Well... this is my first journal so i guess ill just start out with a little background information. My name is Louie, i'm 18, 5'8'' and my weight is currently 175 lbs. Ive been lifting since about 16 but never really got into a serious lifting schedule, but now that i'm at college i want to get in better shape. I'm currently doing "Baby Got Back" My goals are to overall become a healthier person, gain weight, and improve my overall impedance. As far as my diet goes i'm a healthy eater but often find my self having a hard time eating enough due to college, and my schedule. Another problem for me is i broke my wrist in a couple years ago racing motocross and its never really been as strong as it use to be. The only lift that my wrist really bothers me is benching. So any workouts or idea to help strengthen my wrist would be useful.
Rack Pulls 5x5 110,130,150,170,205
Bent-over rows 3x8 135, 140, 140
Cable seated rows 3x10 70, 90, 90
Flat Bench 5x5 110, 130, 130, 130, 125
Incline Dumbbell press 3x8 35, 40, 45
Dumbbell Pullovers 3x10 35, 40, 45
Standing calf raises 3x10 75,87.5, 100
Crunches 3x10 10,10,10
As far the weight i'm lifting i wasn't really sure what to start out at and what not so this week is more just to see what i can lift then next week i will be able to get some more accurate numbers up
As far as supplements go ive just been using Nitrean, fish oil, and vitamins.

Welcome Lou. Welcome to the journals, I wish you the best of luck on getting big, I am about your weight and trying to do the same. I notice you don't have any goals in there so I wanted to ask what you wanted to push for?
My goals are to overall become a healthier person, gain weight, and improve my overall appearance.
well today went good besides the fact that it seemed like everyone was doing curls on the squat rack so i was crunched for time so i just had to use the hack squat machine.
*note sure how much the machine it self weighs so that is just weight of the plates
.5 mile fast paced mile walk
.5 mile run
1 mile on ski machine
today was my day off but i had yoga class, felt good to get a long stretch in then went to the gym for a little bit and did some light running
wasn't able to make it to the gym today due to studying for a physics test tomorrow
