Hey everybody. My last journal more or less flopped, but when I started that one I didn't have near as much motivation as I do now. Don't know why, but hey, I'm not complaining. I'm going to be sticking with WBB 1 (with a couple modifications) for a while with Tuesday being "Day 1" (Chest and Back). So, here's what went down today:

Chest:
Bench Press (Flat): 115 lbs, 2 x 8 (Was pretty easy, going to try for 120 next week)
Bench Press (Incline): 115 lbs, 2 x 8 (Ditto)
Dips: 2 x 8

Back:
[Chin ups: No place to do them... working on that]
Deadlifts: 105 lbs, 2 x 8 (Going to try 110 next week)
Barbell Rows: 70 lbs, 2 x 8
Shrugs: 70 lbs, 2 x 8 (Going to try 75 next week)

Honestly I hate those numbers, and I'm really looking forward to getting them higher. Today's diet consisted of mostly milk, along with 2 bottles of gatorade, a protein bar, the schools chicken nuggets (Sadly one of the healtier things served), and pork chops, salad, and 1/2 a potato for dinner . I think I'm going to start packing my own lunch to school. A peanut butter sandwich or something. Really I should start planning my meals for all day, but it's not that easy when dad is control of dinner. Oh well, Here are my totals:

Calories: 2500, mabye 2700 max.
Protein: 160g, maybe a little more.
Fat: 40g maybe? I'm guessing on this one.
Carbs: 150 or so, wasn't really counting.

Obviously nutrition was not my greatest concern, but I'll work on that over time. I guess that's about it for the day. Next entry will be Thursday night. Any advice or comments are more than welcome.

Hey man...how old are you? What is your weight? What are your goals?

Maybe need to add some more food (solid food). Try eating some tuna for lunch. 1 can of tuna= about 33g protein take two of those to school.

I'm 18, 6'3 or so, maybe taller, and about 200 lbs. I eat a can of tuna 3-4 times a week, and according to that can it has 38 grams of protein. That's a great idea taking it to school. No more mysterious "chicken" nuggets! I'll probably eat one can at school and one at home, just because I don't have a lot of time to eat at school.

In terms of goals I'd like to hit 250 lbs by the end of summer 2006, and as a long term goal I'd like to get my big three to hit 1000 total. But at this point in time I'll be happy with progress in any form.

Very cool. Looks like youll need a ton more protein/calories to hit 250 though. From what Ive picked up around here you should be trying to get 1g to 1.5g of protein per pound of body weight. That means 200g of protein. Also, I think you need about 20xbody weight in cals. Maybe 25xbody weight. Its a good place to start. For you that means 5000cals at 25times.

It can be done. Cans of tuna. I go through 6 a week. 2 a day/MWF. Bananas, cheap, and about 100 cals per. Go through 3 a day. Maybe buy some protein. 100cals/20g of protein per serving on average. Or some Gainer...600cals/50g of protein.

Write it down...think about it. Planning is a big part.

Thanks man. 5000 calories... wow. That's twice as much as I'm used to eating. Good thing I love to eat. I'll probably start with 4000 and work my way up.

So, and this is open to anyone, how much fat / carbs should I be trying to consume?

I think fat is 1/2 of body weight...so 100g? I could be wrong. Right now eat away at the high protein foods, and def get enough cals. Right now my skinny ass eating more cals than your 200lbs! EAT MAN! :D

Today was legs, so here is how it went:

Sqauts: 125 lbs, 1 x 8;115 lbs, 1 x 8
Hack Squats: 125 lbs, 2 x 8
Leg Curls: 35 lbs, 2 x 8
Straight Legged Deadlifts: 125 lbs, 2 x 8
Standing Calve Raises: 125lbs, 2 x 20
Situps: 2 x 30

As far as food goes...
Calories: 3960 +
Protein: 252g +
Fat: 96g +
Carbos: 388 +

I think carbos look a little high, but I don't really know. I guess it doesn't matter too much since I'm bulking, but that number just seems a bit up there. Oh well.

The workout felt really good, but as with the chest muscles, I'm really looking forward to getting those numbers higher. All in good time. Looking forward to Saturdays arms workout.

Good leg day! I see the cals/protein are up, give it a few weeks and you'll see some changes.
