View Full Version : here I go...

I finally decided to post my pics, as I suppose I'll be starting a journal soon.

I hate my chest. I don't really have access to a bench yet, but I use these Power Pushup 2 (http://www.lifeline-usa.com/products.cfm?categoryid=4&productid=12) things, but my main exercise I suppose is the chest flys. I'm at 40x10x3 (weightXrepsXsets) once a week, and I hope to get to at least 80 by the end of the year.

Oh what the heck, I do all these just once a week...

Back and Traps:

Barbell Shrugs: 105x10x3
Dumbell 1-Arm Lying Row: 60x10x3


1 6-green cable Power Pushup 2 (http://www.lifeline-usa.com/products.cfm?categoryid=4&productid=12) hooked on to pushup bars :) : (5-10)x3

Chest Flys: 40x10x3


Booty-to-floor squats: 125x10x3
Standing 1 Legged calf raises: 105x30x3
Straight-leg deadlift: 105x10x3


(triceps) Lying Dumbell Extension: 25x10x3
Dips: 50x5x2

(biceps) Concentration Curls: 42.5x7-10x3
Underhanded Pullups (for lats as well): 20x(7-10)x3

(forearms)Reverse Dumbell curls: 37.5x10x3 (easy, but I'm taking my time in increasing resistance)

I'd like someone to guess my weight as well :) (I'm 5'8.5 or so). My personal goal (which I"m sure I'll probably try to surpass once I get there) is 170 @ 10% bodyfat. Partly cosmetic, but I just love the feeling of the pump :)

What is stopping you from joining a gym?

05-16-2004, 10:59 PM
I'll be able to, soon, in the future. I'm gonna try the equipment I have at my home for awhile, though. I plan to visit the gym once I get my car this week, if they'll let me just look around in there... Do they usually let people do that? I've never actually been inside one, only seen the machines through the glass.

They will most certainly let you look around. I workout at home, and find it much easier. Some perfer the gym, it all depends on what you like.

Yeah, I can easily see the benefits of working out at home. I mean I have a frickin mini gym in there, barbells and all. My mom won't get rid of that ridiculous Body by Jake that she has NEVER USED ONCE so I could put a cheap bench in there (mainly to make chest flys and ab work easier).

The true ultimate reason I don't bench though is because I don't have a spotter at home. If I start going to a gym, I'll see if someone would like to spot for me :).. I'm also very curious about those Smith machines and stuff.
