Ok, well, I started a journal a loooooonng time ago, but I never kept it up, so I figure I'll start a new one, so I can get some useful advice, and keep track of my progress. As for meals, I don't think I'm really gonna post them on here, but if you want to know, just ask, and I'll post it up. Also, I'll put up some pre-bulk pictures, and then in a few weeks once I hit 157 pounds, I'll get some new ones with some proper poses.

So today was leg day, and my workout went as follows:

Squats:
135x10
155x5
185x3
225x2(New Personal Best, Yay!)

Leg Extensions:
90x12
90x12

Leg Curls:
35x10
45x5(My hams are very weak)

Calf Raises:
240x10
250x8
250x7

Tiger Runner:
90(per leg)x10(per leg)
100x8

Comments: Well, today was the best leg workout I've had in weeks. I set a new PR in squats, which felt really good. Otherwise, my legs just got hammered, and I gave it my all.

Ok, here is me at 143 pounds. Not too impressive, but a big step up from 95 pounds.

Today was back day. It was also the first day I've done good mornings, and the first day I've taken creatine. My back routine was as follows:

Pull-ups:
bwx10
bwx6

Close Grip Pulldowns:
100x12
120x6
140x3

Seated Rows:
80x15
100x10

Good mornings:
65x5 (way too easy, upped the weight)
85x5 (still too easy)
95x8 (good workout)
95x8

Comments: As some of you may know, my weights teacher refuses to let us do standard deads, so I can't do them. I try to sub other things in, but sometimes it just doesn't work.

Now I have a few questions for anyone reading this......1. When I'm working my lats, I feel a strain in my right lat, but not in my left one. I've tried leading with my left, and still nothing. Is it just possible that my left lat overpowers my right one? 2. At my size (~153 pounds) is 5 grams a day of creatine mixed w/ water after my workouts sufficient or should I be taking more?

well, i did arms yesterday, i just didnt have time to post before now, but anyways:

Pressdowns:
50x12
50x10

Tri Extensions:
100x8
90x10

Cable Curls:
90x8
100x5

Comments: Today I lacked motivation, as it is almost christmas break for me, and today was friday. I still did some things, and what I did, I tried my hardest at, just I didn't have to motivation to work shoulders :/. Oh well, one week won't kill me I guess.

Today was chest day, and our weights teacher made us max, so I decided what the hell, why not:

Chest:

BB Bench:
135x5 (warm-up)
155x3
175x1 (Woo-hoo! New PR!)

DB Incline:
40'sx5
45'sx3
50'sx2

Flat Cable Flys:
50x12
60x8
70x5
80x3

Comments: Woo-hoo, I set a new P.R. for my bench. I guess the creatine really does help me out after all. Anyways, I only got 4 hours of sleep last night, I couldn't get myself to fall asleep, but whatever, today was a good day for me. I'm starting to run out of whey, so I'm thinking I need to run down to Costco and grab one of their giant tubs of whey.

alright, i'm back after a week off for christmas. so my lifts dipped a little bit, but i think by next week they'll be back to where they were:

Tuesday: Chest/Tri's

Bench:
145x3
150x2
160x1
(I was trying to do a 3x3 for bench, but it didn't work out too well :/ ).

Incline DB Press:
40'sx8
45'sx5

Tri Pressdown:
55x10
60x5

Comments: Bench didn't work out too well today, but it felt good to be training again. Training got cut short, so I didn't have time to do another exercise for my tri's, but oh well.
