Well,starting a journalIm a 15 yr old high school student in the uk.Started benching and curling a couple of months ago but never got anywhere really.Starting wbb routine 2 as my 1st routine.seems like a good one.you can see it on the main page in the training articles.
Will try to add a pic some time soon so you can see my progress.

My goal is to add 3 or 4" to my arms in 2 years.I want to join the royal marines or become a civil engineer.

Well,today.Got up and had no breakfast.went on my paperound.had to rush to school for my exams.i ate quite a few snacks on the way there,to boost my energy levels.Came home at break and ate a full french stick with 500g of hame,loads of lettuce and tomatoes.then drank 500ml of milk.Came home and ate more salad,then started 1st day of wbb routine 2.i hope to do this for 10 weeks.i finished the routine apart from flyes.i dropped the weight on my toe and busted it open,so i stopped.im normally use to training with low reps,between 2-4.but the routine is 9-11,so i had to drop some weight,which disappointed me abit.apart from that,it felt great.im currently eating sugar puffs,but had chips,steak and kidney pie and peas before.also have some milk before i go bed.hope to get 7 hours sleep 2nite,but i aint sleepin that well this week.talk 2 you lot tomoz!

Good luck with the journal, sounds like your diet could do with some work, are you bulking? i would suggest that you do, being 6ft2 and 150lbs.

How did the ordeal with the g/f pan out?

my advice on diet would be to run a search in the diet forums, if you cant find what you need post a question, then you will recieve lots of opinions, whereas if i just outline, you will only get a few ideas chucked in the mixer.

If you dont get any responce then i will sort you a diet out tommorow, im busy till tommorow evening so ill sort it then if need be.

Here are a few things to get you started with your diet:

1) If trying to gain weight multiply your bw*18 and that will give you a rough estimate of what your daily caloric total should be. I would shoot to gain about a pound a week, and if you are not gaining then up your daily cals gradually until you are.

2) Get at least 1 gram of protien per pound of bodyweight.

3) Try and get your carbs from complex sources such as oats and sweet potatoes, except post-workout in which you should consume simple carbs.

4) Don't skip out on the healthy fats. Some good sources are nuts, fish, natural PB, flax oil.

5) I would try and eat something at least every 2-3 hours. Each meal should contain some protien carbs and fat.

Hope this helps and good luck with the new routine and journal. Keep us posted on your progress.

Working out legs takes alot of balls. Many Many people are scared of training legs because its not an easy workout.


Sorry but Squating requires alot of mental toughness, more then anyother exercise. Perhaps Deadlifts and leg press are second to Squat. But working out your legs is very important more so if you lack them. I hated to train legs when i First begun to lift, but with time I had to love them. There is no way out you know , either you squat and get big or not.
