    the real Jay Cutler

    i decided to keep a journal to help me stay organized. I starting weight lifting sometime in June. I'm 22, 6'3'' and right now 195 lbs. I think i'm around 17% percent body fat. That's what one of those cheap scales said but I don't trust it. Back in May I weighed around 225 pounds. With diet, weight lifting, and lots of running, I got down to 195 where I haven't been in years. Anyways now, I am just trying to lower bodyfat while keeping muscle and gaining strength. I have gotten considerably stronger because this is the first time that I have actually been dedicated to weight training. I am going to start my own version of Starting Strength and then throw in some other things.

    Today I did rack pulls(couldn't do DL's im still nursing a bad hammy), assisted chins and ran 2 miles

    Rack Pull:
    45 X 8
    135X8
    135X8
    135X8

    Assisted Chins:
    3 X -6


    Stay tuned...(If you want)

    Really sore today... I'm way more sore by my shoulder blades than my lower back for some reason. Today is a light cardio day. I am shooting for 2 miles straight of running at 6.5 mph(don't laugh, I have never been an athletic kid - trying to get there though)

    As for diet, I try to eat something small with a lot of protein every few hours. Ever since I switched from eating 2 or 3 big meals a day to eating smaller meals more frequently I am way more hungry than I have ever been. It's amazing to actually see the metabolism at work.

    Currently reading Starting Strength. Good stuff. I am going to commit to this routine, and add a few other stuff like pull ups and skull crushers. I see that he has a Programming book out too. I'm kind of mad because I didn't see that before I bought this one. Anyone have that book too?

    Day1:
    Squat
    Bench
    Deadlift
    Skull Crushers

    Day2:
    Cardio

    Day3:
    Squat
    Military Press
    BB Rows/Pendlay Rows
    Chinups/Pullups
    Maybe some Bicep Curls(If I feel like it that day)

    Day4:
    Cardio

    Repeat

    Today:

    Bench:
    95X8
    115X6
    135X6
    125X6
    (I focused on touching my chest for all these sets, that's why the weight was down from last time.)

    Squat (Smith Machine since I was in a rush and the power racks were all full)
    45X6
    95X6
    95X6
    115X6

    I can tell already that these are going to improve a lot. I have never really squated before.

    Military Press:
    75X6
    85X6
    85X6
    85X6

    Assisted Dips:
    -7 x 10
    -6 X 8
    -5 X 8

    Day 1:

    Squat:
    3X5 115 lbs PR

    Bench:
    3X5 135 lbs

    Rack Pulls(I tried regular DL but my quads couldn't take it. I set the pins below the knee though):
    1X5 135 lbs
    1X5 155 lbs PR

    Dips:
    1X8 -7 resistance
    1X8 -5 resistance
    1X8 -4 resistance PR

    Great workout considering I think I am coming down with a cold. Took lots of Vitamin C today so we will see. I set some PR's, not much to brag about but I am happy with my progression so far.

    wow i haven't updated in a while...

    here is what I have done in about a month(still on Rippetoe's)

    Bench Press:
    125 to 155 30 lb increase

    Squat:
    115 to 185 70 lb increase

    Deadlift:
    135 to 245 110 lb increase

    Mil. Press:
    85 to 115 30 lb increase

    240 pounds total increase in about a month. Also about a 7 pound increase in bodyweight. I'm wondering how much of that is muscle vs. fat.
