Been slacking for some time now. I think that by keeping a journal, this may help the process. Tomorrow I begin training day 1, and will record my lifts and weight so I can keep good records.
This is Buffs journal, lets hope it roars like the last one.

Oh yeah, things are great.. Firefighting, going to school, and just relaxing.. I really need to get back into the gym though. Today I had an epiphany. Things need to get done, and they will.
How you been bro?

Oh my god dude! I haven't worked legs in close to 2 years and I decided that since it's been so long legs would be my first workout posted in this journal...
First things first I should post my weight, height and so on.

Weight:170, on the ball.
Height:5'10"
As for bf%.. Dude I really don't care what this is, it's of little concern at this point seeing as though my abs just rip right through my skin :)

Goals: I plan on gaining 20lbs of muscle in 3 months. Yesterday this goal sounded totally easy, after doing legs this evening I fear that it will be painful, but well worth it. The reason for 20lbs, is because that is where I was sitting at roughly 2 years ago, therefore I would like to achieve that first before I shoot for anything else.
History: I've competed in 2 bodybuilding competions and won both... I lifted for 2years before I did those, so I think the reason I gave up lifting like a madman after those shows was because I felt like there wasn't much more to achieve after that. WRONG!! Buff. I'm doing this for for the love of it now. I know I enjoy it and really like to see my muscles in the mirror.

Ok, tonights lifts.. they are very low, but man I am in a state of soreness already!! Lets hope that the good old muscle memory is really a thing and not just some mumbo jumbo!

Squats 135x20 135x15 155x10 165x10
SLDL 115x15 115x10 135x12

Not a whole lot but I nearly lost my cookies, it'll definitely progress.

BOOM SHAKALAKA!

Tonight was legs night and brothers I can't walk! Last week I was getting back into the swing of things, this week I wanted to hone in on my true lifts. See when, you're starting all over again, especially on legs, lifting low weights is incredibly tough to do. But my legs have been shocked and are back on the road to mastadon status huge!

Squat:185x12(My goal was 15 but, I got to true faliure and could not move after 12 even though it felt very light),
205x10, 225x7

SLDL:135x15, 185x10, 185x5

Calve Hammer Press: 270x20, 320x17, 320x16 (I feel like I need to lower my reps on these and up the weight)

Few new goals I wish to accomplish in the months to come. When I gave up on legs 2 years ago, I was squating 350, and that is my ultimate goal for leg power in 5 leg sessions from now. 350x5 is what I'm shooting for. I said before I don't care how much I lift, but I forgot how good it felt to squat, like this evening. Btw I'm msuper motivated seeing bros that are huge in my gym. I look like a little girl in comparison to them, so now I'm pumped to get bigger then them!

Dude a 225 squat after such a long layoff is awesome! Since we're about the same weight and stuff, and I'm dedicated again, we can compete against each other on the way to 200 :cool:

Buff

Werd up E.. The competition is on.

Buff
02-16-2003, 01:36 PM
This is for the 14th.

Chest day. I went with my girlfriend so I had a spot, which made this a great workout.

BB Bench: 185x10, 185x8, 195x6
Incline DB:60x12, 65x10, 65x10
Dips:15, 13, 17

That was it. I may be off by a rep or so on some of these because I did not have my journal with me to write the lifts down in.

Back day today...

Chins: 12, 6
BB Row:135x20, 175x10, 185x9
Partial Deads:185x15, 225x10, 225x8
seated cable rows:120x22, 140x10

I've gained some weight but I don't think it's how much the scale said. 179lbs!?!?! I'm thinking that was a scalular malfunction there! More like 174 or something..

SLDL: 135x12, 170x10
Claves: 270x20, 360x17, 410x16

These lifts are from last night. Man I'm so pissed about thoselifts. I think the effects of not lifting for so long are really starting to catch up with me. The reason I say this is because I hoping for 275 squat tonight. I could barely move the 245. 225 was prety friggin heavy last night. It may have been that I was working out at 4 and I usually workout at 8pm. Anyhow last night was the first time I have ever done Hacks, and man did I love the burn those things produced in my quads. Throwing in the leg curls made a big difference too, I love the burn the 2 additions give me! I'm just going to keep pounding tons of food and maybe next week I'll squat 275x5.
Oh and I weighed myself on a different scale in my gym and it says 175, so I'm sticking with 175. 15 pounds until my 1st goal has been reached. Adios.

