    About me?:

    Hi my first name is Joe. I am 16 years old and I am a junior in high school. I live in New Jersey, USA. I weigh 135 lbs and I believe I am 5'9 (or a little higher, not sure). I played wrestling for 3 years, not counting my sophomore year(last year) where I couldn't wrestle due to injury. The injury was 2 broken bones between my elbow and wrist.

    EDIT: I just took a hydration test today. I totaled in at 7 percent body fat and I am going to wrestle the weight class 140. At the time of the hydration test when I forced myself to drink a lot of water I was 139.4 pounds. And I am 5'10 feet tall.

    I am planning to go into my 4th year of wrestling in high school. I am planning to be the best that I could be and enter states competition and do good. I am well aware that it will take heaps of effort and motivation. And I've got a long way to go. So I need all the motivation and advice I can get.


    • Bench 200
    • Squat 200
    • Do 5 pull-ups without assist - Do 10 pull-ups without assist ... etc
    • Do 5 Chins with 22 pound assist - 10 reps after. Then without assist
    • 10 dips - 15 dips - 20 dips ... etc (good form)
    • Gain weight while not gaining more fat but losing, get to 150 1bs
    • 40 push-ups - 50 - 60 ... etc
    • 40 sit-ups - 50 - 60 ... etc
    • 30 squat jumps - 40 - 50 ... etc

    Jog 20 minutes straight at speed of "6.0"- 30 minutes- 40 minutes- ...etc.
    Sprint 2 mins 30 secs at speed of "10.5-11" - 3 mins - 3 mins 30 secs ...etc


    I will use the 5X5 plan. I will workout somewhere between 3-4 days a week to the best of my ability. I will see how this goes because I am a student in high school and wrestling practice is starting oct-28. Also I work out at a gym.

    Editted Plan:

    I will do body workouts every day as I have realized the gym isn't enough. I will also take jogs around the park as much as possible given the chance and time.

    Current Stats:

    • Squats - 115 pounds
    • Bench Press -115 pounds
    • Pull-ups Max (no assist) - 4 =/
    • Dips Max -7
    • Knee Raises max -20

    I will increase 5 pounds every week.

    My Inspiration

    " People tell us we can't do something because they use their senses to determine limits. I use my mind to determine nothing is impossible."

    " There is NO such thing as failure, just deferred success. "

    "Never understimate the huge difference small changes can make."

    "Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking."

    "Your greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall."

    "Every artist was first an amateur."

    • Squats - 5X5 115 pounds
    • Bench Press - 5X5 115 pounds
    • Pull Ups (assists 22 pounds =( ) - 5XF - 5,6,5,7,5
    • Dips - 5XF - 5,5,7,6
    • Knee Raises -5XF - 20,15,17,15,13
    • 1 minute jog, 1 minute and a half sprint (maybe 2 don't remember)
    • 40 blocks walked (to gym and back)

    The squats were kind of hard. I think I should do much better. At this point, the pull ups are giving me a real struggle. I'm not good at them. And with out any assist I can't complete one set of 5 and after that my arms would be extremely tired. The dips were also hard, I struggled a lot with them. They hurt my shoulder and chest a lot. Which I know is a good thing because it means that my muscles are getting stronger.

    I don't feel like this is a good day, I am dissapointed in how much my strength got weaker and cardio since I didn't play wrestling last year (due to injury).

    Also I tried chin-ups today. I felt extremely uncomfortable and had a lot of trouble doing them. I also forgot about the leg-press today.
