Alright I'm going to start a journal on here to keep track of my gains and to garner a little support if I can. I have been working hard for the past year and half to cut fat and and build lean mass. I've cleaned up the diet and it's getting down to the wire now and I need a little support I suppose.
Alright a little personal info. I've lifted off and on for the past 10 years and been dedicated to it for the past year and half. Last May in 2006 I tipped the scale at 289lbs. Right now I range from 212 to 205! Made it to 199 once but was a shirt and pants size bigger then compared to where I am now. Right now I weigh less than I did coming into high school.
A little about my currents:
Bench: 250 5x5 (last max 315)
Dead: 225 3x8 (haven't tried for a max)
Standing dumbbell military: 70's 3x8
Squat: 225 3x8
Hanging Dips: +25 3x15+
Unassisted wide grip pull ups(lats): 4 now lmao ( and I'm proud of that hahah, it's hard to lug 200 lbs up there.)
Not sure about my BMI, but I will add my body fat percentage soon. As well I will add my workout to this journal to be critiqued although I am already considering the possibility my volume is too high, and I may not be focusing enough on compound lifts. Anyways this is just a start. I'll be adding to it.
