    sumchiconthenet starts a journal

    Got room for another? I needed to find a space to write this stuff out and possibly get some feedback. I am new to lifting but not so knew that I don't know a few things(well I would like to think I do anyway)..

    I am not a spring chicken but still feel like one until after a heavy leg day! So I am just keepin on keepin on..lifting what I feel comfy with & can handle on my own. I work out at home & have no spotter. I injured my shoulder last year & gave up lifting for way too long. Yeah my shoulder still hurts but not any worse than without lifting, and I am babying it still..but after all is said & done gonna still lift..ok I am just going to start out with what I have been doing this week & go from there..trying to get in here as often as possible.
    All postings will have weight listed first...
    1-23-04 LEGS

    Leg Ext-50x15(both legs) then went one leg doing 50x10each,one leg 50x8, then back to both 70x10, 80 x10
    comments- need to start at 60 or 70 I think for warm up

    Leg Curls-25x12, 35x10, 45x10, 45x8
    comments- need to start at higher weight

    Walking lunges-3 sets x25 each set..no weight

    Squats-45(bar)x10 3 sets
    comments- I suck at squats! Need to work on form..will probably drop weight while doing that.

    SLdead lifts-45x10, 45x10, 55x10, 55x10
    comments- These are my favorite exercise of all! I wish my hammies were stronger so I could lift more..I love these!

    well that was yesterday-today will be shoulders and calves..
    I will also get my diet written down & posted soon.. mainly consists of egg whites, tuna, protien shakes, etc etc...

    comments & critiques very welcome!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to journaland. Glad to have you aboard.

    25 reps on walking lunges? Even with no weight that's gotta burn!

    I think half of us here have had a shoulder problem at one point or another so between all of our bumps and bruises we can probably give you some decent advice. lol

    Careful with the shoulder Somechic. Make sure to always warm up well. Shoulder injuries are a b**ch

    I would rephrase that to be consistent rather than boring
    Good looking back session might as well really be in pain, is that the theory?

    Ditto. Nice leg workout there sumchic. You better not be cavin' in to the lazyboymustseetv dark side or me and Wikked will come over, kidnap you, and trap you in a power rack until you do 1,000 squats.

    Why does your shoulder hurt? Have you injured it before?
