Hey!

I'm Zoe, and I think it's about time I start tracking my training and diet correctly so I can see the best results possible. I competed in powerlifting for the first time last month and now I'm even more motivated to lift some HEAVY weights.
Here are my totals from the meet:
Image
I set the MD state record in my weight class!



My goal this year is to hit 300+lbs. in both squat and deadlift. And for bench I'd like to press 135lbs.
I figure if I went from never going to the gym to competing in powerlifting in one year, then these numbers aren't THAT intimidating.
I also plan to start a slow cut next week. I just want to get down to about 123lbs and see if it effects my strength then go from there.
I welcome any advice and criticisms on my training and diet, whatever I need to reach these goals.

After the competition I started my training based on a Westside Hybrid training program. Mostly, this template by Joe Defranco:http://www.defrancostraining.com/articles/38-articles/65-westside-for-skinny-bastards-part3.html
I enjoy the variety so far, but I also need to read up more on it.

Today is my off day, I might do some GPP but...then again maybe not.
Here's my week so far...

DB curls= 15x15/20x8/20x10/20x12

Wednesday 1/18
Did tabata intervals in the garage of our "house" with the bf. We live in the 2nd floor apartment above an autobody shop/ paint shop/ glass shop/ hip-hop studio. We are regularly asked what the hell we're doing since we look like a weird prison workout session.
Sledgehammer hits
Push-ups
BB rows
tricep dips
+ hung up some chains from one of the rafters to do "trx" style rows and presses.

I really need to do more cardio like this, I have no endurance whatsoever.

Thursday 1/19

neutral grip 3/9@ 40 lb assisted
wide-grip 12 @ 46lbs assisted

DB Military Press= 50x8/50x10/50x10/50x8
Superset of DB shrugs + DB hammer curls= 60x10/20x8
60x10/20x10
60x10/20x10

Cardio:30 min incline walk avg HR 130bpm.

Tomorrow is deadlift day! Yay!

Still tweaking the cutting diet, right now I'm TRYING to hit 2250 cals a day but usually going over a little bit. My macros are 193.5 g protein, 70g fat, 211.5 g carbs. I almost ALWAYS go over in carbs.

Despite this, I think I've lost almost a pound within the last week but I still need to clean up my diet a bit.

Wednesday 2/1

Since it was AMAZINGLY warm and beautiful outside I rode my bike to Druid Hill Park after work.
There's a track around the lake that is about a mile long, also around the track are 3 different stations of "workout" equipment. ex: row machine, dips, pull-ups, etc.
Soooo I rode 1.5-1.7 miles around the track then did a tabata at each of the stations.
I did this 4 times which comes out to 4 tabata rounds and about 6 miles of cycling.
