I see a military career in my near future so I figured I would create a journal to track my progress and get in shape. Im weighing around 170-175 these days and Im not really trying to gain mass. I just want to maintain or gain strength and greatly increase my endurance and mental toughness.

Good work man, cardio after squats would definitely be hard, hope you're getting tougher!

Good luck with the journal.

I had a milf with inplants next to me the other day, to make it worse, she was doing SLDL's totally sticking her boobs int he air. I almost fell down while squatting.

Its been a bad week for me. Ive been staying up all night writing papers and havent been able to get to the gym. I finally found some time today even though I felt like crap. I ended up having to do squats last because these stupid kids were using the squat rack for about 40 minutes to do SLDLs. My squat workout sucked so bad I just decided to run.

About a month and a half ago I could barely run 3 miles at all. I think I could probably push 25 minutes now if I was fresh and went all out. My goal is to run it in 21 minutes or less by the end of summer.

Im going to start my first bulk. I will try to gain .5-.75lb each week until I hit 200lbs. I just weighed in at 165 but Im a little dehydrated. I will start weighing myself every Sunday morning after I wake up. My goal is to reach 200lbs less than a year from now.

My core must be catching up with my legs because Ive never squatted as comfortably as I did today. I just felt balanced. My parents got a bowflex, Im going to give it a try and I may start supplementing some of my workouts with it. Might be good for a change of pace.

Hmm, bench and squats are up. Nice. Good luck with this bulk, sounds like slow as a mother, but you don't want any excess mass while running your ass off, do ya?

I havent done any running for 2 weeks. I spoke with my niece's boyfriend who is a Marine that just got back from his 2nd tour of Iraq and my family and him have pretty much talked me out of joining. This guy has done everything asked of him and the military is really treating him like ****. So for now Im going to try to do something else with my life and pack on all the muscle I want.

Not to critique too much, but since you're now packing on mass and strength...

It seems that it would be more beneficial to you to go for heavier weights in your second and third sets. It looks like on most movements you're maintaining the same weight for reps through all of the sets. Personally, I put a * beside every PR I get, and try to best it every week. My results in the strength and size areas have been great. Something like a 10, 8, 6 and step it up to the next 5lb increment for your 10 set the next week, with the others being 5lbs heavier to follow. Continue like that until you plateau. I do realize you're doing a lot of cardio as well, and going heavy makes it harder to hit that..you'll also find cardio that often kills your growth, but I think you already know that as long as you've been around here..is that going to continue now with the decision change, or is it mainly going to be weights?

Or do it your way..either way, nice progress.

I know its not the most effective way to do things, but Ive just never been a fan of pyramid schemes. Once I work up to a weight I like to stick with it until Ive mastered it, then once I have moved up I cant stand to use anything lighter. Like after today Im not going to do any sets of squats with less than 205 ever again other than to warmup. Its kinda like a ritual with me.. I guess Im weird.

Hey..whatever works for you. As long as you're happy with how it's going, then do it. THe workouts look good, and I see you've moved up on the bench again, and almost have it "mastered" as well.

Crap workout, not enough sleep I guess. I got stuck using this crappy old barbell when I did bench. Its slightly thicker than the newer ones, the grip sucks and the rings are spaced differently so it screws me up, it might be heavier too, im not sure.