Buff

Well bro's I love to lift. Tonight was chest night.

Here's the flava:
BB Bench: 185x8, 190x8, 205x4.. man I feel like a pussy when I do bench presses lol
Incline DB: 60x9, 65x6, 65x5
Dips: 13, 20, 10

Well I have no idea on how to find gear, so I'm going to take this prohormone supp call ONE Plus by Avant, labs. A couple of the guys on this site have said it's got the stuff that will get you going, and it's legit so I'm going to try it out, plus it's only like $50 so that's nothing. Worth a try anyhow, cus I can't find gear, and I want to get a nice little boost to help bulk up bit bit faster.

205's not too shabby man. You'll get right back up there in no time.

Geez bro' those are awesome weights for such a long lay off! I been out of it a little over a year and I can relate what your going through. I hate the initial soreness! My bench was never that great, I was more of a curl jockey when I started out.

Good luck!

Buff
02-26-2003, 01:00 AM
Thanks Kenn

Tonight was straight hellacious. I didn't do back or shoulders on their regularly scheduled days, so I may try to do both tomorrow. Anyhow tonight was legs night, and OMFG!! Man I remember felling like total crap a few times when preping for a show, after doing legs of course but this was really bad. I had a shake 45 minutes before I went to the gym and I must not have been fully digested because man o man I felt like total crap the whole time!

Squats: 225x10, 245x8... that was all I could do for these
Hacks: 140x6, 140x8... IMO this is one of the hardest lifts ever for legs
Leg Curls: 110x8, 110x5... man I feel the barf really creeping at this point.

SLDL: did not happen because some bitch wore perfume to the gym bringing barf into my mouth so I left and reswallowed my shake!! :)

Geez bro', what made you grab a shake before the devil's excercise? Your lucky you didnt blow chuncks mid rep! LOL

Buff
03-02-2003, 03:06 PM
man I've been sick as hell for the past few days, and lost most of what I've packed on in the last month. Oh well, I may be able to hit the gym as early as tomorrow.. we'll see

Alke
03-04-2003, 02:40 PM
Gettin' sick sucks! specially so soon after you decide to get back into liftin'. Hope your feelin better soon.....I had a cold for a week last month, killer f*ckin' headache too, nothin seemed to help, just had to ride it out. I always seem to get one monster of a headache every year

MAN alive, my ass was destroyed in the gym today. whoooohooo the nasty feeling of doing an overload on leg day.. I'm finally coming down.

Squat: 135x15, 225x10, 245x5, 205x10
Hacks: 90x12, 110x10 (these are just the weights on the hack machine that I put on. I'm not sure how much that f'er weighs alone)
Leg curls: 110x12, 110x5
Calve Raise: well at this point I really needed to evacuate. I mean I could go chill in the mens locker room but that gross as hell smell that is usually acustom to mens locker rooms would have made not only throw up, but really THROW UP! So I drove back to the pad, and omg it was hell. Pursed lip breathing the whole drive!

Holy christ, I weighed myself tonight and I'm 185... at this pace I'll be 195 by may 3rd, which is my date to meet my 190 goal. I'm pumped because tonight I felt real good while doing legs. I still think I look small, but have been told otherwise. On the 20th I did back and ma it was a good workout. 23 was chest day, which was good but it could have been better but the equipment we have in the gym at work is just lame, and the dumbbells only go to 50! wtf.

Tonight Legs

Squat: 135x13, 225x10, 235x8, 275x5, 235x10 I DID 275!! WOOT!

SLDL: 135x15, 155x10, 175x10 these felt great!

then I did some of those hip adductor and abductor machine exercises, and was out.... PEACE OUT

Last night was delt night, and it was awesome. Not because I tore it up with huge weights but because I went to a new gym that is sweet, and there I a fine as hell chick there! Sucks that I was lifting with my girlfriend when I was there!

Laterals:30x14, 30x11
