Calling all Lifters
Whatup fellow gym rats. This'll be my personal lifting journey thread, I'll include my stats from when I started seriously getting back into it 8 weeks ago, where I'm at now, and every Friday I'll update them as a way to keep track. If you're serious about lifting, feel free to post your current stats and keep track of them as well as the weeks and months progress. It's important to keep each other motivated as we continue our fitness quest for whatever it is we're trying to achieve, whether it to put on mass, lose fat, become stronger, or any combination of the three.
Starting Weight: 202lbs
Current Weight: 207.5 lbs
Time Running Current Program: 8 weeks
Deadlift Start: 225 1x5 (I do a pyramid on this. 2 warm-ups increasing weight, then one 1x5 working set, and 2 more sets decreasing weight after that)
Bench Start: 145 5x5
Squat Start: 185 5x5
Bent-Over Row Start: 155 5x5
Skull-Crusher Start: 60lbs 3x8
Curling Start: 30lbs 3x8
Standing Push Press: 75 5x5
....8 weeks later, What I just did successfully this past Friday.
Deadlift: 345 1x5 and 315 1x5,
Bench: 170 5x5
Squat: 255 5x5 @90 degrees, I can do 225 5x5 ATG
Bent-Over Row: 195 5x5 (slow, controlled movement)
Standing Push Press: 135 5x5
Skull Crusher: 80lbs 3x8
Curls: 40lbs 3x8 (very slow full range of motion movement on the way down.. almost like a negative, I was surprised at how I really only need 3-4 sets of controlled curls to feel a great pump in them)
Isolate. Escalate. Penetrate. Again and again.
