    Hey,

    Currently trying to gain lean muscle
    Total Calories: 3200, was on 3400 before
    Age 19
    Height 5"3
    Weight: 145lbs, My goal is to get to 12stone, which is 168lbs with about 6 to 8 % bodyfat, but im in no rush to get there. And with Miss A helping me i have already progressed so far in such a short space of time.

    I have been lifting since i was 16 but did not realise how important my diet was (i've never liked fast food, but back then i used to eat so much with my mums homemade sauce) and only really did it to keep fit. Not till about June 1999 I started to become more serious and I started counting calories in September 2000. I also used to be 126lbs or 9 stone

    Training: Currently on the Wannabebig routine and progressing each and every workout

    Today Wednesday 24th Jan
    Squats: 181.5lbs(82.5kg) x 6 (My goal for squats is to be able to squat at least 100kg = 220lbs
    Stiff Leg dead lifts went up today
    Leg press went up today

    Sleep: Sleep has been very restless over the last couple of weeks and I have not slept right through the night in a hell of long time, I usually wake up a minimum of three times a night and thats on a good night. So I ordered to ZMA and see if that could help me at all

    Diet: I eat 7 times a day
    My diet consists of the following things
    Egg whites (about 3 yolks a day)
    Lean Steak Mince
    Venison (love the stuff)
    Lean Chicken Mince
    Chicken breasts
    Turkey Steak
    Lean Turkey Mince
    Tuna
    Salmon

    Red Kidney Beans
    Red lentils
    Soya beans
    Chick Peas
    Broccoli
    Cauliflower

    Oatmeal
    Wholewheat Pasta
    Sweet Potato

    Natural Peanut butter, cruncy and smooth
    Natural Hazlenut butter
    Natural Almond Butter
    Natural Cashew butter
    Natural Tahini butter (stuff tastes like pure poo)
    Almonds
    Walnuts
    Cashews
    Hazlenuts
    Flax Oil

    Supps: Prolab Isolate whey
    1 x Multivitamin per day
    2g vitamin c daily, 1 g post workout
    10g Prolab Glutamine, 5g Post workout
    Nlarge2
    Eas ZMA HP, only got this through the post today and not going to take 4 capsules prior to workout, just the 4 capsules 30 mins before bedtime. Mainly just taking it for my sleep.

    Tomorrow is a grow day, But friday is shoulders, bi's and tri's hoping to increase my military press, barbell curl and my skull crushers (not really a fan of skull crushers)

    Later
    Francesco

    Today is going fine with all food and supps on time water intake could still be higer.

    Took ZMA for the first time last night 30 mins before I went to bed slept a BIT better, took it about 30 mins before I went to bed, started feeling VERY sleepy when i went to bed.

    Tomorrow chest shoulders and triceps. Hopefully miltary press and Seated dunbell press will go up, dont think the current routine with skullcrushers and close grip bench is enough for my bench and itt seem like me beloved horseshoe tris are going aghhhhhhhhhhhh , wann go back to old routine ROAR. Bi's going to try and increase my weight o the EZ curl bar. I WILL TRAIN LIKE A BEAST POSSESED SO PEOPLE A THE GYM PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE (Unless its a life or death sitution). Also weekend warriors leave me alone i will give u advice another time.

    Ooh me mum's birthday tomorrow. Hope she will like the pressie I got her.

    Is there anything at home/work that could be affection your sleep? Stress can play a major role, if you can identify it try to solve it as quickly as possible. Keep up the good work!

    You ever tried seated skulls? They have worked wonders for me. Maybe for you too...

    P.s. My current tri routine:

    3 sets seated skulls
    3 sets rope pushdowns ( + 1 drop set)

    Meals: Meals 1 and 2 were bother earlier than normal Meal 3 was a bit late today.

    I feel bloody exhausted today, I woke up at 4:55am and could not get back to sleep, this ZMA is improving my sleep overall but its making me wake even earlier for some strange reason. Its a good job its a grow day today otherwise i would have had a poor training day.

    Water intake could be higher.

    Leg day tomorrow my favourite day, hopefully increase on all my excercises. I will keep you informed

    Laterz

    Food: All my meals have been on time,

    Supps: All on time

    I woke up earlier than usual once again, its really starting to distress me.

    Today was legs day, my fave day.

    Anyway My leg Press, stiff legs, leg curl, and standing calve raise went and i was especially pleased about my max on squat I managed 187lbs or 85kg for 6 reps

    I asked the owner of the gym today " Will you bbe getting dumbells that are heavier than 30kg (66lbs) in the future, he said, " Nope, we dont want the bodybuilder type who weighs 15 stone" or 210 pounds plus

    And I thought I might have to change gyms soon as im progressing

    I will inform you how much I weigh and how shoulders, bi's and tri's goes on friday

    On the Zma I feel that my sleep is much deeper than before,
    Its still early days as i only started it last wednesday, i dont think it has helped with my lifts thus far, but I think it will help in the future.

    Yep I know how to do those smilies now. Cheers Geordie Bloke (for some reason I was gonna call you a scouser, that would be a sacrilige)

    Food: All food on time so far

    Supps: All taken

    Weight: 148.5lbs

    Training: Today I increased the amount of reps on my miltary press, skullcrushers, close grip. And the best thing of all today was that i finally managed 8 reps of 22.5kg (49.5lbs) on seated dubmbell press, two weeks ago i could only manage half a rep, last week 2 and half. I was extremely happy with this.

    The Zma is working well my sleep is deeper, and im bubbling full of energy.

    Weekend will try and get plenyt off rest ready for chest and back on monday

    Two things:
    1. don't you think the little face i put in just above makes it look i am propositioning you for something (i think you know what i mean!). Ignore any sexual conatation you may derive from it!

    2. I pressed 30kg's today

    Just thought i'd rub it in somewhat....

    Training: Today was an AWESOME workout, I increased my bench, weigthed dips, bent over rows and deadlifts and also managed 5 reps of 27.5kg (60.5lbs) on incline dumbells, im not going to go onto 30kg (66lb) dumbells until i can get a good solid 8 reps out of 27.5kg.

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.
