Hey there fellow shredders! New to this site but I have been lifting for about a year and a half now. Excited to share my experiences with you all and get some feedback!

Few tid bits about me...I'm 31 years old, I work for the Delaware State Police, I have a 6 year old daughter in the 1st grade, and I am in the process of getting my Master's degree in Business Administration. I am very busy, but not to busy to fit in a great workout....EVERY DAY. Even if that means getting up at 4:45am to do itI've been "skinny" my entire life so my goal is to "get big". I want a purse snatcher to approach me and be like "oh never mind!" haha. I have been pretty successful in my quest so far. I enjoy switching up workout's from time to time and now has come the time to venture into this 5-3-1 powerlifting workout routine. I can't wait to get started and post my progress! Hopefully post some progress pictures as well.

So here are my current stats and then my goals, aiming for the end of 2013...

Bench Press- 80 for 5 (current) 95 for 5 (goal)
Squats-95 for 5 (current) 110 for 5(goal)
Military Press 45 for 5 (current) 65 for 5 (goal)
Dead Lifts 135 for 5 (current) 150 for 5 (goal)

Current weight 132lbs (Not sure what my goal weight should be as my weight fluctuates all the time!)

Just made it through my first week...I will start putting my numbers in this log Monday

@craig definitely felt like your comment was inappropriate. How would you feel if someone said that to your daughter one day?

@Jenntastic welcome. -3X

IN.

Good luck, @Jenntastic. I could be wrong, but I think you are the first SS mom to run a 5/3/1 log. That's certifiably badass.

Love that you're running 5/3/1. Surprised nobody has asked yet, but how is your nutrition? That's going to be just as important as your training.

Jenntastic private msg quote post Address this user
@databas1c I am still learning a lot about nutrition based on my needs. I maintain the same weight, trying or not. I do know I need to focus on eating a lot more then I do. I went for about 2 weeks where I managed to put eggs with everything and eat them as a snack, I gained a few pounds but then just couldn't stand the smell! I have cut a lot of stuff out of my diet (that I didn't want to, like those macaroni and cheese fried balls from The Cheesecake Factory!)I stick with burgers (plain, no bun or anything) along with steaks and chicken. I still have pizza once in a while and a TON of water. I haven't gotten to the point where I am measuring out my foods. Right now I make sure I eat to have the energy I need to get through the workouts and I enjoy a chocolate protien shake and hot oatmeal afterwardsI'm hoping to gain some knowledge by reading the forums on this site about nutrition for my needs...once I decide on a goal weight!

The biggest piece of advice I can give you regarding nutrition is to try to get away from the mindset of exclusionary diets. If you want fried cheese balls, eat them. There's always a way to fit them in your macros from time to time. -3X
