View Full Version : Aaron72's Journey to a New Beginning

11-02-2009, 11:56 AM
Hey guys,

I had made a journal before but i didnt hold up to it. I found a new routine and diet plan and i plan on hitting it real hard now. I have some hard goals i want to reach but i will get them. There are so many of your guy's journals that i have read and kept track of and you pretty much did what i want to do and that motivates me even more, knowing that it is possible with enough hard work and determination. Well this is going to be my journey.
My routine:

Monday: Chest and Back

Tuesday: Off

Wednesday: Legs

Thursday: Off

Friday: Shoulders, Triceps, and Biceps

Saturday: Off

Sunday: Off

Then i will do abs on any day i feel like it.
I plan on sticking with this routine for a good while and once i stop getting results i will post a new one.
Diet: Still have to right it up
A little info about me:

I am 15 years old, about 5' 10" and weigh 205.6. I have about 2 years of lifting under my belt. Have been bodybuilding for about 3 months. I go to my local gym in Nashville illinois "Access to Fitness". I really dont take any supplements yet. <---- Any recommendations? I plan on getting a X-bodybuilder to help me train and get into shape. I am looking for a good solid diet plan that doesnt cost very much but shows amazing results.
Current Stats: 1RM

Squat: 340

Bench: 210

PC: 215

DL: Not 100% sure but over 300 last i did it

Squat: 400+

Bench: 250+

PC: 250+

DL: 400+

Little bit of number difference between current and future stats.
Personal Goals:

Six Pack

Be able to 75% jog 2 miles straight

18" arms. current: 15 3/4

And thats that. I hope you will be with me in my journey and help me stay motivated along the way.
