Hey, I'm starting a new journal. I moved to a new place, and now i have access to an actual gym with lots of fancy equipment. I am going to use the WBB routine #1 and im going to do my best to stay on track!

Here's the current stats so we all know where i started!

Age: 22
Weight: 145lbs
Height: 5'11"

im really stoked about starting this routine. I used to just work out until my muscles gave up, and didnt record the sets/reps/weights.. so this is going to be pretty cool to record them and see the reps/weights increase each week.

wish me luck!

Just got back from my first wbb#1 workout. it was great! at the end of the workout i was pretty much exhausted at the perfect time. A few of the moves took a little figuring out to get the right amount of weight, but i think i found the right weights for each move to be able to do 6-8 reps. Here it is:

note: weight of barbell not included, i think its about 25lbs.

Benchpress
80 x 7 x 2
Incline DB benchpress
40's x 7 x 2
Dips
Bodyweight x 8 x 2
Chinups
Bodyweight x 5 x 2
Deadlifts
90 x 7 x 2
1 arm DB rows
35's x 10 x 2
Shrugs
50's x 10 x 1
Crunches
incline #4 x 10 x 2

How is the diet?

Its pretty good. I dont drink anything with caffiene, no pop, no chocolate. havent had icecream in ages. I mostly eat meat like fish and hamburgers on my forman grill. I like eggs too. i drink milk or orange juice mainly when im thirsty. Sometime i'll eat a fastfood burger, but not very often. I like pasta and rice alot, and lots of salads. I drink a protien shake after workouts.

I dunno, my diet is pretty good, i try to stick to real foods. i think a few more calories each day would probably help tho.

I think most barbells weigh 45lbs.

Nice workout, do you track on fitday?

no i dont use fitday... i eat little things throughout the day so often it would be a real chore to write it all down and figure out how much it was all worth.. i might just be being lazy, and maybe its something i should consider doing. thanks for the tip.

u say the bar is 45 eh? sounds good to me. so that means i was benchpressing 125 total. sounds good. i think my 1rm for bench is around 155.

just got back from my workout today. Went pretty good, too many people in the gym tho, kinda bugged me. not enough mirrors.

Seated DB shoulderpress
35's x 5 x 3
Lateral Raises
15's x 8 x 3
Standing DB row
30's x 8 x 2
Narrow grip benchpress
70 x 8 x 2
Cable pushdowns (triceps)
110 setting x 8 x 3
DB curls
35's x 8 x 2
Hammer curls
35's x 8 x 1
Crunches
incline #4 x 10 x 2

the workout went well. my shoulderpress is weak, but i have a chronic shoulder injury and need to be careful with that move.

Looks like you had a pretty full on session there! Tracking your diet is a really good idea, just even for one day. If you find yourself eating the same meals everyday it works out very easy, I'm in need of doing it myself.

workout today was pretty good.

DB squats
50's x 8 x 3
Leg curls
30 x 8 x 3
SLDLs
70 x 8 x 2
Calf raises
35'sx10x4
crunches
incline #4 x 10 x 2
DB squats

havent posted in a while. My shoulder has recovered and i have worked out a few more times since then. I was feeling extremely weak today.. dunno whats up with me.

Todays workout went something like this:

Dips x 12,10,8,8
Hammer strength machine 70lbs x 8,7,6,6,5
Incline dumbell press 25's x 8,8,8,8
seated DB curls on incline bench 25's x 10,8,8,8
flat DB fly's 35's x 8,8,8,8,8
Incline situps x 15,10,10
Leg lift things for abs x 20,20

basically just kept doing sets until failure. Shoulders and abs are tired. Tomorow i'll do my back and maybe legs.
