July 16th, 2007

I've been reading this website on and off for little over two months while trying to achieve something that everyone wants. Muscle, Mass, and Strength. Today, I finally got around to writing a journal and yes, I have never posted before. I always just researched what I needed and took other peoples advice on what to do if a thread of an article caught my attention. Any question I had always seemed to be there. Now it's time to create something I can look back on and gauge my progress.

I've been weightlifting now for just about six months, this month will be the seventh and I’ve never really had any major goals other then to gain weight as I was 5'7 and weighted 132 lbs. I was extremely light, in fact my gf who is 5'1.5 and 103 lbs looked bigger then me. Scary thought. So I figured I would start weightlifting to become, larger? than my gf (who as I mentioned before is ridiculously small....) Soon I began to see changes and I became addicted to watching my body change. After 6 month's I'm up to 157 lbs at 5'7 and finally decided to stop my old routine, which I had been doing for just about 4 months, with in the next two days (Resting from my last body draining workout) to start the WBB 1.1 routine.

Calories:
3100-3500 Daily: 150+ g’s of protein ( I don’t know carbs or fat, but fat’s are low)
Bf%: No ideas

Supplements:
Protein, Fish oil, Daily Vitamins, Creatine

Goals:
I have no current on RM , In fact I’ve never had any specific goal to lead to failure or being upset other then to grow and become what I was not and so far that’s worked. I know everyone else has set records on how much weight, but I feel if you train hard and eat right with limitless goals there will never be disappointment. The one goal I have now is to incorporate legs into the workout process including deadlifts and squats which I have never done before. I tried a deadlift with semi success and after reading an article debating why you should and should deadlift/squat and coming to the conclusion the body grows as a whole, I decided it would be beyond good to add these into the routine, hence why I’m starting WBB 1.1

Wednesday:
On Wednesday after two days of rest to start fresh, I will be starting my first day of WBB 1.1

Any advice and comments are welcome :zipit:

Woke up, it's now - Wednesday. I feel a lot better from yesterday, gave my self a day to rest. Did some math yesterday for the foods I ate.


Calories:
2x Packets of Oatmeal - 260 cals
3x eggs ( 2 egg whites 1 yolk) - 109 cals
Protein Shake - 220 cals
2x Oats and Honey Bar- 280 cals
6x tbs peanut butter - 540 cals
Protein Shake - 220 cals
2x oranges - 160 cals
Glass of grapefruit juice- 90 cals
Granola Bar - 190 cals
2 serving Cottage Cheese- 220 cals
Ramen Soup ( There was no other food in the house ) - 290

Total: 2579 calories- Give or take- Probably around 150-170 g's of protein.

Today I'm feeling pretty well, I took a full day to recover so I can give WBB 1.1 my full effort. After I stretch this morning and work out a few of the kinks it will be time for my first day. :D

Routine:
Front Squat/Back Squat 6x8
Alternating Lunges 6x8
Good Mornings 6x8
Standing Calve Raises 6x8
Diagonal Cable Wood Chops 6x8
Planks

I'll post more when I get back from the gym. My lower back doesnt ache any more but we will see. :bash:

Hello 20 hours of sleep and lots and lots of food. I also tried to shove about 1k calories down my throat this morning, I'm a small kid, 5'5 1/2 and I couldnt fit it all down :bang: :bang: :bang:. I get free food at work, so I guess i'm going to pig out there. Lucky, it's made by a bunch of chefs and it's high quality, non of that unhealthy stuff. So looking forward to tomorrow but even more to the day after, first day of deadlifts.

Off day today. Going to take it easy. No running around for stupid crap or busting my a** at work. Going to head to the gym today and just do alittle bit of cardio to help burn off BF%, i'm talking low intensity. I'm also trying to just as much food as I possibly can down my throat, but it's not easy. At some point my body just wont let anything else down. At least with oatmeal:confused: :confused:

Today: Off Day

Gym:

I'll probably end up doing 30 min to an hour of really low intensity eliptical or something. Keep my heartrate around 120 to burn stored fat instead of muscle
Weight gain has offically slowed down. I decided I wasn't going to bulk in the beginning and just do it the hard way and to just slowly pack on lean muscle mass. As id my entire body is sore. Running today should losen up and strench everything so by tomorrow I'll be ready for more squats.

