    Nice chest session man.


    Why do you have a full day just for biceps? I'd suggest do them w/ back or on saturday w/ abs.

    the reason why i do a full day of bi's is because i work them so hard that i really don't have enough strength or will power to work them after back/shoulders

    BF:
    2 bowls cherrios w/skim milk
    1 omlette, ham and cheese
    2 strips bacon
    1 strawberry yogurt

    Just thought I'd drop in and add a little to your new journal. Good luck with your goals. And since you're trying to add weight here's my 2 cents. Go to www.Fitday.com and put in your diet every day for a while. Then once you've got your calories and macros figured out up the calories by 500 per day till you are gaining a pound a week. Nice work so far!

    good luck with the journal, dump the bi's. Bicep exercises are overrated, and 25 is way overkill.

    lol, that was from ace ventura if you don't remember.

    25 sets is a lot for bi's. But give it a go and see what you think. You might want to decrease the volume a little, or pair them up with back-that way you'd be getting bi work from your back exersises plus some isolation work.

    I would suggest that you do as much research as you can. I started working out in February and I had no idea about anything. I did a lot of research on steriods (most of it comming from the anabolic zone on this board) and I know a decent amount now. Just read the board and all the threads in there, follow the links that pop up from time to time, and you'll learn a lot. It's overwhelming at first, but it's well worth it. I'm still undecided about whether I'll ever do a cycle, but now I'm much more well informed. I think you should still train for at least another year naturally since you're still a relative newcommer to training. How old are you?

    I hope this helped, if you have any more specific questions PM me. Or go to the Anabolic Zone board to get somebody more knowledgealbe about this to help you out

    I'd say that 18 is too young. I'm 20, and I think even that's too young. But if you think you have a promising football career and everybody else is doing it, it would be hard not to do it yourself. It's up to you, just make sure you make an informed decision

    i honestly think that i do have a promising football career, and that by taking a cycle it would make it even more promising. i just need some help with the cycle. if anyone is willing to help me that would be great. i just don't know if im ready yet. i also dont know enough about it.
