View Full Version : Steves Mission to 170

09-04-2003, 09:14 PM
Hey im 16 years old and im bulking now, Some of you may know me i had a journal here at Wbb before but im making a new journalwith new goals. i weigh 162 pounds and i have gained 4 pounds last month on my diet. My goal is to have a clean bulk up to 170 then cut. But my main focus is to just get to 170 for now. My Bf% was tested at 19.3% but its not that accurate the trainers say. On my jounal im going to be recording all my workouts, my foods i eat everyday and my Total Daily Intake for Calories, Fats, Carbs and Protein. My nutrisional goals are to eat 1 g. of protein per pound of weight at least, 25%-30% fat and 50%-60% carbs, and i want to eat 3500 calories a day. I have been playing around with difrent calorie amounts and ive found out that i gain 1 pound a week on average at the calorie intake for a week. The reason im bulking is to get maximum stengh then cut down to show what i have worked for. I am trying to also get stronger, faster, and more powerful for my upcoming High school baseball team in march so that is my deadline to bulk and cut. ( approximatly 7 months from now)

My max lifts 1 ROM


Bench Press- 140,

Deadlift- 185


Upcoming Goals


Bench Press-180

Deadlift- 250

Squat- 225-250??

Bf% Goal-19%

Cardio- 20 minutes of intense Bike riding

Lifting-Shoulders, Biceps, Triceps, Forearms

Standing Military Press 65x10,65x10-It felt really weird while doing this exercise. I had a twitching sensation in my right arm. I used to have this feeling before i had my surgery. It starts at my elbow and goes all the way up to my little pinky. Otherwise from that this exercise felt really good. I felt it on my back.

Concentration Curl Machine-80x12, 90x12- Could have done more weight but this was the first time on this bicep machine. I felt a really good burn in my biceps. But next week i think i want to do preachers curls instead.

BB Bicep Curls-55x12, 60x10- My veins in my arms were pumped like crazy while doing this exercise. I got a great burn in my biceps and i really felt it. I felt that i got more of a burn doing 12 reps then 4-6 reps. This was a great exercise today.

Close Grip Bench Press-110x8,115x7- This exercise felt really good while i was doing it. 115x8 is an all time record for me on close grip bench press. I improved from last weeks 115x6 to 115x8. I felt really good about this exercise. My left wrist still gives out in the later reps because its weaker from when i hurt it a few months ago.

NewsPaperRollUp- Failure, Felt a great burn.

Front Raises- 15x12, 20x8-I felt like i got a good burn in my shoulders and 20x8 in a record high for me.

Lateral Raises-12x12- This is an exercise i need to improve on. I could have done more weight but i didnt want to hurt my rotator cuff since i previously hurt it 2 days ago playing baseball.

Hammer Curls-20x12- could have and should have done more. My biceps were really tired so i only did 20x12 but i think i might have been able to pull of 25x12. Im going to try that next workout.

Tricep Pushdown-100x12, 110x12- This exercise felt really good and i felt a pretty good burn in my triceps. I think i could have done more weight but this was the first time i had been on this machine and i was taking it a little easy.

Wrist Curls-25x12- Felt good

Static Holds-Failure- Felt the burn in my forearms and fingers

Farmer's Walk-Walked back and Fourth twice across gymx60llb. I felt an incredible burning sensation while doing these. It was a wonderful feeling. After doing these my forearms had a huge pump and i loved it.

Walking Wrist Killers-Failure- Did a pretty bad set only did it for about 10 seconds, i was worried about stressing my shoulder and i was way too tired. These are crutial for building mass in my forearms next week i will try harder and accomplish them.

Comments- Today was a pretty good day. I had a good day on the diet. And i had a great day at the gym. Today was an overall good day.

Comments- Today was a pretty good day on my diet, but i should get some more protein and some more good fats in my diet and lower my carb intake, but besides that i had a pretty desent day. Friday is my chest/back day im excited.

Baseball Update**- Today we lost our second game of the season 7-1 to manchester, we played at the silkworms field and it was pretty kool. Today i was the designated hitter because my arm was sore the game before so they wanted to give me a rest. I went 2-3 today with 2 solid infield singles. My first at bat i hit a hard ground ball in the gap between 1st and 2nd and the first basemen got it and i slid head first into first base and beat it out. My next at bat i hit a hard grounder between 3rd and shortstop and the shortstop dove and caught it and threw a bad throw to first and i beat it out. My last at bat a hit a solid linedrive/ high pop to right field, but i felt good about it since i went with the pitch and hit it hard.
