I've been using this work out for a month or so. I thought it would be a good idea to write it down, to see if I can get some motivation to increase some weight. Hopefully some of you guys (and gals) can give me and idea of what I need to do different

With that in mind, here we go.

Day 1: Chest/Tri's :
225 x 6
265 x 6
315 x 6 (assited last 2)
245 x 6 (tried 285, didn't even touch it
:mad: )

Tricep Extentions-
90 x 8
100 x 6

***One arm Cable Pulldowns:
60 x 6
70x 5

***Cable Flys-
(I use one arm at a time to really try to pull across the body)
80 x 6
70 x 6

15 minute elliptical machine
5 minute treadmill
150 crunches

***some of the cable weights I don't think are accurate (they're too high) but thats what it says, and these are the machines that I use, so for consistency, thats the number I'm using

Thanks man, but I gotta long way to go..
I forgot to add the age 28, and I'm a natty...
I don't really have any personal bests tracked...
I did max 445 in college on bench- But that was in my youth.:eek:
All the insight you can give me will be much appreciated.

off day yesterday...
and it looks like it may be one again today...
quickly running out of time. I have to take my roommate to the airport...he's heading to korea to go to the world cup...needless to say he's stoked for the event.
made a bet with a buddy of mine---
for me to get to 240, before he gets to 220
good initiative to cut.
I'd love to shed 15 pounds of pure fat without losing my strength...
I'll probably post somewhere else for some good ideas.
(other than to stop:alcoholic )
