Heyy i'm going to start a journal here. I posted my routine in the general section, should I post it here too?
Shoulders: 50 in. (can't remember from the last time I got measured)
Waist: 32 in.
I've been training seriously for about 3 months now.
Here are my current weights and goals:
flat BB press: 205 6x, 225 3x (238) [225 6x]
incline BB press: 175 5x [185 6x]
decline BB press: 205 6x [225 6x]
squat 185 6x [225 6x] im still learning how to squat.
hammer leg press 360 6x [450 6x]
straight leg dead: 225 6x [245 6x]
deadlift: 265 6x [275 6x] * i am going up 20 on the dead each time
biceps & triceps... I do them more for killing the muscles, not for the weight lifted, but I am curling 90 on the ez-bar and 45 in each hand, and 90 on the scull crushers.

breakfast - eggs
lunch - missed (!)
snack - egg noodles & chicken
dinner - chicken
(lift & cardio)
after lift - egg noodles & chicken
got 135 lbs military press and 3 solid sets of 70 lb. ea. shoulder press, not bad.
ran 2-3 miles after workout. I am trying to drop some fat in the next week or so. I think I'd look pretty freakish with about half the bf I have on me right now.

I have begun cutting today. I am now on a 2000 kcal/day roughly 15%/45%/45% fat/protein/carb diet.
I did not implement the diet yet today fully as I don't have everything I need and I am out of protein.
-- morning cardio --
dinner: tuna + bread
-- evening cardio --
haven't eaten yet. trying to burn off that %bf.
today was a lifting rest day, will lift tommorow.

After one day of cutting I looked in the mirror this morning and the difference is striking. I look a bit smaller, and I have a 6 pack (i had 8 last year just because I worked so hard -- landscaping) starting to show better. I have an ultra-fast metabolism so changes happen fast on me.
Anyway, if progress keeps up like this I think I will stop this cutting in two weeks or so. I want to have an ultra-cut basis to gain mass on. I have never dieted before. So when I start to bulk again, I will do it with a good diet, and so the results should be a lot better.
Thanks for the support rookiebldr.
Off for my morning run now.

wow..i have a 6 pack now? how does it happen so fast? in 2 days?
i went to gym and was able to keep all my weights, although i was only able to get 2 reps at 225 on the bench, that was my only drop, but considering how much I'm eating (2100 cals), this is still pretty good..
breakfast: 2 eggs, milk, bannana, .5 whey
lunch: tuna w/ crackers, .5 whey
after lunch: .5 whey, orange juice
-- lift --
postworkout: 1.5 whey, grape juice, two bannanas
dinner: tuna w/ bread, 1/2 whey
1/2 whey soon

Third day of cutting.. Instead of doing cardio in the morning I went to work to move boulders around. Much more strenuous.
breakfast: whey, 2 eggs, bannana
-- landscaping --
lunch: whey, tuna, crackers
after lunch: whey, orange juice
dinner: whey, tuna, bread
-- lifted -- (straight-leg deadlifted 295 lbs.)
post workout: 1 1/2 whey, 2 bannanas, grape juice
-- evening cardio 4 miles --
hour later: 1/2 whey
I get lean really fast if I diet. I think I have a pretty fast natural metabolism. It looks like you are the same. One of those "hardgainer" things I suppose.

Yeah, I think I am going to cut out the morning cardio. I am just getting too lean too fast. -- Aaron

This is the way I looked last year. I didn't do any cardio or dieting. I just worked and lifted. I didn't even know how to lift, I went and lifted 2-3 hours everday. So i look pretty funny, but I kinda like the abs. I was 16.
07-09-2002, 10:31 PM
breakfast - same
lunch - same
after lunch - same
dinner - lean beef with vegetables and five brothers sauce.. good substitute

Today, worked, ate a bit more, I was getting too lean.
Felt sick, couldn't run in the evening.
Good lift though.
07-10-2002, 10:52 PM
I was getting too lean
I hate that. Makes you pig out, don't it?
07-12-2002, 10:24 PM
I got most of my abs back now..
Stuck with the diet with the addition of raisin bran and a normal dinner (chicken, etc.).
I still run twice a day sometimes, but focus on the evening run.
Last night I ran 3 miles at something like 5 mi/mile pace.. I'm starting to love to run. eep.
Yesterday: Good, good workout, run
Today: Good, rest day but did obliques, i have to go to the gym just to go, run
07-14-2002, 11:07 PM

and then, an hour later, i ran 6 miles.
ah.. it feels good

I haven't been to the gym in two or three years.
Just remembered that I used to be a member of this forum. Surprised my login still works. The post above was in 2002.
I keep telling myself I'll get back, but everytime I get close to doing it I lose motivation.

You got to find it. It is all about whats inside you..Is it there? Or is it gone?
