I haven't been on this forum for a while, but I'm bored and it seems I'm not going to be approved for the other forum i signed up for a couple months ago, so I might as well post here.
I've stopped with the personal trainer a few months ago and started with a 5x5 routine on my own, but shortly gave up on that because it was taking too much time and now am doing 3x5 after warm ups and sometimes doing some heavy singles, doubles or triples afterwards just for fun
It's basically the starting strength program with rows instead of power cleans because I can't do them properly at the gym i go to.
Numbers are like this now
height - 6' 3" (~190 cm)
weight - 181 lbs (~82.1 kg)
bodyfat - 19.88% (navy method)
Squat - 1x 165 lbs (~74.8 kg) with belt
Deadlift - 1x 205 lbs (~93 kg) with belt
Bench - 1x 130 lbs (~59 kg)
Press - 4x 80 lbs (~36.3 kg)
Pullups - 3x 3
Not sure if any of those numbers are even ok for someone my size with 5 months training really, but I am sort of embarrassed by them. I know my deadlift is probably a lot higher, because 205 was not that hard and have drastically improved form and gained ~15 pounds since i did that. More in there on the squat too i think, but the rest is all out or close to it.
3 weeks ago I weighed 183 lbs but I'm just sick of eating so weight is down a little. I think I've decided to cut fat some then try to maintain my weight till it isn't so hot, mostly to give myself a break from eating so much, and partly because being fat and weak is just not acceptable to me. If that bodyfat % is close to accurate I'm assuming ~170 lbs is the goal.
I am also adding in some cardio a few times a week for 30 - 40 minutes on non lifting days. Will maybe put together some sort of strongman medley type thing in the back yard for one of those days, but not sure yet.
If this interferes with strength gains too much I'll scrap the whole plan and just keep forcing myself to eat this summer and do some interval training a few times a week to bring fitness levels up.
Also, I did take some pictures in february but they didn't turn out so I deleted them. It kind of sucks, I know I am much bigger than I was in december, but I don't really have anything to compare to really see the difference all this work has made.
