I decided to make my first training log, as I am starting a new routine tomorrow it seems like a good time to start one. I guess I'll start by where I am in my training.
I am 35 years old, 5'8, 175lbs. I started weight training for the first time in a little over a year about 2 1/2 months ago. I have been away from weights due to an injury, then training for endurance events, followed by another injury. I am completely 100% now and feel really good. I did starting strength for the first few months to get back into doing heavy compound lifts and get my strength up to decent levels. I am going to move into a 5x5 starting monday (the Bill Starr/Madcow version). I am eating a few hundred over maintance and have gained about 10lbs in about 10 weeks. I don't count calories or macros, but I have a good feel of what I need to eat and have never had any problems bulking or losing weight when I wanted to. I try and keep my protein high, carbs and fat moderate.
My lifts right now are as follows (all 3x5 rep maxes):
Overhead Press 120lbs
Row 145lbs (row is lagging, I was doing pullups and cleans for a while. Decided to switch to rows, and started pretty light, I think they will come up quick)
Going to use these weight tomorrow on the last heavy set to start the 5x5:
