Alexis_not_thecar's getting serious about lifting!

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all, so I've been following NF for over a year now, but this is my first time participating in a 6 week challenge. 


I've been lifting on and off for about a year or so, but just got back into it with a solidly structured program (Strong Lifts 5x5) about a month ago. I tend to eat mostly paleo, but the last two months I've totally gone off the rails with holidays, weddings, and general laziness. I'm currently doing my second Whole 30 as a bit of a nutritional reset, but it's mostly how I eat anyways, so that's not a huge thing for me to deal with right now. 


Anyways, here are my three goals for this challenge:


1. Gym 3x a week to follow my program, which should lead to these lifting numbers for me:


Squat - 195 lbs

Bench press - 82.5 lbs

Barbell row - 92.5 lbs

OHP - 72.5 lbs

Deadlift - 210 lbs


2. Clean paleo eating every day, but also eating enough (4 meals a day with ~6oz protein at each meal)


3. 8 hours of sleep every night


My life goal for this challenge is to read 3 books over the course of the challenge. I recently got quite a few of Foucault's works and would like to make a decent dent in them over the next 6 weeks.
