Well, I guess it's time for me to start a journal.

I'm 15 years old, 5'9 or so, 163 lbs. I'm looking to bulk around 180 or more if I can do it staying lean. I've been seriously lifing for about 2 months now. I'm taking in around 3.5 - 4000 calories per day, and my only supplement is whey protein.

My routine is currently:

Day 1: Chest
Day 2: Biceps/Core
Day 3: Triceps/Forearms
Day 4: Back
Day 5: Shoulders/Traps
Day 6: Legs/Core
Day 7: Rest

Many people have told me I should try for a 3 or 4 day split and not work a different muscle every day, but I prefer this one. I like being in the gym everyday, I love the atmosphere and the people. Don't ask why.

Anyway, today was a rest day, tomorrow I'll post my chest routine.

don't listen, just do what you want to do, as long you're aware of when overtraining occurs.

BlingMeter: If a chick couldn't handle him spending a hour or two in a gym, she ain't worth it, seriously.

Your title caused me to picture a large monster in a pink tutu ice skating :confused:

For that, I spam your journal :spam:

Well, after school today there was a fight, but it sucked, the guys were pussies. After the fight me and my partners hit the gym. It was our chest day today.

Flat Barbell Bench
Warmup Sets
135x10
145x6
150x4
155x3

Incline Dumbell Press
55's x 10
60's x 7
60's x 6
60's x 6

Pec Dec Machine
180x10
185x6
190x4

Dips
BW x 7
BW x 6
BW x 6

I've dropped some weight/reps in almost everything due to being out of the gym for two weeks with tonsilitis, though the day did go better than I thought it would. Diet has been pretty solid so far today, I've takin in around 2800 cals and I'm not done, probably gonna drink a shake and eat some fruit or whatever I feel like to get about 1000 more.

And thanks for the input about the routine guys, I don't think I'm overtraining but I'm to too sure yet, I'll give it a few weeks see how my gains are.

Chase, instead of that, picture a big, hairy best in hockey gear hitting everyone in their path while still sniping out some nice goals ;)

Looking good. HOw bout some flies instead of the pec deck? U doing some forced reps during the end? With the 155x3 i woulda done 155x3 +2/3 forced reps

Looks like you coulda done 65's for the dumbell inclines.

Ill look forward to your making progress and will be watching your journal!

what exaxtly are your goals? U said u wanna bulk up to 180, but what about lifting? u want to bench 225? 315? etc

Hockey66
11-15-2004, 08:25 PM
Thanks Bling, umm I put I wanna bulk to 180, thats just a short term goal though, once I get to 180 I'll probably still want to get bigger, because I'm already pretty cut.

With my lifts I want to bench 225, Squat 315, and Deadlift 405

That will be a while though. In the short term I want to be able to bench 180x6. In the LONG term I wouldn't mind doing 315/405/495.

BlingMeter
11-15-2004, 08:51 PM
sounds like some nice goals. Id say by next year ud would have reached most of ur goals!

Ahhh had a math test today, I think I did pretty good. Today was my Bicep/Forearm day. It went a lot better than I thought it would after my break, I wasnt very far off (maybe 1-2 reps) my previous lifts. It went something like this:

Barbell Standing Curls
80 x 8
80 x 6
80 x 6
90 x 2

Hammer Curls
35's x 7
35's x 6
35's x 6

Preacher Curls
65 x 10
75 x 7
75 x 6
75 x 6

Static Holds
BW+45 x Failure
BW+45 x Failure
BW+45 x Failure

Wrist curls
70 x 30
70 x 25
70 x 25

Diet has been good so far.

BlingMeter

I dont understand why u do 2 sets of the same weight? why dont u do

Barbell Standing Curls
80 x 8
90 x *
95x*

Hammer Curls
35's x 7
40x*
45* failure

Preacher Curls
65 x 10
75 x 7
85x*
90/95x failure

IMO and maybe some others ud get stronger faster than they way ur doing it.

