View Full Version : Robert Jacobs' Beginning

So, today I have turned 18 years old. I have been lifting since I was 12 on and off, although never particularly seriously until I graduated high school about 4 months ago. Since that time, I have been lifting regularly until about a month ago when I started college and work. Starting Monday I plan to restart lifting hard and rededicate myself to it. I've been an athlete all my life so my training is going towards increased strength and explosiveness, not just size or being cut up. My senior year of high school I hurt my rotator cuff, killing my chances of a college scholarship for baseball, but I haven't thrown since I graduated and I feel like I should start throwing again, so I will also be logging that. Adios.

Lifted this evening before school. 1 Scoop MGN Premium Blend. Also Kre-Alkalyn, CLA, and ON Perfor-Maxx. I should have been taking the CLA all day and the vitamins in the morning but I zoned out so oh well. Right now my focus is on taking a longer rest between sets, at least a minute and a half, because in the past I had a tendency to go with only 30 to 45 seconds rest. Also, I wanted to do a better warm up.

Bench Press: 135x5, 185x3, 205x10,7,6, 135x12
Incline Press: 115x6, 125x10,10, 135x9
Flys: 35'sx10,10,8
Deep Dumbbell Press: 60'sx10,10,6
(Assuming short bar is 25 lbs.)
Front Raises: 55x10,9 45x10
Lateral Raises: 10'sx10, 35x8, 25x6
Arm Circles: 5'sx10,10,10
Post-Delt Flys: 135x10,10
Triceps Pressdowns: 60x10,10, 40x15

Forgot to do Upright Rows. Skipped Military Press because my triceps are really my weak point right now. Need to add more lifts, but this is ok for a first day back. 1 Scoop MGN Premium Blend and Kre-Alkalyn after.

Went to work fully intending to lift afterwards. Came from work with a fever and a feeling that I might die. I think it was from playing racquetball before. I haven't done it in a while so I was pretty inflammed. Took today off to make sure it wasn't the flu (also very very sore). Plan to get back tomorrow. I'm becoming very frustrated by being held back right when I want to go again.
