So this is my log. I'm really looking forward to logging here, People are were acive here and the feedback seems to be constructive and heartwarm :keke:
I am already in my fifth week of Eric Cresseys excellent Maximum Strength, I'll listen to anyone who can deadlift 650 pounds at a bodyweight of 165.
All my numbers will be in kilos, as I dont feel like getting out my calculator each time i log on.
Age: 27 years old (1981 hell yeah baby!)
Weight: 77,5 kg (I've been as high as 92 the summer of 2006 and hit 74 this spring, and was quite ripped
Max lifts (now these are my recently tested postripped puuuny lifts from July :angrydude:)
Box Squat: 110 kg
Bench: 90 kg
Deadlift: 140 kg
Broadjump: 180 cm
Three rep Max Chin up 27,5 kg
My goals are:
-Increased strength on the three powerlifting lifts
-Low BF %, but not at the expense of strength gains
I tend to read a lot on training and diet, it sort of evolved to being my hobby. I started to train when I was 20 semiserious during highschool and laid it off for a few years during University. After seing how serious the Argentines were with their training and after attending the mr Argentina contest during my semester abroad in 2005 my appetite for bodybuilding returned. Unfortunately a broken knee and a seriously f..... up shoulder put an end to it all in summer of 2006. Its been an uphill battle ever since.
It's all inspired by John Berardi, I have his Precision Nutrition package which I highly recommend. I eat as an Ecto-mesomorph, meaning I can't live without my carbs but tend to keep them higher in the morning and PW. I try to eat vegetables at every meal and like my healthy fats.
Fish oil is a must and I aim for about 3000 mg of DHA and EPA a day. They also keep my joints out and running, If it hadn't been for them my shoulder would have vilted away by now. :methman:
GlucoXtra with 1200 mg of Chrondroitin, 1500 mmg of Glucosamine and 2000 mg of MSM, I doubt I'd be as pain free as I am without them.
Omnimin multivitamin tabs
Ultimate Nutrition Massive Weight Gainer, only used pre/during/PW, The closet thing to Surge, which is ridicously expensive
Regular Whey in the morning on my oats
Casein blended in yoghurt makes for a nice late night snack
Seems like a lot to outsiders but I'm sure some of you laugh at this puny list
Life and daily activities:
Before and during my studies I travelled a lot. I lived 2 years in Ecuador, my wife is Ecuadorian, half a year in Argentina and 5 months in Brazil. I want to be able to continue with my travelling but the dilemma in combining travelling and serious weight training is tremendous. But where there is a will there is a way. For the time being at least I will concentrate on finishing my thesis so that should give me a few months of stability in the charming town of Aalborg, North Jutland!
And now finally for the log, as said I am weak, so bear with me!
