So I've finally decided to make one of these. I've been on just about every damn program out there but I've only given about 2 of them a shot (3+ months). I change programs all the time because of one thing I don't like, or another program that I read up on that's the BeSTesT ProGrAm OuT tHEre that'll get you HYYYOOOGGEE!!1!! From bodybuilding routines, to strength training routines, you name them, I've probably done them...or something similar to it.
It's time to settle down on, none other than westside. My bands have arrived, I just finished making some boards for myself from 1-5. I've always been very small and very weak. I graduated high school at 128 lbs @ 5'9". I'm now 21, 170 lbs @ 5'9". My goals as of now and always have been about size and aesthetics. I want to be as large, as lean and proportioned as possible. Hopefully step on stage as well. But who knows, I love training in the lower rep ranges with much heavier poundages and may be stepping on a platform. Either way, I want to compete at some point.
My strength has really plateaued in the past year using bodybuilding routines. Come to think of it, my physique has too. This I can blame on lack of control over diet, and not being able to make consistant PR's. But my dedication and commitment have always been something to be proud of. So I've decided to start training solely for strength and bring it right up so down the road, it will be much easier to put on some good quality mass when I start training in higher rep ranges and my CNS is better developed. And I'm sure through this journey I'll be able to put on some quality mass as well, especially considering how strict my diet is now. I've just started tracking everything I eat and shooting for a gain of 1 lb/week and so far, it's been a success. Hopefully the majority of it has been muscle mass. As pathetic as my total is now, I've come a long way. Right now it's sitting at about 780 lbs.
So, let's get this show on the road.
