Here I go, this time for real.. Actually hit the gym for the first time today and I am not stopping.
Weight: 140 lbs.
Bodyfat %: Somewhere between 10-15% probably
I'm a seriously skinny dude. I have practically no muscle development on my shoulders or upper chest...very bony up there, looks terrible in a t-shirt. Very thin forearms and small wrists. Left bicep is noticeably weaker than my right bicep and smaller as well (played tennis for years as a righty, I assume this is why).
Going to do a 4-day split... Back/Bi's, Chest/Tri's, Legs, Shoulders
Today was Back/Bicep day. I was mostly concerned about form and not killing myself so I could have lifted a bit more on these, especially the deadlift which I enjoyed.
Pull-ups - 2 sets of 8 and 7 reps w/ 10lb assistance
Deadlifts - 115x8, 115x7
Bent-over barbell row - 85x7, 85x6
Shrugs - used 45's should have used more, did 8 reps
Dumbell curls - my arms felt so dead...20x8, 20x6
Hammer curls - ugh...20x6
I hate bent-over barbell rows and am going to replace them with dumbell rows. It really is disgusting how weak I am and felt at the gym.
I am aiming for 6 meals today but since my diet was so horrible before this and my caloric intake so low, I will probably max out at 5. I'll be having eggs, 2 cans of tuna, and 2 shakes w/ a carb source like oatmeal or pasta, and 3 tbsp of flax throughout the day. I had a dextrose spiked kool-aid drink w/ creatine after workout.
Eating is going to be very hard for me but I'm going to work my ass off to get some results. A lot of my depression lately has to do with my size (or lack thereof) and I am never going to snap out of it unless I do something about it. I just sincerely hope I can discipline myself enough to do this.
Keep me motivated guys, please
