    Just A Workhorse

    Alright, I've had several PM's now requesting that I start up a journal and post some pics. I just wish the pic requests had come from girls

    Presently, these are my stats:
    Age: 22, 23 in 6 days (Oct. 30)
    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 198#
    BF%: about 10-11%

    As of Monday, I started bulking, and my main goal is to get to 210 by Christmas. Now whether this is possible, I have no idea. I have good form on all my excercises, and I hardly ever miss a workout, my biggest problem is nutrition. Now I know this is the MOST important thing for a weightlifter (I'm not a bodybuilder and I'm not a powerlifter, I merely lift weights), but eating is just my biggest problem. I should have put on a ton of weight in the past year, but of course, I haven't because I just don't eat right. I think I've put on about 5-10 pounds this year.

    So, these are my goals, by Christmas:
    Weight: 210#
    BF%: Who cares, I'm bulking!! lol

    These are my goals by next June:
    Weight:215#
    BF%: below 10%

    What my daily diet roughly looks like:
    NLarge2 for breakfast (about 30g protein - 2/3 of a serving) w/ 5g glutamine at 6:30am
    Can of tuna at 9:30am
    Lunch at 12:30
    Can of tuna at 3:30
    On days I workout, I have 30g of whey isolate protein right after I finish in the gym, w/ 5g creatine, 5g glutamine, 35g dextrose
    Supper at 7:30pm
    Blended protein (about 30g protein) w/ 5g glutamine

    Right now, I'm doing a 3 day split of:
    Tuesday: chest and tri's
    Thursday: legs and shoulders
    Saturday: back and bi's

    Usually 9 sets of larger muscle group, 6 for smaller muscle group.

    You are all welcome to post in here, hell, crack jokes, give me pointers, call me as assface (right Acc??), whatever, this isn't just for me, it's for everyone.

    Oh, and here's a quick pic to put a face to the name.

    If you don't wanna break the bank, quit buying supplements. They aren't helping you anyways.

    LOL....Ninja Island is a mystical place that is neither here nor there....it exists throughout most of the world....parts of it can be found in Michigan, and in New York, Pennsylvania, and Toronto....as well as down here in Hickvil...er, Alabama, where I am, and my close neighbor Tennessee. We even have reports of it being seen in parts of Europe, mostly near Newcastle, England. It is NOT near France however.

    But who can say?

    BTW-- this post counts as my obligatory spam

    Good luck towards reaching your goals you set. EAT!!!!

    How many people live in Calgary?

    p.s. you really do have a great sense of humor. :evillaugh

    EDITED: for a mispelled word. I hate doing that....the perfectionist I am LOL. Problem is I can't spell.

    Well, Work - its slow, so I'm not too busy. Lifting and eating - there's ALWAYS time for those! Nights are full of hockey and chores, and well, the new play toy... she's been around for a while and is actually away doing her practicum for school (Nuclear Medicine) and I only see her for a 5 day weekend once a month.

    I'm eating as we speak actually... chicken and shrimp fettucine alfredo (homemade - by me!). And as for Calgary, there are 900,000 people here. Although most of them are idiots... I'm a country boy who works in the city.

    Well, here we go. My first "workout" post of my journal. My workout sucked and it'll be better next week!!! Now I know I only did like 8 sets for legs, and believe me, this isn't normal!! And I normally don't do 12 sets for shoulders, that isn't a regualr things either. So don't hack on me for it, its not my normal amount of sets etc. lol

    Here's what I did:
    SQUATS:
    175x6, 275x12, 295x12 (missed my 3rd work set - will do another set next week like normal)

    SLD:
    135x10, 135x12, 185x12

    STANDING CALF RAISES:
    255X12, 255X12, 270X10

    DB MILITARY PRESS:
    65x8, 65x8, 65x6

    TEA CUPS:
    30x6, 25x8, 25x10

    BENT OVER REV. DB FLYES:
    20x8, 20x10, 20x8

    45# PLATE FRONT RAISES:
    8, 8, 7

    There ya go, my first workout for this journal. I didn't do abs because the gym I was at doesn't have anywhere to do them.

