Default Off Road Journal

I thought I'd keep a journal here since I'm on here several times a day. Besides, I could always use more support and motivation.

Breif bio;
I am turning 48 years old this month, so I'm a geezer. I got into lifting weights years ago after a very severe back injury that gained me a 65% disability rating and had me out of work for over three years. I believe in basic and abreviated training programs. After a couple of long breaks from lifting due to life issues (kids, school, etc.) where I just did a bare minimum and just tried to maintain, I have been back to lifting seriously for a few years now. I started back with a basic 20 rep squat routine, then moved on to a Hardgainer split similar to John Chrity's stuff. After reaching my old PRs I switched to Wendler's 5/3/1 to just focus on slow and steady progression on a few big lifts. I am now running my first go-round of Juggernaut and absolutely loving it. This journal will start on the second month of Juggernaut which is the 8's wave.

Subscribed. I have been doing a lot of reading on Juggernaut lately and have been playing around with some Doug Young style auto-progression for fun.

Real impressive work on squats and bench. I love the simplicity of your training style, and the brutality of that all out set at the end.

Thanks BtB, I am loving the Juggernaut system. I especially love the variation in volume and intensity. Going from light weights and high volume to heavy weights and low volume over a three week period is so much fun and keeps things entertaining. I also like the way you can increase the weight monthly depending on how you performed during the past month.

By the way, chest and traps look thick as a brick.

Thanks Faz. It was great way to spend a birthday; up in the mountains, hanging out with a buddy, and catching (and releasing) tons of fish.
