I'm starting up again, after a long hiatus for some health issues and sheer laziness. Now that the health issues have been cleared up, I just have to contend with the laziness. Anyways, I'll be using this thread primarily to just help track my own progress and share it with anyone who cares to read it. I'm far from an expert so feel free to offer advice or critiques.
I'm currently 24 and have been lifting on and off for maybe 6 years, I've made good gains in strength at times, but never have been able to build up the mass I've wanted. I'm doing this to build mass, but also for strength. I'm just not as concerned since I've always made decent gains in strength, solong as I hit the gym and did a decent diet.
I have access to a decent but tiny apt gym with racks, cages, free weights, benches etc. I'm fairly set on a 3 day split, and will be posting my work out and maybe some of my diet. Here goes nothing:
Flat DB Bench: 3x8 @50lb, 1x8 @55lb
Dips (BW): x7, x6, x7, x6
Flat DB Fly: 3x8 @20, 1x8 @25
Skullcrushers: 1x8 @55, 3x10 @55
Tricep Cable Pulldown: 2x10 @80, 2x10 @90
Tricep Dips w/ bench: 4x10
Current weight: 202lb, 6'2"
Crammed as much food as could for breakfast, 1 cup of dry oats, 2 eggs, and 1 cup of condensed milk mixed with water (will normally mix with fat free milk). I am planning on having this or a similar breakfast most morning just out of concerns for costs. I'm not poor but I need all the money I can get haha. Planning on eating chicken breast, yoghurt and the like for lunch. Dinner will be trickier since I live with my gf, and she leads me into sin. At least food-wise.
I have a lot of goals, some of the ones I'll list:
Fill out a Large-size shirt, not looking thin.
Have thicker legs and squat/deadlift a respectable 300lb or higher.
Be able to do 4x10 chin-ups.
Have a wider back, better lats.
Thicker arms, but not a priority (figure this will come with other lifts).
Get back to benching 225 for reps.
