SUP. This is my first real log of any kind, so don't expect it to be amazing. I figured I'd make a log to chart my progress as far as my training goes now that I'm able to take it seriously. I'm posting this log on bodybuilding.com (where I've been for like a year) and sherdog.net (the most legit MMA forum there is). Anyways, current stats: Age - 17 Height - 6"4' Weight - 190 (fluctuates a bit, from 188 to 193 or so) BF% - I'd say 12-ish Goals (Updated 5/12/08): Short Term: Begin training at home "Ross Style" w/ equipment that I make (x) Start MMA training (will be going to Ultimate Fitness to train with Urijah Faber) Middle Term: Complete a circuit of "25 Rep Roulette" with 100 lbs sandbag Get decent in BJJ, MT and Western Boxing (Also now Judo!) Move to San Diego (Got accepted to SDSU!) Close the 300 lb. gripper with each hand Long Term: Compete in any of the 4 arts mentioned (Three above + actual MMA) at amateur (eventually pro) levels (at either 185 or 205) BJJ black belt while in SD My lifting routine right now isn't really set, but once I start training at UF I'm sure my endurance and cardio will reach the point that I can go back to powerlifting routines. It will probably be 3x3 when that point comes. I have to wait to enroll until I get my license (test is Apr 7). Now, I realize I'm 17, but I've spent plenty of time in the gym since I was a kid, and I've spent even more time reading online. This is why I feel I'm qualified to decide what I supplement with. That being said, I currently supplement with Animal Pak, Lipo 6x (summer cut), ZMA (like the dreams), NO-Xplode (quitting this during cut), and Beta Alanine (just beastly). Additionally, anyone reading this log should understand that when I do something, I give it 100%. That's generaly why I don't do much (lol). Thus, for my summer cut I'm doing the infamous Velocity Diet (TESTOSTERONE NATION. Today was my first day, had 1 shake so far. I noticed when researching this that there really wasn't any definitive list of products to buy for it (the ones on t-nation are outdated), so here's a list of the ones I got for it and their prices (bodybuilding.com): 5 shakes a day, 10 fish oil, 5 flax seed. I take them all together just cause that seems logical (shake, fish oil, flax seed) every time I feel hungry (off days). On training days (3 a week), it's 5 shakes, 5 flax seed tabs and a PWO shake (that's what the Mass Factor was for). Idk how this will make my energy levels when I first start training, but hopefully I'll get through it and be retardedly shredded for summer (6-8% realistic?). I'm sure I forgot something, but I'll be posting hopefully every day, so any questions/comments/whatever will be responded to fairly quickly. Also, I'll do my best to get progress pics. CURRENT (192 LBS): Note: This log no longer contains homo v-dieting. That ended around page 20 or so.
