**G's TRAINING LOG**
I'm currently 22 years old, about 5'7", 162lbs, and studying architectural engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia. I've been training consistently since about 18, and have loved it ever since. When i started, i weighed around 145lbs at the same height, and have gotten up to as much as 184lbs in the winter (although most was excess bodyfat). Training is something that i truely enjoy, and I have used it to help during some rough times in my life and to help deal with stress etc.
I wanted to start keeping this log to help get back on track, and to be more accountable for my actions. Over the past few years, i've done the whole college thing and have kind of gotten too much into partying etc. and have had too many distractions. I want to continue to progress with training and bodybuilding, and to do well and graduate school. By writing things down, i've found it has helped tremendously to get me to where i want to be. I want this log to be the start of the "new me."
I'd say i'm more of a powerlifter at heart, and love going heavy on compound, olympic style lifts most often. There is a part of me that does love to look shredded and staying lean in the summer, with more of a bodybuilding training style as well. I find myself switching back and forth between the two, but i do enjoy going heavy most!
My personal best bench was 290lbs at a weight of 162lbs, and a deadlift of 405lbs at the same weight. I've only competed once in a bench-off at my old gym, and won my weight class. I'd like to compete in bodybuilding sometime within the next 5 years, although i won't commit until i feel ready and that i would do well. Right now i'm focused on cutting/staying lean for summer, which has been going pretty well so far. I'd like to add some quality lean mass, and would like to get my overall weight up to around 175lbs at the same body-fat levels i'm at now.
*Please feel free to add any comments/advice to my training etc. along the way. Id love to have feedback from you guys, and I know i can always learn more. I'll try to keep it updated as much as possible, but sometimes with school and stuff it can be a little difficult. Thanks for reading, and i hope you enjoy my log!
