    Newb

    Illinois here. Just trying to better myself as I go along my body transformation journey.

    Current stats

    5'10-5'11
    189lbs
    46 inch chest
    15.25 haha arms
    Calves 15.5
    Waist 34
    Haven't measured my quads.

    Currently training to achieve a 300lb bench and 400lb deadlift. I had a hernia surgery about 4 years ago. So been taking it slower with the deadlifts.

    225 bench 2 weeks ago. 1 rep max. Will be doing another 1 rep session on Tuesday. Assuming I'll be around 240. Current deadlift p.r. is 250. However I still had quite a bit in the tank. Just going slower.

    Food

    Around 3400 calories a day. Took me awhile to work up to this. A lot of eggs, rice, peanut butter, and pasta. I want to achieve my goals while staying at or under 200lb body weight. And natural. No steroids or test or gh.


    Gym 4 times a week. 5 if I do a cardio session.

    Thank you for having me.

    Welcome to the group J Dawg!

    Why are you testing your bench 1rm only 2 weeks after a 1rm test? Don't get caught up in constantly testing your maxes, each time you do you lose a training session. Testing isn't training.

    Nice opener. I think you're going to do well here. How old are you?

    Response to the 1 rep max comment. I do it fairly frequently. Cuz seeing the higher number motivates me. Thanks for the welcome guys.

    Welcome aboard! I have had a few hernia surgeries myself. Aside from a little burning in the area if I really over due it, I’ve held together. If they did the mesh repair it’s usually pretty solid. Good luck!

    Sometimes in life you have to stop and think, Is it worth the jail time?

    I need advice. I cant for the ****ing life of me break 193lb body weight.
    I'll hit 193 for a cpl days then check it three days later and 187. Seriously?

    I eat like a ****ing 300 lb goliath yet here I stay.
    Do I need more fats? My job causes me to expend quite a bit. So along with working out maybe I need to up my cals even more. I just hate pooping so much!!!!
