From Newb to Monster
Hello forum! This will be where I keep all of my training logs located for now. Basically, I am doing this just to show people how much can change when you start out as being a new lifter that never touched a barbell and get on a protocol with proper nutition and all. For the last 3 months I have been doing ICF 5x5 and have really just been eating around 3300cal a day which was well over what I should have been. I am currently eating at 2500cal a day (My maintenance level is 2700 calories roughly as I ate at that level for about a month and gained no additional weight nor did I lose weight) as I want to lose some of my fat since it does bother me at this point, and I would like to be able to see the gains I make. So I guess you can consider this a 3 month old lifters log.

Age: 18
Weight: 199lbs
Height: 5'10.5"
Program: ICF 5x5

I was in Marching Band my freshman and sophomore year...amazingly enough we did lots of wall sits and calf raises in a non-traditional sense.

Squats are at a healthy weight.

No problem. In a year from now I would like to be able to look back on this and say, "That's how I started, this is what I did. Go for it." We'll see how far I'm able to go though.

Great start. Keep pushing for your best each day and know that some days it won't be there, but move on and don't worry about it.

Marching band does wall squats and calf raises? Who knew? :)

Get it man. Good job putting up pictures. Transparency goes a long way. Cut until you are comfortable and then put on some slabs of beef!
