This is my first log so bear with me no this one :)

I will try and keep this short and sweet :)

So here's it is:

I first got into weights from wrestling, when we would do plate workouts and A LOT of pushups/pullups/RopeClimbing, and in the offseason I knew the only way i would get better is to lift weights and work on my cardio. I am currently a Junior in high school and im looking to wrestle 171 next year and gain 20lbs of muscle over the summer. (Hard but I'll try my best)

About me and the journal:

Age: 17
Height: 5'11

Max bench: 220 (Did on second routine, 190x5)
Max squat: 316 (Did today, 275x5)
Max deadlift: Will go for max this week.
Goals: Gain muscle for next years wrestling season.
Suppliments: Opti-Men, Fish/Flax oil, 100% Whey, Casein at night, and Shock Therapy sometimes before I lift.

Todays Lifts: (from EXMGQ's Extended Routine)

What does your diet look like? Im trying to get mine all settled and it seems we are pretty much the same build except your a tad younger and a little bigger then i am, but who cares.

Or do you just eat anything/everything?

What does your diet look like? Im trying to get mine all settled and it seems we are pretty much the same build except your a tad younger and a little bigger then i am, but who cares.

Or do you just eat anything/everything?

I try to eat lean, and still get as much protein in as i can, Usually eggs+oatmeal in the morning

a handful of almonds at like 10 at school

then i eat me lunch i packed in the morning (sandwich, chewy bar, apple/orange + banana, and some other stuff)

Another handful of almonds at 2

Usually eat some more food right when I home at 3

Dinner at 5, usually some meat and veggies

Lift at 7-8:15ish

Then drink my protein shake and eat some cherrios post workout

And finally my new post workout drink: 1 Scope Casein, 2 Cups Skim milk, 1 Tablespoon peanut butter.

If anyone has some suggestions as to how to get more protein that would be appreciated ^^

07-22-2009, 05:00 PM
Havent lifted much in the past 3 Weeks because I have had wrestling camps/Practices/Tournies

However I recently Purchased the 5/3/1 by Jim Wendler, not because i didn't like the IA's simple power lifting routine but rather I think this one might suit me better and I really need strength more then anything for wrestling as i found out during my wrestling tourny (got out-muscled) Also on off days I will be running about 2 miles, because I was REALLY winded after about 3 Minutes of wrestling and that definitely needs to change.

So Today I started the 5/3/1!

Now for the lifts: Squat day ::


Squat: 225x5 : 245x5 : 255x10 (PR by 1 pound haha)

Leg Press: 210x20 : 220x20: 220x20 : 210x20 : 210x20 (forgot we where doing 5 sets xD)

Leg Curls: 40x10 : 50x10: 60x10
__________________________________________________ ______________________

Overall my legs are hurting pretty good as I'm typing this (hour after) this was supposed to be an easy day but as I havent lifted in awhile thats why im feeling this sore I presume.

Looking forward to results ^^

Comments welcome :)

07-24-2009, 09:21 PM

Chinups/Parallel Grip: 5 Sets of 10 reps. Yup these wherent to bad but where harder as the sets when on but i got em all...

Okay today was a holy shit day, and my legs are feeling it!

Squats: 215x3; 245x3; 275x10 (+27lb personal record!) I was soooo close to getting 11, but i only 1/2 repped it and didn't count it, that would of been +31...

08-02-2009, 10:07 PM
So a little nutrition today, got 11 hours of sleep so my breakfast was lunch...
Lunch: 1Cup Ezekiel cereal+1 bagel+about 9oz grape juice/+multi, fishoil, ect
Late Lunch: 2 chicken wraps
Later Lunch: 2 Cups milk+2 Bananas+1 instant breakfast+1 some healthy Omega oil+some malt powder
Pre Lifting: 1 Cup Oatmeal + 5g Glutamine, 5g Creatine mono
Post workout: 1 Scoop Whey+5g Glutamine
60 Mins post: 12oz water+ Gatorade powder (dextrose)
Throughout the day: Handfuls of mixed nuts, sunflower seeds, and 3 bottles of water [17oz]
Now ill probably have some red meat and some more water, then casein+peanut butter before i go to bed.

ONTO the lifting! I modified this routine today a little bit by taking out the DB pressing and putting in stuff i need to work a little more on...

145x3; 165x3; 185x10(PR up 7)

DB Incline:
55x8; 55x8; 60x8; 65x8

T-Bar Row: (weights only)
100x6; 115x6; 135x6; 180x10 [Been awhile but i think i kept good form]

Kroc Row:
75x20; 75x20; 75x20; 75x20; 75x20 [had to use a strap with my left arm because for some reason my left just isnt as strong, so i used a strap for the first 3 sets]

OVERALL today seemed VERY easy, im not sure if its because I used creatine/Glut preworkout for the first time in a longgg time, or because it was just an easy day...

Anyways I might get some progress pictures up and some vids so you guys can help me perfect my form.

08-09-2009, 10:36 PM
Thanks mate, its hard to compare myself to other people, cause nobody seems to be the same height/weight lol

I'm just under 6'1" and have 20+ lbs on you (at 10-15% bf) yet you are still much stronger than me. I think you need more food man.

08-09-2009, 11:16 PM
Thanks for the input but heres my problem:

Im pretty tall and I put on 25 pounds about 2 weeks after wrestling, and since then ive only put on about 5 pounds this summer. Im guessing im still at the same BF% because i still have my 6 pack (Im around 8%) and have been eating as much as I can...

But trust me, its not easy because for 4 months during wrestling i was going a couple of days by just eating apples during the week and having 2 hours of HIIT wrestling...

My stats have skyrocketed, but my weight has only went up slighty, and for all i know its from the creatine*water retention* So im kinda puzzled as to how to put on more weight for wrestling this year. My goal was wrestling 171 @ 6% BF, but thats pretty much out of the question now...

Current supps: ON whey, Casein, Creatine mono, Now ADAM, Greentea Extract, CLA. I average about 1.25gProtein/bodyweight on off days, 1.5-75g/ on off

Any input guys?

08-10-2009, 11:18 PM

Man you've got some sick lifts for 158lb. at 6ft....must be really lean.

If your trying to gain your probably going to be needing more than 2500 calories though

Overall Todays workout was good, but there was an older guy in the gym that had country on the stereo, that didnt help get me pumped up, it did the opposite xD... Today was also the first day I'm trying the TrueProtein TeamSkip Blend + T.P. Waxy maize. Looking forward to using this.

Do you by any chance know what your vertical jump is? Squats and vertical jump don't exactly go hand in hand, but they do help. Some mofo's have 600 pound squats at around 200-220 bodyweight and they FLY up, was wondering if you were one of them lol. 405 squat at a bw of 160 would sure fit that category.

09-21-2010, 10:05 PM
yea a 405 squat+ at 160 is incredible especially for the age. Can't believe you are 6' tall and under 160 too, even more ridiculous.
