Cool Starting my powerlifting career with Madcow's 5x5 : tank's training log!

What this log is all about...

After lifting on and off for a couple years using sh*tty split routines and fighting genetics with diet plans, I finally decided to trim body fat by starting a strength routine and doing cardio between lifting days. 3 weeks into my routine and I have seen the light....

....I don't want to be a bodybuilder. I want to be a powerlifter. I am finally having fun. I've always enjoyed working out, but I thought it was because I was "sculpting". Really, I liked getting bigger and stronger.

A few years ago I used Starting Strength for a number of months (can't remember exactly how many) and honed my technique in the big 3. After completing SS, I moved on to various inefficient splits that used the big 3, but not for what they were meant. As of October 25 (starting date of current training cycle) my lifts were: 235 x 5 / 200 x 5 / 275 x 5


Goal: To use linear progression until it stops working to become as strong as possible.

Stats: 24 years old male, 200 lbs.

Training: Madcow's variation of Starr's 5x5 until linear progression ceases after several stalls and resets.

Diet: Eat tons.

Supplements: Myofusion (Protein), Fish Oil

I work night shift, and I'm deployed, so that's why the times and dates may seem crazy. It may be easier to understand if you add 12 hours to all the times I write. I'm going to "transfer" my log from another site, so the next few posts will be from prior workouts. I'm bored at work, so I have time to get them up here.


To all regular posters and motivators: I look forward to your input and following your training too! I also look forward to logging from the very beginning of my powerlifting career through many meets and victories and learning from all of you!!

Thanks for stopping in!
