My name is Jordan, I live in Moberly, Missouri. I'm 19 years old and I've just recently stopped growing up, and enabled my body to .. well grow out (aka filling out). I've been spending the summer putting up tents for my grandparents business, it's required me to drive hundreds of stakes with a 16lb maul, as a result I've gained some weight and now I'm thirsty for more.
As of the last few years I weighed around 130-140lbs, and i'm 5'11. As you can imagine that makes me pretty skinny. I've been working hard the last few months, along with doing push ups, pull ups and bicycles and eating hearty. I now weight 150lb, and I want to weight more. I'm starting college next fall and I want to hit 200 by then!
My first step was to dig up an old rusty bench press from my grandparents back yard and sign up here. Now i've gotten a lot of good advice / feedback from my thread here.
My routine is this:
I'm going to eat hearty, with calories, and protein in mind. I'm taking a 25g protein shake along with at least 50g of carbohydrate (from yogurt, etc) 1 hour before workout, and the same 1 hour after workout.Monday:
Today is my first day lifting, and I'm going to post my numbers / weight here.
Since I'm new to lifting and I don't know the technique it was suggested I do 2x sets at 6 reps.
Please make as many suggestions / comments as you feel needed.
(Post with weight / weights soon to come)
(I'll post pictures on Monday as well)
