    Diet:

    my current diet consists of:

    4000 calories
    400g of carbs
    300g of protein
    133g of fat
    8 liters of water

    basic 40-30-30 breakdown.

    Training:

    monday-back-biceps
    weighted pull ups-4x4-8
    bent over row-3x6-8
    deadlifts-2x6
    barbell curl-3x4-6
    static hold-1x30 secs

    wedsday-chest-shoulders-triceps
    incline DB press-2x4-6
    superset: incline DB flyes-2x4-8
    flat DB press-2x4-6
    superset: flat DB flyes-2x4-8
    side raise-2x4-8
    DB shoulder press-2x4-6
    lying tricep press-3x4-6

    friday-legs/abs
    squat-3x6-8
    superset: leg ext-3x8-10
    leg curl-3x4-6
    calf raise-2x6-8
    jacknife pushups-2x4-12

    Supplements:

    just started creatine today, using my own dosing method.

    week 1: load-10g 2x a day.
    week 2 and any time after that: 5g post workout.

    ALA: using it for its insulin mimicing effects mainly...really seems to help when drinking a 750 calorie shake.

    multivitamin: make sure there are no vitamin deficiencies in my diet, especially since i puke at the site of vegetable and fruit is not included due to the sugar content.

    calcium: no dairy, need calcium.

    ProLab N-Large2: just calories, bulking cleanly with no appetite isn't very easy, N-Large 2x a day gives me 1240 easily consumed calories.

    Goals:

    well, i'm currently 5'9" 142lbs, AKA a skinny mofo. this is my second time bulking, bulked for 5.5 months last time and gained a good 35lbs...25LBM, 10 fat. started BBing at 115lbs. i want to be at least 160, hopefully 170 by June, regardless of bodyfat %...i found cutting to be very easy, dropped 5% bodyfat in 6 weeks. no muscle lost.

    Strength Goals:

    none really set. i just strive to add a rep, or some weight every workout. but, i do want the 60lb DB's for incline DB press

    Updates:

    not much to say today, kinda my cheat day. this journal will be updted daily if time permits, and time usually does permit

    Update, 1/21:

    Diet: so far, perfect. one more meal to eat, already in the fridge ready to eat. 6 liters of water so far.

    Training:

    sucked!!!! today was leg day.during my final warm up set of squats, after a complete warm up and some stretching, my hams cramped up. couldn't even squat with no weight this hurt so much. dunno what the hell happened but it sucked. Chest/Back tomorrow. split has changed...workouts still the same though except for delts. added rear delt training, 2 sets of 6-8 reps of rear delt raises.

    new split:

    monday-chest/back
    wedsday-legs/abs
    friday-shoulders/arms

    same as Hulk's split, need a change.

    Supps: perfect, all supps on time.

    Update:

    Training:

    chest and back. what a hard workout...felt sick on my first couple of sets for chest, not sure why. up a rep on DB presses, and 2 reps on flyes. back training needs to change. bent rows are not working...the only results i get from them is a sore lower back and pumped biceps. started using lifting straps for the first time today...dramatically increased my intensity...only need 6 sets to kill my back instead of the usualy 9. direct forearm work will be added. added 1 rep to my pull ups, 10lbs to my row, and 10lbs to my dead...although i dropped a rep with the 10lb increase on deads. overall - good workout.

    Diet:

    meals on time, well, meal 3 was a little late, about 30 mins...but other than that, perfect. 2 gallons of water completed.

    Supps:

    all supps on time.

    Goals:

    set a few strength goals for 12 weeks...

    250lb deadlift for 6 reps.
    225lb squat for 6 reps
    60lbs DB press for 6 reps

    Stats

    i didn't add these before but i have decided i should.

    weight: 142lbs
    height: 5'9"
    bodyfat %: 12.2%

    no training tomorrow.

    Supps:

    all supps on time.

    Training

    wedsday-off
    thursday-legs
    friday-shoulders/arms
    saturday and sunday-off

    this split will start next week, if i don't change it by then

    Sleep

    It sounds like you are doing a good job, eattin all your meals, that's my biggest problem, not eatting all of my meals a day. When I can start eatting all 6 meals, and start Squatting and Deadlifing regularly after my ankle heals, then I will be gettin huge, guaranteed.
    It takes TIME + PATIENCE to make gains.

    got all 4000 cals down...2 gallons of water, all supps on time.

    Training

    trained legs. great workout. squats up 10lbs, SLDL up 20lbs, leg curl up 10lbs. abs are hurtin.

    Sleep

    got 13 hours.

