    Hey guys, figured I'd keep track of my workouts once again with this log, as I did once before on "another' website. I'm 18 and weigh in the upper 150's, and plan to compete in the IPA and/or IPF for a state record in the 148lb. class. I've been serious about some sort of competition for a while, and figured it's time to get my ass in gear. Until I am of age, I'll be competing in the 18-20 y/o class (Called the junior class, I believe) with hopes of achieving some sort of esteemed total, and possibly achieve record lifts. I've been through a number of training routines since I began weight training (a few years ago) and I've been sporadic with watching calories and assuring I am eating enough. That all, is about to change. I am forcing myself to be consistent with my diet, as well as in the gym. I came across a few good training routines (5/3/1 and Westside Barbell) which I have become very fond of. The chance to increase weight lifted at a light bodyweight gives me a reason to tell all of the "haters" off. But for right now, I haven't done any competition sports in years, and this will be great introduction to get the competitive juices flowing. Enough rambling, here are current stats:

    5'8"
    ~156lbs.
    Bench-225
    Squat-315
    Deadlift-355

    **Haven't had a one rep max day in a good while, so this is my best to date**

    Daily Caloric Goals- 4000 calories, not too strict on fat and carbs, just want enough protein.

    I am on a Westside Barbell routine, utilizing the conjugation method in conjunction with max effort and dynamic effort days. My goal is to break one of the Maryland State records under the IPF and/or IPA, and achieve a 1000+lb total. Let's roll.


  2. Hell yeah in for this!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    Just think to yourself that it's just a number, because that's honestly all it is. My will cannot be measured with a number! Think of it that way

  22. 8/8/2011 Dynamic Effort Upper Body


    Dynamic Effort Upper Body

    Flat Bench 10 sets of 3 @ 135, 3 seconds per set, Various grips

    Decline Bench db Press 45lb db's 3 sets of 20

    Tricep Pressdown, 60 reps total, about 8-10 reps per set (Made sure I hit 60 reps total)

    Reverse Pec Deck fly (Rear Delts) 115lbs 2x10

    Medial Delt Raise Machine 95lbs. 2 sets of 11

    Facepulls, seated, 110lbs 3 sets of 10


    ***Notes***
    Decent workout day, pretty tired going in but left feeling pretty good. My breakfast lacked enough calories, and I'm spending the rest of the day catching up. Hopefully I can set some new numbers on maxes in the coming weeks.

  23. using any bands or chains for DE work?
    Serious Nutrition Solutions

  24. Yes I use chains on bench and bands on box squats. I only have two sets of bands but I love them and hope to get more soon.
