The only thing you are guaranteed at birth is death. You have a right to that. The rest is earned.

Obsessed is a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

Don't let anyone tell you, you can't. Keep your chin up, and your eyes on the prize. Live everyday like it's your last. Death is certain, life is not.

Find that spark inside you and make it the biggest ****ing fire around

Hello, and welcome to my log. I have been lifting weights for several years, though the first few were with little results. I had no nutrition skills and little rest, so I was setting myself up for failure. My previous log can be found here. I moved back to the main log section because I find there is more support and input here.

I started lifting in grade 9 gym class, until now in grade 12. I have been working diligently at gaining more knowledge, from various sources online and books.
-To get stronger
-Raise my Squat to 300 lbs
-Raise my Deadlift to 350 lbs
-Raise my Bench Press to 200 lbs (I have always been weak on Bench, I started with 2 10 lb dumbells)
-To have a better cardiovascular conditioning
-but above all:
-To GET STRONG. I will become a much larger, stronger and more physically capable person. I hope to one day compete in powerlifting
Weight: 169.5 lbs
