I have decided to keep a log of my journey to a leaner and stronger me. I have another thread here that just kind of started out talking about losing weight and what not. This will be a more structured journal to keep track of my weights and the strength side of things. I am going to use this to keep up with my progress and keep me motivated along the way. I started training 2/21/11. I had been out of the gym for a while and gained a ton of fat along the way (in addition to what I already had). So I finally made it back into the gym after dieting a bit on my own since December.
My main goal that I am working on right now is to get to 10% BF and I will be happy with whatever weight I am at when I get there. I have NEVER been lean and I decided that is where I want to be. I am 5'8" and when I started this whole process, I was 192lbs and about 24%BF!! As of right now, I am staying steady at about 173lbs and around 16%BF...judging by my calipers and a digital BF. So I started my lifts on 2/21/11 and I have logs for every workout since, but don't want to enter all of those now. So, what I am going to do is list my weights the first night I started, and the weights that I have done this week. Then I will start keeping up with it weekly.
Oh yeah, I just started back so these weights will be MUCH MUCH lighter than what you guys are used to around here!! But I am working on that.

One thing is the weights I used the first week may have been a little light (not much really) but I was trying to get the techniques down and what not. I obviously do accessory work in addition to these but I don't want to post up the entire workout, so these are the main two lifts each day. I have strength goals as well but the BF is the main goal.
My strength goals would be:
Bench:225 (always been weak here so I don't want to set the goal too high)
Anyway, I hope this journal is formatted pretty good. I'll begin adding weekly starting next week as today was my last lift day this week.
