not. My main concern is that I have free access to a gym while at college, but can't afford a gym membership yet for the summer. Probably won't be able to save up enough for a year membership until summer is over (darn college is ridiculously expensive ) I don't know what I'm going to do about summer, I'd really prefer not to take the entire summer off of lifting, but we'll see what has to happen.

Here's how today's workout went. This week is BAB. 3x5's, unless otherwise noted. (in lbs, for you crazy Canadians )
Squats: 155
Mil. press: 90
Rows: 115
Pulls (locked elbows to chin above bar, 2x8): 25lb
Leg raises (3x12): no weight

Hamstrings are hurting again (discussed in training forum), hopefully they'll stop and I can figure out what's going wrong by Wednesday.

The good news: there was improvement
The bad news: I'm an idiot, and managed to do the A workout again instead of b. I realized this halfway into the bench, then figured I'd just keep going since it was already started. Oh well. Today's dirty work:

Squats: 165 (finally squatted my body weight..)
Bench: 150 (eeked out one set of 155, but realized I wouldn't make it through...no improvement on bench)
Deads: 215
Dips (2x8): 62.5
Abs: done

I had to miss Monday's workout due to being out of town, but today was the B workout again. Squats were a little slow, I'll keep the weight for next week.

Squats: 175
Overhead: 95
Rows: 125
Pullups: 8 warmup, 2x8 w/ 25lb
Abs: done


For anyone who might be watching this journal who missed my post in open convo, I am now planning on training again this summer due to a new hope for my shins. I've stopped bulking, but am maintaining at a 40/20/40 ratio instead of cutting.

Default Fri 4/13 A workout

I was starting to lose form on the squats, but I'll try 5lbs up next week. I think I can fix it just paying a bit more attention, but we'll see. And I have no idea what was going on with my dips today, couldn't do nearly the weight I usually do. Oh well, improvement elsewhere

Squat: 175
Bench: 155
Deads: 225
Dips: 2x8 at 50
Abs: done
