    Superman's Journal from 155 to 200 lbs (PICS BELOW!)

    Pictures now on pages 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16...
    Videos now on pages 8, 9, 12, 13, 14...

    After seeing other people's journal, I felt like creating one of my own. I know of other people that want to be 200 lbs also so I think this will help those that want to reach 200 lbs but feel it is just too far of a goal to reach. A quick background is that this journal will last up until I reach 200 lbs (which I know I can because I bring 1,000,000 % of dedication for whatever I do. I also have no fear of death as I am willing to go all the way if I have to in order to achieve my goal of reaching 200 lbs by December 31st, 2006 at 11:59 pm.

    I officially started my goal July 1, 2006 and have noticed great progress. I first started the 3 Day Mass Exercise Routine that I found on another site. I thought it was good because I only needed to go to the gym 3 times a week for 30 minutes a day.

    Doing this routine along with eating lots of food, averaging 1 weightgainer drink a day, and taking creatine, I have seen great gains. I started at 155 lbs in July and I am now 175 + or - 1 lbs.

    Starting Strength/Body/Endurance Measurements in July 2006:

    -Bench = ~145-150 lbs
    -Chest Press Machine = ~130-140 lbs
    -Squat = 45 lbs (Never squatted before)
    -Deadlift = 45 lbs (Never deadlifted before)
    -Leg Press = 140 lbs
    -Leg Curls = 70-80 lbs
    -Military Press = ~70 lbs
    -DB Pullover = 45 lbs
    -Front/Back Pulldown = ~100 lbs
    -DB Curls = 45 lbs
    -EZ Bar Curl = 105 lbs
    -DB Hammer Curls = ~40 lbs
    -Tricep Pulldown = ~60 lbs (machine vary)
    -BF% = 12.2% (machine calculated)
    -Fastest Mile = ~6:15


    I will start the WBB#1 tomorrow and will make Sat, Tues, and Thursday my days to work out.

    I hope I can do it!

    Below is pretty much how big I was when this started. My arms were skinny and I was pretty weak even though I played basketball regularly.

    UPDATE: The 2nd picture is recently added as of 12-14-06. It is taken actually a little more recent than the first. As you can see I had little build if any at all. You can better see in proportion how my face, neck, arms, shoulders, and chest were at the beginning of my log.

    09-16-06 to 09-20-06

    Been working a lot lately and busy with meetings. However, the weight keeps going up especially since I started squating and working more with free weights.

    Weighed myself raw today and was 179 lbs! I am increasing my weight at a phenomenal pace!

    Here is what I've been eating so far average per day this week:

    Meal 1: Eggs, sausage, hash brown, milk
    Meal 2: Pure Protein Bar
    Meal 3: 0.5 lb of Meat Loaf, Fried rice with peanuts, water
    Meal 4: Fast food of some type, usually eat chicken, I stay away from beef
    Meal 5: Beef sirloin and noodles with weight gainer shake

    Been doing WBB #1 still. I am currently happy and I can see my goal clearer than ever!

    My thighs are still sore from squatting hard on Monday. I am gaining weight so well, I don't know how far I will go before I start cutting!

    Today I am working out. I am going to do Day 1 of WBB #1. Hopefully I set new records at the gym today. I will be resting my thighs until at least tomorrow.

    Slept 11 straight hours last night and my legs aren't sore anymore. Some major muscle building occurred though because I feel super strong. I also lost some meals due to sleeping but it isn't too bad. I weighed myself and I am still on pace.

    For breakfast I decided to punish myself for not following strict diet orders:

    -4 eggs (egg beater variety) (~300 calories)
    -4 slices of French Toast (Aunt Jemima) (960 calories)
    -1 glass of weightgainer with whole milk (~850 calories)
    -5 grams of creatine
    -1 bottle of water

    2000+ calories later, I am ready to dominate the gym and the rest of my meals today!!!

    09-25-2006 to 10-02-06

    Been eating, eating, and eating like a monster!

