    Clockwork24's Journal

    Hey guys...I've made a few posts over the last 2 months and its long overdue that I've started a journal here. I'm a 25 year old male from Long Island, NY. I'm 5'8” and 137 lbs. I've been lifting weights for around 3 ½ months, but I haven't been going as many days as I should. My diet has been an even bigger problem because although I know I need to eat a lot, I've been on a wacky schedule and eat most of my food later in the day. I am, however, getting stronger and I definitely gained a good 5 pounds of what appears to be muscle. If I hit the gym more religiously and ate more, I know I could have gained over 15 lbs during those 3 months. With all that being said, my short term goal is to gain at least 15 lbs over the next 2 months so that I'll weigh no less than 150 lbs and have noticeably bigger arms by the time classes start in early September.
    My routine has been changing a bit over the weeks while sticking to the M-W-F split. I started off doing chest/triceps – legs/shoulders – back/biceps. Then I switched to chest/biceps – legs/shoulders – back/triceps. I've been doing mostly compound excercises such as deadlift, squats, dumbell presses, dips, french-press, etc. Most excercises are done in sets of 3-4 with 6-12 reps. Last week things got screwed up because I trained with someone who likes to train one muscle group each day so he had me doing 5 chest exercises in 1 ½ hours! My plan is to start the WBB#1 workout tomorrow, but I'm still open to suggestions on how to tweak things so that I can see some great gains.
    Now to officially start my journal I will give you guys an idea of what I'm cramming into my mouth as I type. Lol
