    Abbs:
    I actualy used a machine for my abbs today, booo I know.
    The machine said 140, it didn't feel like it but anyways
    140x8x5

    Note:
    Over all it was a good workout, I'm seeing progress and it's not that slow and my strength is slowly going up but I hate waiting. I'm not bulking like most people on this site are; I'm going with the slow and steady LBM since I'm going more for looks then pr's. I guess my goal is a great physique. It's just discouraging when the scale never goes up even though it has. I'm just looking for instant results, which we all know doesn’t happen. . I guess the best way to do it is to just train hard like we all do and avoid the scale for a few months. That's what I did last time. Oh well, again over all a great day.

    Cirion83: Thanks for stopping by man! I'm trying man, I literaly kill my self at the gym.

    Herandi: I'm terrible at tracking my maintenane cals. I've always just ate until I've been full and that kept me roughly the same size. Now I just eat until i'm not hungry then shove more food down my throat, it's 90% healthy and I know it's not much above maintenance but it's some.

    Pbal17: damn right

    Decided to write in my journal tonight because there is nothing else to do besides smoke a blunt and write in this journal after a 12 hour day .
    Excited for tomorrow, I feel that my deadlift form is finally ready to add on some more weight and try it out. I've been really practicing keeping my back straight since EVERYONE on this site recommends proper form before weight ( as I believe as well ).

    Redspikything: THanks for stopping by man! Yeah, when I first started working out 7 months ago? I wouldnt even bench 2 25's on the bar. Was pretty embarrassing. I've come a long way since then! Still looking for more progress though!

    Very good workout today. Again, I walked out of the gym barely able to move. I started with DLs today and finished with SLDLS and my back feels AMAZING. Lucky there was like 3 people actualy doing machines/freeweights and the other 10 were running so I had the bench section to my self for deadlifts! Also, there's a mirror on all the walls so I watched and checked my form, I even got a complement on it! As for lunges, the weight is slowly moving up and my calve raises are flying up as are just about everything sept my weight Tomorrows upper body, I'm not sure what's my favorite anymore, bench or dls.

    Calve Raises:
    250x12
    250x12

    Wood Chops: (each set involves switching sides, so 12 on each side, 3 times)
    90x12
    90x12
    90x12

    Note:
    Finished my 4th week or atleast rotation of WBB 1.1 so I decided to change up the sets v. reps. I went with 3 sets of 12 for everything except squats, i'm just pushing those 5x6-8 trying to develop a technique and proper form blah blah blah you all know what I mean. Today was crazy after those ATF squats. Those seem to beat me up pretty bad but if you do something might as well do them right instead of half assed. Woodchops felt really good, finally gave my abbs some time to recover and this was the first time they were worked in a few days. Back was dead so I didn't do to many sldl
    s. Other then that, good stuff.

    Completely forgot curls today, no idea why. Bench was awesome, it felt so good. I didn't even know I could do 155x12, the last few times I struggled to get 8 ( plus I was nervous since I had no spotter ). I was alitte pissed off at the scale, it said 152 today. My gym use to have one that you stepped on with aneedle, this one is digital. It's amazing what and extra 3 reps can do in an exercise. Also, my gym had free pizza today, took all the strenght I had to not eat it lol. Anyways, I'm completely dead from the past two days and tomorrow is a well deserved rest day, hell yeah.
