Hey first journal here on WBB so here goes some background information.
Im 6'2 215 and 23 years old. I've been lifting for almost a year but my diet has not been on track during this time. I am hoping to get a steady clean diet going and cut to about 190 and decide where to go from there.

My current maxes are:

Bench Press: I rep 65 pound dumbells and I don't know what I would max barbell bench
Deadlift: 345
Squat: 225

the routine I run is as follows:
Day 1: back/shoulders
Day 2: legs/abs
Day 3: arms/chest
back to day 1

today was legs and abs and this was my workout:

135 x 7
185 x 4,4,3

Hyper Extensions
+45 x 8,8,8

Calf Raises
400 x 8,8,8

35s x 5 each leg, 5 each leg

Knee Raises

I was going to do some SLDLs and decline crunches but didnt want to wait for the equipment for the SLDLs and there were people in the room with the decline bench and I am a self conscious about doing excersises that I am not sure I am doing correctly

sounds like you're doing a lot and should see results quickly...

i noticed you're 23 (which tends to be the partying age) are you a heavy drinker as beer can seriously cause weight gain..

nice job on the chest work.. do you usually bring a notebook with you to the gym? I get a really small spiral notebook (index card sized) and write out my workouts so that I can look back in that while I'm in the gym and need to know what weight I should go with.

Seeing you rise up on your DB bench and curls is sweet, keep it up.

Also ran for a bit on the treadmill. Its been a while since I have been on a treadmill and it took some getting used to. I plan on using it more though as it gives me a way to measure distance and time.

05-17-2007, 05:48 AM
Good effort overall man.

05-17-2007, 01:34 PM
solid DL's man, too bad on the PR miss though.. I never could get used to treadmills, I like the real thing too much. If you need a way to measure distance, check out this site: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/
I found it on the crossfit forums and it allows you to map out runs along roads. Really useful tool and you can use a watch to time yourself.

offhegoes - the thing i dont like about treadmills right now is im constantly worrying that i am going to fall off its like theres a tv right in front of me but i cant watch it cause im constantly looking at my feet to make sure im within the treadmil haha

leg work from Thursday
decided to go light on the legs as i had planned to run after the workout. then near the end of the workout decided not to run haha. also forgot to do abs so i did some crunches on Friday after my run.

Machine Calf Raises
