Hello all. I've decided to start a new journal. I haven't been posting very much for almost a year now but I want to atleast start a new journal so I can better track my progress.
So a little update. I've been slacking off pretty badly the last few months as far as training goes. I've also hit a lot of "bumps" in the road of life that haven't really helped my lifting. However, this past month of the new semester by and large have been going very well as far as my commitment and intensity in the gym. One of the main things that I really slacked off on last semester was diet. As a consequence I've gained quite a bit of fat with a marginal amount of muscle/strength. I've decided to next week start a 3-4 week cut to get myself back from my slobbish state and into a more healthier bodyweight. I also want to use this time to figure out a more accurate estimation of my current 1RM lifts such as dead lifts, bench and squats. A good thing though that has come from last semester was my form in the squat which I've struggled with in the past. I can confidently say that I've been doing/hitting parallel on every squat that I do.
Also this journal is simply for me to record my numbers in. I appreciate criticism and helpful advice but I will probably not be able to return the favor as much as I've done in the past (so please don't take offense).
