I was looking at some other journals and decided it would be fun to start one of my own. I've been working out for about 9-10 months now. I'm very dedicated and enjoy being in the gym. I also love metal and playing guitar \m/.

I did a back/tri workout today. I was a little bit tired but happy with my workout nonetheless.

I did a Chest/Bicep workout today. It was the first time I did a workout aimed more at strength/power than hypertrophy. It felt pretty good to switch things up. I didn't have a spot for bench press so I used the dumbells for dumbell press and only a bit of bench press.

My squat record is pretty unaccurate. I don't think I was even hitting parallel when I was hitting those numbers. I'm starting ass to grass this week.

Thanks anyways though

It was my first day using creatine and i'm excited to see if it does anything or not within the next couple weeks. I did a shoulder workout today and had lots of energy. It was a good workout overall.

Military Press
10/85 (warmup)
10/90
8/95
6/100
4/105 x 2 I was actually going to up the weight for a couple sets but the rack is set in such a way that you have to reach backwards in order to get the barbell off. I couldn't get 110 off the rack, which was kind of dissapointing.

Dumbell Military Press
10/35
8/40
6/45
3/50
failure/55
3/50
5/45

Barbell Upright Row

4/90

Barbell Shrugs
10/180 (warmup)
8/200
6/210
4/220

My dad wants me to change my schedule to upper/lower so that I can do all of the compound movements and more often. Any opinions on this?

That looks like a lot of volume to me. How is your energy towards the end of the work out? How much rest do you take between sets?

It was a little bit long of a workout, but my energy wasn't too bad at the end. My rest between sets kind of depends on reps/weight so usually around 2-4 minutes.

Today is my rest day so I won't be doing too much. Tomorrow i'm starting an upper/lower routine so that I use only compound movements and do 1-2 excersizes for each body part in a workout.

I haven't posted in a while but I also missed a few gym days. I did a Chest/Triceps workout on the 31st and I was pretty happy with my bench press. It was pretty short because I did my workout at home company was coming over.

Bench Press
10/115
10/125 (+5)
8/130 (+5)
5/135 (next time I will get 6)
4/135
1/145
1/150 (Personal best)

Close Grip Bench Press- Didn't really record weights because I was rushed

_______________________________________________________________

After missing a couple days because I'd been spending time with friends I was able to get to the gym today for a shoulder workout. My military press has gone up 10 pounds in 2 weeks.

Military Press
10/90

10/70
10/80
8/90
6/90x 2
5/90

Barbell Shrug- It was a little odd this time because instead of using an easy curl bar I used a straight barbell. Gripping the bar was a lot harder this time but i'm going to stick with it so that my grip gets stronger.

8/205x2

Today was a leg workout that didn't go over to well. I was doing some squats and I must have pulled my hamstring. I cut my leg workout a bit short and did some bench press. I was pretty stoked about my BP because I hit 135x6.

It was my first time combining Back/Biceps and my biceps felt pretty burnt out by the end. The deadlifts were tough but I gave it my all and went up about 10 pounds. Me and a buddy were trying out a gym that was attached to the high school we are going to next year. I liked the atmosphere and it seemed like more of a bodybuilder/powerlifter's gym.

Capn Crunch - Thanks a lot man

I was pretty disappointed today with my workout, especially my bench press. This was probably due to working my chest the day after I had a back workout.