    I also switched out of WBB #1. It seems like a great routine on paper, but after talking with other members and thinking it over of what my body is capable of, I felt it was a waste of time and I was losing progress.

    I created my own workout based on a 3 Day Mass Full Body Workout. Will post routine soon.

    I have broken the 180 lbs barrier and currently I am 182 lbs raw.

    I have also started doing deadlifts now.

    My big 3 are 205 lbs bench, 135 lbs squat, 135 lbs dead.

    Back to eating...

    All I can say is that I am glad I started Deadlifting. I am now a believer in that the deadlift is the best bulking exercise you can ever do. My bowling average has soared through the roof. The past 2 weeks I have averaged nearly 210. I have bowled in the 200's 5 of the last 6 games and the other bowlers don't know what is going on.

    I gotta post some pics soon so you guys can give me tips on how to get ripped!

    I have been eating whatever I can during work hours now to compensate for the feeling of fullness. I am at a point of no return now. Whenever the scale reads a lb lighter than before I go crazy.

    I hit the gym today and improved my deadlift by 10 lbs!!! I must be genetically gifted or something. I am making huge progress. This summer I could only bench 135 lbs! Now I am hitting 200+ lbs! My squat still sucks as I think I have a slight knee injury to my left knee. I will keep squating until it gets worse though.

    To this date: Bench: 205 lbs, Squat: 135 lbs, Dead: 145 lbs!!!

    Been eating good and still gaining. Still need to put pics up.

    Went to gym yesterday and set new records!

    Finally was able to use a leg press machine (not squatting for 1 week to rest my knee) with more weight than 200 lb max that is at my apt. I did 290 lbs pretty easily.

    I also increased my deadlift another 20 lbs to 165 lbs!

    Well I am definitely increasing and not slowing down. I am a mutant I think. Below are personal bests done during this period of time:

    -Leg Press went from 290 lbs to 350 lbs X 10
    -Chest Press Machine near apt (started at 130 lbs in July) has now been maxed out at 200 lbs X 3. It has terrible friction and not adjusted for my size because I can bench more than this.
    -Pull Down 120 lbs to 130 lbs
    -Deadlift from 165 lbs to 175 lbs X 8

    -For food, same as usual --> eat until I almost puke.

    I am clearly unstoppable now. I am hitting all the right steps. Slow but definitely steady progress. Hopefully I can post some pics this week.

    Keep up the good work. Also, stick with the bowling. I used to bowl back in the day as well. I was about six when I started (I didnt even want to try it out, but my dad loved it) and stopped when I was 13-14ish. It has now been about 8-9 years since I've been out of it and unfortunately no 300's for me. A couple 279's and a 299 in which I left the 7 pin. Oh man the good ole days.

    Good luck man!

    Edit: Just to give you a point of reference I started lifting when I was about 120lbs. So dont let your friends discourage you. I was literally bench pressing the bar alone.

    How you know I bowled? HAHA. Well I do and hopefully I can bowl a 300 tonight. I was close last week with a 243 and 246. Don't let the scores fool you, I had 9 strikes both games and then screwed it all up. Especially the 246, I got a 10 pin in the 10th frame. I hate 10 pins so I just said "F*** it" and bowled it down the middle and left. We were already losing by over 100 pins so I could of had a 300 and still lost.

    Yeah I wish I started this in college. I tried several times but studying and my 2 broken ankles set me back big time. I should be 200+ by now and ripped ridiculously. Our gym in college was state of the art since we were a top 10 football program.

    It's a great feeling, I know. People who hadn't seen me in a long while were dumbfounded. Instead of being called skinny, now people call me "big guy". Amazing what enough food and dedication can do for you.

    Thanks. I gotta find a way to post a front or back view of my lats. To me they are my best progress so far. They spread out pretty cool and I think they got bigger after doing deadlifts.

    My six-pack is gone temporarily though. So I will try to not post pics of just my stomach HAHA.
