First, I wont let guilt get to me this time and stop my journal. Previously I would feel guilty because people would read my journal and I barely have time to write in it much less visit other peoples. This caused alot of guilt so I just stopped writing in my journal. Anyways, I will tell you right now that I am sorry if I dont get into your journal to make any comments if you happen to say something in mine. If time permits, I will try, but work is pretty hectic so no promises.

Now for some stats:

5' 11" tall

Roughly between 14 and 16% bf (currently bulking)

****All measurements taken cold at least 12 hours after last workout****

10/20/06

Weight 254 pds.

Neck 18"

Chest 51"

Waist 36"

Thigh 29.5"

Calf 18.25"

Bicep 18"

Forearm 14.25" With arm straight and forearm flexed.

Current supps:

Amino Acids

Creatine

Fish Oil

Protein bars on occasion

Cardio = 15 minutes elliptical Monday--> Friday + 10 minutes stair climber on gym days.

Meals:

A whole lot of food. Pretty clean but with 2 kids sometimes my evening meals can get a little off track.

I will use this post to update stats, supps, food, etc as my journal grows.

I really started back full time at the beginning of October. Prior to that I was still going but not as often as I should have been. So I am just going to start my journal with October information.

Thanks,

Chris

Attaching some old pics just to have them here.

You are jacked, huge weights in here.

Serious business with all that heavy weight and low reps, good job.

Thanks Sidior and CoCoa.

I just got back from "vacation". I was only on vacation from work. I was out at our farm doing some work with the cattle, fence repairs, and built a firepit out of river rock and stone. Even though I didnt go to the gym, I did get alot of exercise since I had 1 ton of river rock and 2 tons of landscape stone and trim to move from trailer to firepit. It was nice to be away from work.

Still holding steady at 251 pds.
