Hey everybody. I am on the quest for body perfection, and thought that keeping a daily journal would keep me encouraged and motivated. I might add pictures later on.

I'll start out with my stats:
Age: 13
Height: 5'6
Weight: 132
Body Fat: Unknown
Max bench: 100-105?
Max squat: 130
Max dead lift: Unknown
Suppliments: Whey Protein, Creatine
Diet: Bulking
Arm: 11 inches
Calf: 14 inches
Waist: 30 inches
Chest: 31 inches

(Oh and by the way, I just started working out)

*NOTE* I will get all the unkown information as soon as possible.

Day One, Monday March 15
Went to gym for the first time ever today :clown:

Green= unchanged
Red= changed
***= see note at bottom

| Workout______| Pounds_| Reps_| Sets_|

NOTES: On the squatting, I had a difficult time due to my Oshgenslaughter (Spelling?) in my knees. My brother's friend said it was normal to hurt the first couple of times

Food today:
Break fast: 2 boiled eggs w/ pepper, peanut butter on crackers
Lunch: Lean turkey on wheat, resins
Dinner: Steak & a ceaser salad :D

Side comments: Pretty easy day, as all this week will be. Just basically learning the movements.

Sh!mA if you havn't seen a sports therapist for the oshgenslaughter go do that. I had it and it was pretty debilatating for soccer until I got it checked out.

Mikey: I just had a really good convo with someone so im coming up with a new diet that you will see tomorrow.

Khar: Yeah, I have a brace but it barely helps, and I sure dont want surgery so I'm unsure of what to do. It doesnt hurt all the time , maybe 1 out of the 10 times I run for cardio or when I squat.

Khar

You will grow out of it eventually...most likely until then just do knee excersizes and keep using the brace.

Yeah, I wish I didnt have it though :( Oh, and I just realized my max bench is 95, not 90 :D

Tuesday, March 16
Today was not a good day at all weight wise. My brother refused to take me to the gym. To make up for it I did 300 crunches, played B-Ball for an hour or so, and jogged a long time, and I got some creatine powder from a local sport shop :D

Meal 1:
4 packs of raisins (doh, I know, I misunderstood someone :( )

Meal 2:
2 bannanas
apple juice
yogurt

Meal 3:
2 turkey burgers
Rice

Meal 4:
Turkey slices

Meal 5:
Grilled chicken
Strawberries
Carrots
Pasta

Meal 6:
Skipped :(

Side notes: Hopefully tomorrow I can have a big workout day (chest) and will be back on track.

Oh and btw, no one ever answered my first question about if your knees should hurt the first few times while doing squats....

Jiin10
03-16-2004, 10:10 PM
hey Sh!ma good luck with your new workout! Make sure when you are doing the squats that your knees stay parallel with your feet, if you cannot see your feet when squatting because your knees are further out than your feet you will blow your knees to sh*t. dont know if thats why your knees were hurting but check out your stance next time youre squatting

Sh!mA
03-17-2004, 01:16 PM
Thanks Jiin, I will be sure to take that advice to mind when I squat :D

First off let me just start out by saying happy Saitn Patrick Day :moon: I hope you're wearing green :)

Today was a great workout. I worked my chest, biceps, shoulders, and traps. Also, I tested creatine today. It rocked, although it tasted horrible :fart:.

1 Cup of Bannana/Strawbery V8 Splash
1 Scoop of chocolate protein powder
[All blended into a GREAT smoothie, I highly recomend it]

Meal 3:

Sunflower seeds
Carrots

Meal 5

4 White Meat Chicken Strips

Notes:
1. I always start out with a warm out set. Good idea or bad idea?
2. I'll make sure to get some more eggs tonight :D
3. I wasn't hungry

Side Notes: Chest is really sore (good thing though) and shaky :evillaugh: I cant wait to see some improvements :D. Also, could someone tell me if this is a military press? :strong: ? Or similar to that? I brought the bar down to my chest, then brought it above my head, then back down to my chest. Thanks in advance!

I will not have any journal entries for 3 days, because me and my family are going camping :( I hate camping :bang: I'll try to do situps and pushups whenever I can :D

I worked my chest, biceps, shoulders, and delts (I think this is the right name for the muscle near your neck).
Actually I think you may be referring to your trapezius. :)

Sh!mA
03-17-2004, 05:34 PM
I made some editing :D I need more feedback guys :(

Sh!mA
03-17-2004, 06:20 PM
Oh, and does all creatine taste that bad?

TheGimp
03-18-2004, 12:47 AM
lol first I get a post stickied, now I'm quoted in someone's sig. Go me! :D

Delts are your shoulders. Check out this link: http://www.exrx.net/Lists/MMale.html . You can click anywhere on the body and it will tell you the name and other info about the muscle. Word of warning tho - the guy's nekkid :p

I think creatine is suppose to be tasteless, I generally just mix it up with my protein shakes.

EDIT: Also, yes this :strong: is pretty much a military press. Check out this (http://www.exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html) link for videos of lots of exercises. (Part of the same site as the muscle map).

i recommend doing a warm up set for all the big muscle groups. Also it sounds pretty close to a military press what you were doing, were you seated or standing? Try doing them seated, it will hit the delts real nice especially the fronts.

Jiin10:
I was standing :D

In case you can't see, I'm back from camping. I tried to stay on my diet, but it was hard because we were in the middle of no where.... I'll continue on Monday.

Welcome back from camping. ;) Sometimes you just have to make the best of your diet for the few days that real life interfers. Hope the camping was at least fun.

As for the creatine, I've tried a few brands and never find it tastes like anything. Others have commented on the tasted but I just never noticed it.

Get huge dude!
