I've been looking at some journals,and apart from being a big motivavtion to me, I realise that they will also help me stick to my plans as they have done for many of you.
From my name you might guess that I'm a kayak and surf ski racer. I'm making a big effort this winter (I'm on Oz) to put on some extra kilos and catch up to the big guys.
I started to bulk about 3 months ago, started at 72 Kilos and in the Gym on Monday night I was 78... a PR. I've always had a very low body fat level, but I've cut back heaps on cardio for this period in an attempt to get bigger and stronger. I'm also eating an extra two meals a day. So the bodyfat has risen a bit, maybe to 12%
I train in the gym 3 times a week. My split is Chest/Tris/Shoulders/ABS and Back/Bis/Legs. I start one week with the first session on a Monday, the the second on a Wednesday, the the first again on a Friday. I might drop in some different excercises in each too, like flys one sessions, incline bench the next on chest days for example. You will notice from my workouts that I'm not very concerned with legs, this isn't 'cos I don't like doing them, just that I can't afford to carry the extra weight around in the kayak.
Tonight is Chest/tris/shoulders day, so I'll post tomorrow how I go.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
