    I Bleed Orange. Here, I'll show you.

    Ok, well after dumping an entire cup of coffee and ruining my laptop, I finally have my desktop up and running and can start posting my workouts again. I'm just gonna scratch all records I was keeping and start a new journal, as a **** ton of... **** has gone down and it just straight up time to move forward in life at an unprecedented rate. So... here goes everything!

    I am currently a freshman at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I've been lifting for ~8 months and am fervently devoted to educated training and correcting myth and error.

    I'll be recording sessions from tomorrow on, as today is my day off. Below is my training regimen. Straight forward Westside template(Skinny bastard variation). I'm more devoted to powerlifting than I am bodybuilding. So... there.

    WS4SBIII
    ME Upper Body
    Flat DB Bench: (work up to 3xMax)
    Incline DB Bench*
    Bent Over DB Rows: (3x8)
    Dips: (3x12)
    BB Shrugs: (3x15)
    BB Curls: (3x8)

    DE Lower Body

    Box Squats/Racks***: (5x3)
    Platform Pulls: (5x3)
    BB Rows: (3x8)
    GHR: (3x8)
    Weighted Ab Work

    Upper Body Repetition
    Flat DB Bench: (4x12)
    Chin-ups: (3x8)**
    Face Pulls: (3x8)**
    One Arm DB Press: (3x10)
    DB Shrugs: (3x8)**
    Tricep Extensions: (3x12)**
    Hanging Abs

    ME Lower Body
    Deads/Squats***: (work up to 3xMax)
    Good Mornings: (3x8)
    Front Squats: (3x10)
    Pull Throughs: (3x8)
    Abs

    *(perform 2 sets of max reps.(Choose a weight you can perform for 15-20
    reps on the 1st set. Use the same weight for both sets and rest
    3-4 minutes between sets).

    **Superset one exercise from “Group 1” with one exercise from “Group
    2.”

    ***Alternate Box Squats and Rack Pulls on DE Lower; likewise, switch between Squats and Deads on ME Lower. Do so weekly.

    From Friday...

    UTK Session #2 - Lower
    -----------------------

    Squats:
    1x10 - 135
    1x2 - 225
    1x1.5 - 265(PR)
    1x5 - 225
    1x10 - 135
    BB Lunges:
    1x10 - 95
    1x10 - 115
    1x10 - 135

    1x10 - 340

    1x10 - 380
    1x10 - 400(stack)
    Standing Calf Raises:
    Can't remember numbers
    Harsh Ab Work

    Pretty good day. On the squat PR, the first attempt was sloppy so I didn't count it completely. The second rep, I managed to go down about 85-90%, so I count it Everything else went well, considering I cannot walk today as my calves are pretty much curled up and walking isn't an option at this point. Anyways, hit it again tomorrow!

    GOAL REACHED!

    ** = superset

    Long ass session. Lifting with my partner, Jared, who recently decided to also start a journal(http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=96460) and not be a btich. Followed him around at them kinda ****in around to waste time till he was done. Still, quality work here. A lil overwork every once in a while never killed anyone.

    Flat Bench is at the end cause I had to wait on him to get his DB work outta the way for a spot. Still, I did surprisingly well and I REALLY feel the progress comin along with my bench since I started this program. Finally, I don't feel hopeless about my bench being so stagnate.

    Just had a thought and thought I would post on it and see what feedback I get.

    Whenever I do Decline situps and other related ab work, The first thing to wear out is my hip flexors. Its really hampering my ability to do alot of ab work. Is this normal? I mean, is it just because of weak or lagging hip flexors or am I doing something wrong? If it is weak flexors, is there anything in particular I can do to strengthen them or speed the process of strengthening them? Thanks for the feedback.
