    My Journal: "The Summer of Gettin' Jacked..."

    Hell. Why not? Everyone else is doing journals and so I figured I'd start one. I'm completely new to lifting, and I don't mind if you laugh your a$$ off at my recordings... Just keep in mind: I'm not a Body Builder that started a journal, I'm a kid who started Body Building with this very journal!

    Anyway my journal is very well laid out so I'm sure you'll be able to follow it easily. I got the "lbs x reps (!)" idea from BELIAL, in order to record new records. (You'll see alot of new records, the first couple of weeks, since I'm just starting)

    What else? Oh right. I'll post my lifting regime as it breaks down over the week:

    Day 1: Chest, Biceps
    Day 2: Rest
    Day 3: Legs, Shoulders
    Day 4: Rest
    Day 5: Back, Triceps
    Day 6: Rest
    Day 7: Rest

    I'm not posting specific excercises here, as you'll see them in my journal.

    One final note: I DON'T do squats, and I DON'T do deadlifts. tuttut I'm still growing and I am an avid soccer player (I'm not taking any chances on my growth or my knees.) I know some of you... I mean all of you will disagree, but I decided I can still make progress without squats and deads.

    You probably want to know some stats about me.

    I'm 17 years old (male if you havn't guessed) and I weigh as of today 115 lbs! Man, will that change fast And I'm just starting lifting today, so I'm more worried about FORM than weight. FORM! FORM! FORM!

    Alright I guess thats it! I hope you enjoy my journal that I WILL BE KEEPING ALL SUMMER, I just might need motivational from you guys

    That was my notation originally, assface. He borrowed it from me. So nyah.

    That said, glad to see you're starting a journal! These things really, really help.

    WORKOUT: (CHEST & BICEPS)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Bench Press: 45 x 8, 65 x 8 (!), 65 x 8

    First time ever doing this exercise, and so of course I set
    my record (65 x 8), itís not much but it will be going up.
    I started with just the bar so I could learn the form, and
    then I added the weight.

    Incline Bench Press: 65 x 12 (!), 65 x 12

    Again first time with this exercise and so I set my record of
    (65 x 12) the same amount of weight I benched, but this was
    in a machine and so it was easier to control (plus I was at
    an incline and that makes it easier), thus, I did three
    more reps.

    DB Flyes: 12 x 12, 12 x 12 (!)

    Once again, it was the first time doing flyes. I felt that I could
    Have done a lot more weight, but I wanted to make sure my
    form was perfectÖ and so I set (12 x 12) Wow. I never thought
    the eight would equal the reps. Anyway I have excellent form
    and I will do better next week!

    Bar Curls: 25 x 12, 25 x 12 (!)

    I hadnít done this exercise before either. I did two sets at
    (25 x 12) and set a new record. I could have done more
    but I wanted to keep perfect form through out.


    DB Curls: 15 x 8 (!), 12 x 8, 10 x 8

    I started out doing 8 reps at 15 lbs to failure, and then took
    away weight each timeÖ by the time I was doing 10 lbs it
    felt harder than the 15! Anyway I set a record at (15 x 8)

    Much as I like to see people really EATING, I think 5,400kcal is a bit much considering you only weigh 115lbs. I weigh 210 and 5,000kcal is even a bit high of an intake for me--though I am, by nature, quite endomorphic. I'd say 20xbodyweight +500kcal is a better starting point. So, in your case that's 2800kcal. Just to make it an even number, bump it up to 3,000kcal. I'd at least see how you do at this level for a couple of weeks. Otherwise, I really think you're gonna end up putting on a disproportionate amount of fat--though if you're really a hardgainer and since you're just starting out you might do okay. I'd just hate to see you turn yourself into a fat-ass unnecessarily.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesnít realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Ya but he also is active as well. If he's playing soccer I'm assuming there is practices as well as the game.

    Good job!!!!!

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I don't know if i'll even gain weight w/ over 5,000 calories...

    I must have a huge metabolism, I've been trying over 5,000 calories all this week and I still havn't gained a pound of fat. I bet my body fat percent is under 10 at least... But I have been putting on mass, and I am looking more muscular so hopefully this is the perfect diet to gain weight in terms of solid mass but not add any fat.