Food:
The only thing I do more then sleep and that's upwards of 12 hours ( after a 10 hour day at work dealing with people and busting my a** and a intense weight lifting session) is eat. I eat al day every day except it's health food which kinda sucks. These things include

All types of lean meats, oatmeal, fresh fruit, soy milks, whole wheat cereal, naturl peanut butter, etc.

Gym:
Cardio
30-60 min extremely low intensity. Target heart rate 115-125

Note: I get the impression no one likes cardio because at high heart rates, the body cant metabolize fat and it start to burn muscle instead. Also, for all the people who bulk it's almost counter active. But, I believe that while just putting on lean muscle mass, cardio on off days helps? This is my impression :rolleyes: someone let me know if I’m wrong, other wise I’m just going to keep hitting it hard on my workout days and doing low intensity cardio on my off days.

Note:
Today was a killer workout. I drank at least 5 bottles of water and was drenched the entire time. The dead lifts were amazing. They were bogus but my form was good, and my lower back feels sooo good. I know I could do more, but I want to take it slow, not kill my back and develop my muscles and my form, not to mention my legs aren’t where they should be so I'm still working to catch those up with the rest of my body. Decided to do some shrugs today, haven't done those since I started WBB 1.1, felt really good. Shrugs are probably my favorite exercise, I have no idea why. I can't wait for tomorrow for upper body then back home to a decent gym, thank god. I also stepped on the scale today, said 160 but I had some heavy sweat pants on so I'm thinking i'm about 156 now. It's slow but it's going.

Made the exercise more enjoyable. Overall the workout killed me and tomorrows my off day! Time to raid the fridge, one of the best perks of being home.

Over all it was a good workout, I'm seeing progress and it's not that slow and my strength is slowly going up but I hate waiting. I'm not bulking like most people on this site are; I'm going with the slow and steady LBM since I'm going more for looks then pr's. I guess my goal is a great physique. It's just discouraging when the scale never goes up even though it has. I'm just looking for instant results, which we all know doesn’t happen. :mad: . I guess the best way to do it is to just train hard like we all do and avoid the scale for a few months. That's what I did last time. Oh well, again over all a great day.

Completely forgot curls today, no idea why. Bench was awesome, it felt so good. I didn't even know I could do 155x12, the last few times I struggled to get 8 ( plus I was nervous since I had no spotter ). I was alitte pissed off at the scale, it said 152 today. My gym use to have one that you stepped on with aneedle, this one is digital. It's amazing what and extra 3 reps can do in an exercise. Also, my gym had free pizza today, took all the strenght I had to not eat it lol. Anyways, I'm completely dead from the past two days and tomorrow is a well deserved rest day, hell yeah. :whiner: :hump:

Over all it was a good workout, still pushing for those numbers but definitly working my lower day harder. Those deadlifts are addicting no matter what form they're in.

It's time for the hard hard work. I achieved my deads goal yesterday, that was exciting, I had 2 people pushing me to go for it, so I shut up and did it. Next time, after squating 185x8 twice, I feel I can get my 200 x8 for squats. Maybe ill hit that goal too. Can't wait for sunday.

Note: Finally got 175x8, I've been trying for this for god knows how many weeks, 165 x8 came really easy compaired to normal today and when I put up 175 for 8 I was stooked. My shoulders were sore from pushing military press extremely hard last time so I went light but trust me, it was still hard. My back feel sbetter today, I got enough rest and streched it continuously. Sould be back to normal by saturday. My routine has turned into more of a push pull split which isn't terrible, classes are starting and I work out with 2 other people so it's hard to do it but we manage! WE"RE all very determined to make the gym on our gym days.

Herandi: I would love to try BGB, I've read over it numerous times, it's hard just trying to coordinate it with 2 other people , one being pbal17 who's stuborn. so we just kind of created our own 2 day split which is more or less push day and pull day. I think we are going to work with that for a month then see where that puts us. We're both out of the nub gains so it's just hard work from here on out!

Was more of a get all the reps in day then a ME, was nice. Tomorrow, 315 DL :evillaugh:

Havent posted in a while though i am still working out consistantly it's extremely hard to keep a journal though with all the **** going on in my life. It is nice to keep track of progress though. 235 for one was awesome since i hit 225 3 weeks ago. Can't wait until im repping out 225 for 5 and 10. I'm not strong by any means but for my body weight i think i'm doing alright.
