Hell. Why not? Everyone else is doing journals and so I figured I'd start one. :cool: I'm completely new to lifting, and I don't mind if you laugh your a$$ off at my recordings... :rolleyes: Just keep in mind: I'm not a Body Builder that started a journal, I'm a kid who started Body Building with this very journal! :D

Anyway my journal is very well laid out so I'm sure you'll be able to follow it easily. I got the "lbs x reps (!)" idea from BELIAL, in order to record new records. (You'll see alot of new records, the first couple of weeks, since I'm just starting)

What else? Oh right. I'll post my lifting regime as it breaks down over the week:

Day 1: Chest, Biceps
Day 2: Rest
Day 3: Legs, Shoulders
Day 4: Rest
Day 5: Back, Triceps
Day 6: Rest
Day 7: Rest

I'm not posting specific excercises here, as you'll see them in my journal.

One final note: I DON'T do squats, and I DON'T do deadlifts. tuttut I'm still growing and I am an avid soccer player (I'm not taking any chances on my growth or my knees.) I know some of you... I mean all of you will disagree, but I decided I can still make progress without squats and deads.

You probably want to know some stats about me.

I'm 17 years old (male if you havn't guessed) and I weigh as of today 115 lbs! :eek: Man, will that change fast :D And I'm just starting lifting today, so I'm more worried about FORM than weight. FORM! FORM! FORM!

Alright I guess thats it! I hope you enjoy my journal that I WILL BE KEEPING ALL SUMMER, I just might need motivational :help: from you guys :)

That was my notation originally, assface. He borrowed it from me. So nyah. :p

That said, glad to see you're starting a journal! These things really, really help.

Had an excellent day, made progress in ALL LIFTS!!
Well, that’s mainly because I just started lifting today.
Regardless, this journal is off to a great start! :thumbup:

A little sore even now (after lifting this morning),
I’m sure, I will really feel sore tomorrow.

I was tired for most of the morning… I’m going to aim

WORKOUT: (CHEST & BICEPS)
----------------------------------------------------------------

Bench Press: 45 x 8, 65 x 8 (!), 65 x 8

First time ever doing this exercise, and so of course I set
my record (65 x 8), it’s not much but it will be going up.
I started with just the bar so I could learn the form, and
then I added the weight.

Incline Bench Press: 65 x 12 (!), 65 x 12

Again first time with this exercise and so I set my record of
(65 x 12) the same amount of weight I benched, but this was
in a machine and so it was easier to control (plus I was at
an incline and that makes it easier), thus, I did three
more reps.

DB Flyes: 12 x 12, 12 x 12 (!)

Once again, it was the first time doing flyes. I felt that I could
Have done a lot more weight, but I wanted to make sure my
form was perfect… and so I set (12 x 12) Wow. I never thought
the eight would equal the reps. Anyway I have excellent form
and I will do better next week!

Bar Curls: 25 x 12, 25 x 12 (!)

I hadn’t done this exercise before either. I did two sets at
(25 x 12) and set a new record. I could have done more
but I wanted to keep perfect form through out.


DB Curls: 15 x 8 (!), 12 x 8, 10 x 8

I started out doing 8 reps at 15 lbs to failure, and then took
away weight each time… by the time I was doing 10 lbs it
felt harder than the 15! Anyway I set a record at (15 x 8)

Much as I like to see people really EATING, I think 5,400kcal is a bit much considering you only weigh 115lbs. I weigh 210 and 5,000kcal is even a bit high of an intake for me--though I am, by nature, quite endomorphic. I'd say 20xbodyweight +500kcal is a better starting point. So, in your case that's 2800kcal. Just to make it an even number, bump it up to 3,000kcal. I'd at least see how you do at this level for a couple of weeks. Otherwise, I really think you're gonna end up putting on a disproportionate amount of fat--though if you're really a hardgainer and since you're just starting out you might do okay. I'd just hate to see you turn yourself into a fat-ass unnecessarily.

Ya but he also is active as well. If he's playing soccer I'm assuming there is practices as well as the game.

Good job!!!!!

I don't know if i'll even gain weight w/ over 5,000 calories...

I must have a huge metabolism, I've been trying over 5,000 calories all this week and I still havn't gained a pound of fat. I bet my body fat percent is under 10 at least... But I have been putting on mass, and I am looking more muscular so hopefully this is the perfect diet to gain weight in terms of solid mass but not add any fat. :D
