    Operation HUGE

    Alright, so I'm a big guy to start with. When I started training back in June '07 I weighed 334lbs, I'm now down to 295lbs. I just got back from a lazy vacation so I'm pumped to start training hard again.

    Long term goals:
    Weight: 210lbs
    BP: 315+
    DL: 405+
    Squat: 315+
    Total: 1035+

    This is where I'm at now, these are my personal records, but after a week long vacation, I'm sure I can't push these numbers.
    BP: 225
    DL: 295
    Squat: 225
    Total: 745

    These are what my days look like in the gym. I'm on a 5 day regimen. Monday-Friday, weekend is for rest.

    Monday: (back)

    Deadlift 5s x 3r
    Bent over rows 4s x 10r
    Upright row 4s x 10r
    Front Pulldown 4s x 10r

    Tuesday: (chest)
    Benchpress 4s x 10r
    Incline Benchpress 2s x 10r
    Pec Fly 3s x 10r
    Dumbell Pullover 4s x 10r

    Wednesday: (arms + easy day)
    BB Curls 4s x 10r
    Cable Curls 2s x 10r
    Skullcrushers 4s x 10r
    Reverse Curl 2s x 10r

    Thursday: (shoulders)
    Shoulder Press 4s x 10r
    Lateral Raise 3s x 10r
    Front Raise 3s x 10r
    Delt Fly 4s x 10r

    Friday: (legs)
    Squat 4s x 10r
    Leg Press 4s x 10r
    Seated Calf Press 4s x 10r
    Weighted Side Crunch 4s x 10r
    Crunch 4s x 10r

    Will be updating daily if I can make it to my PC.

    Good luck with the goals...they seem realistic and quite doable. How tall are you?

    Hey good luck man, but lifting weights 5 days a week may lead to over training. After your lifts start to stall I would suggest looking into a 3-4 day routine, especially if you are trying to lose weight.
