    Starting from scratch

    Well, decided to do this. I started training last Saturday, I'll start my journal now.

    Goals:get rid of fat, put on alot of muscle, all while keeping speed, will need for football.

    Posting four FAT pictures of myself. Will post new pics every month for self motivation and to see results.

    Stick to diet and training, don't let up, remember when you used to be built!!!!!!!!!! Get the fire back!!

    Again, today I did no workout. I did last Saturday thru Friday, so I took the weekend off. I think I will try to split it up a little different from now on as I feel like crap after taking two days straight off. Will resume tommorow!!

    I don't know why, but I really struggle with the cleans. I don't know if it's because I do them last, or I'm just not used to them yet (new exercise for me)

    I felt like I was gonna puke at the end. I was so tired I got pissed off because I still had to put my weights away.

    Still struggling with the decision about taking creatine. Any thoughts anybody?

    That's all for today!!

    Try doing the cardio after your workout. Give ya more energy for lifting.

    Nice Squat, should have included a pic of your legs. Whats your stats (height, wieght, bf%, age)??

    Great job man

    I'm 23 years old, 6'5, 260 lbs. I don't know my bodyfat, but as you can see from the pictures, it's pretty high. The reason I do the cardio before weights is because I need to lose a bit of fat before really adding muscle, and if I wait until after the workout I know I'll slack off on the cardio aspect from being to tired from the weights. Thanks for the encouragement. It really helps keep me motivated, glad I decided to do a journal!!

    Good Lord.

    Justin = big boy.

    I wouldn't bother with the creatine yet.. get your lifitng and diet in order first.

    Cleans can be a little dicy... keep the wiehgt low and practice them.

    Ditto on the cardio and ab work... do it AFTER you train your legs, if at all. I never do cardio on leg day - I'm too tired.

    Nice lifts.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I has a facebook.

    Thanks jock, makin' me blush!! :o

    As far as working out today, nothing due to the fact that I was installing my Direct TV system, took a little ( a lot) longer than expected.

    Needed the rest after that leg workout anyways. Back at it tommorow!!
