View Full Version : arc10791's Training Log

09-02-2009, 03:37 PM

I've been lifting on and off for a little over a year now. I never really committed myself diet-wise or training-wise so this journal is to help me keep consistent for my training.

In May 2008 I was 120 or 122 at 5'7". I could barely bench 65 pounds haha let alone attempting to squat or deadlift. I really just followed my friend who wrestled and could push decent amounts of weight already.

Now in September 2009 I'm 135 at around 5'7 1/2" or 5'8''. I can bench 145, squat 225, and deadlift 205 (haven't tried more on the DL). I haven't got extremely bigger or anything, just more cut and a little more mass. I'm pretty glad the way things are going. I'm headed to college at UCSD in a few weeks and I think it'll be easier to regulate my diet there than it is at home.

I just started IA's recommended teen starting workout. And I'm going to keep track of weight increases through this Training Log.

Thanks for reading my log!
