6foot's summer Madcow 5x5 log
I'm Greg, just joined yesterday and upon introducing myself i was advised to start a training log so here it goes. I'm 20 about 215 pounds and am 6'3" tall. I play rugby at school but now i'm home for the break. Started madcow 5x5 program last week but was humbled pretty quickly with the amount of squatting i will be doing during the coming weeks. Made some adjustments for this week and actually took the time to find the 10% to 15% increases in my weights.
I'm trying to get stronger this summer and put on some size while doing it. As far as my diet goes i'll quote an article i saw on muscle and strength and just "eat lots of dead animals". I'm not exactly sure where my maxes are right now but they are definitely not the same as they were at the beginning of the season around march. I'd like to get back to those points and beyond this summer. So here it goes
Seated good mornings(Dont have a place to do extensions and was told this was a suitable replacement)
Weighted sit ups
Overall thought it was a goodworkout. tried to keep form as strict as possible on everything. Looking forward to making progress and upping the numbers!
and the weights are all goofy numbers cause my dad has 45 pound plates and then all the smaller plates are all metric. Also found out that the bar we have is only 30 pounds not 45 although it looks like an olympic bar
