I'll start my journal properly next week but for today I’m just going to put down my goals, stats and training routine. I’m not worried about my diet at the moment; it’s well balanced and just needs as much protein as I can get in it.
I’ve been training for nearly two months now; so don’t laugh at my stats too much.
5’10” (only 15 so I’m still growing)
BF%: About 14%
Monday: Chest, Back
Wednesday: Legs, Abs
Short Term Goals:
Improve my 5-rep max on each exercise every week for 6 weeks. Lose the belly ready for athletics season.
Long Term Goals:
I will be a firm 180lbs in 2 years max and I will be benching 250lbs plus at the end of those 2 years.
I've sorted my new routine out, thanks to the help from Chicken Daddy and Latman

Training at home this week and need some more plates so excuse the tiny little weights on some exercises.
- Military Press 20kg (44lbs)
- Seated DB Press 22kg each (48.4lbs)
- Deadlift 50kg (110lbs)
- BB Rows 30kg (66lbs)
- Drink 10 pints of water
- Add at least 2kgs to my lifts for next Monday (where possible)
I would suggest to do back before shoulders unless your shoulders are lagging far behind your back. Also, do chest before triceps.
This reason is because the shoulder muscles are much smaller than the back muscles and the same goes for triceps and chest. You should do the biggest muscle first, which you can do exercises which use the most muscles and push the most weight.
Other than that, the exercises look good and I like the low-moderate volume. Good luck with it!
