Hey! I started SS a week ago today, and decided to start a journal. I doubt anyone will read this, but it will give me extra motivation to keep going, and keep improving.
My story is similar to a ton of other people's. I don't have access to a gym, so bought a load of weight lifting equipment and started my own routine. Lots of it was focused on biceps, which obviously does not work. I've been doing that for about 6 months, now, and it hasn't gotten me results -shocking. I look alright, but I'm small, don't have a ton of muscle, and I'm not very strong. I want to change that.
I know! Ridiculous, right? I've always been small. Weight isn't my issue, though I do have a problem with eating well.
Today was chest and back.
Barbell BP -85 lbs, 2x8
DB BP -35 lbs, 2x8
Incline DB BP -30 lbs, 2x8
Dips -BW +10 lbs on lap, 2x10
Chin ups -BW, 2x8
Deadlifts -95 lbs, 2x7
Barbell Rows -90 lbs, 2x6
Shrugs -90 lbs, 2x8
Ha ha, I know, it's ridiculously bad. Very low amount of weight, but I've already added some weight on from last week. Getting better!
I might get some pics up here. I'm taking pictures of me every month on the same day, to see how I progress. Should be fun! I'm psyched!