Hockey66
11-16-2004, 07:43 PM
Im not sure I never really thought about doing that, sounds like a good plan though.

Stephen Riddington
11-16-2004, 11:32 PM
I agree with Bling, in some of the exercises, I can tell you can do more weight than you're doing now. If you're wanting to get big, go heavier weights.



BTW: You're stronger than me :( Keep it up, dude. :)

Hockey66
11-16-2004, 11:40 PM
Thanks for the input guys, I'll go heavier in all my lifts next week :) How old are you CH? Do you play hockey too? Just keep at it and you'll eventually catch up! :thumbup:

I'm 23, can't skate worth ****, but hockey's in my blood since I'm a fellow Canadian just like you.


BTW: Will be taking skating lesson next year, so I could play some orgaznized hockey someday.

Hockey66

Skating is probably my strongest aspect of the game. My hands suck though, so I have to make up for them with size :) Today was tricep day, didn't have much time so I had to cram it all into a short workout.

Dumbell Overhead Extentions
70 x 7
70 x 6
80 x 2
85 x 1.. with a tiny bit of help from spotter

Skullcrushers
75 x 8
80 x 4
80 x 3

Close Grip Bench Press
115 x 10
120 x 8
130 x 5
135 x 3

Today's workout felt relatively good, but had very little rest inbetween sets due too lack of time. I actually close gripped more now that I did before the break (felt good too push those plates), but all my other lifts went down. Weird.

Hockey66
11-17-2004, 10:27 PM
Thanks for the replies guys. Bling I'm not sure as to how the advice is working because I've only used it for one workout but it sure feels great.

My skulls might be close but your bench is double mine lol.

Today was back day. Felt relatively good. First time I've EVER done deadlifts, I always been too scared to have bad form and mess up my back, but one of the trainers showed us and said we were doing it perfectly. I didn't go too heavy on my deadlifts, just wanted to get the form down. None of them were too failure, could've gone much longer.

Hope you're getting good ROM on those DB rows! You've got some great strength for somoene our age, keep it up.

Hockey66
11-19-2004, 12:25 AM
Thanks for the replies. For the ROM on the dumbell rows I stretch my arm to almost touching the ground then pull the weight untill it is touching my body with my elbow in the air. Thanks, by reading your journal you do too.

Felt like a pretty good session today. For the side laterals I felt I was sacrificing weight for form when doing the 30's, and felt the 25's much better even though I was doing lower weight higher reps. All around it wasn't bad though.

Hockey66

Ahh missed my leg day today due to lack of time, though I did get an awesome cardio workout. At hockey only 7 players showed up to our game. Talk about a workout, only one spare defense and one spare forward. By the 3rd period I had trouble lifting my legs off of the ice to skate. It was nuts.

Canadian Crippler
11-20-2004, 08:15 PM
Those are strong shrugs! Don't worry about sacrificing weight for form; form is more important. I personally don't mind losing my form just a TAD bit to pull out a last rep, though it's nothing major. Some people might disagree, some people might agree.

Damn, 7 players? That's some good cardio, lol. Hope you're coach didn't kill you on any warmups!

Hockey66
11-20-2004, 08:20 PM
Yeah I have pretty strong traps.. my grip actually gives out first ususally tryin to build it up. The coach was actually pretty easy on us, I guess he was greatful that we showed up.

Bahhh...

Just got home form hockey. I scored two goals, two others on my team scored, we were winning 4-0 going into the 3rd. We continued playing good but our goalie **** the bed. We lost 5-4. Good thing nothing was on the line besides bragging rights.

Well, If anyone's been wondering why I haven't been updating my journal, its because first I screwed up my shoulder bad in hockey, then my computor was FUBAR for awhile, and I only had time to come on here at school or friends houses, etc. But now my computers fixed I'm gonan start updating again. First session is on Monday.
