I'm going to keep a log for the next 60 days of my diet and training. In the course of sixty days, I plan on adding 20 pounds to my squat, 40 to my deadlift, and 70 to my bench. While cutting 20 pounds. Naturally. If for some reason I fail, I will do so with shattered wrists, swollen knees, and a herniated disk. =D
Little history on me. When I joined BB.com, I was 15, 5 foot 5 inches, and 280 pounds. At the pinnacle of my obesity I was measured at over 44 percent body fat. Despite being so heavy, I could only bench 75 pounds. I began researching proper diet and training and in the course of 10 months, lost 100 pounds.
Shortly after losing the weight, I started "bulking" and began Rippetoe's. It was an excuse for me to eat what I wanted to and gain weight while believing I was accomplishing something. I made it back to 225. It was discouraging but I managed to add 150 pounds to my squat and 200 to my deadlift in a little over a month.
Since then, I've made virtually no progress. I am only slightly stronger and leaner than I was a year ago. In all honesty, I don't really care about lifting anymore, and dieting has become increasingly difficult. I stopped giving a **** about everything.
Change gonna come.
