good luck good luck.. but...
this chest/back day .. its nuts well I think so at least.. i guess it depends on your goals and if you can be pushed to change your routine.. so what are your goals.. if its mass id do chest/tris and back/bis and ur workout that first day wouldnt be 2 hours.
btw my sis graduated from umass amherst she still lives in amherst.. me im at umass lowell but live in westsideminster.

John0101
02-02-2003, 08:38 PM
truthly, cuz in college and I have to walk everwhere, like 10min walk to classes and I don't want my legs to be hurting. I'm just lazy like that :hump:

kook
02-02-2003, 08:43 PM
suck it up... no but seriously workin your legs will do unbelievable things for growing all over... i love leg days and not being able to walk to my car and then waddling around for the next 2 days

John0101
02-02-2003, 08:58 PM
man, I have to walk up and down a steep 30 degree hill 3 or 4 times a day, there's my legs right there. I haven't worked out legs since last summer, I don't want to deal with the pain :bang:

Don't be a pansy. ;) I got miles of walking to do every day of the week and I work 'em. It really will help your gains overall, dude. Even if you just do some deadlifts.

But hey, don't take my word for it. Good luck keeping the motivation going, man! Consistency is the key.

kook
02-02-2003, 09:33 PM
we're all engineering majors.. what do u expect?

John0101
02-02-2003, 10:42 PM
I tried doing deadlifts once looked up how to do it on the web and did it wrong, felt like it was killing my lower back and there isn't a lot of space in my gym. After I plateaued on my back i'm gonna try doing it again, but with light weights (just the bar)...

Kook, u a engineer major too? I'm MIE, not doing too well in my 2nd semester sophomore, I'm already a year behind. I gotta :read: more instead of :smoke: the Chronic... oh well

Check out one of the WBB routines, and work your legs. Will help you reach your goals much faster and with all that walking they won't be sore long. Good luck with the journal.

10am:
I woke up early and had breakfast, I didn't have dinner last night so I was mad hungry. I immediately went to the DC, I had...
2 glasses of milk
1 glass of water
5 hard boiled eggs w/o the yolk
1 suasage

1:30 Lunch:
2 glasses of milk
1 glass of powerade
3 chicken patties

1/2 bowl of tuna
1/2 bowl of rice and beans
some spinach - nasty!

5:30 Dinner:
2 glasses of milk
1 glass of powerade
1/3 plate of noodles
1/3 plate of sweet and sour chicken
1/3 plate of beef and broccoli (sp?)
and some tofu

later on at night, maybe 11pm gonna have myself a megaman 1850 shake with milk and a multivitain cuz i forgot to take it during the morning and also a 600mg glutamine pill

Workout:
I got to the gym alittle late and was about to close in half an hour.
I thought i was going to do back and chest, instead me and my buddy just did chest and some tricepts in his room.

flat bench press

warm up-
45x12

130x10
135x6
140x4
145x3 <--- most i have ever bench on regular flat bench. The smith machine screwed me over big time. :whip:
Rested like 1-2 mins with each set

incline bench press

105x12
115x6

gym closed
:bang:

decided to work on tricepts cuz no way we can do back.
triangle push ups...
12 push ups
8 push ups
weighted 8 pound pushups x 12

12 Dips w/feet on chair
12 Dips w/feet on chair
12 Dips w/ 8 pound weight with feet on the chair

I really didn't feel like I worked out that hard on this workout, especially my chest. I felt like a strip down set would of been nice. But I will see how it goes.

You need ALOT more protein on that diet.
Try to eat more often, smaller meals. Have small snacks between your main meals, you wnat foods high in protein.

John0101
02-03-2003, 10:21 PM
I dunno dude, I ate alot today, i felt full all day. I think that I had over a 3500 calorie diet today w/ mucho fat. 150x18 only = 2700. Feelin fat, also had 4 beers smoked a whole lot of cigs, and smoked some herb... not good or good?

John0101
02-03-2003, 11:46 PM
one more thing I just wanna say...

weightlifting is a powerful learning tool. You make goals and you achieve them through hard work and focus. You learn from your mistakes while doing stuff right is the only way to go. Also it teaches you displine and the value of hardwork.

Even though I'm not big (5'6, 149 pounds, 10-12% bf, looking pretty normal), weightlifting gave me more confidence, better posture, more energy, and a better outlook in life. I know if I can do almost anything if I just work hard enough... (eating so much also gave me some fat around the stomach, but thats alright)

Feelin fat, also had 4 beers smoked a whole lot of cigs, and smoked some herb... not good or good?LMAO, not good! I'm with beastin there too, you need more protein. Try jus some protein shakes inbetween your meals or something. Maybe some protein bars.

And do legs for crying out loud. Squats, leg ext, leg curls, SLDL, calf work... something, anything. You will look really stupid with skinny legs. Your legs can easily get accustomed to the walks to and from class. So when you toss in squats and everything else it won't be any different than anybody else. Just be a man about it. You're only hurting yourself by not doing them in some way. Keep up the hard work and you'll be happy with your progress. I can guarantee it.

Agreed bro, work the legs. Good luck with your goals.

