Well, Iíve finally decided to start a journal. After the rants of several WBB members, I am now going to take leg training more seriously. Today is my leg day and Iíll be doing dumbbell squats, curls, raises and calf raises.

Current weight Ė 143 pounds.

Weight will be my main indicator of progress as well as the mirror!
Hereís hoping that leg training will boost my growth like everyone says it willÖ

:( I haven't worked out in weeks, and quite frankly i feel guilty.
Its easy enough to blame it on university work, but its mostly due to lazyness and lack of motivation.
The summer vacation is a week away though. I will have all the time i need to get started again. This time i'm gonna go for it...

It can be pretty easy to lose motivation sometimes but you just gotta say f*ck me and f*ck all the f*ckin f*ckers and go. Except maybe in a more meaningful way. ;)

Good luck on the journal and your upcoming training! Good idea to work legs btw! :thumbup:

i believe it was Ronnie Coleman who said "everyone wants to be big, but no one wants to lift no big @$$ weights" ;)

Yes, why? I think i have lost a pound or so because i havent been lifting. I'm actually 6'1". For some reason i thought i was taller.

I got back to lifting last Friday.

Here is my current routine...

Monday

Front neck

Wednesday

Leg curl
Leg raise
Squat
Calf raise

Friday

Rows
Lat pulldowns
Bicep pulldowns
Bicep curls
Shrugs

I was thinking of putting deadlifts first on a Friday

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
Today is Wednesday, so i'll be training legs for the first time in months

i think that would be a good idea. deadlifts are the first thing i do on a back-day, and i feel that they deserve all the intensity and energy i have to kick-off the workout ;)

I'd like to thank all the guys who convinced me to continue training my legs.
The squat is now my favourite excercise. I just love that not being able to stand up feeling. It really does take 110% and the feeling of achievement for me is far greater than when i bench or do curls.

A lot has happened in the last year or so. My weight has yo-yoed quite a bit.
When i went veggie a few years ago i went from 133 pounds to 126 pounds.
Most of what i lost was bodyfat, much of it from around my legs.

My last bout of lifting took me to over 140 pounds. Over the last year i have been lifting on and off. This summer i took a 6 week field trip with a substantial amount of hiking and i lost 7 pounds or so. Again, most of it was bodyfat.

So long story short, i'm now 133 pounds again but with less body fat.

My new routine is 3 days a week. Push, legs and pull.

Monday

Bench
French press
Dumbell shoulder press
Lateral raises
Bent over lateral raises

Wednesday

Squat
Crunch
Hanging leg raise

Saturday

Seated row
lat pulldowns
Bicep curl
Shrugs

For the compound exercises like bench, row and squat, i do 3 sets of 10 reps and then max out on the fourth set. For smaller muscles like biceps, triceps and shoulders, i do 2 sets of 10 and max out on the third.

My goal is to get to 154 pounds (11 stone) in the long run.

I'm a lot more focused now and i have more free time on my hands...
