I finally after three weeks of being in the gym have gotten around to organizing myself. I am starting this journal to keep track of my workouts as well as getting feedback. Please, be patient as I am new to weightlifting. Any assistance and advice is greatly appreciated.

So today was Day 5 of my routine, and it was my first day back after straining my back last week. It felt great to get back in the gym but many of my lifts suffered.
