  • Dear Diary ...

    Hello. I was recommended to Barbell Medicine and to log my training here by a friend. I have been stalking the forum for some time and decided to join the fun and make an account and log my lifts

    Im an underweight 18 year old female with only about 6 months of resistance training history. Most of which was unstructured and not all barbells. In high school I did long distance running and was pretty good at it but I want to take a shot at weight lifting since I'm not doing any track and field for college. Im guilty of thinking my boobs will shrink if I touch weights but im already so tiny theres not much to lose anyways haha I will try some BBM programming! This might sort of become a diary at times so I hope you don't mind reading

    Some of you make such fancy logs but im too lazy for that ...

    Ill put some stats here to start so i can look back and remember and see if theres changes..
    18yo, 158cm / 5'2, 52ish kg / 115lbs, 29" waist ...I think...the number can change alot depending where I measure, its 29 around hip bone but 26-27 at the narrowest part. , about 21% body fat.

    (everything will be in freedom units)

      didnt take long for me to lose focus, huh? i have been training this whole time just not logging anything .. i got thru the first 4 weeks of the Beginner Prescription and now repeating week 4 until I dont make progress or get bored, whichever comes first ha ha.

      i have been enjoying the program and barbell training so far. I feel alot more comfortable with deadlifts and squats and its not as intimidating now. its all just lifting weights, right?
