I looked around the site and it looks interesting. Started training a couple months ago, after a pretty long hiatus (knee injury, caused lots of my muscles to atrophy). Weight when I started 12 weeks ago was 145, weight today is 160. Pretty happy with that, since my metabolism is so high. Hopefully I'll keep gaining about a pound a week.

Could you please tell us what the abbreviations stand for? :)

07-03-2001, 05:35 AM

BBP = barbell flat bench press
RW = machine row
IDBP = incline dumbell bench press
LPD = lat pulldown
DBF = flat dumbell flyes
SQ = squatts
SCR = seated calf raises
LE = leg extensions
LC = leg curls
BBE = barbell extensions
SS = shoulder shrugs
DBC = dumbell curls
FR = front raises
HC = hammer curls
LR = lat raises

I think that's all of them. Also note that I only write down the work sets. In general I also do a warm up set before and a low-weight/high-rep burn out set after the work sets. I'm too lazy to type those in. Also the reason I use the abbreviations.

07-03-2001, 06:23 AM
Jim, I would recommend that you drop the front raises as you anterior delts get more than enough stimulation from benching

07-03-2001, 06:40 AM
thanks, I was going to move a few things around this week anyway. I'll give it a shot.

leg extensions are much different from before because they changed machines on me at the gym, so I still need to figure out where I'm at on that one. I moved the shrugs to today but didn't do them because I just did them on sunday.

one of my shoulders was a little sore so I didn't go to failure on the bench press, didn't seem to affect my inclines though

Started dips today, surprised I could do it. bench didn't go up at all, I think my shoulders are failing too soon, can't even feel my chest being worked. I guess I'll have to wait until the shoulders catch up.

Can't go to the gym for the next two weeks cause they are remodelling it.

Those jerks took 6 weeks to remodel the gym instead of 2. Now I can finally start going again.

How much do you weigh at present?

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, FAngel. I haven't been to the gym in about a month, had a sprained ankle, so I haven't been on the site until now. I'll be going back today. I weigh 162 right now.

What the heck your jumping back and forth between February 2002 and November 2001...


02-19-2002, 06:15 AM
My bad, I cut and pasted and forgot to change the date. I fixed it. There's a big gap between November and Feb. because I wasn't going to the gym very regularly, I was travelling around. Trying to get back on track now.

(different cable pull down machine, that's why the poundage is way down).

You only ever seem to post stuff on your training, but you're making good progress . Hows everything else in your life, diet ,school/work etc?

05-31-2002, 06:08 AM
I used to post more to the training forum. Maybe now that summer's here... Life's been turbulent the last few months but things have settled down now, so hopefully I can make it to the gym a lot more often from now on.

For the last few weeks I've been running and eating healthier to try and lose some fatty deposits around my midsection. Now I'm going to try putting my weight-lifting back in and also run three times a week.

No offense man but you might want to write out your workouts or cut and paste them or something. Because I can NEVER remember what any of this stuff stands for. :(:(
