Talking Cutty Strength

So here goes. Little background. It's late 2010, 370lbs and I can't tie my own shoes. It's time to change. Started going to a gym just going, doing cardio and losing weight. Met another friend, took me to a powerlifting/hardcore gym and it happened.. I want to powerlift.

Got down to 255lbs off cardio and lifting some and thought, lets go for it. So here it is 2013 and I'm still with it. I had a rocky weight gain (got up to 307), now I'm down to ~294 and dropping (I don't weigh myself often).

I'm doing a Stronglifts 5x5, actually sticking with it (noob mistakes have been made before). I'm on week 8 out of 12 and excited to hit these lifts.

Here's what I did starting from Monday. I do a mwf split.

Monday 1/21/2013:
Bench - 130, 160, 190, 225, 255x5
BB Rows - 100, 125, 150, 175, 205x5
DB Incline - 80, 90, 105x5
Seated Pulldowns - 150, 170, 170x8
Seated Dips - 90, 180, 270, 360x8 (I realized that training my triceps is not needed at this point in training, but I wanted to see if it would help)

I also had the local powerlifters give me a form check on 225x2 on bench and they said I look strong so it's encouraging.

Wed 1/23/2013:
DL - 280, 335, 390, 445x5
Mil Press - 95, 115, 130, 150x5
45 degree reverse hyper - BW, 25, 35x8 (bodyweight, 25lb plate, 35lb plate)
Face Pulls - 60, 70, 80x8
Side Delt Raise Machine - 90, 110, 130x8 (having troubles firing side delt and helping my mil press)
Rear Delt DB - 10, 15, 20x8 (under developed, I try to add this in as much as I can)

So far since week 5 I've been breaking PRs all over, bench being the biggest.

I'll update tomorrow with my results for Friday. It's nice having all of the numbers already in an excel sheet (I can start visualizing my week 12 lifts now).

I don't do squats, the gym is not very good equipment wise for it (I know) but when I get my own place I'll be adding in squats.

Thanks and good luck to everyone with their goals and training logs.

Hey, glad you found the path and are enjoying it!

You made great progress since 2010 and you are friggin' strong for a guy "still getting in shape!"

Awesome things in your future!

Thanks man, it's been pretty encouraging hanging out around here. I'm excited to see what the future brings. I'd like to compete sometime soon, once I get closer to the body comp I'm looking for I will.

Cheers

Anytime , brother...

As for waiting to compete....Pffftt!!!! They measure your lifts...not your body! Go for it if you want to try it.

Many might say your first comp is best just for experience....don't take it too seriously anyway. Then, after that, destroy all competitors without nercy.

Nice job starting up the log Cutty! Stronglifts is the perfect name for what is happening in here so far

I too will be competing for the first time this year, most likely in June! Good luck and we will follow along

Thanks man, keep in touch and let me know how the competition goes. I have a few goals I'd like to hit in gym in regards to lifts and then I'd like to compete and try to beat what I got in the gym on the platform. I think it'd be a good start to something I might actually be good at.

You'll get good insight on this site...

lots of guys find their comp lifts are under their gym lifts...lots of reasons...equipment, comfort zone, nerves....could be anything....many track gym lifts and comp lifts (as separate things)...

sounds like competition will be highly motivating for you! go get some!

I've seen lots of people have comp lifts and gym lifts as well. I figure the comps are go for broke on the third attempt if you hit the others so I figure why not?

I'm stoked to say the least about it.
