Today I am starting my official journal. I haven't lifted anything in a long time, so tonight was spent mainly feeling myself out. Below are the weights that I believe I should start with.

I'm 24 years old
5'9" tall
163.2 lbs
approximately 10-12% bodyfat

I started a modified WBB1 workout routine today.

Chest
Bench press - 160 x 7, 160 x 6
Incline Bench Press - 135 x 6, 135 x 6

Back
Bent arm pullover - 55 x 8, 55 x 8 (slight pain in left shoulder, maybe bad form?)
Barbell Rows - 145 x 8, 145 x 8 (felt like I was using poor form to finish the last few reps)
Shrugs - 155 x 10


Anybody wanna throw in some pointers or other advice?

Nice session, good luck with your goals. Just curious though, why did you drop the deadlifts from the routine?

I didn't list them because I didn't use any real amount of weight. Just getting the form down first. What part of the back does the dead lift build?

This is a pic of me. This pic isn't current (isn't old either), but I still have the same build... minus the defined abs.

Those aren't bad stats to start out with. When I started BB'ing I was 1 inch shorter and 3% Fatter lol

I'll pop in here from time to time to check your progress man.

Today I just studied the forums on bulk diets. I still don't quite understand all that I saw today, but I'm sure it will be clearer after I try it on my own body.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Today's food intake:

Meal 1 - nothing

Meal 2 - 2 cups popcorn

Meal 3 - Bacon cheeseburger, medium fry, medium coke

Meal 4 - 5 chicken fingers, ranch sauce, can of coke

Meal 5 - 2 turkey sandwhiches w/mayo and cheese

Meal 6 - nothing

Also drank 3 bottles of Gatorade Propel throughout the day.
----------------------------------------------------------------

I used fitday.com to calculate the stats:

And get rid of the carbonated drinks from your diet. Not entirely, but just take it easy on them.
