Well, I stumbled across this site about 2 years ago and signed up one night and never came back, don't ask me why cuz I don't even know...but, I'm back now and I figured I'd maybe post this and see if some of you can hold me accountable. I seem to start working out and working out good, then I get to a point to where I plateau and I get really discouraged. I usually workout efficiently for about 2 months and then end up stopping due to lack of encouragement or lack of accomplishment. Right now I'm in school and I'm trying to work out as much as I can, but I try to work out with my roommates and they don't usually want to lift as many days as I want to, so I know I need to stop getting them to lift with me and just go for myself. I get discouraged when I don't see results and when I see much bigger guys in the weight room using less weight than I am doing the exact same thing and it's not a "bad form" issue. I dont know what the problem is. I've been trying to gain weight since high school, so obviously I'm doing something wrong since I'm 22 now. I weigh 166lbs and I'm about 6'2. So I'm made fun of for being a skinny guy more often than not. I hardly ever work out my lower body because its so weak, which I know should be more of a reason to work on it so I definitely will be starting this week.
Current Weight: 166
Current Bench Max: 250
Current Squat Max: Probably 225
Today I did bi's and this was my workout...
Barbell Curls Warmup: 1x10 50lbs
Barbell Curls: 3x8 80lbs
Dumbbell Curls: 3x8 35lbs
Dumbbell Hammer Curls: 2x8 35lbs, 1x8 45lbs
Cable Curls: 2x8 40lbs (pretty heavy for some reason)
Tried Something new- Barbell Curls: 5x2 100lbs, 3x2 110lbs
Dumbbell Curl Negatives: 1x8 25lbs, 1x8 35lbs
Is this a decent workout? I felt pretty pumped but I'm sure there are some things I could do that I didn't. I also did another workout but I don't know what to call it. It's on the cable machine, basically just doing a "front double bicep" pose with about 40lbs on the cable machine.
Here are some pictures...if they work. I've never posted pics before.
As you can see, it looks like I'm gettin back into shape, then I've lost it if you look at the most recent pictures.
Thanks for lookin, any advice would be appreciated!
