hi!
so whats your goals and diet?

Compac19

I havent touched any weights in over 3 years and that was only for a short time 6 months or so. I really havent worked out hard since I was 23 (12 years ago).


About me: 35yrs 155lbs 5'8"
My goal is to get my body and mind in good shape, increase my body weight to 165lbs and look like I did when I was 23(I dont expect to get the hair back but I would like to get the muscle back).
In an effort to help me have more productive workouts I have over the last month cut my smoking frome 15-20 smokes a day down to 5 with the intent to quit all together. I cut my drinking back from 4-6 beers per day to 6-8 per week.

Workot goals end of August:
Bench: 150x10 150x10 150x10
DB Curls: 40x10 40x10 40x10
Squats: 225x10 225x10 225x10
SLDeadlift: Much more that I do know
DB Rows 40x10 40x10 40x10
Crunches 100

I workout alone at home without a spotter, I know my squat and deadlift poundage sucks but the old knees and back took a pounding during 3 years of tree work as a young lad. I will continue to slowley increase my lower body workout weights as long as my body lets me.

Diet:
tuna steaks and canned, chicken, red meat, pasta, pinto beans, green red yellow peppers, onions, potatoes, olive oil, eggs. Not a strict diet honestly, I love to cook and eat. I just try to eat lots of foods with protien and carbs before and after workouts. I am naturally very lean and eat with little worry of gaining weight.
I have weighed between 155-165 since 7th grade. If I am able to quit smoking this may change.

Take care

15 Min nordictrack (pain in the arse)

20 min heavy bag

Is using the heavy bag bad for your joints wrist, elbow, shoulders?

I took some pics today to compare to pics I will take in August and it seems that I have the chest of a young girl(except for the hair).

Take a look at my routine and tell me how I should alter it in order to add some size and definition to my chest.

Well I got through another day having only smoked 5 cigs and only endulged in one Gin and Tonic. Drank lots of water and ate well, now I will go to sleep before I pour another drink and have another smoke.

I cant wait to workout tomorrow. It kills me having to take days off, but thats seem to be the general idea I get from this board (days off equal growth).

Take care

BB Squats:
55x5 115x5 155x6 155x6 155x6

I almost died doing that last set. I was beat after the second set and thought I had performed 3 155x6 sets last workout. Not wanting to do less than last time I pushed through the last set. My head almost blew off my shoulders. I actually had to take a nap before continuing. So I forced down a big fat ham sandwhich with lots of water then took an hour nap. Woke feeling better, surfed the WBB boards for a while then finnished my routine.

DB Bent Rows:
15'sX10 30x10 30x10 30x10 (My lower back is getting stronger allowing me to concentrate on the Rows and not my back)

BB Shrugs:
115x10 115x10 115x10 (Big improvement only because I had not tried to hard up til now)

BB Calf Raises:
115x10 115x10 115x10 (Big improvement only because I had not tried to hard up til now)

BB Dead Lift:
65x10 115x5 115x5

Over all very good day except for the NEED nap after squat experiance? I think I will take 2 days off instead of 1 before my next workout. I think maybe the old body was trying to tell me something.

I think its time to invest some money in some whey protein, so off ot the store I go.

Can anyone recomend a good home free standing Dip/Pull-up station priced between $100-$150? Anyone tried the Bollinger Power Tower?

Take care

I decided to scale back the weights, increase the reps and switch to a full body workout every other day for awhile. This change is due in part to some soreness in my knees and shoulders. I think I was uping the weight to fast initially so I will slow things down for a short time.

WOW, felt great today.

Had to push myself to start the workout. I busted arse on those squats and was sucking serious wind at the end.
After I recovered from the squats I was feeling real good. The 65lb dead lifts didnt even tweak my back or knees a bit, come to think of it neither did the squats. The dead lifts were a challenge but I felt great when I was done. I just kept getting more energy. I figured I would see how 45lb DB Bent rows would feel. I have never tried 45lb DB rows before, man they felt good, perfect form on the first set , a bit sloppy 9-10 second set.
It was strange, the more I did the better I felt. It was like some sort of natural high going on .:eek:

BB Squats:
65x5 115x5 155x10 155x10 155x8 (pretty sure I could have made 10 rep last set if I had a spotter)

BB Dead Lift:
65x10 115x10 115x10 115x10 (required alot of energy but felt great)

DB Bent Rows:

Another great workout.
I really have the feel of the squats now, kinda in the zone. The more I workout the more confident I fell with heavy weights.

I think the music I have been listening to really helps get me in the mood: AC/DC Back in Black, Van Hallen(first album), Black Sabbath Parinoid.
