Fire 36's quest to succeed
Ok well been a member awhile, and just now decided to do the log. My goal is to get bigger, faster, stronger in the sporting events I compete in. And to show others a fit firefighter is the way to be.

Will add to log later have a call now.

Now to finish this up.
OK I'm back into the gym after a short break due to an extremely busy schedule.
Right now I'm at 160 lbs and 16% BF. Not sure of my max lifts because of not having a spotter.
I'm wanting to really hit this hard in preparation for the upcoming Firefighter Combat Challenge Season, and softball. I want to really get conditioned for athletics at this time maybe moving to power lifting later.

My base work out is the Stronglifts 5x5 with a few variations, and yesterdays workout was one of my better ones I've had. Felt really good after wards and getting back into a decent diet as well. Can't wait to see the progression and hope the log helps me stay motivated and on track.

Ok will be my first update. Yesterday was a conditioning day went pretty good, did some "burpee's" with running in place between them. Was a killer on my legs after mondays squats. But felt good, was overall pleased with how my tuesday went.

Today I'm on duty at the station and did my "B" workout, it was an ok workout but had a hard time really getting into it today. Not sure if it was the fact I was worrying about getting a call in the middle or what.

Squats today were good, did a 5x5 set going 155,165,165,165,170 and that last set was murder. But I got it done. I LOVE ME SOME SQUATS.

My OHP was a bit rough as I had to deload due to poor form, and one set on Deadlift which I was pleased with then finished up with some pull ups and bridges for my abs.

Really hope my go on Friday is better.

Always good to read that. I don't see too many success stories of guys that refuse to squat.

Keep hitting it hard!

Thanks for the encouragement, I'm the only guy I work with that is really into squats. I keep telling them to stop being a p**** and get in that rack

Squats... they're like jumping into a cold pool, at first your anxious of the entire ordeal, but then you finally do it and you sink to the bottom and freeze- oh wait, nvm.

Ok I have a question for you guys, on my max outs? How do I find my max when i primarily am in the gym at a time with no other lifters in the "iron" room?
And I do not have workout partner
