    It's about time I started one of these. I am going to start taking the seriousness of my workouts to another level.

    SOME HISTORY

    I have always loved weight lifting ever since I was 12 years old. I started off just going into the gym and just doing whatever. It is not until I'd say 9 months ago I started lifting seriously.

    4/12/08-Saturday.

    Went on a nice easy 1.5 mile run. I could definitely feel the squats from yesterday.

    I was tempted to go and lift, but if this site has taught me anything its that rest time and meal time are as important as gym time.

    Thanks, I really look forward to squatting now! I used to despise squats.

    I feel nice & rested up.

    Went to the gym today. Shot some hoops, did a little jump roping and went swimming for a lil bit. Ready for the Iron tomorrow. Bring it on!

    Also picked up some cottage cheese.

    04/17/08-Thursday- Upperbody

    Bench
    Warm-up 135x5, Slow reps
    180x8
    210x6
    235x4
    265x2 Tied my PR but it felt harder
    Chains 3x8@135lbs With stalls at each rep.

    DB INCLINE
    75lbs(each) 3x8

    Pylo-Pushups
    3x10

    Attacker press
    3x8@225lbs

    Upright rows
    1x10@90lbs-Hard!
    2x8@90lbs-Felt better

    Jumprope- Half hour


    THOUGHTS

    I am overall content with my training. However, bench is pissing me off! If I don't get 270x2 on Monday then I'm going to switch things up, a lot, bench wise. My gains seem to be slowest on the bench.

    4/21/08- Upper-Body

    I was really hard on my body this weekend. Not the best of sleep and diet and I was out all night long. My lifts show it.

    BENCH

    190x8-Hard!
    215x6-Hard!
    230x4-Harder then it should have been
    245x2- I should be able to do this x5 but im just so weak today ahhh!

    DB Incline
    70(each)3x8-Easy but I went 5lbs lighter today.

    Pylo-Pushups
    3x10

    Upright Rows
    3x8@90lbs-Feels like I have gained some strength

    BENCH-CHAINS

    I am really really discouraged about my bench today. I am still beating myself up about it. My friend told me not to worry about it to much, and that ill be back to my usual self on Thursday. I hope he's right.

    I've definitely caught up with myself on squats. No more of this 30lb gain in 20 days.. However, I still see myself at 420 by August. I sure will have to push hard though.
