First off, its good to see some familiar faces on the boards after having not been on here in a couple years. I look forward to going through your logs and learning some things.

With Tuesday being my Day 1, I’ll be starting this program when that comes around next week. With working 55 hours a week and taking 5 classes I opted to put gym membership $$ and gas $$ towards the u-90 Powerblock (up to 70 lb) to save time since the nearest gym isn’t too close.

Goals
Primary
Current weight: 142 lb
Target weight: 147 lb at the end of the first circle (5 weeks)
Secondary
Increase strength numbers

Workout Schedule
Tuesday: Lift
Wednesday: Off
Thursday: Lift (10% less weight for work sets)
Friday: Off
Saturday: Lift (20% less weight for work sets)
Sunday: Off
Monday: Off

Exercises
DB Squat: warm-up, warm-up, work-set, work-set
DB Press: warm-up, warm-up, work-set, work-set
DB Row: warm-up, warm-up, work-set, work-set
DB One Arm Shoulder Press: work-set, work-set
DB Stiff Leg Deadlift: work-set, work-set
DB Curl: work-set, work-set
DB Single Leg Calf Raise: work-set, work-set

Set Info
Warm up 1: ¼ weight of work set, 60 sec rest

Five Week Cycle
Week 1: 8 reps x 4 sets
Week 2: 9 reps x 4 sets
Week 3: 10 reps x 4 sets
Week 4: 11 reps x 4 sets
Week 5: 12 reps x 4 sets

- If required reps are reached on the fifth week, increase weight by 10% and repeat the cycle.
- If required reps are NOT reached, repeat the cycle.


Daily Diet
Two smoothies: milk, banana, oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate
500 - 1,000 mL of milk
2-4 boiled eggs
Two portions of meat: chicken, pork chops, hot dogs, hamburgers, etc.
Two portions of carbs: potatoes, pasta, brown rice
A good portion of yogurt
Throw in veggies here and there

Was off for a week for finals and then off for another due to vacation in Ireland. Did a lot of mountain hiking so took a few days off when I got back to completely rest my legs. Today I’m checking my 10 rep max’s to see if there are any changes for when I start next week.

10 rep max calculation
DB Squat: 53 lb (Up 8 lb)

DB Press: L: 30 lb (Up 2 lb) / R: 30 lb (Up 5 lb)

DB Row: 36 lb (Up 8 lb)

DB One Arm Shoulder Press: L: 26 lb (No change) / R: 27 lb (Down 1 lb)

DB Stiff Leg Deadlift: 50 lb (Up 7 lb)

DB Curl: 19 lb (Up 2 lb)

DB Single Leg Calf Raise: 46 lb (Up 3 lb)


Overall I am happy for increases and hope to improve my consistency going forward.
