Well herre it is, my attempt at a journel! Not sure i'm gona be all too good at this so please bear with me guys! No doubt ill miss out loadsa details that you all wana know but nevertheless on we go.....on a race to greatness!

My Current "state"
At present i am just under 210lbs at 6'1'' with a bodyfat percentage of around 12%. I am 18 years old and have been training seriously for the last 3/4 years and am looking to compete in a regional comp in England (south east) in the junior category next year or following.

My Goals
I'm looking for size baby!! am currently bulking and will be starting (as most of you are aware of!) a test prop cycle in the next 2weeks at 500mg pw. Looking to keep my bodyfat as it is and no higher but will be aiming to hit around 4500/5000cals for the next 3/4months which shouldnt be too much of a problem. So ultimately my goal is to bulk until early next year, then cut for a summer comp, and win the bastard! if i'm not ready i'll wait!

i am currently doing a 4day split rountine. Tuesday - Chest and Tris, Wednesday - Back, Friday - Shoulders and bis, Saturday - Legs
i will include full details as we go as to exercises and weights used!
My Next training session is Tuesday...so i'll look forward to updating you all then!

...Any questions or suggestions along the way are encouraged, come on guys lets make this sh*t a team effort!haha :clap:

Thursday, Back and traps day

Wide grip Pull ups 3sets of 12,11,8
T-bar Rows 180 x 12, 200 x 12, 220 x 10, 200 x 10
Cable Rows 300 x 8, 300 x 8, 280 x 8

Barbell shrug (infront) 300 x 12, 300 x 12, 300 x 10

Went okay really......Still feelin pretty tired during workouts think i might up carbs. Normally do 4set of pull ups but shoulders felt a little sore today from my lame chest session, not good!

Diet was exactly the same as fore-mentioned!

Girlfriends got her Leavers Ball (aka. Prom) tonight which was going to with another bloke (her best mate) becoz people from out of their school arent allowed to go! pissed off to say the least but hey,ill get over it!

Cant wait for my cycle, feels like so long since i was on...lookin 4ward to some meaty gains!

07-03-2004, 05:40 AM
training shoulders and bis tonight. Im gona have a good one i can tell cos im in a f**kin foul mood! last night with the girlfriend being at her ball with another guy was bad enough but my night got worse....picked her up about 1:30am...took her home,got into bed with her,u know holdin eachother n sh*t while she told me about her night. Then she gets a text...a dirty F**KING text!and whos name do i see as the sender!?...my own cousin!!!! he was at the leavers ball too,decided he wanted a bit of his cousins girlfriend,tried it on with her there and then sent her a naughty message while laying next to me!!!

I went absolutely f**kin mental as you can imagine, she finally managed to calm me down but do u know what the best part is? i have my joint 18th and 21st with my sister tonight and our familys gona b there,including that f**kin PR*CK!!!!! ive gotta shake hands n sort him out drinks at my party when all i wana do is break his legs!

anyone got any ideas for ways i can humiliate him without the girl knowing,she threatened to split up with me if i knock him out so this has gona b sneaky!

I've decided to make this journal not only a training journel, but a life experience one too! at least ya'll get some good entertainment!

07-03-2004, 02:24 PM
Dude, I'd ditch the girl in a second.

07-04-2004, 11:45 AM
i cant do it bro...i really am into her in a big way and i dont think it was her fault she received dirty texts off of my ******* cousin! i'm still proper raged with him, if i cud get away with kickin him in without her findin out i would, he deserves nethin he gets, i HATE twofaced people especially people ur supposed to b able to rely on...like family!anywayz guyz....

Saturday, Shoulders and Biceps

Had quite a good workout today, attacked shoulders pretty hard but only did 2exercises for them as follows:

Seated Military Press (smith machine): 170 x 12, 180 x 8, 180 x 8 170 x 8
Stand Lateral Raises: 40 x 12, 45 x 8 then drop set 55 x 4 & 35 x 6
(poundages for lateral raises are the weight of db in each hand not combined weight if you get me!)

Barbell Curls (quite wide grip) 110 x 10, 132 x 6, 132 x 5 plus 2 forced reps (so 7)
Standing alternate db curls 44 x 10, 44 x 10

Only went low volume today because i havent had much sleep and am still aching from back, went quite heavy though (well for me...!haha)

My cycle should arrive in the next 2weeks, it's gonna put an amazin smile on my face! god i love test!

Hope everyone's cool, i'm training legs 2moro so shall update again then, till then....

07-06-2004, 11:56 AM
