I decided I wanted to keep a journal so that the members here can check out my routine, diet, etc. and help me improve on them. I also want to be able to track my progress.
I am almost 18 years old and have been working out steadily since last October. At the time I was about 145 lbs. and about 5'11. Right now I'm at 160 lbs. and lingering close to 6'. I haven't gained much size since I started back in October of last year, but my strength has significantly improved. I am decently cut at about 8-9% bf. The only supplement I am taking is L-Glutamine and have just recently started taking it daily.
I am now hoping to gain some size in my arms and the rest of my body, but I'd like to maintain a nice cut at the same time. I'm guessing this can be done due to me having such a high metabolism. To begin with I have lowered the reps and raised the amount of weight I'm doing during my arm exercises. I have also just recently given up assisted dips and have started weighted dips. I also don't think I'm ready to begin doing squats or deadlifts; I am too scared of serious injury. I'm hoping it is still possible to gain mass without them though.
I'm going to try and keep up with everything I eat during the days and every exercise I do at the gym. Please feel free to comment or give suggestions. Thanks.