John0101
02-04-2003, 08:40 AM
Since i'm am one of the smallest gyms around here, i'll take everybody's advice around here. I am going to do legs today. Prob just 3 sets of squats and 3 sets of leg extensions. I feel lazy... Anyways think I do get enough protien. around 160g a day, and with my diet I'm full all day. From when I first eat to when I sleep, it's horrible!

bradley
02-04-2003, 10:38 AM
The first day will be the worst, but I think you will be happy that you started working your legs. As long as you are getting 1g per lb of bw I wouldn't worry about the protein.

kook
02-04-2003, 02:43 PM
you've come to your senses brotha. doing legs... i think you've officially become a man.
oh yeh electrical engineering.

Overall I enjoyed working out legs. I hadn't done it in a while, and it feels totally different then working out the upperbody. All good except all the freaking walking i gotta do tomorrow. But like my friend said, "it's a rewarding pain" :hump:

John0101

Back today, did deadlifts for the first time... the struggle
Breakfast
11am
6 eggs
1 glass of milk
1 glass of powerade
1 cup of tofu and tuna
1 cup of yogurt

1:30
1 glass of powerade
1 glass of milk
1/2 Roast Beef Sandwish
1/3 plate of peas
1/3 plate of fried rice
1/3 plate of lo mein
1 cup of tuna and tofu
1 cup of yogurt

3 Slices of Roast Beef
1 Chicken cutlet
1 glass of milk
1 glass of powerade
1 plate of lo mein
1 slice of peacon pie

10:00
1 protein bar
2 glasses of milk w/ 1 cup of protein

Deadlift
135x12
145x12
155x10
135x12

Rows w/dumbell
40x12
40x12
45x12
40x12

Pull Downs
135x12 ??? Forgot the weight, but it was around this area
145x12
155x8 (not quite sure about the weight)

I also tested my bench today. Offical did BP 60x4 without a spot. So I offically skipped 55s!!!! :) Only 2 weeks ago I could barely raise the 55s. I thought it was gonna take me atleast 2-3 weeks to get over 55s when I first start them, now 12 is possible. Hahahha, I dunno why, but my bench strength has beening going up steady far above any other body part. Max 165x1, only 1 weeks ago I could only do 145x3. Ahh and I use to remember in the middle of January I was struggling with 135. I think the squatting really helped out, I dunno why, but the day after I squated I FELT A LOT STRONGER. Hopefully the deadlifts will give me that extra push, maybe gaining those 3 pounds helped also.

Nice work bro. Keep it up!

John0101
02-13-2003, 11:07 PM
was suppose to do chest, but forearms are killing me. I think the superset of bics and trics on saterday and deadlifts yesterday really put a strain on my forearms. No workout today. I'm going to try to eat more clean food. More yogurt, tuna, and tofu. Less fried and greasy foods. Killed a 40 today too in 15-20 mins. Buzzed for a good portion of tonight, might do alittle ab work and shoulders on saterday. Depends trying to get into a solid cycle next week. Stole mad walnuts from the caf. gonna snack on that stuff when i'm sitting on my comp. Hahha

John0101
02-22-2003, 05:04 PM
Chest kinda of sore, expected w/ doing the flyes, haven't done those suckers for a while. Last two months of my first 6month bulk. So far, I went from 135-152 in the past 4 months. But from 142-145 pounds I think I was mostly gaining fat instead of muscle. Going to try to do the last two months with a clean diet. I wouldn't mind only gaining 1/2pound a week if it was mostly muscle instead of fat.

11am
9 eggs (I just ate 1 yolk)
1 Roast beef Sandwish
1 Salad w/tuna + cheese (this is how i'm going to eat my tuna now. I hate tuna and I hate greens, but when you mix them together it's almost bareable)
1 cup of yogurt w/canned fruit on top
1 glass of 2% milk
1 glass of powerade

3pm
1 Roastbeef sandwish

6:30pm
1 glass of 2% milk
1 glass of powerade
1 salad w/ tuna + Cheese
1 Turkey Sandwish
1 Cup of yogurt + fruit on top
1 multivitamin

9pm
1 tuna sandwish
1 glass of water

I need suggestions on my diet. I think i'm getting around 170-200 grams of protien with this diet (i put a lot of tuna on my salads), and it's just around 2200-2400 calories (i think, this is the first time i ever counted my calories). A decent amount of fat and carbs. I need help, I want to make my last two months of bulking clean and gain more lean body mass. Currently i'm at 152pounds 13-14% body fat, 5'6 and lifting 3 days a week. After the next two months, I'm going to start a cut for 4 and go down to 145 w/7% bf.

Chest day today
I think i have been overtaining my triceps, felt week today in the gym.

DB bench press
25x12
45x8 (this was hard, i don't think i could of gotten any more up)
55x8
60x8
60x0 I tried doing another set, but couldn't even get it up. I think i overworked my triceps since i did shoulders 2 days ago, and that is why my chest felt like **** today.

Decline flies
25x12
30x12
35x6
20x12

speed db bench
30x5 x 5 <-- was kinda of slow, but it was my first time

Even though i got 60x8 and that is my personal best for db bench, I think i got a ****ty workout and got weaker. Next week is my final week for my bulk, then i'm gonna start cutting for the summer.

