Day 7: Rest (tournaments if applicable)

Abdominals to be performed on any training day.
Crunches on a decline bench 3x10
Russian Twist 2x10

Current stats:
6'1"
195 Lbs.
16.5% body fat

Goals:
185 Lbs.
9% body fat
Strength gains
Explosiveness gains

Diet: Mediocre. Its not going to be great but i'm not going to go in the tank either. I have gone hardcore in the past and probably will before this is over but not yet. I will track it in the journal either way though.

Supplements: Protein (Nature's Best ISO PURE), some meal replacement shakes(EAS Myoplex), Creatine(Generic GNC), and ETS(AtLargeNutrition). The ETS should arrive mid-week.

I really want to finish all 12 weeks. The longest I've managed to go in my on and off lifting career is 8 weeks. If i ever get a digital camera i'll post pics.

It's good to hear positive feedback from lifting, once you start SEEING and FEELING those gains, it can become addictive, but what better addiction than being healthy! Don't say all that crap about "being a wuss"... you're IN the gym making a personal EFFORT, that's far from being a wuss. Strength will come in time, focus on form first (like with squats, keep them deep and steady, shoulders back, back arched) and you will know when it's time to up the weight, don't rush it. I mean, you have AT least 12 weeks to worry about that right? :evillaugh