    Update: Thrusday

    Diet

    diet was off a little...only fit 5 meals in, becuase i woke up at 1:30pm. 3500 cals. still got my 2 gallons of water in, and all supps on time.

    Training

    did shoulders and arms today, becuase i knew my energy levels would suck today, and they do. i tried to BB military, sucked, back to DB's. side laterals up 2 reps. did rear delt raise, they are hurting today. i decided to drop the weight a little for bi's and really concentrate on form, so they went down 5lbs on BB curl. i added incline DB curl. did 3 sets of tricep presses, up 5lbs.

    Sleep

    only got 1.5 hours!!!! feel good though, actually feel energized. can't make a habit of this though...going to bed soon.

    Update: Today

    cheat day. water is only at 1 gallon for today...feel like crap, i think cheat days will be eliminated from my schedule from now on...they are of no benefit.

    No Training

    Sleep

    going to bed in a few minutes...

    decided not to train yesterday, had no energy...figured i would be better off delaying a day. diet was so so, gotta work on my diet consistency...water only a gallon again. supps on time. got 4.5 hours of sleepand took some benedryl this morning before school like an idiot. went to the nurse and slept from period 1 to period 6...ate lunch an hour late becuase of that...but at least i got my sleep in and didn't have to be in class.

    todat i'm going to train chest/back, having my pre workout stuff now, i will update this again when the day is over - 8:30pm.

    Update:

    so far all meals are on time...just trained chest and back. i can't keep doing this, its pretty much impossible for me to get through both bodyparts on one day...didn't have the intensity left for the 2 sets of deads i was supposed to do, so i skipped them. lats are fried though, switched the routine a little:

    pull ups-2x4-8
    bent row-2x4-8
    superset: DB pull over-2x6-8
    deads-2x6

    i'm considering going even lower on volume...

    my sleep is really hindering me...need more sleep! from now on - 8 hours, NO LESS!!!!! oinly been getting 4-5 hours lately and i'm paying for it in gains. pull ups are down 2 reps but my bodyweight is 148 today, last week it was 143. BB row up 10lbs...incline DB press up a rep, flyes down 2 reps (what i wanted)...flat DB press down a rep and so was flat flyes.

    have 2 more meals to eat, right when i'm done with my last one...i'm going to sleep!

    well, only got 5 hours of sleep last night, so i skipped school and slept all day, ended up getting 14 hours! diet is off becuase of the sleep, but i needed the sleep more then the food. no training today...tomorrow - legs/abs. considering takeing a sleep aid, going to take some dymetap tonight and see if that does anything, but i don't really want to rely on drugs to sleep and to stay awake. i hate this insomnia crap, tired all day long, then when its finally time to go to sleep i can't get to sleep! grrr. water - 6 liters...yesterday also 6 liters.

    "Well Done Cack that is great news about your weight and lifts. How do you look in the mirror at the mo? "

    i look exactly the same except that my chest is growing extremely fast. i just weigh 8lbs more. top 2 abs are still in, same as before i started bulking.

    "I see your currently having troubl sleeping like myself"

    well, weight is at 146 now...it seems i always weigh 146. not checking bodyfat for another 2 weeks.

    diet has sucked for last 2 days, perfect today. water is a gallon all 3 days. supps, as always, on time.

    trained legs/abs today...i'm getting real low on volume, and i'm getting equal if not better results. today i did...

    squat-2x6
    SLDL-2x6
    calf raise-2x12
    ab wheel-2x5

    legs are dead...

    added 5lbs to my squat, and 10lbs to my SLDL.

    sleep has been about 10 hours the past 3 days....going for 7 tonight.

    i'm not going to keep updating this everyday....maybe 3-5 times a week...

    the best bodybuilding day i've had in a while.

    trained chest/shoulders/triceps today, added 5lbs to my DB presses finally! 1 rep to my flyes....did dips instead of flat DB press...did 4 reps at 154lbs. added 5lbs to my DB shoulder presses and got 4 reps...did a drop set on laterals. tricep presses were down a rep, but thats bcuz i did chest first this time, instead of my usual biceps only.

    calories...new food PR !!!

    5523 calories today!!!!!!!
    604g of carbs
    410g of protein
    163g of fat

    water - 10 liters...very high for me.

    all supps on time.

    sleep - 7 hours last night, gonna be 8 solid hours tonight, maybe more if school is closed, still snowing out.

    Well, currently cackerot69 I'm just working on keeping the size I've already got in my legs and am just working on tightening and hardening them up. Therefore I'm working in the 20-30 rep range and using a weight that alllows me to work through those reps and concentrate on squeeezing each rep as apposed to just pushing the weight!
