    Bulldog's Workout Log

    Hey Guys,

    My first post here and thought I'd say hello. I'm 29, and actually started going to the gym for the first time in my life about 14 months ago. Throughout sports in the past, I always half-assed it weight lifting. I've finally settled in a good routine, but still unsure about final goals.

    1/3 of me wants to get into Boxing. 1/3 of me wants to learn shot put and get more powerful. 1/3 of me wants to gain strength, shed fat, and go to a pro wrestling school. Until then, I'm just hitting it hard to get bigger, faster, and stronger.

    Current Workout Plan :

    Monday : Chest / Triceps
    - Bench Press (Alternating weeks with BB and DB)
    - Bench Press Machine
    - Cable Crossovers
    - DB Pec Flyes
    - Tricep Pushdowns
    - Skull Crushers
    - Dips (Bench or Body)
    - Tricep Kickbacks

    Tuesday : Heavy Legs
    - BB Squats
    - Good Mornings
    - Leg Extensions
    - Leg Curls
    - Squat Machine
    - Hip Adductors
    - Hip Abductors
    - Calf Press

    Wednesday : Rest / Cardio
    - Treadmill sprints

    Thursday : Back / Biceps
    - Deadlift
    - WG Pulldowns
    - CG Pulldowns
    - Seated DB Curls
    - EZ Bar Curls
    - One Arm DB Rows
    - Incline DB Curls / Inverted DB Curls (Not sure what these are really called)
    - Hammer Curls

    Friday : Light Legs
    - Squat Machine
    - Leg Curls
    - Leg Extensions
    - Leg Curls
    - Hip Adductors
    - Hip Abductors
    - Squat Machine Jumps
    - Calf Press
    Saturday : Shoulders / Triceps / Biceps
    - Shoulder Press
    - Seated DB Curls
    - Tricep Pushdowns
    - Lateral Raise
    - Hammer Curls
    - Skullcrushers
    - Front Raise
    - EZ Bar Curls
    - Tricep Kickbacks

    Sunday : Rest / Cardio
    Treadmill Sprints


    I'm coming off of both a meniscus tear in the left knee and 6 days of straight lifting which lead to some heavy fatigue.

    Day 0 - Rest Day.
