JTurner's Eat, Lift, Eat Log
I'm new to the forum and thought I would start a log and see how it goes. I have always kept a log of my training to look back over so this should be easy to keep on top of.
I have just started my 9th cycle of Wendler's 5/3/1, training 3 days a week. I have just recently in my last cycle switched the first and second wave and am starting to introduce some singles on waves 1 and 3.
Here is the assistance work I am following at the minute, copied from the Powerlifting e-book, some small changes. I do pull-ups inbetween most pressing exercises.
Push press, 5/3/1 sets/reps
Bent over(Pendlay) rows, 5 sets of 10 reps
Weighted dips, 5 sets of 10 reps
Barbell curls/rear laterals, superset these two exercises for 3–5 sets of 10–20
Deadlift, 5/3/1 sets/reps
Good morning, 5 sets of 10 reps
Abdominal wheel, 5 sets of 15-20 reps
Bench press, 5/3/1 sets/reps
Dumbbell bench press, 5 sets of 10 reps
Dumbbell rows, 5 sets of 10 reps
Triceps push-downs/face pulls, 3 sets of 15-20 reps
Squat, 5/3/1 sets/reps
Squat, 5 sets of 10 reps
Hanging leg raises, 5 sets of 10-20 reps
I have followed this for 2 cycles and feel as though it is working well for me.
My biggest lifts to date are:
These were at the end of summer and I am certain that they have all improved since then and am aiming to set some new PB's by the end of 2011.

At this point the ridiculous amount of food I decided to eat the day before caught up with me and I just had to cut it short. Haven't done that in a very long time but at least all the important work was done.
Looks like you and I have similiar strength levels. I'm interested to see how you progress on 5/3/1. Welcome to MAB!

Thought I'd log this mornings deadlifts before lectures start. Wasn't a bad day, I've put my 1RM very low in my excel file to accommodate pulling singles and to ensure form. Also I don't push for max reps on my last sets very often particularly on deadlift and bench days, I'd rather pull a second triple than let form go out the window at the minute. Time for chilli and baked potato before a mind-numbing few hours :eatdude:.
Welcome to MAB! Looking forward to see you smashing some good #s. Subbed! Training looks great btw
Thanks for the welcomes.
Cheers, just keeping it simple at the minute. I feel like its getting me where I want, time will tell.
