well my other one was getting kinda crappy so i'll make a new one.

i haven' tbeen to the gym in 3 weeks. i have been sick all of last week so i'm starting tonight. here is my program for 4 weeks that someone who's name i forget, made for me.

Flat bench Press 2x12

Incline Dumbells 2x12

Dips 2x12


Preacher Curls 2x12

Hammer Curls 1x12

Squats: 1x20
Leg Press: 1x15
Walking Lunges 2x20 (20 steps)

Your calf program will be done on those three days.

Close Grip Chins 2x12
Cable Row 2x12
Hyper Extensions 3x12

Skull Crushers 2x12
Rope Press Down 1x12

Dumbell Press Super Setted with Front Raises

2x12 do the front raises first

i'll be doing calves 3 times a week as they suck. and i've lost like 5 pounds due to the insufficient amount of cals over 3 weeks. i'll sit down and plan my cals later on, but for now, i'll just make sure that i eat 5-6 times a day and i will grow.

and as well, i might play senior ball this year since it is my last year.. so that will affect my gains. but my goal is to add on 10 pounds before december. wish me luck

flat bench press: 130/12, 135/10
incline DB press: 40's/12, 40's/10
dips: 7 :eek: (i was totally gased)
preacher curl: 45/12 45/12

diet hasn't been all that great. but i'm slowly getting back into the swing of things.

today i did legs, with only 4 hours of sleep last night. big math test tomorrow so i'll probably only have 7 hours tonight if i'm lucky.

i modified my program made my some guy name paki, a little because i was gased

1 set of breathing squats: 115/20
lunges: 30x2/20
leg extensions: 110/15
standing db calf raise, L Leg: 30/20, 30/20, R Leg, 30/20, 30/17

my strength has gone down drastically, but i hope i will get it back soon enough. training again on saturday. hopefully, i'll get in 5 meals tonight. peace

bah, gotta keep this thing updated.

well, not much sleep and i feel like i'm dying. it's 12:30 am over here and i'm just done my math :(. but it is friday, and that means sleep in tomorrow!!! oh wait, work on saturday :(

anywho, i worked out on the tuesday:


bench press: 145/12 145/7
incline DB press: 45's/11 45's/11
dips: 12
preacher curl: 55/12 55/12
hammer curl: 25/12
standing calf raise: L leg: 40/20, 45/15, 45/12. R leg: 40/20, 45/15, 45/12.

well, i kinda screwed up on the weight for calf raises. i didn't remember how much i did before so i just kinda jumped into it :(

food has been decent. 5-6 meals a day, at about 600 cals a peice. i will eat this much for another 2 weeks, and then up the cals to 4000.

training tonight. leg day. damnit, i'm only gonna get 6 hours of sleep again :(

wishing you guys all the best,


btw, i'm still lifting panzy weight from taking those 3 weeks off. i'm gaining back really fast though. i made like a 15 pound jump in my bench in a week! must the the cell tech ;)

alright juniors, here's for 01/10/06:

squats: 135/20
leg press: 4 wheels/15
lunges: 35's/20, 35's/20
standing DB calf raise: L Leg: 40/20, 40/18, 40/16. R Leg: 40/20, 40/18, 40/16

**** i was tired, worked from 12:00 - 7:00 and i was on my feet all day walking around putting clothes and other crap away. trained after work and was beat. i could have done a lot more weight for those 20 rep squats, but i'm still not sure of where my strength is yet, but it's coming back really fast. i should be doing my regular weights next week. anyways, happy thanksgiving to all! :)

i'll see if i train tomorrow or not, but probably sunday. anyways, thanks for reading, and god bless.

oh, and a funny story for those who read my journal. i was warming up with 135 for squats, going ass to the grass, and he comes up to me after, offering "free" advice.

guy: "ya, i have some free advice for you so take it for what it's worth"
eric: "ok.."
guy: "i noticed that when you are squatting, you're going to low"
eric: "ok?"
guy: "ya, you shouldn't go more than parellel. 'cause your tendons get stretched"
*he went on for about 5 min about some tendon bullshit*
eric: "ya, 'cause there's this guy i know (i was refering to maki) and he's a personal trainer. he said you should go down to whatever feels comfortable"
guy: "well that guy is just messing with your body. he's wrong"
eric: "ok.."
*guy goes on again about tendon bullshit
eric: "thanks a lot."
guy: "ya, so take that for what it's worth"

stupid idiots. i mean, this guy's a nice guy and all, but don't tell me gay stuff about what i'm doing that's right!!! :mad:
