Then I hit the gym going mad on running cycling swimming spinning and the likes until I was basically a 11st 5 bag of skin and sinues. Then I started spartan workouts and kettlebell stuff. Put on a bit of lost muscle became a bit defined and thought hey this is good. I am now into week 7 of stronglifts and showing some good gains though beginning to plateau a little here and there.
For once I feel as though my lifting is showing results not massive gains but gains. I'm more focused than ever and keen to improve
I'm here to share my training woes and goals and will greatly accept any help from you guys out there.

My first target was basically gaining a good amount of muscle and I made some gains by doing a split program, which I now know was not optimal for a novice. Lately (somehow inspired by the IceCreamFitness and BBoD-Channel) I got more interested in not only gaining muscle, but also gaining strength and power lifting.
I just started the 5x5 novice program by Jason Blaha from IceCreamFitness a few weeks ago and make good gains on it.
I hope that this forum helps me out with some uprising questions and also with improvement of my form on my major compound lifts. So I hope you guys help me out a bit!

Thanks in advance!
Dominic

When I was in high school my weight was at 305 with a 185 pound bench max. Insane, right? Not my weight is down to 205 with a 295 1rm, 365 squat 1rm, and 405 1rm.

I am currently studying Computer Engineering at Southern Polytechnic State University, but have yet to dive in to the major classes. Looking forward to it, though.

Kind of a lazy guy. I have a hard time recording calories and remaining strict about recording training sessions. It's time to get out of that though.

My philosophy concerning training is that I was always listen to my body and what it can do. It's good to push the limits, but not all the time to where you feel like crap. Pretty simple, but not sure how affective it will be in the long run, so we shall see.

Look forward to hearing from anyone that has any helpful tips. I will post my training schedule later on this week.
Welcome to the forum Tylor.

I am not one to push on off days. Consistency is really key, and if you master that, things should take care of themselves over the long run.

Make yourself at home.

I started Strong Lifts 5X5 at the first of the year and have been loving it. I've been following the program as it is and am on week 8. I was a bit frustrated starting with the light weights, but have adopted a long term perspective about what I want to accomplish. The weights are starting to get heavier, though I haven't had to deload yet. I can feel myself getting stronger and love it!

I have set my goals for the year and I wonder if they are possible? I'm starting to think they are. I want to squat 300, dead lift 400, bench 225, press 185 by the end of the year.

Looking ahead...After I top out of SL 5X5, I'm going to start the Onus Wunsler Starting Strength novice program without the power cleans because I want to dead lift at least once a week.

Thanks,
Scott
Welcome Scott.

Those goals are very possible. The key is consistency and wanting them bad enough. We see guys here each year make progress like that.

Let us know if we can help in any way.

My name is Dylan. Im 15 years old. Ive been training seriously since last may. I weigh 190 and I think im around 15-20 percent body fat. I bench 270 squat 350 and dl 315. Im hoping to put on some more size and strength with icecreamfitness's 5x5 novice program. Glad I found this forum! I just wanted to add my goal is to get big and strong. Id like to bench 400 squat 600 and dl 500 all natural whenever im older. Hopefully starting at 15 I can get close!
