Hi all, I'm new here and decided to start a journal. I was thinking of what to call my journal and I couldn't think of anything creative, so I picked something that would motivate me. I want to weigh 190lbs at 10-12%. That is my long term goal, when I reach it we'll go from there. Right now I am 175 lbs, just under 5'11" and fairly lean. I would estimate 12%bf.
I've been training for over 2 years now, it will be 3 years in May. I started out at 135 lbs with no muscle or fat on me. I remember after working out for a few months and measuring my arms and being happy they had finally reached 12"..
Right now I am starting to train using the following split:
I got the split out of Charles Poliquin's book, The Poliquin Principals. I'm going to be focusing a lot on rest/pauses and negatives. I'll switch up the rep schemes and maybe exercises ever 3 weeks or so, depending if I'm progressing.
I'm going to try to bulk up a from now until mid May, then do a HIT cycle to drop a bit of fat before summer.
I'll post my first workout tomorrow.
