As a result of bodybuilding, I've grown not only physically, but intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally. So whether you helped me directly or indirectly, or whether you know it or not, thank you.

Anyway, I think it's about time to start a journal, it seems that successful people all seem to keep their life extremely organized, including keeping a journal. I'm gonna try and keep a personal statistical journal of not only bbing but many other things in my life, all to achieve success in everything I decide to do in life.

The stats:
Age: 19
Height: 5'9
Weight: 165 and currently bulking
Bench: 195 PR
Deadlift: Haven't done a pr, but I'm lifting 295 right now till I can get 3 sets of 8 in
Squat: Again, haven't done a pr, but I'm pyramiding. 1 warm up set, 1 set 225, 1 set 235, 1 set 245 3x8

I'm weighting my bw exercises, 10 on pullups, 20 on chins, and 20 on dips.

Bulking at the moment, so I'm eating everything I can find...I'm thinking of bulking till the new year.

Wow man, too bad your gym doesn't have DBs greater than 80lbs - most places go up to at least 110lbs.

Good luck with staying on track to meet your goals.
