Current Stats Age: 40 Height: 6 feet Weight: 235 Returned to lifting in June after a 1 year hiatus due to injury. Working a linear progression since I restarted. Linear progression has been continuous, with one setback for my pressing exercises due to some sort of strain. Top lifts right as of date: Deadlift: 5x465 (12/12/2010) Squat: 5x405 (11/1/2010) Bench: 5x280 (11/5/2010) Press: 5x190 (11/17/2010) I've not yet tried a single on deads or squats, but the current 5RM are greater than my old 1 RM, which makes every workout pretty exciting. I did do some singles on the press so that I could cross off my "Race to 185 challenge", but I'd already done have of my 5 rep workout, so I was pretty tired and only went to 1x190 (update: Which i'm now doing 5 reps with!). I do 4 workouts which consist of one of the above lifts and no assistance work on a rotating basis. To go through all 4 workouts and back to the first may take anywhere between 7 and 10 days. I'm eating 4 normal meals and drinking 4-5 gallons of milk per week. By "normal", I'm referring to 600-800 calories per meal. Milk adds about 1500 additional calories and 100 grams of protein. Supplements: 1. Mulitvitamins (Adam NOW Men's) 2. Fish Oil (6-12 capsules per day depending on how often I remember to take them) 3. Optimum Nutrition Protein whey shake after lifting 4. Endurox R4 (carb-protein drink) after any exhaustive cardio (primarily post BJJ). 5. Occasionally take GABA to help sleep. Overall program includes 2-3 nights of BJJ per week, as well as 1-2 cardio sessions (in the form of long fast walks) per week. Current short term lifting goals: 1. 225 Press 2. 500 Deadlift - probably in reach within a few weeks 3. 500 Squat - hopefully at the end of the year 4. 315 Bench - primarily an ego lift at this point. I've done this before, and want to be able to do it again. however, I've down prioritized bench over every other lift, so I'll probably hit the others first. Long term lifting goals: 1. 600 Squat 2. 600 Dead 3. Bodyweight press 4. Bench - don't really care as long as I don't get hurt, but if I can push closer to 400, it would certainly help my total if I decide to compete power lifting. I have kept written logs of my lifting for more than 15 years. Not far from my desk is a stack of spiral bound notebooks that track back to my time in grad school. This is my first attempt at an electronic log (which will be secondary to the spiral bound book that follows me to the gym).
