My goal to reach 185 pounds officially starts today. I took sometime to learn what I did wrong the first time I tried to reach my goal. Now I think I am ready. I will start my daily calorie intake at 3000 calories a day for 4 weeks. During this time I will watch my body fat percentage closely. Then increase my daily calorie intake to 4000 calories a day.

I worked really hard today at work but I decided to lift anyway. I focused on chest, legs and mid-section, since my abs got enough from work alone I skipped my ab routine.

SAT- squats 5x5 = 225lbs, 245lbs, 245lbs, 255lbs, 255lbs

bench 5x5 = 160lbs, 165lbs, 165lbs, 170lbs, 175lbs

side-lifts 2x10 = 70lbs

skull crushers 2x10 = 25 each hand.

Bench Burnout = 135lbs for 13 reps


I went lite on bench because my traps were wore out from work today.

good luck on 185, why do you make such small jumps on your bench? any particular reason?

I am a "weak" bench presser and improve slow in pressing.

i mean like, why did you go from...

160 to 165 to 170 etc...

you should be able to do more weight if you did something like

115>135>155>175>195

edit: im not suggesting anything, do you have any reason for doing it that way?

Oh.... I'm doing this way for no reason at all. I use to do the same weight for the whole set. example 170 5x5 but I just wanted to try something random to "stock" my muscles. But I don't know if its working at all.

My plan is this.. 160 to 165 to 170 to 175.. then next week I will drop the 160 and start at 165 and end at 180 and continue this until It fail..
