20 Years to find 20 Reps...Worth the trip? (jdmalm123's Bulldozer training log)
So, this is the background/prologue....
35 years old. 6'. 177 lbs. 10% BF. Started lifting at 16, 5'10", 120 lbs. 4% BF.
My notable lifts:
Deadlift: 405x1, 390x3 (My favorite lift)
Squat: 355x1, 315x5
Bench: 250x1, 235x3
Row: 225x5, 135x50
Press: 155x3, 135x5
One-arm Press: 75x4, 65x8
Pull ups: BW+135x3, BW+90x8, BWx22-24
Push ups: 1000+ in one day, 96 in one minute
BB Curl: 135x2, 95x12
Now lifting for 20 years. Personal Trainer for 4 years. Very consistent but lacking purpose for much of that time. Like many others, I've had to unlearn some things. I will train through most injuries. Most significant injury was lumbar disc herniation with surgery in 2000. Trained in gyms most of the time. Training in my home gym now. Spent the middle 13 years training solo. Have had a good training partner for over a year now.
I've been flip-flopping between strength and conditioning programs for the last 2 years. I had developed a scorn for bodybuilding but now i realize it's just an option and a tool for a specific goal. The thing is, deep down, I still want to be huge, but never wanted to give up my hard-earned strength or athleticism. Fortunately, BTB created, and I stumbled upon, BULLDOZER training.
I'm psyched because it seems the perfect system for improving strength, gaining size and not being so cumbersome a program that it's unsustainable. According to BTB, it's also not difficult to recover from neurologically (CNS) or orthopedically (joints). That's good once you cross the 30 year old line! Although, I fully believe my best and fittest years are ahead of me.
I've had a lot of cool experiences and like to help/share when I can. I also like to learn and appreciate feedback and constructive criticism.
Looking forward to running my version of the program and logging it here...
