    My little expedition to gettin bigger

    I guess it's time for me to start one of these bad boys

    Right now I'm about 3/4 of the way finished with the muscle media routine, and I have a chest/shoulder/tri workout tonight.

    AFter I'm finished with this I plan on starting a routine that hits each muscle 2x a week, which I will post once it's finished

    My gf is going to be spotting me tonight Hopefully she does better than usual lol.

    Oh well I'll post after I'm done.

    Starting Weight=151 Goal- 160-170 by jan 1st, and bench 250.

    Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke. he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today - Rock

    Thanks dedicated.

    Started off with chest, I'm about 5 weeks into the 7 week program.

    Workout Today

    Bench Press

    135 x 10
    205 x 3 went up suprisingly easy
    205 x 3 same
    220 x 2 got it!
    220 x 2, on this one after the first rep I told the gf I might need help on this next one, she thought I said I DO need help, so she grabbed the bar about halfway up, 99% sure I coulda got 2 so I'm countin 2! -gf messes up spot as predicted in 1st post

    230 x miss, so close, one of those benches where you get to about halfway and it stays there for about 3 seconds before you realize it's just a tad too much.


    Military Press

    95 x 8
    105 x 6
    105 x 6, this is usually about 10lbs more but since I started doin chest first- I'm a little wore out.

    Db Side raises

    20 x 8
    20 x 8

    Db Front raises

    25 x 6
    25 x 6

    Overhead tri extension

    45lb plate x 8
    45lb plate x 8


    Dips

    bw + 25 x 8
    bw + 25 x 8

    I'm happy with the workout even though I missed the 230, oh well. 220 x 2 is the most I've ever done so I'm satisfied. The last time I tried muscle media I reached a plateu at 215 x2 and could only do it once-I thought this was gonna happen today, it's good to know I'm gettin stronger

    Diet
    3 eggs,toast, bacon for breakfast
    boal of oatmeal around noon
    1 dish of rigatoni w/ 1 slice of ww bread
    1 dish of rigatoni
    1 hamburger, baked potatoe, salad
    20g of creatine(loading phase)
    1 post workout protein shake 40g
    about 1.5 gallons of water through out the day
    REst of food yet to be eaten, I'm a late night eater.

    Last night, watched movies with gf, didn't fall asleep till 4 I need to get to bed earlier, but I slept till noon because I was exhausted, so I got about 8 hours.

    Ate 4 egg omlet last night with toast before bed.

    This morning Oatmeal at noon.
    Rigatoni at 2 pm
    Sandwhich with baked potatoe at 4
    Waiting for groceries to arrive right now


    I'm doin legs today, which are by far my weakest point I never trained my legs until about 4 months ago, it's really helping my progress.

    Weighed in today at about 151, my goal is to reach 165-170 by January 1st-with a bench of 250. I think I should be able to get there.

    Legs today, I fell asleep and woke up about a hour before I had to meet friends for dinner, only had time for squats and leg curls.

    135 x 10, I usually go a little farther down on my warm up set

    155 x 8 little below parallel

    165 x 5 parallel

    185 x 3 parallel


    Leg curls:

    70 x 10

    80 x 8

    80 x 8

    I really need to improve my squat. Somethings wrong if you can Bench more than your squat lol. Oh well, I guess my legs are def my weak point.

    Saw jeepers creepers 2 tonight, it was horrible, even worse than the first. Hopefully I get a chance to get 2 more dumbells before my chest workout on sunday, I need to up them by 5lbs. Those damn things are like 25 bucks a piece

    Excellent foundation given your weight, you have a good frame for this. Get your spotter back. Though it's damn good that you felt comfortable enough to hit 210 for 3 without one.

    Belial- thanks, right now I'm trying to get real focused on my diet so I can bring my weight up. In about 2.5yrs I only put about 10lbs on due to my ****ty diet.

    Rookiebldr-666 lol I didn't even notice, thanks for stoppin in

    I'm starting to see a lot more gains since I started deadlifting(8 months ago) and squatting about 4 months ago. I wish I woulda found this site when I first started training.
