    I don't want to screw up your journal or anything, but I myself also started at 115 lbs, however this is only like the begining to my new workout and diet. I'm up to like 119, but I was just wondering when you were around 115 how many calories did you start eating daily? and how often did you workout? Thanks.
    5'6"
    160lbs
    480x1 deadlift
    315x5 squat (atf)
    260x1 bench

    I feel kinna bad to say this, but i didn't like maki training regimen... I Tried to follow so far but i did not progress on any of my lifts... just a little bit..
    I am thinking of making one new diet, and training.
    2 months more bulking and i'll be at 160lb.. and will cut down to 145lb.
