    Default Going to a dark place...

    And when I come out, I will be a different person.

    Stats:

    17 years old
    5'8
    185lbs.
    approx. 15-18% bf

    Best lifts:
    Bench: 185
    Squat: 270
    Deadlift: 300
    Power Clean: 175

    My goals are basically to improve myself physically and mentally as much as possible. I want to:

    -Get up to a 3.0 GPA by the end of this school year.
    -Get to 10% bf by this upcoming spring break
    -Hit 200lbs. (a year from now not this calendar year) @ less than 14% bf
    -Get down to an 8 min. mile time and 12 minute 1 1/2 mile time.
    -Eat as clean as possible
    -Get a 1000+ total in the big three (b,s,d)
    -Hit 40ft in shotput

    I am not going to be specifically training for shotput, but I will be focusing on bench, squats, and power cleans and that is a pretty generic workout to do to improve.

    I want to go to a dark place where only MY goals, MY dreams, and MY life exist. I want to prove to myself that I can do something worthwhile.

    I start Monday. I will plan my diet out, and any extra cardio I want to do other than the Tuesday and Thursday 1 1/2 mile run I'd normally do in my weight training class.

    Good luck bud. At 17, you are WAY ahead of the power curve.

    One word of advice though, you are 17, don't forget to have fun and bang as many little high school hotties as you can.

    lol at least one female is gonna pay even remote attention to me.

    Today is the beginning.

    Barbell Squats (ATG): 150x10

    Barbell Bench: 115x10/ 115x10

    Power Cleans: 95x8/ 95x8

    V-bar Dips: BWx8, BWx6

    Comments:
    The sheet we have to follow for weight training is so dumb. There's no progression lol, and high reps on cleans are not good. I'm probably gonna just do my own thing.

    Diet (Not so good):
    1: 4 hardboiled eggs, 2 tbsp. natty pb
    2: 3 mozzarella string cheese things
    3: ham/ cheese sandwich on wg bread (pre-w/o)
    4: Whey shake, wg waffles
    5: Whey shake in milk, 1 tbsp. natty pb
    6: 1 chicken breast, large box of DOTS candy, large corn muffin
    7: will be cottage cheese

    Comments:
    I need more veggies, and no more junk food. Also, I gotta pack my shake in a shaker bottle so I can get the shake in me while I'm at school, not 35 minutes after I lift.

    Overall, a decent start. Tomorrow will be the true test with the 1.5 mile run we do every Tuesday and Thursday. I wanna get in the 15 minute zone.

    You read my mind with your comments... Powerclean +5 reps = no-no for me, you need more veggies and less crappy food But I think you're getting in a fair amount of protein and that's really good.

    yeah form starts to deteriorate.

    In terms of diet, I got all kinds of tempting foods around my house. I just gotta not get tempted by them. =/