    WHAT IN THE HELL is a tea cup? This isn't "Workhorse's Sexual Journal", is it? There will be no tea cupping or tea bagging while we're on duty.

    LOL... damn leo.... a tea cup? it's a lateral DB raise. When you get to the top (parallel with your shoulder, you turn your thumb down to stress the muscle a little more, and it looks like you're pouring water out of a jug, or "tea into a tea cup". I don't know, I've just always heard them called that.... it's a lateral raise.

    The only way this is going to turn into "Workhorse's Sexual Journal" is if Sav, Roxy, Jane, Allie, and Tryska start posting in here!! But hey, that wouldn't be so bad now would it?

    Alright, I went to the gym on Saturday and it felt pretty good. I'm going to have to bump up some of my weights considering that I got way more than 8 reps donw for some of the excercises. But then again, it feels good to mix it up a little every once in a while.

    Here's what I did:
    DEADLIFTS:
    135x6, 225x8, 315x6, 365x5, 385x3

    BENT OVER BB ROWS:
    135x8, 185x7, 155x8

    WIDE GRIP PULLUPS:
    BWx8, BWx6, BWx5

    LAT SWEEPDOWNS: (don't know the exact name for this excercise)
    110x12, 120x10, 120x9

    INCLINE DB CURLS:
    20x6, 35x10, 35x9, 35x8

    STANDING EZ BAR CURLS:
    80x12, 80x7, 80x8

    ONE ARM DB PREACHER CURLS:
    30x8, 30x8, 30x8

    ABS

    There ya go, next time I'm going to bump the weights on a few of the excercises. I'll be back in the gym on Tuesday for chest and tri's. Next weekend I might even try for a personal best and go for a 405 deadlift. But I'm not sure, I don't know if I'll be able to do it. Any advice?

    I would definitely say go for it if you just want to do 1 rep. You are pulling some pretty heavy stuff for reps with 365 and 385. I don't think you will have any problems.

    I did 405 Friday for the first time (I may have pulled it once before but can't remember) and it was some heavy ****.

    I have no doubts you can do it though.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, I just wish I looked like I could pull that much. I'm glad I'm strong, but I for sure don't look like I can pull up 405. I think I'm going to try it, just for one rep. It's always been a goal of mine, so I really hope I can do it. I think its going to be more of a mental battle than a physical one!! Thanks for the encouragement though, it is greatly appreicated.

    Bennett, for you and I having simliar body stats, (from what I remember), I sure don't look like you... although I wish I did... lol.

    Well, I worked out with a buddy of mine yesterday and things went pretty good. He didn't have a lot of time so we worked out fairly fast - my breaks in between sets were basically long enough to change weights and thats it. Normally I get a little longer rest in between sets so you'll notice on some of the excercises that the weight drops with each set, but the amount of reps stay the same. Felt like I had a good workout, so that's all I can go by. Back in the gym tomorrow for legs and shoulders, although some friends want to take me out for wings and beer tonight for my birthday, but I think I'll skip the beer. lol

    Here's what I did:
    BB FLAT BENCH PRESS:
    135x8, 225x6, 275x6, 255x7, 225x8

    DB INCLINE BENCH PRESS:
    80x8, 80x6, 80x6

    CABLE CROSSUPS: (arms go from loweest cable setting up to chest level infront of me)
    30x10, 40x8, 40x8

    FRENCH PRESS:
    95x11, 105x6, 95x8

    STRAIGHT BAR PUSHDOWNS:
    130x10, 140x9, 140x9

    REVERSE GRIP PUSHDOWNS:
    110x10, 120x7, 120x7

    Didn't do abs because I was so tired.

    Well, we'll see what happens tonight for my birthday, who knows... maybe I'll cave in and have a few beers... lol.
