Steves Log
 
quick history;

started at 21 at 155lbs, 6'1", with a 100lbs deadlift...

trained for 2 years, arnold's way, and gained 8lbs
read the book Brawn, and adjusted my training
trained another 3 years
then couldn't train for 8 years because of a blood illness
started again 3.5 years ago
I'm now 37
best deadlift is 612

current routine has 3 different days, which alternative on Mondays and Fridays

day 1: deadlift, incline flys, medium grip low-pulley rows, neutral grip face pulls, a bicep exercise (no heavy elbow stuff)
day 2: incline bench, 1-arm pulldowns (with rotation), dumbbell press or standing military, a tricep and a bicep exercise
day 3: dips, 1-arm rows, dumbbell press or standing military, a bicep and a tricep exercise

on Wednesday, I do high volume shoulder work, and legs

current weight is 235, was 255 and with IF, have been cutting down... goal weight is around 220, but no rush, I like pizza and chocolate :)
