buffsummers Posted July 4, 2012 Share Posted July 4, 2012 I've been vegetarian/vegan for nearly 10 years, but I was never really one for exercise before this year. Now that I have the goal of becoming a firefighter, I have been strength training for five months and plan to keep it and being generally active as part of my lifestyle. I'm 5'4" and 22 years old. Here's where I started out:- 110 lbs.- 19.7% body fat http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v12/mondaysdone/Photo12101347.jpg My first logged workouts, working mainly on machines:January 26th, 2012Chest Press - 15x10, 15x10, 15x10Lat Pulldown - 15x24, 15x24, 15x24Seated Cable Row - 15x24, 15x24, 15x24Military Press - 15x12, 15x12, 15x12Bicep Curl - 12x7.5, 12x7.5, 12x7.5Tri pressdowns - 12x24, 12x24, 12x24Pull-ups - 8, 8 January 27th, 2012Leg Press - 12x, 12x, 12xBall Squats - 30x, 30x, 30xStraightleg deadlift - 15x15, 15x15, 15x15Calf raises - 15x95, 15x95, 15x95, 15x95 There's been a lot of progress since then (although I won't be writing up the months in between!) and I'm almost halfway through fire school. When I'm done, I'd like to become an ACE Peer Certified trainer. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
