    Training
    I usually record my lifts after my workout but i decided to record it as i go.. from now on..
    What i'll do is make up 3~2 routines and switch it every week or two. This way my muscles won't ever adapt the exercise.. Each workout will have different resting time, exercise and etc.. also splits will be different..
    I'll post my 3 of routines up here soon.

    Today was Chest/Bi day,. I did incline BP ss with Fly 2sets, flat BP ss with fly 2 sets.. and for BI i tried 21 Gun salute... It kills..
    Good work out.
    Diet
    3600kcal good.. i think i must up my kcal by 400 more starting next week.. i looked little leaner this morening.. lol