Going to take next week off of working out. Did bench today, only been a month since I started to deadlifts and squat. I feel stronger all over, little more mass and some more fat. I'm going to weight myself tomorrow, expected weight, 152-154 12-14% bf. Going to try to have pics up by sunday. :hide:

Felt like a short workout. Personal best on the 175 for the bench. I feel like that I need more intensity in my workout. My forearms started to hurt when I was benching from the static holds yesterday. They feel over worked. I feel like that I could be doing 145x10-12, 155x6-8, but I can't.

Anyways, my max benched increased from 165 to 175 -180. I kinda wanted to get to 185 by spring break.


Currently...
Max bench 175-180 x 1
Squat 205 x 7
Deadlift 185 x 5
Total power 565 - 570
152-153 13-15% bf

Goals for end of school year
Bench 195 x 1
Squat 260 x 3
Deadlift 225x 3
total 675
weight - 147-150 10-12 %bf

1 month after - same stats, 145-147 8-10 %bf

finding max deads and trying some powercleans

deadlift
95x12
115x8
135x6
155x4
165x4
185x6 <---- this was easier then expected, i could only do 185x5 alittle more then a week ago.
195x4 :eek: easier then expected!!!
205x3 :eek: personal best!

powercleans, my first time doing them. i know, it's pussy weight tuttut
65x8
85x6
95x6
65x8

I keep on messing up getting it up. :confused: Oh well gotta give me credit for trying.

Feelin good, my deadlft went up from 185x5.5 to 205x3 in one week! OMG just like my squat, 185x4 to 205x7, all in one week!!!!
It's been 4-5 weeks, since i started squating and deadlifting and at 205 for reps for both of them (almost for deadlift). Nice to see progress. btw, i think that my forearms got stronger because the last time i did deadlifts i felt like i could do more, but my forearms gave out. Now they all good for 205 :D

p.s. i think imma plateau for both of them around 245-260 cause im try to lose some fat and im gonna lower my calorie intake after next week.

Might want to read the sticky here (http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=26964) :D they'll show up eventually.

You look like you have a good base and you are making gains. Keep it up and you'll be meeting and resetting your goals before you know it.

Was gonna hit 245x6-8 for squat, but a friend of mine from new york came to the gym to greet me for the start of a thirsty thursday, and also the gym is pretty small and squats, leg extension, lunges, and some calves stuff is about all you can do.

Your bodyfat is much higher than 12-14 %. It's probably around 16-18 or higher. Keep lifting hard!

John0101
04-22-2003, 07:18 PM
yeah that was what I was thinking too, 16-18%. I got some pics up @ around 155. I think i wanna cut before I try the creatine, 145 is a nice lean number. Hopefully at around 11-12% bf. I dunno yet, 160 is a solid bulking number.

Anyways was mad week in the gym today. I hurt my neck doing shoulder presses. I guess i should of warmed up more. Oh well. Anyways I also tried to do 70s for DB flat bench. I got the right hand up (was pretty hard, but seems managable). The left one sucked. My spot was a total weakling and couldn't help me get the left one up. (not going to put up the workout since I didn't feel like it was a real workout)

Listening to The Flys - Got You (where i want you), thx MrWebb for the song name. Great song. I love one hit wonders. Brought my fender stratocaster up to school been jamin :D

nice workout.

i agree with what you said about form. i think better form with less weight is more productive then crap form and heavy weight.

I just miss the high intensity of a heavy workout, that really gets me pumped and excited about working out. But i was thinking that with better form your muscles would get worked better then if with higher weights and sloppy form.

i hooked up friend up with some ampethamines pills, he gave me one for free, snorted it, ahhhhhh gave me mad energy then i went to the gym.

My lower chest was still hurting from the chins, so were my traps and lats to some extent. I didn't think my lower back was hurting too, but when I benched i felt it.

just wanted to hit a new pr in bench today, so much energy. Im typing sooo fast right now. Then im going to :study: i got a test tomorrow.

But slowly and steady I broke through and it made it's way up :) I think i can get 195, but it would be a struggle. Gonna try 200 3 weeks from now, aka the end of the semester.

I haven't been able to lift for the last week because of finals, been eating terrible im popping 6-8 ephedra pills a day. Only been eating salads w/tuna and maybe some other meat. I have no appetite. Im always so tired when im not on ephedra... Started smoking again too. TOO MUCH STRESS.

Streak night was suppose to be yesterday night. Seniors who are graduating are suppose to streak right in the quad outside my dorm. Mad cops showed up, 2 bus loads w/hourses and roit gear. Last year the cops broke up the streaking and a few dozen people were arrested. This year was weak. Nobody streak since they were afraid of getting arrested.

John0101
06-10-2003, 08:35 PM
front pic, most muscular. I dont really think that my body has a lot of strengths to it. 151-154 pounds. I think around 15-18% bodyfat. Not quite sure, most likely 16%. I wanna be down to 150 by the end of the month. Then end of next month 145 and then I will see how everything looks from there
