Quick about me - 23, Married (un-happily), in training to be a Corrections Officer, work part-time at my Aunt's bakery (We make Tarts, bitch's). Suffered through alot of Muscle Magazine work-outs off and on for a few years. Liked MMA, joined Sherdog, and then saw this sub-forum called essenpee, and thats where this journey began. After I read Carnals Treatise, it said I should eat alot, and sleep alot, and these are two things I do preety well (Proud to say I've put on 15 lbs since my first run through of the 5x5 - my doctor tells me Iam now Obese Class 1) So I figured I'd give it a try. 230 @ 6'1'' After my first run through of the 5x5 from the FAQ, this is where I stand... very weak. MAX'S of the big 3 Deadlift - 315 Bench - 210 Squat - 205 GOALS (As quick as possible) Deadlift - 405 Bench - 225 Squat - 315 (Simple 4 wheel, 2 wheel, 3 wheel) Long term goals are simply to get as strong as possible.
