Hey everyone, I am pretty new to the forum. I love it ! I found out about it by Twitter. I only have a couple posts. I wanted to start logging my workouts and some of my nutrition. And hopefully get some feed back and opinions on what I am doing.

The basic stuff: I'm 26, 5'11'' right now I am 260lbs

I have competed twice. Both competitions have been in WABDL.

At the moment I am wanting to lose a little bit of body fat and try to get down to around 248. Mainly just for comfort reasons. And hopefully I won't have a loss in strength, or if I do hopefully not much.

I'll post my workout up later today. Today is back day.

Any opinions or critiques are more than welcome! Please feel free to try anything you see in here also! :)

Alright.....so I fell asleep yesterday, and had some errands to run and just decided I'd do my back workout today. I'll post my food log for today late tonight or tomorrow.

Right now I'm having my first meal: 2 scoops whey protein, 8oz rice milk, 1 packet of raisin, date and walnut oatmeal.

Off Day

Nutrition:

I realized yesterday that I need to slow down on my diet. I'm trying to do too much at once. Basically since my competition, which was Sep 8th of this year, I haven't eaten clean at all.

So I'm pretty sure by just cleaning up my diet and allowing myself to eat what I want as long as its clean, I'm gonna drop a little weight. If I start higher, I can always modify my plan if my progress slows down. At least I will have room to make adjustments. Plus I don't want to get burned out.

Meal 1: 8 egg whites, with 2 slices colby pepper jack cheese, 1 packet raisin, date and walnut oatmeal cooked in water

Meal 2: 3 gluten free, wheat free donuts, large handful of chips....this was more like just a snack

Meal 3: about 3-4 tablespoons of natural peanut butter and 2 slices of whole grain bread

Meal 4: 12'' flat bread sub from subway.

Sleep.

Today I'll focus on getting in enough protein, but I'm gonna make sure to keep the calories up today because today is Bench Day.

Bench Day

Warm up

Then I did dead presses today in the power rack. I had the bar to where it was sitting just about my stomach on the height. So it was probably like pressing off of a 1 board or half board

225 X 2, 255 X 2, 275 X 2, 295 X 2, 315 X 2, 335 X 1

I felt like I had some more left but I went ahead and stopped and ended on a good note.

Regular bench press with bands. Not sure of the tension. The tension was pretty tight, but don't know the lbs

135 X 10, 185 X 8, 225 X 8

light tricep push downs to warm up triceps

Dips using just body weight: 2 X 8, 10

standing barbell extensions, like skull crushers just standing up and the weight goes behind your head.

50 X 8, 65 X 8, 70 X 8,

behind the head dumbbell extensions with both hands

50 X 8, 65 X 8, 80 X 5

1 arm behind the head dumbbell extensions

30 X 8, 35 X 5

Overall I was pretty pleased with the day. Dead presses are something I've been wanting to try. They are really hard!
