First and foremost, thanks to everyone here who's helped answer my questions, inspired me, to those who've filled the archives with all that goodness , and for just stoppin' by. I've noticed my cut going to shit so I thought I might keep some sense of discipline if I record my progress publicly; furthermore, my workouts in general seem to be getting shitty and my log reflects that. I didn't want to make a thread like this until I had some substantial progress but if I'm lacking in motivation that'll never happen. I keep all my shit in a Livejournal so I'll just copy and paste and cut out all the unnecessary bullshit. Yes, I know my squat sucks. Yes, I know that my bench is even more pathetic. Workout at home, no spotter, no power rack, no car to get my ass to a gym. Ignore everything about snatching. I'm sure my form was shitty on most of 'em. The numbers sucked anyway. All constructive criticism is welcome and encouraged. Bench /Hack S./Deadlift 130/205/300 I'm workin' on it / No rack / Need another pair of plates Left was at the end of March. Right is today, end of July. This was early July. I suck at taking pics, it's a camera phone, bite me. Need leg shots. ---------------------------------------- Fall of '04 5'5"-5'6" 175-180 lbs Start of '06 5'5"-5'6" ~160 lbs 6/12/2006 Minor hyperextension: left bicep (again) Half-Full Squat 135x5 135x5 135x5 135x5 155x1 175x1 Failed 135x5 SLDL 135x10 225x5 225x5 225x5 135x10 6/14/2006 Rest day 141 lbs @ ~12:30 Day 16 of EC stack; started 5/30/2006 126/75 mm HG 65 bpm @ ~13:30 6/28/2006 SLDL 135x10 185x5 220x5 220x5 220x5 Military press 45x5 70x5 70x5 70x5 70x10 Hammer curls 3/25x10 BOBB Row 3/90x5 W.
