Haha wow those are some ambitious goals.... 48lbs of lean mass for short term? Good luck man... you'll be a damn beast at 200lbs 8%. You're young though... so it could be possible to gain that much in a short amount of time.

I may not remember all of my weights correctly, but I worked out chest and abs today. It only took a half an hour!

I'll start listing them differently:

Smith leg press: 100x10, 130x10, 140x10, 150x7

Calf raises on the smith machine used for leg press: 80x12, 80x12, 80x12

Weighted crunches (*sigh* another machine): 100x10, 110x10, 120x8

Leg extensions: 100x12, 120x10, 150x8

I've eaten an entire jar of natty pb today because I was very active. I walked a total of 1 hour today to and from both of my camps.

I had a baseball game two days ago, yesterday, and now I have one today. In the one on Saturday, I hit an inside-the-park home run, had a double, and I pitched 3 scoreless innings. Then, on Sunday, I had an All Star game. I doubled, struck out, and got an infield single. I pitched 1 inning and the catcher was afraid of me, so he could hardly catch the ball, and I ended up giving up 3 runs... :( I was sweating so much during that game! I was only wearing an undershirt and a cotton "jersey," but it looked like someone had dumped a cooler of water on me. I was drinking plenty of water. I have my last baseball playoff game for our in-house league, and if we win this game, we're going to the championship!

Later on today, I'll post my workout. I'm working bis, chest, and forearms.

Chest/bis
stupid smith bench press: 120x10, 140x10, 150x8
machine flies: 60x10, 70x10, 80x10
ab machine: 100x10
machine bicep curls: 50x10, 60x10, 80x8
incline machine press: 80x10, 90x10, 100x10

Comments
I'm just getting bored of this workout. Overall, I'll give it a C. They were supposed to show us bench and squat today, but I finished my workout and left before they did. *sigh*

Wow, I haven't posted for a WHILE. I think I'm gonna have a personal trainer issue at the lifting camp. They wanted us to do certain excercises, record the reps/ weight, and record them.

lat pulldown 2x130x8
machine bench press 2x150x10
shoulder press 2x130x10
tricep pushdown 2x110x10
leg extensions 2x170x10

This morning, I felt like ****. I was throwiing up like there was no tomorrow. I basically sat around eating saltines all day and missed football camp. My workout felt awesome though. I felt like the biggest guy in the room. One of the older guys saw me doing lat pulldowns and was like, "Good job!"

Then some guy asked to see my sheet of paper with my lifts on it and when I showed him, he was like, "HOLY CRAP!!!," and ran away. Now keep in mind, this kid was maybe 5'10, 180 pounds at like 30% bodyfat, so it probably wont take much to impress him. :D

Overall rating: A+ :)

June 18

They actually made workouts for us based on what we put down on Wednesday. I didn't have time to get my full workout in because all the upperclassmen football players came in at 7:30

I was so sick on Friday that I couldn't lift, but I got it in today.

Machine bench press: 10x110, 8x130, 6x140

leg press: 10x140, 8x160, 6x190

lat pulldown: 10x100, 8x120, 6x130

db military press: no time for it :(

low cable row: no time for it

leg curl: wtf? I hate this exercise. No way in hell I'm doing it. Plus, no time lol.

Comments
I could have done more on both lat pulldown and machine bench press. On leg press, I actually surprised myself. I feel good in the gym finally. :eek: I feel zoned into my lifting and nothing else. I like this new feeling lol.

im just curious... who gave you this routine? is it for football? because its really bad... i would substitute the machine bench press for a regular bench press, leg press for squat, and lat pulldown for pullups. the leg curl isnt a great exercise for strength... but its better than nothing.

fixationdarknes
07-18-2005, 01:35 PM
:withstupi

And if you don't like doing Leg Curls (I don't blame you because I don't like them either) just do SLDLs. Much better for strength anyway.

Lol. i know that routine sucks ass. That's because it's not mine. They make all of our stuff up for us. :rolleyes: I would be using basically all free weights if it were up to me, and I'd be on my own split. Instead, they make up this stuff. They don't let the freshman do deads or squats. I feel like a caged in animal...

I think my cheat meal gave me a little more energy than usual. I was bouncing off the walls today. I ate a whole UNO's deep dish pizza, totaling 2500 calories. Even though I had a lot of energy, I half-assed the machine bench because I'm sick of it!!! :mad: The leg presses felt really good, and I'll move up the weight to 200 next time.

Overall: A

I haven't posted here much. My current weight is 162. I have come up with this plan: I'm going to bulk until maybe late September/ early October. I will then start a powerlifting routine to get my strength up for wrestling. I will then, during the season, gain endurance back, and have that strength still there, so I'll be good to go. :) Sound good?

Dang! I haven't been able to get on the site for a while!

08-27-2005

^^^ my last post date. :p

An update:

Deadlift: 225x1
Bench: somewhere in the whereabouts of 135-145
Squat (did a real one for the first time yesterday) 185x6, which will go up once my back muscles get used to the bar being there.

My current weight is 164 @ about the same bf%. I am hoping to get up to 170 to wrestle 171. I have already starting my powerlifting routine, so I'm all good to go with that. I just gotta make sure I'm doing my cardio. I get up at 4:45AM, drink a whey shake, wait about an hour, and pretend like I ran. :D I will be doing cardio 3-5 times a week. Things like interval training, sprints, regular jogging, and sometimes low intensity if I get DOMS from squatting or deads. I will try and update as much as I can.
