I have been a member on this board little over a year and i dont post much but i sure do read everything. Well i have been procrastinating in starting one of these for a long time partly because i felt that my lifts were not up to par with the others on here. I guess i feel better now with my numbers and i hope to get lots of advice with my routine.

As of now i am starting my second cut. On my first first bulk i gained a substantial amount of weight and soon after i cut for about 6 months. Just this past november i did a short and dirty bulk and gained about 10 pounds.Now its time to cut up.

This summer i will be graduating from college and beginning my quest in becoming a police officer, so im trying to keep on as much size as i can before i get into the police academy and run 10 miles a day.

Thanks in advance for the help and support everyone provides graciously.

The session went alright up until i did my last set of chins. i got a terrible pain in my elbow that is still bothering me right now. iced it but still nothing. As far as db snatches this was my first time doing them and they were fun as hell. I 've been doing the same routine for some time now and i needed to change things up to keep motivated. I think these snatches are just what i needed.

Pretty good workout today. I hit a new pr of 405 on dl so i'm really pumped about that. I want to go heavier on the GM's but i feel like if i go heavier my form will start to suffer for it. I gotta do these more often. Other than my weak Gm's i'd say today went well.

Not content with the workout, the push presses and bench felt super heavy today.I wanted to go for 185 with push presses but that wasn't happening. Well , i only got like 5 hours of sleep last night so i guess that could be the factor making this a poor workout. Definetly going to bed early today.

Felt really good today. Woke up, drank 1 cup of coffee, and hit up the gym. I was pressed for time as I had an appoinment with a college advisor about grad shool. Anyways, I was still really sore from Mondays workout so I took it easy today. I was pretty pumped about my PR with the snatches.:D

I know it sounds lame but this made my day:

This one guy came up to me after watching me do the snatches and he told me that he was going to do them next workout. He asked me to help him with his form and i did the best I could considering I'm new to them as well. It's the little things in life that bring great satisfaction.

things didnt go so well today. I made the mistake of going to the gym without eating any carbs , i just had some eggs and coffee and headed out. Needless to say after benching i was ready to go home.

I'm debating wheter to stick with a upper/lower split or try a fullbody. I did a fullbody last week but still not sure. Opinions?

Full body? Can you keep up intensity everyday doing a fullbody? I had a problem with mine I know that.

I actually workout Mon, Wed , Fri. This is my third week doing fullbody workouts and yeah it is tough. I got bored of doing body splits so I'm gonna go with this for a while till I get bored again. The only problem i'm having is deciding what reps to use.


After todays workout my friends and i got together and played soccer for about 2 hours. I AM EXHAUSTED!!

I met some guy in the gym today that i'm gonna start training with once a week. He was an olympic lifter in high school and college and has offered to teach me the lifts. We started with power cleans and to my suprise the dude said that my form was good. Explosive and I get under the bar on time. We then moved on to Db snatches and he threw up the 100's no problem great form and everything. I was able to throw up the 90's nicely. Next he introduced me to the power snatch. I practiced them with just the bar and they were pretty difficult. This one is gonna take me a few weeks to learn!

I just got back from vacation and suprisingly I only gained about a pound. It was well worth it man ! I actually weight about 198 right now.

As for any type of cardio I mainly just play basketball or soccer every now and then. I actually have been contemplating doing some crossfit routines. Cutting does suck , can't wait till i get the (overrated) six pack!!

Great day. Went into the gym with lots of energy , had a good pre- workout meal. Im starting my bulk today and I'm going to follow Twin peaks The Concept: Cycling 101 posted by Tom Mutaffis . I currently weight 204 and I wanna get up to at least 215-220 then cut back down to 200. Im still not sure what routine to follow. I wanna get the most out of this bulk!Hopefully all goes well.

Also, the gf wants to start working out as well. Any suggestions for a routine for a female that doesen't want to add too much muscle!? I 'll do a search in the mean time.
