    Eat Lift Sleep Repeat

    I am 5'11 and ~149. I have been lifting for about 3 months, lifting correctly for about a month and a half as of today. I have used this site from the beginning, and it has helped me immesnley. I have gained almost a steady 10lbs.

    I constantly forget my journal everywhere, therefor I will start keeping track here.

    My routine is WBBR#1

    Monday : Chest & Back
    Tuesday : Off
    Wednesday: Legs
    Thursday : Off
    Friday : Shoulders, Tri's, Bi's
    Sat: Off
    Sun: Off

    I am currently bulking, eating everything in site whenever possible.

    My shakes consist of 2 Cups Skim Milk, 2 Scoops whey, 2 TBSP peanut butter, 1 Cup Oatmeal.

    I have one in the morning, one pre workout, one at night.

    We will be taking pictures monthly from this point on to track gains, I will be posting weight and measurements aswell.

    Morning Shake
    2 Wimpie's Broccoli Home Fries 2 whole milks
    Preworkout shake
    Half PB Sandwich + 1/2 Chicken Wrap + 1/2 Lunch & Meat Wrap (lol, my friend feeds me alot. woo!)
    1 can tuna on white w/ mayo
    Night Shake

    Chest And Back
    Bench Press: 145x8 | 150x6 (I just found out you are supposed to include the bar weight, that accounts for sudden jump in weight. Sets felt good, good form also.)
    Incline DBP: 55x8 | 55x7
    Dips: BW+5x8 | BW+5x7 (Sharp pain immediatley after set, fades into burn)
    Lat Pulldown: 100x8 | 105x8 (I don't like these, want to get a chinup bar asap)
    Deadlift: 180x8 | 185x7 (Pretty good form I think, switched to mixed grip)
    BBRows : 110x7 | 110x7 (Switched to a wider grip, still not sure if I am doing them right)
    Shrugs: 110x10 (Realized I am supposed to do reps of 10, need to work on form, possibly drop weight)

    Good workout, lost energy quick, but pushed out the sets nonetheless.

    Alright, so I got Gonna start fresh :-)

    Skipped friday. Too tired after football + weed.

    Today was chest and back. I didn't each lunch today either, because the food sucked that bad today at lunch. This isn't good.

    Bench Press: 155x7 160x5 (These felt pretty good)
    Incline DP Press: 60x7 60x6 (These sucked + weight dropped because I kind of crushed the tip of my index finger while unloading the barbell. Couldn't grip the left db)
    Deadlifts: 160x8 170x7 185x5 200x3 (I like this new method of dl'ing)
    Shrugs: 100x10
    Mil Press: 80x6 75x7 (Very tired at this point)
    Narrow Grip BP: 110x8 115x7 (Still tirrrreddddd)
    BBCurls: 70x10 (I went for a high rep range for some reason. Said **** it after the first set)
    Wrist Roller: 30xFull 30x3/4 (Left forearm didn't feel worked as much, I am assuming it's because i wasn't gripping that hand as tight due to my finger injury)

    Today kind of sucked for the most part except for rows. I complelty forgot dips, which i am going to replace w/ decline bench next week, and lat pulls. OOPS :-X. Made up for some of my excs missed on friday.
    Tomorrow is a new day. Looking forward to squatting this week.
