Hey everyone my name is Will and I'm 22, 5'7, and with shoes/shorts/shirt (workout clothes) I'm 165.5lb
Been reading this site for a few days now and really REALLY interested.
I wrestled from 8th-12th grade in HS and worked out moderately (Was 135lb weight class so never bulked or anything like that) Graduated in 2004 and didn't really do much of anything since then. I decided around Christmas 2007 that I wanted to start working out and try to get into shape. I worked with dumbells at work since then and then found this site.
So I worked out yesterday a bit at work with the dumbells they have, and then took someone's advice from here and got a gym membership today and worked out there.
This is what it looked like yesterday:
1x5 DB curl (25lb)
1x5 DB military press (25lb)
1x10 DB curl (20lb)
1x10 DB military press (20lb)
1x12 DB Press (flat) (30lb)
Pretty light, but whatever.
So after reading more and getting my gym membership I did this today:
6x5 Squat (115lb)
6x5 Bench (115lb)
Was going to do Dead lift as well but wasn't confident in my form & didn't want to hurt my back. I'm going to have the guy help me with it Monday when I go again. Planning to work out Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday.
After those sets I didn't want to be done so I did some easy stuff:
3x10 Tricep Push down (with the cable deal) (80lb)
2x10 Leg Press (where you're laying back or w/e) (90lb)
For cardio I took it easy with 10 minutes of jumping rope. I'm really out of shape where cardio is concerned so that's going to be tough for me.
So I'm open to advice and such, seems like a good community here. The workout I wanted to do was Rippetoe, but since I didn't know how to do Dead lift I just did more of the others. Also had never done a squat before today.
Also here are some "before" pictures for the start of my journey:
Here's links to more for those interested, wasn't real sure what all to take pictures of, but I tried hard:
So there it is, my first journal post, and the first step on a long road to becoming... un-scrawny
