Well I guess I might as well start this little ol journal back up again... think my old one got lost since I did start it last January hehe and didn't get to post on it since I left for the Army and lost contact to the internet world not to mention was not able to lift weights for quite awhile. So many new people on the board my goodness... also it amazed me to see how much Belial has progressed from reading his journal so I hope to make my way up there as well!

A little bit about me...
about 5"10 I made my way to 192 lpbs now from 175 4 and a half months ago... standing at around 14-16% bodyfat now ouch! gonna start my cutting diet when I hit 200 so I'd guess October it'll be time to cut.

Based on 6rep maxes I suppose

Chest
Flat DB Press 75's
Incline DB press 60's
Legs
Squat 245
Deadlift 255
Back
DB Rows 70's
Seated Row 110
pull ups 3x7
Shoulders
DB Press 55
Lateral Raises 20's
Trapz
Db's 115's
BB Not tested

tomorrow we do Chest/Shoulders/Tri's
So let the journal begin!

oh yes consuming about 3000 calories a day and get a good 8-10 hours of sleep a night

Good luck on this journal and your progress to 200 lbs. Sounds like it has been a very slow increase over the 4 months so maybe your bf hasn't increased very much.
