Home PEx Lifestyle Body and Fitness

Post your current routine, diet and stats here.

I'll start.

I started 10 months ago with Starting Strength. I didn't read the book, actually. But I followed the linear progression which was the idea of the routine. After I stalled 2 times, I switched to a push/pull routine and did it for 3 months. I am now doing Madcow 5x5 with high fat/protein and low carb diet.

180lbs. 5'7
5 RMs
Squats: 280lbs
DL: 300lbs
Bench Press: 170lbs
OHPress: 100lbs

Madcow 5x5 gave me great strength gains even if I was cutting.

  • Resumed training in April of this year after several months off. Still on a 3x5 linear progression (plus some extra volume and assistance work) and have yet to stall. I've surpassed my previous SQ/DL training maxes by around 10lbs already, except for the OHP.

    BW: 140lbs 5'4" (manlet status, yo)
    5RMs:
    Squat: 235
    DL: 260 (this feels quite light)
    Bench: 140 (this feels heavy) :(
    OHP: 110
    Chins: BW+30

    Diet is nothing special, although I try to eat as much animal protein as possible and take several servings of whey on top of that. Carbs are low-moderate, probably 1 cup rice for a whole day.

    haven't tested my lifts in a month

    I'm about 5'6-5'7 ranging from 148-152

    my last tries
    squat 330
    bench 225
    deadlift 365
    pistol 32kg
    one arm press 32kg

    as of now, I'm jut eating sensibly (minimizing processed foods and sweets)

    focus right now is the RKC so I do more kettlebell lifts but still do the big 3 and olympic lifts to maintain my groove

    Low cal (I'm limiting my daily intake to 1000 cal)

    I almost always stick to suspension training and ball exercises.

    push up
    suspended lunge
    hamstring curl
    ball crunch
    ball squat
    ball hip abduction & adduction

    and then Zumba to complete my workout :)

    6 years. Been serious for the last 2 and been going for high volume because.... I just feel like doing it.

    Box Squats - 230 (3-4 inches below the knee)
    Chins/pull ups - BW 3X8
    M Press - 120

    For 3 mos I've been trying to eat as clean as possible.
    Taking in:
    About 300+ g of protein.
    Less than 200 for carbs.
    Minimum fat as possible.

    AND .. I drink zero calorie sodas at least 2 times a week for sanity.

    @blake: dont you think your numbers would do good in a local PL meet given you can go down to 140-145?

    Started again going to the gym after 2 months off...now in Gold's Glorieta (sponsored kasi ng company). Did 3x5's this morning just to get the old blood moving again.

    Squats - 135 lbs
    Bench - 135 lbs

    I know the squats could have been higher but I didn't want to strain too much on the 1st day.

    10 mins cardio before and after lifting.

    Target: To go down to 170-180 lbs by the end of the year.

    Diet: Cutting down on fast foods and soda. >_<

    I will post the actual weights I used later as they are not very impressive, hehehe.

    But here are my routines. Mixed workouts -- upper body strength and arms one day and then lower body strength and legs the next day. I warm up with cardio. But sometimes I use up the whole session just for cardio. I work out 6 days a week. The gym sometimes have free sessions of yoga, stretching or similar thingies. I join them from time to time.

    I used to be a vegan but I stopped it when I did it wrongly and I got Vit. B deficiency. Now, I have multi-vit supplement but in moderate doses, not high at all. My diet is normal and varied, with minimum of five servings a day of vegetables or fruits. I normally have a vegetable salad with vinaigrette every day. I have banana and oatmeal for breakfast.

    I used to work and party very hard and end up sleeping 5-6 hours only. For the past 3 weeks now, I sleep 7 hours minimum by sleeping early. I feel great. I never use the alarm clock anymore as I wake up naturally.

    I have long rides of my bikes one day each weekend. I have been riding for the past 3 years.

    In summary, I am trying to have regular cardio, strength and stretching exercise. I try to sleep early (11pm) and get at least 7 hours of sleep. And I consciously have veges and fruits in my diet. I also try stress management such as yoga or biking, etc when I can.

    you don't need cardio if you're playing basketball once a week, and @ your height, i think you still need to gain weight. =)
