I looked around the site and it looks interesting. Started training a couple months ago, after a pretty long hiatus (knee injury, caused lots of my muscles to atrophy). Weight when I started 12 weeks ago was 145, weight today is 160. Pretty happy with that, since my metabolism is so high. Hopefully I'll keep gaining about a pound a week.

BBP = barbell flat bench press
RW = machine row
IDBP = incline dumbell bench press
LPD = lat pulldown
DBF = flat dumbell flyes
SQ = squatts
SCR = seated calf raises
LE = leg extensions
LC = leg curls
BBE = barbell extensions
SS = shoulder shrugs
DBC = dumbell curls
FR = front raises
HC = hammer curls
LR = lat raises
I think that's all of them. Also note that I only write down the work sets. In general I also do a warm up set before and a low-weight/high-rep burn out set after the work sets. I'm too lazy to type those in. Also the reason I use the abbreviations.
Jim, I would recommend that you drop the front raises as you anterior delts get more than enough stimulation from benching

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.

thanks, I was going to move a few things around this week anyway. I'll give it a shot.
leg extensions are much different from before because they changed machines on me at the gym, so I still need to figure out where I'm at on that one. I moved the shrugs to today but didn't do them because I just did them on sunday.
damn today sucked. bench press was fine and after that I had no energy. Probably didn't get enough sleep this week.
one of my shoulders was a little sore so I didn't go to failure on the bench press, didn't seem to affect my inclines though
I tried chins today for the first time (since middle school) instead of lat pull downs.
Started dips today, surprised I could do it. bench didn't go up at all, I think my shoulders are failing too soon, can't even feel my chest being worked. I guess I'll have to wait until the shoulders catch up.
Can't go to the gym for the next two weeks cause they are remodelling it.
Those jerks took 6 weeks to remodel the gym instead of 2. Now I can finally start going again.
Skipped Wednesday's workout cause my arms were just too sore from monday. For today:
Was out of the gym for 2 wks cause went on a trip.
