    Hello one and all. Thanks for stopping by! This log will be full of my lifting, rowing & running.

    Currently 27, 180lbs, best lifts are 350/240/420, 265 tng bench. Have been on 5/3/1 for about a year now. I record all my sets so I'll probably post some regularly. I lift in my garage, and the accumulation of bigger and better equipment will be part of the story. Been a vegetarian for over a decade. I'd like to get to 400/300/500 as a goal.

    January 1st

    Squat (Week 1 of 5/3/1 cycle)
    10x45
    10x45
    5x135
    3x185
    5x235
    5x275
    7x310

    310 felt fine, and I was happy with that. I'm redo-ing the last 5/3/1 cycle I did because I missed the 1's week. Last time around I did 5x310 and it was a much greater struggle.

    I skipped out on the assistance to meet up with a friend who no-showed. fml.

    Going to cook a kale + feta cheese + garlic/lemon pasta tonight. Its ****ing delicious.

    I only managed 2x245, which i attribute to having my sohp day 2 days ago. My schedule was: all over the place last week so I expected a rough day. Things have settled down so I'm looking forward to downshifting and getting back in the fast lane.

    January 9th, Wednesday

    Deadlift 15/2 (15/2 is a reference for my 15th cycle of 5/3/1, and 2nd week of that cycle)

    10x135
    5x135
    3x225
    3x275
    3x315
    4x355 Mixed grip
    10x235
    10x235
    10x235
    10x235
    10x235

    The dieting phase has begun. 100% for vanity, it is what it is. Gonna try and keep my eating on off-lifting days down, hopefully lose 5-7 lbs of fat over the next few months. I'm curious as to what my gains will look like over that span.

    Edit: I'm also getting really close to pulling the trigger on a power rack. I'm looking at one by New York Barbell, ordered via Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Super-Power-Rack-attachments-added/dp/B0002U2U1K/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

    Its so much cheaper than other 1000lb rated racks, but doesn't seem to have any serious flaw, so I may have to get it. I can only keep squatting with more than the weight rating on my current flimsy squat stand for so long.
