    i have a long road ahead of me .......

    hey everyone . im three months into my power / strength based routine , and the only question i keep asking myself is .....why didnt i start this 8 years ago when i was 20 and better looking ? im hoping if i keep this journal , i can stay more focused and get some critiques / feedback .

    sunday - upper body

    flat bench press :
    175 pounds - 5 reps
    190 pounds - 5 reps
    205 pounds - 3 reps
    220 pounds - 3 reps
    235 pounds - 1 reps
    250 pounds - 1 reps = p.r.

    neutral grip ( palms in ) flat dumbbell bench press :
    45's - 20 reps
    65's - 20 reps

    tricep pushdowns :
    75 pounds - 13 reps
    60 pounds - 10 reps

    does cardio slow down size? I've been running 5 days a week while i lift and while for all intents and purposes i've only been lifting for 2 months my size has doubled in certain departments. I would imagine the running would lean you out and your size would be more related to muscle volume instead of water volume, just speculation, but I say do what the wrath says, don't worry about number, worry about the mirror and symmetry, if you do it right size will come. sorry i have to go im procrastinating i must study for my thermo final. ciao.
    My journal
    Goal(Current):
    400(335) Bench Press
    600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
    500(495x1) ATG Squat
    Total: 1500(1350)
    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.

    i guess it depends on the person . i was deployed to afghanistan for 16 months and because of the job i was doing , i was able to lift hard , eat hard , and did virtually no cardio . i gained 36 pounds over the course of that 16 months . i have been back from deployment almost 6 months , and in that time i have gained only 7 pounds . i still lift hard and eat hard , but in that six months time frame , my cardio / military exercises are done 4 - 5 days a week . i cant speak for everyone else , but yes , cardio does effect me in the growth department .
