Hello everyone.. let me introduce myself a little bit.. well im from canada.. stand @ 5'9 and currently weight 160 lbs @ approx. 15% bf.

Well about a year ago.. i was a very overweight guy.. 240 lbs @ my heaviest.. since then ive drope the weight down to 140 using crash diets and way too little calories, too much cardio ect.. then i was introduced to the sport of bodybuilding.. began reading lots of articles and got things straightened out.. over the last 5 months ive gained my weight back to 165 by bulking.. about a month ago i started to maintain/cut.. well i only dropped 5 lbs or so, mostly fat.. and i can START to see some abs form there. so i figure since im prety small, i shoud contine to bulk..

That brings us to the point of this journal.. i plan to keep a semi good detailed record of my stats/excersise/DIET! an all that sorta stuff during this bulk.. i would appreciate if you guys all helped me through it telling me where i can improve ect..

My Long Term Goal is to bulk to 185-190 and try to keep the bf% as low as possible, im gonna try to bulk as cleanly as possible. And then to lean down to sub 10% for summer time.. show off all my hardwork :)

Well, here is what im thinking of for my split..
Monday - Chest/Tri
Tuesday - Legs
Wed. - Cardio ( Low intensity or hit??? )
Thursday - Shoulders/Traps
Friday - Back/Bi's

What do you guys think of it?

I'll keep a record of my 1RM for Bench/Deadlift/Squat.. i do not know what these are yet.. but i will test it out tommorow.

Well that is all i have to say for now.. Start the Spam Guys n Girls :)


Here is a pic of my start bulk :)

I know you are going for a clean bulk, but don't be so hard on yourself. All the worrying will cause more cortisol release, which will probably affect your physique more than a few hundred calories anyday.:D

What I am saying is don't get so stressed out about the little things, and focus on the big picture. One doughnut will not turn you into the Pillsbury Doughboy.

I just got done eating a dozen donuts and I'm not going to feel bad about.

Remember, its all about the calories. As long as you aren't way over in calories, its unlikely that it'll all turn into fat. On a bulk I tend to indulge myself more because I know when I cut that won't be happening.
