/I'll take my problems to the weight floor/ Let the iron make my spirit soar.
So here's my plunge into the world of Journals.
Some brief general history: I was made skinny. Very skinny. To the tune of 148lbs @ 6'-2.8" (190cm). Couldn't seem to gain weight no matter what I did.
I first wandered into a gym at 19 but without a clue. By trial and error I started putting up better numbers in the last couple of years and have managed to gain some bulk. A year ago I discovered WBB and almost immediately had to have my appendix out, so it gave me time to do some browsing, learning, etc. I went back to the gym in early July of 2005 at 175lbs. I'm considering that the beginning of my real training.
Currently I'm ~200lbs, bf% is somewhere in the low 20's (my guess).
This last weekend was a big party weekend, and yesterday was my first trip back to the gym. I'm on a Lower/Upper split 2x/week. I skipped legs because they still hurt from 12 hours of working out my problems on the dancefloor and the workout was still a "recovery" workout...
Incline DB- 50x8, 65x9, 75x7
Low Row (cable)- 100x8, 140x8, 170x6
Seated Chest Press- 90x10, 135x8, 155x5
Lat Pulldown- 100x8, 140x8, 170x8
Bent Over Laterals (cable)- 30x7, 50x4, 40x4
Shouder DB Press- 40x8, 50x8, 60x4
Tricep Cable Pushdowns- 60x8, 80x7, 100x7
Hammer Curls- 35x8, 45x5
Reverse Curls- just the oly bar, sets of 7, 8, 8
Right median delt started bothering me on the incline DB. I was planning 4 sets but cut it at three, and then the seated chest press was a bitch- could hardly find a position to press without shoulder pain. Spent the whole workout shaking it out and massaging it like an idiot. At least the music in my ears was excellent (Your Child- Chocolate girlfriend mix, Perculator- Twilo mix, and some Live @ Roxy 4). Must have listened to Mary J some 4x and Perculator at least twice. Wrists complained at the higher DB weight at the beginning of the workout but were better by the time of the shoulder press.
